THIS MONTH'S CHALLENGE "Mass Effect"

Environment: The Mass Effect series has some great environments. Indoors, outdoors, is up to you. Reference is the key here, the challenge is to make your environment as close to your reference as possible. Assets like Megascans are allowed, as is of course original art. Be sure to include the reference with your submission.

Material: There is a lot of flexibility here, Armor, fabric, trimsheets, skin. The focus is on matching the style and aesthetic of the ME Universe. Be sure to include the reference(s) with your submission.

Props: ME has a ton of gear, weapons, gadgets and iconic props. Choose your favorite and recreate it! Reference reference reference, include it with your submission!

Character: So many to choose from! Whether is Shepard, Talia, Jack, Geth, Krogan, the choice is yours! Snag your favorite character or race and sculpt/model away! Your reference needs to be a part of your submission.

Animation: Combat! Combat animations, reloads, dodges, rolls, executing powers. Good animations can make or break a game's combat immersion. These short animations have a huge impact on the feel and flow of a game. Bring your A-game and create some great combat anims!
