Entry for the Tomb Raider: A Survivor is Born- contest

What inspired me to create this piece are the different environments that Lara Croft encounters through her journey.
No matter where she goes, danger is always there. May it be high or low there is no escaping her destiny.
I tried to understand what makes her Lara Croft and came up with the idea titled "Embrace". I believe that Lara's Adventures makes her who she is and the more dangerous it is, the more tougher she becomes as she develops her character.

I wanted to add emotion and meaning in this image that defines her. An entire story in a single picture.
From my perspective, i see Lara Croft get reborn not once, not twice but from every adventure. She embraces the challenge, she adapts to it and makes it her world!

I wanted to stay away from being badass and post a peaceful image of lara on her journey ^^
And, if you have any critique, it would be appreciated =)

I also used some brushes from charfade.

//Edit: Lightened the picture up because some had trouble see anything in the dark area, also added some fog to make a better sense of depth

I thought I'd try out for the Tomb Raider contest. There is no way I'd win, there are so many art works that are much MUCH better! But I'm really happy with this~ I did everything by myself! I'm so happy!

I loved the new game, it was so amazing, the the cut scenes were wonderful! I liked the action too, everything about it was so beautiful.

My really big entry for the good vs. evil contest...

I have been working on this for some time now, and I thought I'd explain this piece a little bit.

I didn't want to do the classic devil vs. angel interpretation, or the face split into two pieces... This piece is supposed to be more than that...

It represents evil through greed. Greed is the desire for greater and greater wealth and power. In this scene, the hands desperately cling to precious stones, coins, and jewelry as it falls like sand through their fingers. The sand represents the worthlessness, and inconstancy of all evil and selfish desires.

The sand falls through the fingers showing how their greed is never satisfied, and simply grows on itself. The sand pools at the bottom, surrounding everything, and suffocating those trapped beneath it. None of the greedy hands try and help the one struggling from underneath. Both this and the suffering faces emerging from the dunes represent the consequences of sin and reckless greed.

But where does good come in. I struggled with this for some time before deciding, and eventually decided to leave it up for interpretation. Is good simply the absence of evil, or is it more than that?

Humans with their hands designed for taking, grasping, and stealing, represent evil in this picture. The good, therefore, is the one thing devoid of human influence: nature. The tree seemed to fit in with the piece, being the one beautiful part of the picture.

Also, the tree coming out of the hand (which is decomposing into soil) serves as an analogy for the ability of humans to do good deeds, even if this ability is usually neglected.

Thank you all for your support, and wish me luck in the contest!
