Wondercon 2012 – Samara // Mass Effect 2

This is Rana McAnear, I met her briefly at Wondercon and after asking her if I could take her photo, she told me that she was the actual face model for Samara in Bioware's Mass Effect 2.

    I don't see how you do this. Anyone else would come out with snapshots. You somehow do on-the-fly portraiture. 116,000 views? Wow!

    I know an Onigun when I see one before I even read the name. Excellent crisp focus and great colours. Very cool. These conventions look like mad fun.
