YOU CAN CALL ME MAYA - Odyssey II by DANNY-DED YOU CAN CALL ME MAYA - Odyssey II by DANNY-DED
- Odyssey II
Here is how I see Maya... A modern Antiope, an urban amazone.
I propose this interpretation of the mysterious redhead woman which appears to Paul in the chapter "the Host with the most".

Acrylic painting & photomanipulation.

An absolutely amazing picture!
I actually came across this picture a long time ago and back then I saved it to my computer because well it's awesome and it sorta kinda looks like me ..a little bit (well, she's prettier of course ;) and my name is also Maya..  I thought maybe I could one day put it as my profile picture.. So today I was looking at it again, at how great the picture is, so I had to find you on Deviant Art again to tell you it's an amazing piece of work! And to ask you if you would let me use it as my profile picture on 8tracks or last.fm =) If not, it's ok.. I just really like it! Thank you for sharing your wonderful art!

Hello Maya, in fact you look like her! ;) Thank u for those kind words.
Normally it's not free of exploitation, but u can use it if u mention my name (artwork by Danny Ded) and the link to my dA or Facebook, it's okay for you? ;)

Yeah I totally agree, thank you for this enlightened comment. My version of Maya is, in few words, "borderline woman with guns and knives" ;)

I like this picture. I haven't read Clive Barker's works in a long time but I hope to again. I shall check out more of your work as well.

I'm not even following the whole thing, but this is one knockout illustration! The block printing adds edge to an already awesome illustration of MAYA, and the blazing red hair makes it jump out of the picture. YOW!!!

Thank you, Ed. I think you understood what I was suggesting with this deviation: Something that immediately jumps to the eyes, Maya is for me a perfect action woman, her flaming hair reflects her temperament. Glad you like it, sincerely! ;)

Thank you, yes I'm a very "art brut", I like impactful things :empllama:, and if I'm a little shy in life, as an artist I like to make beating visuals (I paint almost entirely with knives). ;)

Well, I donīt consider it as a contest so far, but a great thing to participate and get the kick. Thatīs in my eyes the worth of the project. I did my draw such quick and with drive and am quite happy with it.

But yourīs is definitely among the 2-3 favorites.

Yes for sure, this plan, it's like entering in a carousel of feelings. Reading, thinking, work accordingly... I used to see talented visuals on dA, but in this case I'm also surprised by quality of texts & chapters : a real boost to graphic creativity, undeniably. Whatever happens I'll propose an artwork for each chapter to come. But I lie if I pretend I don't want to be chosen for once ahah! Thank you again, motivation is half of the work ;)
