Tali's Face Revealed by MickyVainilla Tali's Face Revealed by MickyVainilla

hope so!

We've never seen her canon face have we?

Pretty much the baseline concept I would guess!
But the skin-tone and the white glowing eyes does match well with my first-impression on what a quarian might look like unmasked
However.. there are certain mods that introduces Tali's face with way better rendering!

This is probably just a placeholder face to get certain features aligned right. I doubt it's the "official" design of the quarians, Bioware isn't that silly.
Still interesting though.

i think this is just a base and in mass effect 3 they will throw a texture over the top :D

First off, animals and monsters? Come on, man! xD

And just sayin', if you use a flashlight while lookin' at the model in Gmod, you can see her face perfectly.

with this we can clarify that she has glowing white eyes (with a nice shape to them), and a slim face.
However the skin tone in my oppinion isnt purple, I think she would be very pale of a light colour (seeing how there in there suits there hole life they cant get sunrays.

thats probably just the roughest sketch of her face so that reflections on the mask look right in the bik files, exactly like ryu said

Nice job. However, it's nothing more than a face pattern. We can only hope that Bioware will reveal her true face in Mass Effect 3.

You idiots, that's not actually her face. Bioware designed the face behind the mask to maintain the shape of her face, to keep it looking like a silhouette. If yu think that's her actual face, do some research. ._. -facepalm-

You, idiot, do you actually think that we believe her face is pixelated? as a silhoutette, it must have the same shape as the face.

You do know that Tali's face in-game is just a standard face model used by graphic software? ;)

I don't think this is exactly what she looks like, they obviously just didn't develop her face. I mean, in ME 1, f you go take a look at random human women, they look like fish

I am glad she has a Human Face, I have a strong feeling she really is Bald, since Hair would seem like a Hygienic Issue, she MIGHT have hair, and since you really are not supposed to see more than the front part of her face's shape, the dev's didn't even bother adding Hair. I Hope Quarians are nothing more than Purple, 2 finger, and 2 toes Humans. :P

Well, actually, if you look at male Quarians, the back of their heads have long, thin tubes which very much resemble hair. I'd imagine that they'd have some strands of hair that run through said tubes, or something similar, otherwise the tubes would be silly.

Jongamer Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2010
I still think the Tubes are nothing more than part of the Life Support system in their Suits, and the Female Quarians just have the cloth covering those tubes on the back of their heads.

Maybe, but who's to say the cloth is not covering hair?

I bet that they made her purple to help make her mask purple. Remember some Quarians had brown masks? I bet their hidden faces are brown. I think the actual color of her skin is something the devs didn't include, and her skin being purple has the same amount of chance as her skin being brown or any color. We'll have to wait for Bioware to reveal it.

Either that or it's like humans, with skin in many different colors. But I don't know about any sci-fi's in the vast amount of them all that has any aliens which come in more than just one color. And that green Asari doesn't count. She was the Thorian's fault.

Oh yeah, I know it was probably just for the mask. I was being a dork.

Actually, both turians and salarians come in a wide array of colors, and I've seen asari leaning more towards purple than blue. Krogans have different-colored crests and skin as well.

As for quarians, I'm betting on them being an earthy tone, like gray or something. But like you said, we'll have to wait.

Oh, right. I remember Sidonus was kinda darker, but I figured it was paint or something because it was in perfect lines. I also figured older Asari got purple skin or maybe it was just a tan. Different-colored Salarians? You got me there. I totally forgot they come in different colors. And I thought I remembered all Krograns being brownish?

Some krogans had reddish crests, some green, and some brown. Grunt is more orange-skinned than other krogans, and his crest is gray.

Turian skin color varies a lot. Look at the first game: Saren was white, while Nihlus was so dark he was almost black. Also, that dude on Purgatory was a dark green, the politician on Thane's loyalty mission was gray, and there were plenty of reddish guys running around.

Nice! I'm guessing they'll look different than that with the masks off, since basically the mask + the face geometry and texture together make up what they look like. The purple color, for example, could come from the mask. The geometry may also be modified so it looks correct through the mask. At the same time though, this gives us the best idea thus far of what they look like. :D

Well that's great! It's even more human than I imaagined, especially the eye shape.

Could you get one at a different angle, so we could see her mouth?

Its quite hard, becouse camera moves too fast, this is the best i could do. But I can tell you her mouth is very human, only her ears are missing.
I also took a screenshot of a Quarian Skeleton, the only diference was their fingers.
I will upload it soon...
