Maia Project SYNTHESIS Final by fox-orian Maia Project SYNTHESIS Final by fox-orian
Maia Project, final design as she will appear in Synthesis.

Most of the story development is done, so I’ve started doing some of the visual. Maia here, is of course the main character. It’s funny seeing her finalized design now, after all the years of drawing her through many different stages of long to short hair, blue hair, orange eyes, and many default outfits that ranged from long pants, skirts, hoodies and even see-through shirts/fishnetting. In a lot of ways her design has quieted down to something more simplified and less blatantly demanding of attention. This is wholly intentional.

I like how normal she looks, if that makes sense.

It's kind of weird to see this design because for some reason (previous designs?) I always imagined her as rather petite. But the colours are awesome, and I definitely like the "less blatantly demanding attention" direction. Bring on Synthesis! :D

She got taller! I've always liked her designs and this one feels very solid. I like the pattern on the shirt, it's a nice subtle bit of futuristic style without screaming cyberpunk.

I really like her character design. Not too flashy (which is what I like in characters.)

She got a tan. This BETTER be the last one. I've been waiting to actually read this for a few false starts now

Hahah don't worry man, the next time it launches it won't be a false start. This project thus far has been a major learning experience with lots of growth, both in my own abilities and confidence to now tackle this thing head-on and also in the very story and characters itself. It was a long time coming to hone Maia to this point hahaha.

Anyway, there's a lot of behind-the-scenes discussion and development going on, man. Lots of real story substance now that I never had before when I did those earlier false starts. I'll be keeping you guys posted on the phases as they come leading into next year.

Really love the blue/tan combo. Her build is also quite nice; looks like she could be a good protagonist. :)
