Mystic Maya by obsessedkitten Mystic Maya by obsessedkitten
** Edit: Updated with a tweaked file :) I hope it looks a bit better now!

Phoenix Wright is my all time favourite game series. After replaying the games again, I just couldn't resist making a portrait of my favourite character, Maya Fey.

This is my second attemt at a Maya portrait. I'm thinking of painting a few of the other characters and make a series of it.

Thank you for looking ;)

The process of this painting can be found on my livestream channel and on my tumblr blog :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-01-25
Mystic Maya by =obsessedkitten
The suggester says: "I felt that this deviation of Phoenix Wright's Maya was a perfect example of how an artist can use their own style and skill to push a well known character a bit further and create something special while still retaining all the good aspects of the original character" ( Suggested by TheLandoBros and Featured by alexandrasalas )
This is a wonderful illustration of Maya Fey!

First of all, I really like how you did the expression on her face, including her blank eyes as well as the movement in her hair as well as the clothing that she's wearing.

I also like how you did the glowy effects on the necklace that she's wearing as well. As for the colouring, you worked so hard on how you did the lighting effects surrounding her skin as well as the clothing that she's wearing.

I'm really proud with the way how you put a lot of effort on this illustration as well as earning a Daily Deviation for it! :love:

This is really lovely and amazing. The character is very eye catching and mysterious. I really love the green glow of her necklace and how it flows upward. With that and the character leaning back it seems that she's stepping back, or going to turn her back to us, or prepared to run.

I love the background which, in my perspective looks like fog. The reason for this is because the way you have strands of her hair a lighter shade of black compared to the rest of her hair, as it blends a bit with the background. It looks like her hair entered the fog.

My most favorite aspect of this drawing would be the eyes. From far away it looks like the character has no pupils what so ever and it's just white eyeballs. When you take a closer look, there are pupils and irises. The color of them are a very light green which looks absolutely stunning. The facial expression and portrayed body movement really ties in with the impact of the eyes as well. They add to the mysterious and even a bit of a vulnerable look. Though, I see a little less vulnerable and a little more seductive and alluring.

The only thing I didn't like just a bit was her Chest area. It just bothered me a bit how the cleavage lining wasn't emphasized a bit more. Maybe in your vision it wasn't suppose to, which is fine. Just in my perspective it could have been emphasized a bit more. I did like the reflection of the glow on her skin.

All in all, very very well done. You have 3 aspects that really give the drawing a strong impact.
