A survivor is born by SeanNash A survivor is born by SeanNash
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



First version 2011 - [link]

Yeah but its a WIP. I haven't done much digital art before so I'm just using the contest as a motivator to complete a piece. :)

Welcome much. From a fellow Tomb Raider fan, you're doing a beautiful job. However, have you noticed in the most recent 5 games her look has changed drastically? Which one do you like most? Because I'm just partial to the look in Anniversary, for some reason.

I'm kinda liking where there taking the new Lara, I mean Im a sucker for Lara, and I loved every single game and I loved Anniversary :) But I feel like the new Lara I could kinda see her being more real, if that makes sense :giggle: lol. She just seems more believable now as a character :)

Yes, I completely understand. In the first few games she was just superhuman, but now her movement is more restricted (not like in AoD, which I hated, by the way), but it's not like she can just keep running and jumping forever. They've also really revamped her look so she's in perspective to herself and her eyes aren't huge anymore. Before she was almost Barbie-doll esque. Now she's more girly, but also more fierce. She was very stoic in the first few games. Now that they've given her an emotional side and upped the graphics on her character, she seems, like you said, more believable. I can't wait for the new one!

Really really great, it made such an impact on me when I saw the thumbnail and had to see it. I just love all the cuts and bruises and scars and bloodstains. They look so wonderful. It certainly does look like it was tricky, but you totally nailed it ;D
The work on the hand is great, drawn to perfection, same with her entire body and the facial features, although I can't help but feel her face is stretched vertically (this mainly occurred to me by looking at the mouth), her chin is not quite that defined in the game, but it isn't that much of an issue that it ruins the picture. It's still absolutely breathtaking and definitely a favourite out of most of the Lara Croft drawings i've seen overtime ;D

Well done! The atmosphere and coloring is once again amazing as usual. :D

Though, I'm not too fond of her jaw-line here, it seems to ''triangle-ish''. But other than that, it's superb!

Breathtakingly gorgeous...not only is your painterly style really beautiful, but you've managed to capture so much emotion and vulnerability in the facial expression and especially the eyes that truly brings this piece of art to life.
