CG Mai Shiranui by iDNAR CG Mai Shiranui by iDNAR
Cuz everyone needs a Mai Shiranui pic in their gallery, or at least thats what someone said. But I felt like doing something less typical(w/o the normal hair and skimpy outfit). Turns out the problem with that is that it maybe it doesn't look like her alot anymore. Iono, do you guys think I was still kinda able to capture the Mai Shirauni feel? Anyhow, I'm very happy with the way the overall face area turned out.

I originally planned for her to wear a pink sweater and jeans but my friend talked me into doing a kimono. I was going to add patterns to it too but I'm not too good with textures yet and I'm extremely exhausted from looking at this pic so much now.

If you think the background is crappy, its cuz I kinda forced myself into it. I said to myself that I would no longer avoid doing backgrounds in order to practice it and forced myself to include effort in background in every pic from now on.

And boy this took me more time than that SNK Sol picture. The way I color takes way too much time and effort. I think I'm going to get back to more linearted stuff that goes faster. If anyone would like to see the original sketch, I'll upload it to the scraps section(it looks quite different than the finish)

Well heres my new featured deviation. Enjoy :).

Back way back as an teen I kinda focused on Mai's obvious traits, however now I do like those versions were she does not only look appealing but either beautiful and casual or deadly as a fighter.
All in all this is my fav Mai version I have found so far.

Wow....this picture is gorgeous. She's beautiful, there's a certain realness to this rendition, and it really correlates and looks amazing.

Beautiful.

I love the idea of a casual version. It's like finding her on the streets and not even recognizing her. That face really does look like Mai's.

:spyed:To me it looks like her. The fan also gives a clear indication that it is Mia. The BG could be smoother but it works well due to the blur lens effect. over all it gets one of these.

Thanks for making Mai look a little more dignified. Usually she looks like a hooker; an expensive hooker... but a hooker none the less. This design shows a real person and not a perverts fantasy. Good work

Man, simply amazing! And if by capture the Mai feel you mean draw her like everyone expects, please perish the thought!

Can assure you, it's way better like this. It's nice to see someone can still imagine Mai Shiranui as something more than that mere (and screwed up over time) sex symbol of games. That's why just liked that work of yours a lot.

Keep up the good work further!

On a little note: it may sound like a critique, but in fact, it's a suggestion. As for the background, you justified yourself. You could try to just place her in a simple white flat background... but it only applies to THIS work. You shall never, NEVER give up trying things... it's the way to perfection.

And you could also try to give it a bit more of shading. Again, it's a suggestion, but again and again, nice work, pal :).
