There it is! Fiiiinally! I've been working on this ever since the contest was announced. A sculpture of Lara Croft being attacked by a wolf, ONE of the most memorable scenes of the game, for me at least. Entirely handmade using polymer clay and apoxie sculpt. Also used some turf and bushes for the base, from woodland scenics. Lara measures 7 inches long and the wolf 8 inches. Oh, I've had a hard time taking good pictures T_T sorry about that!
Lara is my first full human sculpture I've ever done and I'm glad with how she turned out! Wish I had more time to work on this piece though but it's okay, I'll probably be doing more tomb raider sculptures in the future anyway! This project made me want to sculpt more characters!
Also, I've finished the game yesterday....And I CANNOT believe how awesome it is... I can't believe tomb raider has come this far! I'm so proud to be a fan! Outstanding job Crystal Dynamics, thank you for giving us this amazing game!

This took all of the time, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

ETA: Aaaaand it occurs to me I probably should've explained just what the hell this is. It's an alphyn, a creature used in heraldry that's said to have the front limbs of an eagle (or a dragon, but if you know how I draw dragons...), a long tail with a knot in it, and a mane (and other tufts of longer hair here and there). It also has a weird tongue, but obviously that isn't shown. I made it a bit more wolflike than my references because apparently the name comes from a word for wolf. And...that's about all I can think of to say. I just love them.
