This is a gift to my sister who is a lover of traveling and exploring, as well as the sweet and delicious things in life. I gift her with an illustration of a hot air balloon made of sweets, ice-cream, and the many other desserts that she loves.
The journey is infinite.....The possibilities are endless. The only limitations are the ones that we hold within our own minds. I started doing digital art 5 years ago...and when I first saw the level that other artists were at it was discouraging. But here I am five years later able to compete in Competitions with some of the best artists out there. The caption in the artwork says, "The world is vast and frightening but, with this single pencil i shall CONQUER IT." This phrase along with the image represents my journey. I kept to it even when I was frustrated and tired. You can conquer any journey with effort and maybe a little luck.
The drawing was done mostly with pencil and paper, but there was a lot of editing in the photoshop process.
I wanted to show that the game itself is not only about Lara but also about the environment which has always been a very important part for the gameplay of the tomb raider series. I wanted to depict, that it's also the environment that has changed/created/reborn Lara in the new game and so I implemented a lot of it I hope you like it!
The picture is not in it's full resolution. The dimensions are 4463 x 5990px or 37,79 cm x 50,72 cm at 300dpi.

Something I tell myself whenever things get tough, more so when it's art-related. There's no limit to the levels, but you know you're leveling up when things get harder Whipped this up real quick for the contest, since I found out about it kinda late but still wanted to join anyways. If you guys like it, please vote! It would be very much appreciated
