Maia - GTA Style by fox-orian Maia - GTA Style by fox-orian
Here's how Maia would appear if drawn in the Grand Theft Auto concept drawing style! The style as seen in the GTA: San Andreas artworks :)
This was a real quickie Vector work all drawn in Adobe Illustrator CS [except for the skin-tone glowing, that's photoshop.] It's not that detailed, by I think it captures the GTA style pretty well :) Hope you like!

I used a photo base for the linework of my girlfriend dressed up as Maia :)
The reference image I used for the coloring and line style is an official work: [link]

Edit:
Fixed the line width issue -- the outline is thick like the GTA style now :)

Hey, that looks amazing. I love GTA painting style. In fact, I my self, wanna make a GTA style painting, but I dont know how since that would be my first time.

Is there any way, you could give me a small tut, on how to set up tools, few pointers, if its not too much to ask?

Thanks anyway!

:D

Considering it's from 2004 I'd have to agree that it's not so good. [I believe you meant to say good and not god.] But your comment maintains a fine example of a completely useless comment. Saying its not so good helps absolutely no one except your own ego, so watch out for that. After looking through the majority of your gallery, which doesn't even seem to be your own images, I'd have to say you're not so good either.

Note: image is in scraps for a reason.

Ahhh, good ol' GTA... I'm more of a Vice City person than a San Andreas person though. I wasn't thrilled enough by the storyline of San Andreas to actually play, having seen some of the "highlights" while my friend Dan was playing it... But this DID turn out quite nice.
Now, let's see you draw her in MGS style concept art...
just kidding.

Anywhoo, sorry it took so long to comment, I'm lazy...

Times like this I wish I played more video games, 'cause I miss out on all that slick video game art. ^^; I was never much for the GTA games - except for the first. That bird's eye camera, the massive amounts of bright red cartoony blood. THAT was a game, I tells ya'. A beautiful, beautiful game. Anyhoo, but back on point: yeah, so I miss alot of games, and alot of game art. That style makes me wish I woulda' at least paid attention to GTA's latest, though. That's a DAMN sexy lighting style. That it is. :3

I love the GTA artworks. But they have bolder lines. I love it so much, especially the blue hair. ;) Go GTA. <3

Great work with the style. Really nice, fluid composition. Great shading, as well. And the black lines. Really pulled this off nicely.

Ah, how I appreciate that illustrative style. And you did it fine justice.
All and all, solid work.
And it's funny how the difference between Maria and Maia is the "r". I just recently looked at that.

Yeah I found that out like 7 months after I met Maria, hahaha. I was like "Well... look at that. Coincidence?"

And before I met maria, my previous girlfriends name was Jen, where at the time my main focus character was, coincidently, Jenna from my now-dead story "Shadow Fallen."

*Nods* Good work, like the idea, not many people have tried the artstyle yet.

I like what you did here, very much what I would have expected to see in that game. Well done, as always. :)

Love the boxing effect to bring dramaticness to the image. *Nods in apprication*

Heeh, mm, you're a recent watcher, so you probably haven't seen much of my character Maia. She's a focus character of practically most of my artworks :) It's a coincidence that my girlfriend somewhat resembles her in real life.

That certainly looks san andreas style.
The only difference that i instantanly detected is that the designs from the Rockstar studios fellas have stronger outlines.
Appart from that, she could be crossing with cj.
