We all voted during the previous weeks, first for character model then for hair color. Then, just today at PAX Prime in Seattle, BioWare officially announced that the redhead Commander Shepherd was the official winner, and will appear in the game as the default female. She will also grace the box art of the collector’s edition version of Mass Effect 3 when it comes out in March.
Patryk Olejniczak, a new artist on the BioWare team, put together a couple shots of her, one in large wallpaper format (although it isn’t quite 1920×1080, so I say boo to that). One is above, the other is stashed after the break. Check ’em out and let us know what you think.
