Mass Effect by Isaac-Volpe Mass Effect by Isaac-Volpe
Tenth in a series of video game posters.

The goal is to represent each title though basic elements featured in the game that would be immediately recognizable.

For Mass Effect a key piece of technology that allows for the communication and travel through the galaxy is the mass relay system. Each node significantly improved the technological advancement and culture of a nearby species and humans were no exception. Including this central artifact is quite appropriate for the poster.

Others in the series:

It's been a while...
Anyway, before I start wasn't the Omega 4 Relay in ME 2 only? I'ne never played the first one so I don't know.
When I first saw this piece of art your technique really impressed me: I mean the combination of a 2D enviroment and the 3D orb inside of it. I really love the idea. That's why I gave full on 5 stars on Technique & Impact. It was simply amazing.
Now, what I don't like so much is that you actually chose the Omega 4 Relay, I understand that it plays a very big part in the story of ME and actually other installments in the series, but it isn't what defines Mass Effect. When I think of Mass Effect I think of the characters mostly and the story, but the Relay is not the first thing that comes into my mind. And if I am not mistaken your series is based on the idea of showing a simplistic piece of art which lets you remember the game and how amazing it was.
That's the reason why your vision rating is so low.
I put Originality a bit higher BECAUSE you thought of the Omega-4 Relay when doing the poster, I wouldn't and I'm pretty sure not a lot of people would've gotten your idea.
Keep doing what you're doing because you're good at it.
What do you think?

I like the relay but I find that 3D sphere within the relay (it looks 3d to me) combined with the 2D structure of the relay itself looks weird to me.  However I really like your font choice.

If you do a mass effect 2 one, you should do the cerberus logo for that :)

After seeing so much fancy-arty ME stuff, it's refreshing to see such a simplistic approach. This is awesome.

Good choice! Mass Effect would have been a really hard one for me. Maybe the front of a Reaper's face?

One of the new designs does incorporate the reapers in it, to be honest though to me they didn't seem that big a deal until the third game, hehe, at least if you want to visually represent what is going on.

You know I did have it up as a print for a short time, but dA did let me know that I could not sell it through them, hehe, not a surprise though. Maybe I'll set up an etsy or something soon for prints.

I've tried to print some out on shirts but it's always proven to be quite expensive, if not I'd be selling some on an etsy store or something, hehe, such a shame.

You should give it a try, this is more of an outline so it took no time at all. And gah still upset that ME3 got delayed, D=

yes, too bad it was delayed.
maybe I later give it a try at drawing the Omega Relay, I even have some screenshots for reference but I still have other pdrawings to finish.

This is really beautiful. I think you struck a good balance between maing it simpler and keeping enough of the unusual details to make it unmistakable. Great stuff.

Simplicity was the goal and even though perhaps a few lights could have been placed the basic shape is more than enough. Glad you liked it, =)

Amazing where you go go with a pair of tweezers these days. ;)

For worded simplicity, just saying "I should go..." would have the same 'effect'. :evillaugh:

Very straight-forward and appropriate for the game, with just a hint of mystery to it, just like the others in the series.

I love the design. Nearly perfect composition, in my opinion!
However, i do not like the Font in respect to the game. This font might be okay for things like Pikmin, but when i think Mass Effect i think of a font called "korataki". Its the same font that is used on the N7 armor logos.
If it had that font, or a similar font to it, i would buy a poster like this on the spot.

:iconisaac-volpe:
Isaac-Volpe Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011
Yes I understand, for now I've been using a template for the posters and the font has remained constant, however, I do see the need to have fonts that will fit each respective game much more. I have put little thought into selling some of these designs in the future, if you're interested I'll be sure to let you know, =)

I'd might put it vertically, like the one in the presidium, and use concentric rings rather than just a sphere.

Hmm ... this is indeed a good idea. I do plan on revisiting each one of these designs when they are converted into shirts, I'll be sure to have a vertical design for that one as it would suit it quite well. Cheers, =)
