Heavy Metal Quarian by upshdragoon Heavy Metal Quarian by upshdragoon
A little fantasy of mine, heh. A quarian rocking out to metal. The torso section of the suit has clear portions on it, plus the hands. Her name is Uri'Danus nar Bodos. Special thanks goes to Volrath for his proportion advice.

For those who actually know the guitar she's holding, please forgive me for screwing up the headstock. For those who don't, it's an Alexi 600 scythe, signature guitar of Children of Bodom's lead guitarist Alexi Laiho. COB is my absolute favorite band for melodic death metal, I have at least one song from all their albums.

If I had to choose two songs as my favorite from each album it would be:

Something Wild: Lake Bodom, Touch like Angel of Death
Hatebreeder (best album evar!): Downfall, Bed of Razors
Follow the Reaper: Everytime I Die, Bodom After Midnight
Hate Crew Deathroll: Sixpounder, Angels Don't Kill
Are You Dead Yet?: Are You Dead Yet?, In Your Face
Blooddrunk: Done with Everything, Die for Nothing , Banned from Heaven
Relentless Reckless Forever (worst album so far): Was It Worth It, Roundtrip to Hell and Back

And she would be playing 'Downfall', though the solo would be nearly impossible for a three-fingered sapient. XD

Quarians belong to BioWare

Alexi 600 guitar belongs to ESP/LTD

EDIT: This is a re-upload, I had to fix the lighting around the hood/veil.

nicely drawn, i've never really seen a Quarian before to day (not a huge fan if i'm honest) however, i can spot a good piece of art (and a good music taste) when i see one.

one thing to say, thats isn't the 600-Scythe, it looks like the old Alexi-600 WH... or on a closer look, the old 200 WH with custom pinstripes.

the new 600 Scythe dosn't have the sawtooth inlays, it has scythes (hence the name XD), and all of Alexi's current models have different pinstripes, they look more like the old Jackson RR stripes now. and all of the 600 models old and new have ebony fingerboards, they it's almost pitch black, this one looks like rosewood, like on the 200's

still a good drawing though. (and yes i'm a guitar geek!)

I've got a feeling that if one were to foolishly disrupt one of her concerts they'd have parts of their skull as new parts of a suit she might have.

IMO Bioware should add a metalband to a club along with some grumpy aliens in the crowd going "humans call this music?" etc :D

That's freaking awesome. I always wondered what type of sub-cultures might exist in the ME universe and a see through suit? Very creative concept for showing sterile space cleavage.

"And she would be playing 'Downfall', though the solo would be nearly impossible for a three-fingered sapient."

Trust me, if man kind can pull off something like "toccata and fugue in D minor" (shit just got classy) with just 2 hands armed with five fingers each when the song seems to have been designed to be played by some weird ass mutant with 10 arms and 20 fingers on each hand then a Quarian could pull off the solo.

I would pay loads of money to see a quarian play that solo, heh. I still curse BioWare to this very day for not giving Quarians at least one more digit on their hands. It's kind of annoying seeing the three-fingered hand trend with the alien species in Mass Effect.

Yeah, it is kinda annoying, I mean what are the odds that almost every species would either have 4 or 2 fingers, where are the 17 fingered aliens?

This is *really* good! If you ever make any more musical stuff featuring the crew of the Normandy please let me know! I've made an album of musical mass effect pics on Facebook (I'm firt admin to a page called "Mass Effect Female Shepard") and I put this pic in because it's fantastic. Linked back to the original here of course. :)

This is very awesome! I, myself, have delved into Quarians playing guitar in my fanfiction, so I know the feeling of satisfaction of realizing that idea :D. I love the mix of black and green.

Totally favoriting!
