Had to be me (warm color) by LaPareidolia Had to be me (warm color) by LaPareidolia
I had wanted to do a wallpaper of Mordin for a long time and now it's finally done!

I wasn’t sure if I liked Mordin at first in Mass Effect 2…but he quickly grew on me after chatting with him. He really made you stop and think if the Genophage was a good or bad idea. And of course his scientist salarian song and informative sex advice about Turians ;) really made me love him.
I think the whole Genophage cure part of Mass Effect 3 was a work of art. And even though I love Mordin I thought his death scene was so heroic and beautiful…I was just so full of sadness… but it wasn’t necessarily a bad feeling.
:iconimcryingsomuchplz:
So I really took my time with this wallpaper until I was sure that I couldn’t improve it anymore. And when I thought I couldn’t improve it anymore… I wouldn’t look at it for a week so I could look at it again with fresh eyes.

And watch right after I upload this... I'll find something to fix. I just know it! Haha
:iconwhyyplz:

*I took all these screenshots while playing Mass Effect 3 which belongs to Bioware.

*I uploaded 2 versions of this wallpaper
this is the warm color version
the cool color version is here--> [link]

Thoughts? Suggestions? Please?

Thank you so much :). He's one of the best characters and deserved his own wallpaper.

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the color scheme and the fonts you used for the text :)

While Mordin's death was, in my opinion, the saddest part in the game (especially because he didn't quite get to finish his song :() I think the curing of the genophage would have been incomplete. It was so sad but so perfect. He was right -- it had to be him because someone else would have gotten it wrong ;)

Thank you so much! The font was such a pain to decide on haha :shakefist:! And I totally agree his sacrifice made that whole Genophage part complete for me (even though it was incredibly sad) =(.

same as the purple picture. Though i think this color style fits Mordin better.

Agreed :). This is my desktop wallpaper at the moment. Although I might mix it up and use the white/blue one later haha.

I do the exact same thing with my images (if I can be bothered) and I have the exact same problem. Usually it takes about half an hour to 90 minutes before I see something that bugs me. Tis a pain. :P
