TOMB RAIDER by mikemaluk TOMB RAIDER by mikemaluk
My entry for Tomb Raider Reborn Contest.
Pencil, Guash, Photoshop. Lots of hours...


Wanted a more traditional art feeling on it, in contrast with the official art of the game. Even though I added some touches on photoshop.
Tried to give it my view on Tomb Raider, not just this game. Im a big fan since the first game! Love Lara, we had many great adventures together :D

Comments really apreciated.

Given all your drawings of women and to hear your a fan of laura croft I'm surprised you haven't drawn the 'nude patch' version that was all the talk back in the days of 1996 (where popup spam was yet to appear on the internet!)

Did play a few of the TR games including TR2, because it had my favourite cheat: sidestep Left, then Right, then Left, then hold WALK and step Forward, then step Backwards. Next, turn Lara around three times in any direction, then jump forward and while in the air press the ROLL button.

And no its not the nude code!

It's a very good drawing, the expressions on her are the most striking, though armed you shown her vunulurability well. I admit the game is a big change from what I usually played in the past and think it forced her into more distress situations then it should really, at the same time as the picture shows she is in an exporling enviroment unkown to her. The high cliffs show in a subtle sense the daunting challenge she faces against nature alone.

On the game the only downside has been the absurdly unrealistic selling expectations for this game, which haven't been met, to be fair as much as TR is a known series the idea that it can make 7 million in sales is crazy. The last Mortal kombat game that was hyped like anything sold over 3 million. TR is good but its not that big as it use to be.

Thanks man, I presume you like contrast :D Thanks man, I thought that was of the main innovations in this new game, she looks more human and fragile, but strong and adventurous at the same time :D Thanks again for your comment!
