Tomb Raider fan art - Inspired by the new game.
A digital piece inspired by the new game, I wanted to just keep it simple and work on color and Lara's face, I wanted to put a bow in... but I just feel like Lara holding a gun looks somewhat more like Lara Croft. Keeping an old feel to Lara and then working with the dirt and cuts, blood and lighting was the tricky part. But I'm loving learning new things about digital art and really loved working on this piece...even thought I've been up all night trying to get it to look right hehe.
I titled it a survivor is born just like we've seen in the advertisement for the new Tomb Raider, it just felt right because I wanted to add a bit of emotion in the piece, making Lara look unsure about her surroundings, holding a gun close to her chest showing a change in her was the idea for the image. Hope you guys like it
I used Corel Paint and Corel Paint Shop X5
