Kaidan by Aisling88 Kaidan by Aisling88
Another Mass Effect fanart, I just love the game. :D Kaidan Alenko, again. This is part of a (planned) series of ME portraits, I already started one of Garrus in a very similar style. However, there's no telling when it will be finished ...

I actually finished this one a couple of weeks ago, but due to computer trouble I wasn't able to prepare it for upload.

Garrus better watch out, Kaidan suspects something.

When I got Mass Effect I was like, "Wait-- I hear Carth! WHere's that coming from?" And then I saw this Kaidan dude and I was like, "oh, hey! What are you doing with Carth's voice mister!? :<" and it took me a while to take him seriously but now I think I'm used to it and now I like him a lot. XDDD

As a new Fan of Mass Effect (I am actualy playing the number 2), I thank you as well for this beautiful and amazing portrait of Kaidan Alenko, one of my faves chars of the game. Can't wait to see if he'll be reunited with my female Shephard in ME3 ;-)

Wonderful work !

It was very important to me to have him look as closely as possible to the ingame-version, so I was using tons of screenshots for reference. And I'm very glad to hear that, apparently, I was successful. :nod:

wow!! this is just gorgeous. I was googling some Kaidan images for reference material myself, and I also mistook it for a screenshot. ^__^

very excellent work, spot-on. :heart: :heart:

you captured him perfectly! I love the detail on the hairline and the lips especially. :glomp:

So far this is the best portrait of Kaidan I've seen on DA - you caught the true essence of kaidaness. Amazing job. I purely love him.

I've recently turned into a Kaidan fangirl ^_^

Yes, my favourite team also consistest of Kaidan and Garrus, or Wrex in more combat-heavy missions. :D

Yeah, isn't he great? I'm just replaying ME together with a friend and I'm already swooning over dear Kaidan again. :giggle:

Yea, I have no idea why most people find Liara better?
I just wonder slap her, when she starts hitting on you...
Kaidan is so much better than her...
Reply
:iconaisling88:
Aisling88 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009
Well, I don't particulary dislike Liara, in fact I think she's all right as a person. But since I'm not a fan of girl on girl action (and no matter how often people state that Liara is in fact sexless, she looks female), I'll chose Kaidan every time. :nod: And why shouldn't I? He's such I nice, down to earth guy. I can't understand why some people think he's a sissy.

yay, only a real man isn't affrid to cry, if that's the expression goes...
Liara is okay, but she can get on yours nerves, sometimes I want to leave her on Virmia (can't spell) instead of Ashley.

:iconaisling88:
Aisling88 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009
Yeah, it's a shame that you have to leave either Ash or Kaidan behind ... both characters really grew on me, but on the other hand, this probably was the purpose of this whole disaster. ;)

:icon4theonewithoutaname:
4TheOneWithoutAName Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009
yea, I always send Kaidan down to the AA tower, mainly because he sounds better on the raido income.
Well atleast Ashley has a movie, Kaidan don't for some reason?
Reply
:iconaisling88:
Aisling88 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009
Hm, for me it was the other way round ... Kaidan has a movie, Ashley hasn't. I let him stay with the bomb though to pick him up later ... maybe that's the reason? :shrug:

I haven't been having a very good day today, but this really brightened it up! I love Kaidan! I'd say that he's my favorite romance option, but as he's the *only* option for us ladies, well... :giggle: He's still great. And this is AMAZING! :faint:

Well, thanks! Hearing that this brightend up your day did the same to my day. :) I'm very glad you like it!
And, obviously, I'm quite a Kaidan fan myself. :giggle: I really liked the romance with him, and his whole character.

:highfive: Great to run into another Kaidan fan! I always find one or two, but they're too busy drooling over him to think about the quality of his character. XD
Reply
:iconaisling88:
Aisling88 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2008
Ah well, I spend quite some time drooling over Kaidan, too. :giggle:
But besides his looks, I'm also very fond of his character. It's refreshing to have a romance option who is able to look after himself for a change. Most male romance options in computer games are quite angsty (not that this is necessarily bad ;)), and Kaidan being such a nice, relatively normal guy was a nice change, I think.

Mm, you're precisely right. I'm sitting here thinking about the other male romance options I've run into and am becoming very appreciative of Kaidan. I mean, the darling stood up for a girl and kicked serious butt. THAT is one quality I like very much!
