Garrus Vakarian, from Mass effect, possibly one of the most kick-arse aliens ever!
This was painted for my housemate who is absolutely in love with this series, and in particular, Garrus.
It took a little while to work out how to paint his 'skin', since its not exactly something I've done before.
Photoshop cs5 + wacom ~ 10 hours
Lens flare from [link]
Ref was a screenshot from ingame.
The two galaxies are from the Hubble telescope site: [link]
Edit: Ah I forgot his tattoos/ paint
Updated the file, he has them now
