Well for the first sight you can tell "It's not very original", battle between angel and demon, it's almost like 1283784657885947 time you see it. But for me it was the greatest challenge. Drawing armour and creating demon took a lot of effort, time and discipline. Especially when almost all the job was made by mouse, not tablet. If I would be original I'd create something like old nasty-looking black tree with beautiful flower, but I wanted to do something which would stuck me into thing I must work on I must develop and make slowly step by step. I took challenge instead of original idea.

Another thing is, I really like hybrid image of demon, at the beginning I had no idea how to create interesting look for demon. He had to be opposite of ideal creature which is angel- embodiment of all we think is connected with God- the ideal being. So we have conflict of Angel/Demon, Ideal/Chaotic being, Light/Darkness, they're fighting. And as the circle symbol I put here means that this fight don't have beginning nor end, it's just never-ending epic battle which we all know but not always keep in our minds.

Hello,
Here is my third work for the contest on LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER REBORN organized by Deviant Art.
Software used: Painter 11 + Photoshop + Tablet Intuos 4L.
Estimated time: about 40 hours.
Size : 5457 x 3898 x 300 dpi

The character Lara Croft is and remains the property of TOMB RAIDER, Square Enix Ltd., Crystal Dynamics realized within the contest "TOMB RAIDER REBORN Contest" by DEVIANT ART.

I would like to thank the official partners that allow us to participate in our turn and artistic way to this wonderful universe and realize our own vision of Lara Croft.

As you can see, I continue my exploration and my quest for a "realistic art style." Just look at the people whose work I admire. The graphics realism and texture work that emerges from the works of artists like D.Rapoza, B.Rigney, or M.Kuciara is particularly amazing and this is what makes me want challenge myself with every new painting.
The idea of ​​this illustration (like the others) came on me when I watched the trailer: Lara in full exploration in a hostile middle, where she meets the darkness to better raise and reborn ...!
The idea of ​​this work is more focused during a time when she is faced with something scary and uses his bow for the first time.
This work was (as the other) accomplished in part with my own custom brushes, as well as my own personal textures.

I hope you like this illustration, ... until the next ...!

Thanks for the watch

English:

Love and hate, pleasure and pain, passion and affection, caresses and scratches, man and woman ... good and evil.

Many aspects of a single great idea ... a winner and a loser, but without one of them, fight have no sense, and the opposite becomes essential... Complementary...

So the eyes of lovers, kiss almost touched, and a strong close to her face which she answered with strong scratches.

Are they in love? Or do they hate each other?

Good or evil?


-----------

I try because I don't have a tablet and win one of them is a dream (probably will be the same for a long time ;__; ).

My "tools": Photoshop CS2, my damn mouse, only at the end with the help of a small tablet (thanks Giulia!), and my friend's patience. XD


This is my work for the contest, I hope you like it.


Dedicated to everyone have supported me during the creation totally insecure.
A more special thanks to the "models" Mirò and Giulia, who have been suitable for the pose even though it was embarassment. =P

[Sorry for my english or mistakes... I do my best!]

_____________________________________________________


Italian:

Amore e odio, piacere e dolore, affetto e passione, carezze e graffi, uomo e donna... bene e male.

Molti aspetti di un unico grande concetto... un vincitore e un vinto, ma senza l'altro la lotta non avrebbe senso, e il contrario diventa essenziale... complementare...

Allora lo sguardo degli amanti, un bacio quasi sfiorato, ed una stretta forte al volto a cui rispondere con dei vistosi graffi.

Sono innamorati? O si odiano?

Bene o male?


--------------

Ho voluto tentare dato che non ho una tavoletta e vincerne una è un sogno (che probabilmente resterà tale a lungo ;__; )

I miei "strumenti": Photoshop CS2, il mio dannato mouse, alla fine una piccola tavoletta (Grazie Giulia!), e la pazienza dei miei amici. XD


Questo è il mio lavoro per il concorso, spero che vi piaccia.


Dedicato a tutti coloro che mi hanno sopportato mentre tentavo di finirlo nella totale insicurezza.
Un grazie speciale anche ai "modelli" Mirò e Giulia, prestatisi nonostante l'imbarazzo. =P

Africa already lies in ruins and the tribes are spreading across the world looking for shelter against the fire from the sky. The hyena tribe found shelter by the skyscrapers in Asia, protected by the "iron giants" they build their new primitive homes within the iron houses in hope to withstand the doom thats about to happen.

Without electricity their primal skills fast became superior to the locals and with help of their vicious beasts they overtook the whole city who now leans at their feet, begging for food and shelter. The hyena clan is a cruel and proud clan that will stand their ground until the very last end..
Nothing can stop their determination. Only the strongest spirits will live on forever...

The recourses on earth is depleted and the earth is suffering. Lava is flowing everywhere and the humans sees this as an opportunity to drain it from its last energy for the sake of its own survival.

Huge structures was built across the lands to produce energy from the energy of the lava.. Little does mankind know that the earth is about to collapse at their feet.

Vulnerable. Dangerous. Deadly. This is my take on the new Tomb Raider.

I've worked on this piece for some time and I'm quite happy with it and am looking forward to spending more time on future works. 8)

To give you a brief intro though, I've been a fan of Tomb Raider since the series came into existence, I was about 6 or 7, and I have all of the games and I can't wait to own this one as well.

The concept of this image is rather simple. Lara Croft is a tomb raider, it's just what she does. So, I figured, what else should I do, rather than having her do what she does best?

I hope everyone enjoys the image as well, and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this contest, and seeing other artists' works. <3
