I like renegade FemShep. Ruthless women are my favourite.Renegade Icon

Can you add some text like "When you always choose Paragon, but they choose Renegade"? I feel like the meme is needed.

My first Shepard was soldier, spacer sole survivor, paragon, but dead serious with some big renegade choices:
M1 Council left to die. Sovereign had to be destroyed, no matter the cost. (And council ignored all my warnings).
M2 Non-combat crew died on suicide mission. And Zaeed by accident.
M3 Destroy ending. Sorry Edi and Geth. Your sacrifice wont be forgotten.
Rest was mostly paragon. Still my fav Shep so far.

I was Renegadely-paragon. (Using my ruthlessness to do paragon things.) :D GO RUTHLESS SHEPARD!!!! WOOHOOO!!!!

I love this! My Female Shepard is Renegade and Engineer. My Male Shepard is Paragon and Adept :)

FemShep voice suggest renegade, male voice - paragon I think. I played many times as paragon, but renegade is awesome (in ME2 and ME3, renegade wasn't so badass in ME1). 

But for me - it depends on background of our character, I think I'm personally renegade 60% renegade/40% paragon :D

Il rend super en poster aussi! :D ma Shepard ressemble vraiment Ó ša sauf la cicatrice, et que j'en ai fait une sympa dans le 3 (alors que dans le 2 je crois que c'Útait une pragmatique).
Aeleks Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's funny because my shepard is a male and he is a paragon and my femshep is a renegade :)

Hero Paragon Mshep is only Shepard for me.
molla91 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012
I like this especially the femsheps expression so god demn cold and yet warm in a way.
Leonhart-Strife Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
I take a third option. Paragade.

Samuel Shepard: Earthborn, Sole Survivor, Infiltrator

Kara Shepard: Colonist, Ruthless, Vanguard

I play my Shepards like Captain Mal from Firefly, with a few variations (Samuel tends to be more polite than Kara). In general, they're a dick to everyone but their crew.
CommanderZero1 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Funny mines the other way around, other than that they both look very nice together.
Female:Paragon, Colonist, and Survivor
Male:Renegade,Earthborn, Ruthless

Paragon definedly. Has a better voice actor. Hoho!

Renegade for life.
zangon123 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011
paragon, but deep inside i wanted renegade
Freethinker5 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2011
All Paragon for me. I'd like to think the Paragon options wouldnbe how I would react to the given situations. (They do make more sense when I play the game.) Plus this world needs to get back to "nice guy" heroes again! Enough with these anti-social neanderthals, I like being an officer and a gentleman!
anime-videogamefreak Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011
awesome love it
Freethinker5 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011
Finally someone makes Guy Shepard the good guy. I personally always thought Jennifer Hale's voice acting sounded passionate, fiery, and fierce. While Mark Meer's sounded more calm, centered, and steady.

Paragon all the way

Well, this is just awesome! I love the lighting and the background~
I always saw femshep as a renegade and maleshep as a paragon, you captured them nicely here xD

Renegade femshepards are hot
eris-11 Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2011  Student Writer
Cool! Both paths are great, but seriously, regardless of gender, renegade Shep has some of the best quotes and dialogue in the game.
"You can either follow me or get crushed under my heel, but you will NOT get in my way!"
"Hey everybody! This store discriminates against the poor!"
Avilels Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011
this is amazing
ZodiacEclipse Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I always have to play at least twice. I have a femshep Paragon and a dudeshep Renegade just to see more of the awesome dialogue options in this game.
Ozzelll Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
I've got a weakness for bad/renegade women. So I like that femshep is renegade in this picture.
Yukira37 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
I find it nice that it's the male that is paragon and the female renegade and not the other way around.

This is really well drawn !

(I hope the paragon road don't end with a I-sacrifice-myself-for-humanity thing !)
MrSpartin Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I usually can't choose renegade without feeling guilty after so I go paragon.
hally255 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2011  Student Digital Artist
i like to go paragon but renegade is much more fun
RickF7666 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2011
Great job, but I voted for Blond FemShep.
CHendren Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2011  Student General Artist
I did both for both. But I used the same armor setups you did apparently.
MourekDA Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2011
paragon sheploo all the way... finish the game atleast 10 times as paragon sheploo or i die
parijatgaur Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist

I love Paragon Sheploo. :D

Awesome piece! Really clever that you show the respective armor colors to their moral roles. ^_^

Riveriia Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My Shepard is Paragon XDD. But she has some renegade fun, too. Her scars are only like half-healed, with a bit of glowy red. But yeah mostly paragon
thetricia Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My default Shep is a Renegon. Mostly Renegade, but has a weak spot for asari and quarians and ends up with a lot of Paragon points from missions involving them, especially Liara.
DoctorHyper826 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Male renegade, Female Shep has moments of aggression!!

Brilliant drawing I love how you've done the texture of their armour, very cool
