EDIT: Sooo, people. I did this when the very first pic of James was shown and we didn't have any info on him or anything. We didn't even know how his final skintone would be like, so that's why he doesn't look like him AT ALL. I DID NOT white washed him, okay? That was all the info I had atm. I wanted to delete this, but I keep supporting James and he has become one of my favorite ME characters, so I'll leave this here, but with an explanation xD Thanks
Little James Vega (new ME3 squadmate) sketch (and Sgt.Whiskers, too, because I love to stalk the BSN and I fully approve of Vega saving kittehs
I really don't know what's going on with all the Vega hate. Hating him because you don't like how he looks seems pretty childish and irrational, especially when you know how Bioware handles their characters - every one of them is a single work of art.
So while I don't LOVE him because honestly, that would be really childish too (given that we know nothing about him), I support new characters, and I support him, and I trust the Bioware writers.
So go and give him a warm welcome, people! He's the newbie and he's sure going to feel a bit awkward among the bunch of old friends that Shepard and his/her squaddies are. Go Shepards from around the world and have a drink with him!
