The Commander and her engineers and her cockpit crew take a break on their way to Hawking Eta, and use this opportunity to play a tense game of cards with real credits on the line. EDI is designated the dealer, due to her tendency to count cards and play the statistics. Joker has a pretty obvious tell (as well as a penchant for girlie drinks), and Commander Shepard clearly knows about it. Ken is getting a little too drunk and holds when he ought to fold. Gabby, however, takes the game very seriously and wants to hang on to her hard-earned creds. But um, wait. If they're all here, who the heck is flying the ship? Oh crap, I hope it's not Vega.
I've been wanting to do a piece for a long time now that featured EDI and Joker, and one that featured Gabby and Ken, (who are two of my very favorite side-characters--I love those two). So I decided to put them all in the same pic. But what kind of thing would be happening for them all to be together? Why, card games of course! And wouldn't you know it, there is already a card table onboard the Normandy, so viola!
It took about 20 hours in photoshop from beginning to end, and I'm pretty proud of it. And I know you guys like my Mass Effect cartoons, so, enjoy!
I'll put prints up for sale if you guys want.
So, I think my next one of these will be another action scene. I've done a lot of downtime ones so far and need to balance it out. I'm thinking an away mission and perhaps I'll give Dr. Chawkwas some much-needed screentime
