-The Spider/dr. Willard (TR3)
-The Bull/Guardian of Semerkhet (TR4)
-The Android (TR5)

A little insight on my painting processHey lovelies!A little insight on my painting process7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been getting this question a bunch of times so I finally got to compiling this all in a single post. Gonna be showing how I usually work on a piece dissecting my old Tomb Raider one. Not my best work, but I had all the steps and files saved for this one so I could explain every stage.
So take a looksie at the link below and if you have any questions drop me a question in the blog!
P.S. A lil disclaimer: this process does not apply to my sketches and stuff. Those suckers just happen. Slap some paint, scribble around for few hours. Done. Next.

?Hi pals?10 months ago in Personal More Like This
thank you for your support.
I really hit some concrete and I've realized that there is no way how to help myself on my own.
If I do not want to lose that incredibly amazing number of 2-3 friends I have, I need to seek for expert help. One quite awful moment gave me some final kick.
I hope I can handle it.
DA does not make me happy anymore, so my activity is limited
New DA system is fantastic - now I see that there are only few photos of wild animals posted in last 8 hours. There used to be like 400 images posted in last 8 hours and I enjoyed browsing through them. All gone. I see that even the most amazing artists I admire get usually some 300 faves on their work. It is a kind of desilusion
The good thing is that was always a bit sad I can not afford better lens or camera, using just basic and quite cheap gear. Now it does not make sence to buy new stuff, so I can use money I've managed to save for some little trip.
Also: I am very sorry, but no free calendar for 2015
A TRIBUTE TO REALISMA TRIBUTE TO REALISM2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Why don't you just take a photo and a bunch of other stupid yet justified questions-
After years of being bothered by the same question , I have finally decided to write down my feelings and thoughts about this issue. And I think the timing is perfect considering I've somehow reached a stage of finding satisfaction in my own work; which will hopefully result in this journal being informative, interesting, maybe even educational, but above all stop people from being prejudice. If I had written it earlier it probably would have resulted in ranting and raging, at least to some degree.
I hope you will enjoy this read, but unless you think you can relate or learn more about some things, stop reading because this is going to be LONG
Let me start by asking you - what about your own work makes you feel like an artist? What makes any of us 'artists'? Many people imagine artists to be somewhat like mad scientists, but the

stevo505: Will we ever see some behind the scenes content, such as motion-capture and voice-recording sessions?
Karl: Yes, we intend to show lots of behind the scenes content, but are working to ensure that it isn’t delivered in the same old vein as developer diaries. We’re going to do something very special in not-so-distant future, although I don’t want to give it away right now.
aragorn2: The game will have any stealth system or it will be more action style?
Karl: We’re working very hard to ensure our combat system has a variety of different play
UNEARTHED - AtlantisHello Groupies! It's that time where we show you true and interesting information based upon the places, artifacts, culture and mythology of Lara's travels. This time, we're bringing you the speculations and history of the island of Atlas, or better known as Atlantis. There are many ideas and theories of the location of the lost empire. Today, we will primarily focus on the most common and most plausible location and version which is believed to of been in the Atlantic Ocean between what is South America and Africa today, just south of of Iceland.UNEARTHED - Atlantis10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The origins of the speculation of the Atlantean civilization was truly started from Greek philosopher and mathematician, Plato's dialogue Timaeus and Critias, written in 360 B.C. where he wrote:
"For it is related in our records how once upon a time your State stayed the course of a mighty host, which, starting from a distant point in the Atlantic ocean, was insolently advancing to attack the whole of Europe, an

New TR games ANNOUNCED + TRAILERS and CONCEPT ARTExciting news, raiders!New TR games ANNOUNCED + TRAILERS and CONCEPT ART1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Earlier today we posted a blog about two possible Tomb Raider games and they both were just officially confirmed!
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider . The game will redefine survival action in Holiday 2015.
In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.
“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could
What has happened to deviantART?I thought I'd take a few this morning and write this journal because well, quite frankly I can.What has happened to deviantART?2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Granted, I'm not around here much these days and I'm busy working, doing what I love, photography. That being said however, I couldn't stay quiet any longer.
What in the world has happened to this site? Usually I blow things like this over and mind my own business but when it hits my wallet, well that's a different entirely and something needs to be said.
The site here seems to be dying, literally. I've noticed not only a huge drop in my viewership but also in other high profile photographers work as well. In fact, it's safe to say that in that regards, things have absolutely tanked and crashed and burned. Something is wrong with this picture.
My print sales have absolutely tanked. Other people I'm friends with are saying the exact same thing as well. It seems that our shop here on DA is now an empty Main Street and we're not entirely sure why but would like to know w

The second secret unlocked!Dear raiders, a month ago as a present to Lara’s BD, we created the Treasure Vault project and revealed the first secret we had prepared for you. The time to unlock the second one has finally come and we are happy to present you an exclusive collection of videos and commercials Lara appeared in. We’ve collected everything we managed to find and it turned out to be quite an impressive pile of videos so we divided it into three thematic sections which we will reveal one by one. So enjoy part one – Commercials. Two others are soon to follow!The second secret unlocked!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Keep in mind that some videos aren't of high quality given that they're really old and hard to obtain nowadays.
Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and realityReboot of Tomb Raider franchise was probably the most heatedly discussed topic over the last 4 years. We didn’t know if it would become a success or yet another fail, but there was one thing that was clear as a day – fandom split in two. One group supported and firmly believed in the reboot. The other group hated and resented the idea of it claiming that Lara Croft is dead for them now.Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and reality2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now the game is out. It IS a success. Franchise that was on a razor edge before was saved. But there is one question that remained unanswered – did people who resented reboot change their mind or they just receded in the dark mourning over the character that is dead for them now.
Tomb Raider Empire offers you, dear loyal raiders, a little quiz that will help to make things clear. It will be really interesting for us to hear your answers on the given questions and we are sure it will be inter
