If any of the Eve development team go through to look at the other entries that mesh with the Eve style and happen upon this one, I would greatly like some back and forth on this design, or just Eve design in general.
My entry for the EVE online ship contest. Thank you for any and all consideration by the judges and of course everyone else. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed building it. Beyond that all favs, watches, and comments are appreciated.
Feel free to download the image to get a closer look.
. . . you know when it happens it is going to be awesome
The idea behind this piece was to basically tease the definitive moment when Lara becomes who we all know her to be. She is in a bad situation, had a good fight but is terribly outnumbered. Falls on the ground to sneakily get her trade mark second pistol, which I am sure will be an important moment in the game.
Visually I used a lot of inspiration from screenshots released from the game - I tried to depict that cinematic feeling.
I want to show Lara and her inferiority, but also her struggling for survival, which in the end it will turns her into the great adventurer. Will she uses the knife or the gun? Silent or direct confrontation? Or even that torch gonna blew her hiding?
This is my entry for Tomb Raider Reborn Contest but what most important is I enjoyed making this drawing and trying to advance my skill. Any minor edit and revision is possible until the deadline. I love Lara since her debut . Can't wait to play the game. Good luck for all the contestants. Cheers!
EDIT: I wanted to say a little more about what this image could be. We all see this as a horrifying image but as noted by one great DA member I have drawn the spirit about the same size as the girl so could also be a child. This could be a mother holding an image she has looked at many a time as the wear shows, maybe to remember a lost child that could just still be trying to play hide and seek. That is what is so great about art we can each add our own narrative. To all of you who enjoy my work I am re-entering my artworks into the competition and would be greatly appreciative to all of you to look at my work again as all of your favourites and comments have been deleted when my work was removed. I like to get back to each and every one of you who honour me for taking the time to favourite and comment on my work and look through your galleries to reply in kind, thank you. To those who are interested I wanted to experiment with this competition by taking a base photograph and drawing directly over the top, adding the lighting the phantom and the smoke as well as to heavily edit the base photo. I have edited all photos to make the subject unrecognisable. All of the references used as a base belong to me and were taken for this contest. EDIT: The response to this has been amazing and I am truly thankful to all of you. I will be slowing working through my messages to say thank you to so many of you.
