Sweet, Rich, Smooth by PenelopeSalt Sweet, Rich, Smooth by PenelopeSalt
Ah, the mellifluous Lorik Qui'in, Noveria's sophisticated onlooker. He bears an intimate appreciation for every sociopolitical nuance of the port's unfolding drama, yet remains comfortably on the outside looking in, lifting a liquor glass to its beautiful absurdity.

There's something rather delicious about him.

Trying out my new Prismacolor markers. About three hours, because I was feeling my way.

To be fair, if that were possible, that's all I would do. Reapers you say? What are those? I'm drinking here.

Shepard : ... well I won't keep you any longer
Lorik : "keep me" do humans find conversation to be a form of imprisonment? would explain thier reluctience to sit and talk.

Lorik has to be one of my favorite characters. That's saying a lot. Wonderful job in representing him :) I can just feel his icy smirk as he says something witty.

He's such a sweet, sophisticated character and who doesn't just love his human expressions? :)

Lorik pretty much IS Noveria to me. It's like, "okay i gotta shoot a million things and talk to some boring boring people andthenIgettotalktoLORIKyay!!!!" That's my mission plan in a nutshell.

Ha ha, I know, right? :D

I was so thrilled when I discovered some additional dialogue with him that I hadn't unlocked or whatever before. And another DA friend tells me there's even more. Droools. :)

I read this really nice fanfic some time ago by the way, I really loved this one. :) in case you'd like to check it out, there are several chapters of Lorik and other turian goodness: [link]

It's really quite funny and has quite a bit of gentleman-Lorik 'action' in it. :)

You're welcome, I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

YEAH. Like most turians that think they don't have to take any shit, but we gotta do it. :roll:
It just makes Lorik an extra fine turian; next to Garrus... and Nihlus of course. :(

Lorik is a heaping plate of awesome drizzled lightly with awesome sauce with a side of minced awesome.

You did a very good job, both on his turian-ness (those buggers are hard to draw) and marker usage. YAY PRISMACOLORS!

In fact you made a point in there... Hes really very relaxed when everything goes shooting and crashing around, only getting a little upset if you talk to him in the wrong way in the end of his part in the story...
Gotta love those turians :P

Ah, Lorik Qui'in. One of my favorite Turians. When I first met him, he wasn't just another Turian I had to talk to, like Li. It was his voice-- it was smooth, calm, collected. In a strange way, it was enchanting. I also liked the color of his markings. A mintish blue/green. Very pretty. Anyway, Your work is very well done. He looks amazing! You draw Turians very well. The texture adds to the quality of the picture, too. :+fav: Very beautiful!

After meeting Lorik all other Turians instantly became boring. Actually I'm kinda surprised there aren't more characters like him in the ME universe, Bioware I hope you're taking notes.

Congrats on winning btw, I voted for it! XD
