MAYA (Borderlands 2) by Sheridan-J MAYA (Borderlands 2) by Sheridan-J
Commission for a Maya portrait this time!

I usually play as Zer0 myself, but I made a new Maya character and played her for a bit. For research purposes, of course....:paranoid:

Based her look of several screenshots/artwork from the game, but I referenced this photo quite a bit too [link]
I really loved the lighting there! So sexy :love:

Photoshop CS5
20 hours.
Airbrush + Texture brushes.
Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!

So are you editing an existing photo, phasing it over into Maya?

The textures are good enough where I thought this was a cosplay until I read the description

The skin looks really real! And I hope you don't mind a bit of critiquing, but the top part where the hair meets the skin, it looks a but un-natural. But other than that, it looks totally realistic! Heart

Maya was the first character I picked for a Borderlands 2 game. She may not be the funniest or craziest, but I always liked her a lot. :)

Awesome portrait!

very nice indeed!! She came out better then Jack did i feel.(he still is my fave!!) I think it was the fact that Jack wears a mask. no matter how real you try to get him.. he will still look .. well not like maya <3 wonderful work!

Thanks :)

And you're right; Handsome Jack will always have that "Uncanny valley" look about him because of the mask. It's so unnatural, but I think it's pretty surreal too haha. I didn't want to side step that too much :XD:

I love this Maya Portrait. It's the best professional looking piece I've found of Maya on the Internet. I like this picture so much because it's not the cartoonish style, and it's realistic.
By the ways, love the hair and eyes. Everything in this looks so amazing!
