- Miranda Lawson - by Anathematixs - Miranda Lawson - by Anathematixs
Here was the next challenge: Backgrounds!

Since I've pretty much always gone with very simplistic backgrounds, I felt the need to become more adept at painting scenery and backgrounds. So here is my attempt :)
Aaaaaand since I had a ME theme going on, I decided on doing another character, since it was requested...
Think I might have to do some male ones to counterbalance things, though...

And can I just say her outfit is a pain in the a** to paint!! All those hexagons and details and .... ARGH!!!
Not likely doing that again...
Also, I really struggled with the likeness... For some reason it just did not want to click..

References used for Miranda / Yvonne Stahovski, the omni tool and I looked at a lot of screenshots from the game for the background. I guess it's mainly based on Tuchanka.

Considering you say her outfit is a pain to paint, I think you did exceptionally well! Also, really nice to see Miranda in an action pose looking moderately lethal. Is there any chance you'd be willing to let me share this on a Facebook page I admin called Mass Effect Miranda Lawson - [link] ? It's a page for a Miranda who is as much science geek as she should be - in other words: Miranda is more than butt cheeks and bosoms.

Thank you so much! I really did try and make her look at least half as badass as Shepard. I mean... Shep is Shep, but still! Don't want her to look like she's the whiny one in the back, covering her head and randomly warping things that pop around the corner. :P
There's one promo pic for ME2 where you see her in a bit more of an action pose, which I kinda referenced for this "feel". The pose came from a screenshot. (minus her left arm, which was all original)
And by all means, as long as you leave a little link back to me, feel free to post it on Facebook :D

I like it, but Miranda with an omni-blade seems kinda not right. She'd be using her biotics instead. I know they're overdone, but they do fit her better.

:iconanathematixs:
Anathematixs Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Duuuuude!! You are SO right..
*slaps self on forehead*
I'm sorry... I've never really payed that much attention to Miranda and I completely forgot she's like a super-engineered biotic. I just went straight for the omni-blade without thinking.
And in hindsight: my FemShep painting had the blade in it, too. Giving Miranda a biotic ability charging would have been more original. Darn!

I'll go sit in a corner now...

Lovely! You're brave doing Miranda's outfit 0_0 But I think you did a really good job getting it right, I especially love the way you have the highlights on the fabric (if thats even what you can call that outfit?) I also really like the background. Like you, I always struggle with backgrounds, but I love that you have the correct focus on it, nothing is overly eye catching that it takes anything away from Miranda. But there is also enough there to compliment the character design and give it depth. :heart:

That outfit drove me MAD!!!!!!! But once I got started I was just NOT giving up xD
I actually painted the background and character separately to begin with before I added them both together. (Might actually post that background at some point...)
Help me out,though: Should I do Kaidan or Thane first?? :P Or Garrus..... Or male Shep... GAH!!!!!!
Reply
:iconashtoreth:
Ashtoreth Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
Yeah post the background!!! I wanna see! Hmmm... tough decision... I think Thane would be more interesting to draw and easier to get the correct likeness. However, at the same time I would love to see your version of Kaidan :heart: And then there is my bro Garrus... Maybe that order? Then Male shep? lol I'm such a decisive person!

:iconanathematixs:
Anathematixs Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Professional Digital Artist

I guess I'll start with Kaidan, then.

This is so dynamic! I can see exactly why her outfit is so hard to paint--I hate those little details, but you certainly pulled it off!

I really love the pose; it turns this whole scene into something more action-packed than a 'regular' portrait. I do think her left leg is a bit too big for that pose. I could be wrong, but maybe we'd see less of it because she's turning? Anywho, you really nailed the genre here, and the character and background go great together!!

Thanks for sharing :)

I tried to make it look like she was mid-turn. So with her legs still "facing forward", but I do see your point. I think I should have added a bit more shadow on the inside of the leg, or shaved off a bit of the outside..
I smell a revision!! xD

:iconastarayel:
astarayel Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013
She definitely does look mid-turn!! I think you can probably wait on the revision, it's already a lovely piece and you're probably tired of working on it right now ;)
