The Sea of Light by Sorael-Ignis The Sea of Light by Sorael-Ignis
As promised, here is my actually proper drawing of Irikah for an early Valentine's Day piece :D

When I last drew her, she had dark eyes...I'm...not sure why I did that honestly, because the most distinguishable thing about her you hear from Thane is her eyes. So needless to say I had a hard time trying to keep the feminine part of her intact without making her look human.
My first attempt came out veeerrry weird XD; However I'm very happy with how it came out :3 I tried to give it a very dream-like atmosphere, as if she's in the sea of the afterlife. I'll be bringing more VDay drawings soon :D

here's the sketch I did a while back: [link]

She is beautiful. I would have liked to see some picture of her in mass effect, it is thanks to her that Thane was the assassin we met. She deserves more appreciation really. I love how you made her though, very brilliant.

Thank you! I hope they take things like this in consideration for the next Mass Effect despite it not being about Shepard anymore. The other races are far too interesting to let pass up.

Maybe it's what is taking so long, more alien design this time around. We can only hope.

What a cutie! She looks so graceful and lithe - and respect to you for not slapping a pair of breasts onto her as well. Hope to see more of her!

That... is absolutely amazing. So beautiful. You can see why anyone would be instantly entranced by her. Forget sunset eyes... she pretty much is the sunset in this picture. The Thane in my head is so probably going to see his wife in every sunset, now.

Exceptional work. I really love the light and the almost translucent quality to the fabric of the bottom of her dress.

That's essentially how I pictured her, even if his memory is perfect, I imagine this is how she graces it. Thank you for the charming comment :3

Gorgeous! I love female Drell concepts, especially of Irikah. The eyes are my favorite part. All I've seen was only the irises were colored, not the whole eye. This'll totally go into my collection for sure.

Thank you very much! Her eyes were really difficult (probably why so many are drawing her with dark eyes) difficult as in making her look beautiful without gaping like an actual frog haha.

Eyes are ALWAYS hard, it's like a law or something.

I noticed in Thane's trailer for the game, his eyes were huge dark green irises, like you have Irikah with sunset gold. I take it you caught that too, and kootoes to you again. :3
