Tomb Raider Reloaded

by TheHylden in Game Fan Art

This is my concept that popped into my head when the Valentine's Day competition came about on the Eidos forums. I was thinking about doing something for it, then I had other things I had to do. However, on February 20th, two days before the competition ended, I had this notion. I knew I wouldn't be able to finish it by then -- not even close -- but it was a fun concept and I liked how I had it pictured in my head, so I decided I'd go ahead and do it anyway.

This is painted entirely in Photoshop, with minor tweaking in After Effects at the end. I looked at pics for the new Lara from the screenshots and concept art, but only as reference. I mostly wanted to paint her using my own head. Things like the detail on the holster and such, and on her, though, I wanted to be as correct as possible. It winds up being a hybrid between the game screens, the FMV, and the concept art.

It did take longer to initially get the pose right. I have a slightly harder time drawing women than men... Overall, I'm very happy with the way it turned out. First time drawing/painting Lara in any form, much less this new version of her so this was fun

Incidentally, I think this works better as a fanart than a specific Valentine's piece (although, you can feel the love, can't you? lol), so it's for the best that I missed the competition deadline Hope you enjoy.
