Some time ago, I created a tumblr account (which can be found here).  I'm not sure if I will ever get around to posting anything in it (or figuring out how to use it), but if anyone wants to make requests there, feel free to do so.

This is just utterly incredible - I am in heaven with all these references ohmygod. Thank you sosososososo much ;u;

If I am not too late for the requests, references of the Geth Colossus would be so cool :,D

This is utterly amazing, and I wish to beg you for shots of the Mass Effect 3 Geth Prime (from the Multiplayer).

And on a related note, I am desperately trying to find references for the Biotic Hammer/Melee that the Krogan Sentinel uses in ME3 Multiplayer, but I can't find it anywhere! Including poking around the PCC files. If its not a bother for you, OR if you could give me pointers, I would deeply appreciate it!

This is a really awesome library. If you're still doing these, there's a few more I'd love to see:

For named, Conrad Verner outfits from all 3 games. But especially his civilian outfit from ME3. Dr. Michel and Dr. Chakwas. 

For generics, some of the non-dancer civilian outfits seen on NPCs around the Citadel. Especially human ones. Dresses and work clothes. Normandy crew uniforms from ME2.

Request: The Alliance Marine from the ME3 campaign, fully armored with helmet.

Still doing requests?  If so, Human-Reaper and perhaps the animation of the M7/M8 opening?

Nvm, didn't see it listed.

I'm currently working on a Mass Effect Tabletop RPG, and would love if you could put up some more of the armors in ME1, especially from the other races.
