I rarely paint a background, but this time i want to challenge myself to do it... it take times, but Im satisfied with the result.. the original size is about 6000px wide and a lot of details in it . In the end i had to blur out the burned temple and some of the other detail because i want Lara to be a main focus in this artwork.
I felt emotionally impressed by the new image of Lara, she looks like a real person. She feels weak and at the same time has enough strenght to survive and overcome all severe challenges. That's exactly what i was trying to depict. I Had a great experience and a lot of fun while doing this.
Please leave a comment to support me up, and good luck to everyone. Thank you so much
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
