And Zia Makes Three by HuggyBear742 And Zia Makes Three by HuggyBear742
Little Benezia proves to be a quick study as she handily defeats dad in a game of Kepesh-Yakshi, aka "space-chess".

My first try at making an original character. I really liked the idea of "little blue babies" and found some spectacular 2D illustrations of baby asari, but almost no 3D art. Here's my attempt to fill that void.
Kudos if you can identify all of Zia's toys. Clap

Wrex has gleefully predicted that, when she reaches the Matron stage, Zia will drown the galaxy in blood as the deadliest battlemaster who ever lived. Liara has coldly warned him not to encourage her.

Behind Shepherd, there is a horse.

For the first time in his life, Shepard faces a scenario where he can't win.

This is so cute, I'm going to share it on a fan page on Facebook.
I'll make sure to give you full credit :thumbsup:

Incredibly cute. BUT shouldn't Shepard be much older?
RickOShay1 Featured By Owner Edited Feb 6, 2015
LOL, what I see:

Zia: YAY! We're going to *insert name of theme park* !!!

Liara: Oh, we're going to have such fun, dear.

Shepard: I dunno honey... look at the price...

P.S. I see an action figure that looks, inexplicably, an awful lot like Jack, and I see one or two Grunt action figures... As for what's in Zia's hand, well, let me guess, it's Garrus?
VarricTethas Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015
Jack? is Merrill.
BlueEyedBrigadier Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2014
Shepherd was probably expecting to be beaten at Kepesh-Yakshi by Zia one day...but probably not this soon.


Amazing, amazing work, HuggyBear472! Liara's amused expression alone sells this, let alone the reactions by father and daughter to said daughter's crushing victory :D

Then again Shepard sucks at chess anyways.
Jeyemaitch Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2014
is that kid asari available anywhere??
Dusterboy Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2014
I love this... and the other one's in this sequence.
I'd love to see more of "the Shepard family", because Zia is adorable.
Skarfar90 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2014
Awesome work (Y)
This is exactly what I have been thinking of, ever since I heard Shep and Liara discussing "all the blue children"
btw.. I'm currently writing a fan-fiction, and I wonder about "borrowing" the idea of Shep and Liara having a daughter called Benezia, Only difference is that my Shepard is female!

I only have one word to say to you about this picture. Thank you.

merle Featured By Owner May 16, 2014
I favor FemShep, but damn if this isn't adorable as hell.
Hamof1 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014
Not an issue, if you'll recall, Asari are all women, and as such have absolutely no issues having kids with other women.

Zia: "I kicked your ass Daddy."
Sheperf "You've got to stop hanging out with Traynor so often."
Liara "Ahem."
Sheperd "Oh and Jack too I guess." 
darkian343 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
i think you did a great job on the little one even with Wrex's kid you did a good job man :D
die-yng Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2014
I love those pictures with Zia. Is there any chance you'll do one with a Femshep in the future?

Not that there's anything wrong with broshep, just that my head canon is with Femshep, so I would love to see that as well.

Let me repeat that I absolutely love Zia, you've really made my day with those pictures. Thanks!

Love how their robotic dog is peaking up curiously in the corner of the picture. Makes this scene all the more priceless and adorable :")

Anything but that!

Oh, god no!
jetsparhawk91 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014
You should have traynor teaching Zia how to play chess.  I have to admit though I was so mad when the game makes your shepard actually lose chess. I say that because I play in speed chess championships in California. I really like what you have done. As seeing stuff like this would have made perfect slides for the extended ending of ME3. If there was a mod to have your images show up at the end of the rest of the game I'd install it in a heart beat.
SirMandokarla Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014
You didn't think it was a nice little touch that the game gave Shepard a little character of its own? I thought Shepard being terrible at both chess and dancing was hilarious and wonderful, especially considering Shepard's potential unquestionable perfection (being an RPG character, after all). Of course, it would have been nice to be informed of it beforehand, perhaps by it being mentioned that (s)he's never played chess before.

I would buy an entire game just for this any day of the week.

The faces!! Those faces are to die for!! While trying to console her hubby that yes, those are the odds you take when going up on asari child, add that with genes of a human spectre . . .

Shepard looks dumbfounded. Priceless. And cute lil Zia is just a child who's won and happy. XD

And OH! That's why you named her Zia, Benzeia . .. . Like I keep telling you!! All those lil things!!<3

Love your work huggybear! Really nice happy ending with Liara which we were denied by the game. Would love more like this and maybe with other female romance options. I personally like it without femshep.
