Just did her loyalty mission in 2. This girl needs so many hugs.
DMT-07 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2015
Aww.  This makes me sad for her all over again.  Yes, Kip, she does need lots of hugs.
But remember:  We are what we repeatedly do.  And Jack has spent a lot of time being angry and hostile.  It will be a loooong time before she could be a well-balanced human being.  It makes for interesting story-telling, but it's still a tragedy.
At least, without neurotronics and other brain-editing tech.  If not for that, would be bad.
Please don't be sad, Jack!
This is a really well-done piece of art.  But I would really like to see Jack happy and beautiful-sexy instead of vulnerable and dangerous-sexy.
Like anything, we just have to care enough to do it.
Just wait for the rest of the romance. I love her.

great work, very cool

This an interesting approach but I wont lie: I don't like seeing Jack in this vulnerable position like this :(. It's too out of character
AlphaCrucis Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014
Mmm, considering Jack's history, I think this is very possible due to certain outcomes. She obviously had a lot of emotional issues, most due to Cerberus's experiments on her. When talking to Jack you find that she had been in a relationship before, a seemingly serious one. She cries a bit when telling Shepard that the guy died saving her. After continually talking to and romancing her you see how she gets attached to Shepard, initially not wanting to because everyone either dies, leaves her, or betrays her. Assuming you do romance her; if Shepard did die I'm sure she'd breakdown like this. 
AMusoke Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Aaaah, true that! I forgot, I don't really know why I romanced her, but I did anyway-she probably one of the most complex characters in that game hy
AlphaCrucis Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2014
Yeah, she really is an amazing character. In fact, all the characters in Mass Effect 2 were awesome, especially their personal missions. Jack really stood out for me, though. She's the most powerful human biotic ever encountered, tough and mean as hell, original and great design, and had a great story.

That was such a good game, fudge-you know I have yet to find a game that can compare in depth and artistis awesomess. What did you think of the ME3 ending just for interests sake??
AlphaCrucis Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014
Same here. Not too many games get you so involved like this series did, especially because our decisions make the game unique to us. To be honest, I was really disappointed in the ending. Actually, ME3 overall disappointed me, because it was such a downgrade from the second, disregarding graphics and gameplay. I don't hate the ending they gave it ( the god child and only 3 choices), but I hated how the endings were so similar even with the extended cut DLC. I wish Bioware gave us truly unique endings showing that our choices throughout the 3 games actually affected the ending. But I still love 3, because it was a great experience.
AMusoke Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Dude I loved Mass Effect 3, the gameplay was so much more fluid and dynamic. (Damnit, I think I'm going to install and play it again TONIGHT :D!). But you are right, the begining and end of any artistic composition (game, song, book etc)-are cruuucial. The endings could have been much better. Hell, someone on deviantart wrote an alternate ending at it got some massive popularity at one stage. I hope bioware get working on similar titles that allow for a unique experience: they can only learn from these mistakes :XD:

I agree however everyone is aloud to drop their armor. Even Jack.

awesome work !... she is my fav character !
Hamsterloki Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012
Gawd.. No matter how tough she looks, or how mad at me she'd be, I'd fucking love to hug the hell out of Jack.. This is why I always choose her over Liara. Liara has the rest of her thousands of year long lifespan to find someone else. Jack needs someone -now-.
SirenofAgni Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012
Stunning piece of art.

I am really curious about the backs of her arms though. From what I can recall, there are some bits that look like circuitry that I found really appealing but I've been having trouble finding good screenshots of it.

Anyway, once again, absolutely stunning. Jack is definitely one of my favorite ME characters and you've portrayed her anguish and vulnerability beautifully.

Oh wow, how sad... this feels like a private moment in her cabin where she's facing the ghosts of her past after detonating the bomb at the Cerberus base that experimented on her.
Canis44 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012
You are great at what you do, you convey a great emotional effect with this piece.

idk how you do these but this is my personal favorite. Now if only your Liara link wasn't taken down (broken?) because I'd love to see what you did with that one.
MadSpike Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I delete her :)
I think I made a better one based on Mass Effect 3 soon )))
ParagonProxy Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012
Aww, fair enough :D I love what whoever is in charge of character models is doing with Liara. Her eyes convey every emotion and maturity growth, it's incredible.
MadSpike Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can still check her out in Wallpaper version [link]

Astonishing work, well done! I don't actually like Jack but the way you have painted her, the despair it describes, it is amazing!
