I always headcanon'd her as starting up and heading a new intelligence apparatus for the Alliance after Cerberus bit the dust (even though Cerb's help was more the "Stop helping me" kind for the Alliance).

I always liked Miranda, she was a strong female lead that supplemented the main lead being a male (at least in my version and games). She had flaws like any other character and was a character that grew, especially in ME3.

It's great to see her back on the Normandy as XO. Top stuff. :D

Poor Miranda... she's now part of the Alliance, part of the problem on why the galaxy is so fucked up

Hey there Huggybear! I have a sneaking suspicion I may have previously asked for permission and shared artwork by you on one of the two Facebook fanpages I admin (I admin 2: one is called Mass Effect Female Shepard, the other Mass Effect Miranda Lawson). Now, forgive me if I've asked this before, or even asked before for the same things... but I've just finished my PhD and in the run up to that last year I was not exactly focused on my pages, or posting things. I asked a lot of artists for permissions, and then never got around to sharing their works (apologies if you're one of them!). Anyway another fan page that always gives credits to artists (Arts of Mass Effect Universe) posted one of your pieces and reminded me how utterly awesome your stuff is... which lead me here.

ANYWAY... would it be OK for me to post this awesome Miranda piece you've done onto Mass Effect Miranda Lawson - www.facebook.com/FemShep please pretty please please?!

I run the page "as Miranda" and through it raise awareness of the sorts of things I think she'd care about. I post anything from the wrongful sexual objectification of women to scientific progress in all sorts of areas and especially space things/xenobiology, to artwork relating to Miranda and random fashion interests (I try to pick up the occasional photo shoots that the voice actress does and pretend that Miranda follows her because she finds "Whatever that woman wears usually fits me" LoL). This particular picture of yours would fit well into her albums on film, TV and media articles - I may make up a story for where it has come from (perhaps a magazine special on "Shepard's Team - backgrounds of the people who brought down the Reapers").

I'm now going to post a similar request on another piece you've done of Miranda!

Hi there! Just wanted to let you know I posted your picture today, many thanks and here's a link to where it is now: www.facebook.com/MiriLawBringe… - I took the liberty of inventing a story that this is one of a series of features of the Normandy crew (full 2-page spreads) in the interstellar magazine "HuggyBear" (copyright HuggyBear742) and provided a link back to your original here. :)

On a side note, I've seen you pull off Jack as well. Do you plan to do Ashley, Liara and Garrus in this format?

Maybe, though I'll probably use the default ME3 armors for those characters, so differences won't be as dramatic.

If only she'd dressed this sensibly in the actual game.  The sexy skintight bodysuit was all fine and good when lounging about the Normandy, but she really needed combat armor for actual missions (not to mention a helmet for environmental hazards).  seriously, the first Mass Effect got this right; why so much fail in the sequels?


Well, I know why, but that never made blatant male pandering it any less disappointing.

Oh come on, they gave you dlc so she could be in armor, I prefer her sexy catsuits, she could use a kinetic barrier like the yahg in lotsb....he didn't have to wear armor last time I checked
Reply
:icontharag:
Tharag Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014

And biotic Shepards can also use biotic barriers, but s/he still wears conventional armor like any sensible person would when going into heavy fire combat.  Admittedly there are some highly stylized genres where it's perfectly expectable and even expected for the heroes to forego protective gear, and in those types of setting I even enjoy.  Mass Effect was, however, for the most part going for a more realistic depiction of such things, at least in the first game.


You like Miranda's catsuits, fine; more power to you.  That's actually one of the nice perks of customizable equipment in videogames, because it means everyone can tailor the experience to their own preferences.   My problem isn't that Miranda can go into combat in slinky leather, but rather that it's the only option by default.  Having to pay extra just to have her follow suit of the more practically sensible females from the first game is not an adequate solution.  Besides, even with her DLC armor the problem persist that she has no helmet, which seriously breaks immersion on levels set in the vacuum of space.  Though of course Miranda was hardly alone on that last issue, and it bothers me just as much with every character who lacks a helmet.

In fairness, several other characters besides Miranda don't wear much armor either. Not everyone who is combat capable wears armor you know. Mordin doesn't. Samara doesn't. Liara doesn't (though it is an option for her). Jack doesn't. Why pick on Miranda's outfit exclusively? And as to the "realistic" argument, I don't buy that. Mass Effect is no more or less realistic than most other fictions where characters get by without armor. Armor's not for everyone you know.
