Miranda by PRG1 Miranda by PRG1
Miranda Lawson, modelled on her voice actress Yvonne Strahovski. Painted on a 1m x 80 cm canvas using acrylic paints. It replaces a different painting I did of a Quarian that I simply wasn't happy with.

That's very kind :)  I wanted this Miranda to look like the depiction that was on one of the Dark Horse comics, along with making her look like the voice actress.

Beautiful work! I love the shine to her suit, it looks so real!

Thank you again :) The blackish suit made giving that effect a bit easier I think. Doing so with her white outfit may have been trickier.

How do you get the lines so perfect on the buildings?

PRG1 Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I used a big ruler to make sure I was getting the perspective straight. I find that the bigger scale you work, it can be hard to judge angles and perspective correctly. Once I knew I had the slant of the buildings mostly straight on, it wasn't a problem to get the lines relatively straight. With paint you'll never really get any line 100 percent straight - at least I can't anyway!!

A very sharp piece of art - love the shine effects you got on the cerberus logo and costume scenes (nice touch). She looks pretty severe here - cold and thinking. :)

Any chance you'd be OK with me maybe posting this some time to one of the albums of a small Facebook Page I admin called Mass Effect Miranda Lawson? I'd include reference to you as artist and a link to your original here on DA in the photo caption..?

Thank you :) Yes the expression is quite frosty! Miranda was quite a tough, cool sort of a character.

Please feel free to put the pic up on your Facebook page :)

Hurrah! I have *finally* uploaded your pic to the page here: [link] and just shared it with a note. Looking at her picture again it reminded me of an old song: "Over My Shoulder" by Mike And The Mechanics. :P Thank you for the permission!

Woah, that looks really amazing. I think the fact that you based it on Yvonne definitely make it unique, and also more life-like. Considering Miranda is already based on her voice actress, it really works, too. I really like the pose and the way you did the shading. The background looks like it was kind of hard, haha, considering the metal-like appearance you had to be able to do--and you can very well. Her expression is perfect as well. I REALLY love this painting, so well done!

Well that's the thing. Miranda in game is very much based on Yvonne too. Really the painting should have looked very like the in game Miranda, and yet it kind of doesn't. I thought using Yvonne as the starting point made more sense as I wanted the painting to have a fairly real look. The background was alot of fun - fiddly at times but as backgrounds go, it's one of the more detailed ones i've done for work like this.

Thank you for your kind words, they're much appreciated. :)

Yeah, that's why I thought it really worked. It looks very life-like, and I like that you've based her mostly off Yvonne. Yeah, fair enough! Ahh yeah, that's pretty awesome. It turned out well!

No worries. :) You're a great artist.
