Okay so this has taken a very long time, on and off for a couple of weeks as I've been working on an Animation project doing 3D work, but as I played Tomb Raider Underworld waiting for the new game I decided to start creating a more realistic version of Amanda, As I loved her character in the game, I wished they had really kept her tattoo's as a game art student I get frustrated with small details!! Even if they had made it as if her arms were scared from the tattoo's she had in Legend.
Anyway I'm ranting a bit lol, I kept close to colors that felt right for Amanda, With purples and blues, and pink. I know some of you might wonder about her necklace or outfit, I created this as a version of Amanda after all the games, The necklace is my own design, with a small pendant crystal glowing, kinda felt right for her, instead of a cross. Keeping it more mysterious. Her hair is a mixture between both legend and underworld, as I loved how in Legend a piece of her hair almost covers one eye, and then in underworld her hair was more straight, I decided to mix it up a bit by making her hair more longer and detailed.
I painted this in Corel Painter, Edited In corel photoshop Pro X5
