Renegade female Shepard from Mass Effect. I really struggled with the lighting. Tried to get her to look creepy and intimidating but still sexy at the same time. It didn`t turn out right, oh well. Let me know what you think.
Whew, that is a lady that could break necks with her looks or her bare hands, end wars by yelling at politicians/quarian admirals, kill a colony's worth of husks with a faulty pistol and a stick, then drink a krogan under the table. Sexy. In the words of Urdnot Grunt: "She has no match."
Nice you did a good job on this one. I think the lighting issue you're talking about is because of that big bright light reflection in the center of the pic: it's quite distracting because it's the only bright area in a pic which is otherwise quite dark. And, of course, it draws the attention away from Shepard. Try to tone it down maybe.
