I decided to give Liara some love after having such sucess with the picture of Garrus I did. I'm thinking of doing a few more of the characters from the Mass Effect series like this. It still needs some work, I'm not too happy with the shadowing around the eyes or the specks on her face but I will probably pick it up again in the future and fix it.
This took me about 21hrs and was sketched and painted in Photoshop CS4. My main tools were the paint brush, the dodge/burn tool and the smudge tool. Edit:
Lessened the darkness surrounding her eyes as *Akernis
suggested. Also added sheen to eyeballs and more speckles under brows.
