Dr. Chakwas by clc1997 Dr. Chakwas by clc1997
Another great Mass Effect character, Dr. Chakwas.
This one took about 2 hours, maybe a bit more. I think her face still needs some work.

Awesome Work,
 It's good to see Doc. She's in the first cut scene in Mass Effect and she still gets no love? Glad to see her getting some "Facetime".

Yes, it would have been nice if she got at least one mission with her.

At least she doesn't have some short blonde spanish-accented horndog talking about her magical bosom...

I love Chakwas <3 She was like a mother to my Shepard - am the last of a prestigious line of medical professionals. The Alliance is my spouse, and you’re all my children.
Wonderful work!

Chakwas doesn't get enough love. :D She looks gorgeous in this.

Re: crit -- she looks really young here. Given how grey her hair is, she should have more lines on her face, and look less young.

The colour scheme is lovely. Her clothing matches her eyes.

I know she looks a bit young, but she's not particularly wrinkled up in the game either. If it wasn't for her service record and back story, and we just went on looks alone, I'd say she was about 40. She must have had some work done.

Yeah, they don't really do older people well in video games. In video games they usually just have grey hair, they're lucky if they have lines on their face, but they have the bodies of young people. Can be pretty frustrating. My mother's 50 years old and doesn't have nearly as much grey hair as Chakwas, but Chakwas has the body of someone half her age. Nobody should have that much grey hair in their 40s, which is the oldest Chakwas looks in-game.

But, ack, that's just me griping at Bioware, sorry if it sounds like I'm sniping at you there, 'cause I'm not. :P

Oh gosh, Karin, Y U so amazing ^.^
I think her left eye is a little bit too close to the nose, a bit of a squint there ;)
I actually like the fact she looks younger than in-game. Makes You think she was the hottest Doctor in the Fleet forever and ever :D

I think you are right her eye is a bot off center.
Yes, she's always the hottest Doctor. Thank you for commenting!

I'm an optician, so I pay more attention to eyes, I guess... First thing I look at in every person, drawn or real ;)
