Introductory remark: I'm no artist and this work was done simply by posing the character models in XNALara followed by editing with Paint.NET. For all credits see below.
Not long after I completed my first playthrough of Mass Effect 3 I came across this work [link]
from fellow deviant ~alireya and totally shared her need to create "some proof that Shepard was found after all and everything went well". So, here is my try at this.
The background for this picture is that the Reapers have been "DESTROYed" and the Normandy has been able to get back to Earth from the uncharted planet just in time to assist the recovery teams in rescuing a wounded Shepard from the Citadel. After some time, Shepard has recovered from his injuries, massive repairs have been undergoing everywhere in the Galaxy including the Citadel.
For the re-opening night of the Flux on the Citadel, the volus owner Doran declared that Commander Shepard and his partner Lieutenant Williams would always get free drinks at the Flux. Shepard and Ashley took the chance to spend a night there to celebrate and had this picture taken.
