The Suspended Oscillation Device by MoonEcho The Suspended Oscillation Device by MoonEcho
UPDATE: As requested by several, I've uploaded one that's a wee bigger. 1600px tall for your downloading pleasure.

Full Title: The Happy Accidents of the Suspended Oscillation Device.

Alternate title: Foliage everywhere holy crap :noes::noes::noes::noes::noes:

So! This is a silly reproduction of the classic painting Les Hasards Heureux de l'Escarpolette (a.k.a. The Happy Accidents of the Swing) by the master Jean-Honoré Fragonard. Obvious difference being that mine is ridiculous and Mass Effect themed.

Why, though? For :iconearendil87:'s Romance DLC project, that's why. Go check it out. Also: for lols. Once I thought of Kaidan as the clueless Old Husband and Garrus as the Young Lover In The Bushes, I laughed and laughed and laughed. And I am a creature mostly driven by whimsy.

I regret having to put Shepard in a frilly pink dress, but there just wasn't a good way to subtract that from the composition. I tried to compensate for that by putting her in golden combat boots. +10% fancy damage, amirite?

Also, lemme know if anyone wants a bigger size of this uploaded. I'm never sure what looks good to everyone else because I work at a weird resolution. Buh.

PS. Oh hey, while I'm still getting attention for this, on the subject of a theoretical Romance DLC: Needs moar Lorik Qui'in. That is all.

This was the best and most ironic thing to pop up in my feed in a good long while(I've been binging the games over spring break). You should make this available as a print. I have a burning desire to have it on my wall in an elegant antique frame.

Dah! I'm glad you enjoy it!

When I first posted this, I got a smattering of interest for prints, so on a lark, I had a local printer print a small batch (chiefly, to sniff out the quality of print services in my area). I never really planned on having it available-available. But I do have still have a small stack of 11x17 prints remaining.

If you like, shoot me a message sometime. I'd be happy to send one in your direction. :D

You did a really great job blending Mass Effect with the rococo style- it's incredibly fascinating looking back and forth between this and the originL picture and seeing stuff like a petrified Prothean standing in for Cupid.

Also, Garrus looks amazing in that suit. I can't take my eyes off him. :blushes:

It's a good idea to keep your eyes on Garrus, anyway. He's more dangerous when you can't see where he is. Suspicious

I love all the little details. The reaper, the golden husk, and the pyjack.
For me, Mass Effect is my favorite game series (and Garrus is life :) ) so I definitely love this!

This is ridiculous, one of my most favourite paintings done in a fabulous way with Mass Effect.
I'm so excited to find this, especially because it's so well done too!
Your attention to detail is amazing and your rendering and execution, holy shit. 
I'm completely blown away and inlove. ♥♥♥ Amazing work!

This is.... I have not the words with which to pontificate upon its magnificence. So that should tell you something. And yes, we all need more Lorik Qui'in. And turians in general. And salarians. Aaaand yeah. I'm just gonna shut my xenophile mouth up. :shifty:
Anyway, this is awesome.

This is fantastic! Not only for the obvious humor, but the fact it's a master study disguised as fan art? I admire that!

I love the details you've hidden, as well as reading about the "Bergère hat" from the Wikipedia link - strangely appropriate.

Thanks! This piece really was a happy accident, since it only really occurred to me after the Cosmic Love founders recruited me to contribute to their project. Whether or not I do something like this again I suppose depends on if I can find any other brilliant masterworks to riff off of :XD:
