Borderlands 2 - Maya (take 2) by lvlapple Borderlands 2 - Maya (take 2) by lvlapple
Didn't play any characters to the level cap until last week :lol:

Art notes

Was not really happy with my first try with Maya from Borderlands 2, so I had a retry. BTW, the pistol is Greed, stolen from Captain Scarlett :lol:

Grayscale to color is a pain in the butt. 99% Photoshop this time :lol:

Music: [link] I want out - Helloween. Hyperion's ECHO logs about her reminds me the song :lol:

And this is my Take One [link]

Now there was a time,
When you loved me so.
I couldn't do wrong,
And now you need to know.

See, I been a bad bad bad bad man.
And I made a deal.
Yeah.
I found a brand new love for this man,
And I can't wait till you see.
I can't wait.

So how you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?

How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me nooooooooooooow?

Remember the time
When I eat you up
Yeah I was a line
That you can't give up.

If I was to cheat on you
Would you see right through me?
If I sing a sad sad sad sad song
Would you give it to me?

So how you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?

How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me nooooooooooooow?

Does that make you love me baby?
Does that make you want me baby?
Does that make you love me baby?
Does that make you want me baby?

Oh, mercy.
Hello.
Oh yeah.

I can't see where you comin' from
But I know just what you runnin' from:
And what matters ain't the "who's baddest" but
The ones who stop you fallin' from your ladder

And you feel like you feelin' now
Doin' things just to please your crowd,
But I love you like the way I love you,
And I suffer, but I ain't gonna cut you cus

This ain't no place for no hero.
This ain't no place for no better man.
This ain't no place for no hero
To call "home."

This ain't no place for no hero.
This ain't no place for no better man.
This ain't no place for no hero
To call "home."

Every time I close my eyes, I think,
I think 'bout you inside,
And your mama, givin' up on askin' why -
Why you lie, and you cheat, and you try to make
A fool outta she...

I can't see where you comin' from,
But I know just what you're runnin' from.
And what matters ain't the "who's baddest," but the
Ones who stop you fallin' from your ladder, cos

This ain't no place for no hero.
This ain't no place for no better man.
This ain't no place for no hero
To call "home."

Maya's kickass.  Nice work, I definitely feel like she's a second from shooting me in the phase, phaselocking me, or both.

I love everything about it! Except that is a Jakobs gun. I always picture sirens with Maliwan :| (Blank Stare) 
Sorry for the rather biased and pretty much irrelevant nitpick...

She seems more lively here, compared to her in-game graphics. She seems to have more emotions in this portrait.

Greed is probably my favorite pistol in the whole game. It's so delightful~

I played mostly Gaige and Maya. DT is mega awesomepants for keeping yourself from getting overwhelmed, and Maya's phaselock is a godsend vs flying enemies.

I mostly played as Maya, or maybe Zero for some challenge :lol:

OrdonCrane Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
Zero actually was quite a challenge. Honestly, I liked Mordecai better, but I'm not much for melees. However, Zero with Law and Order just isn't fair, lol.

I actually have two Greeds. One's a TwoFer, which is great for close/mid range, but it's not accurate enough for long range. The other's a Bowie which is accurate as heck, plus has a knife on it so gaige can melee crysalysks.

Zero: "I'm a vampire!" :iconvampireplz:

I only have one Greed :iconwhistleplz: And besides...I really like using Jakobs :P

:iconordoncrane:
OrdonCrane Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
If it takes more than one shot, you weren't using a Jakobs!

Yeah, I use Jakobs a TON. The buffalo is actually my favorite rifle, though I heard there's a seraph one in the new DLC I may like, so I have to check that out.

my favorite is Skullmasher...because I used it a lot in BL1 :P

Elephant and Buffalo are excellent too. They hit hard and very accurate :lol:

OrdonCrane Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013
Yeah, just have to get used to the sights. It can make far long range a bit of a pain, but if you're shooting from that distance they probably don't even know you're there so you can take your time.
