Graceyn's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Literature
United States
Writer, gamer, techie, modder, software developer, editor. While I am a huge gamer in general - particularly RPGs, action-adventure and MMOs - the Mass Effect series is my beloved.

Most of my art deviations are screenshots from Mass Effect (though other games appear from time to time), all modified to a greater or lesser extent - some are merely tweaked a little to be "better," others are heavily altered to create a mood or effect. Not quite art, still, but nonetheless my way of expressing appreciation for these wonderful games. I use in-game graphics enhancement tools like SweetFX and TexMod, as well as other tools like flycam and Fraps, then Photoshop for the post-processing.

Recently I have also begun creating original spacescapes; I'm still learning, and hopefully improving.

I have a Mass Effect fanfic, "If It Meant Living" - it is complete and covers the entire game trilogy - as well as a sequel, "Beyond," which is also complete. Links to free eBook versions are below.

"Starshine," the first novel in an original science fiction trilogy "Aurora Rising," has been published and is available on Amazon ( and other retailers (see them here: The first two chapters can be read for free here:
