I'm not that kind of Croft... by AngelTrent I'm not that kind of Croft... by AngelTrent
My first and only submission to the Tomb Raider contest, haha. Took me about two weeks with break and I am quite satisfied with it. Sure, there are flaws but I am not a very good artist and this is probably the best I can do, without banging my poor head on the wall.

This drawing plays on a phrase Lara says to Roth and portrays a collision of two worlds: an unsure and young Lara dropping her magatama, while her older self is there to pick it up.
I wanted to do something else rather then just drawing Lara. Make it a little bit more symbolic. A little challenge for myself even (because usually I am as creative as a boulder). I did not use so much references for anything in my entire life and backgrounds are my worst enemy, so that's as good as they would ever get :D

I hope you like it ^^

Time taken: Way too long
Tools: Photoshop CS3, Wacom Volito 2

This deserves to win the contest, hands DOWN. So many deviants depict Lara in Tomb Raider to be all action, which isn't bad in itself, but they all try to draw the same thing in hopes that theirs has more visual. This visual is worth a thousand words; what the main theme of the game is; the old, immortal Lara has past, the new, vulnerable Lara has come.

Thank you very much for the kind words! I am glad you liked it.

I really wanted to create 'a bridge' to show what Lara was (original), what she is and what she will become. Nothing brings me more joy to see character grow and evolve: old Lara was great in her own way and I like her for that but we all have to start somewhere, we're not born superheroes. Just humans. And eventually she'll grow to be badass again, just with more depth and angles, so to say. :)
