Tomb Raider tribute (video process!) by Anako-ART Tomb Raider tribute (video process!) by Anako-ART
:dummy: SEE THE PAINTING PROCESS HERE: LINK:dummy:

I felt the urge to draw Lara Croft. And then I realized it soon will be Tomb Raider's 20th anniversary! So this is my tribute. Tribute to the game that had great impact on my life. Tomb Raider I, II, II, V and IV especially were my favourite games in the early 00s. Atmosphere of loneliness among forgotten tombs fired up my fascination with ancient history and archaeology, which almost led me to studying archaeology in college. =P I was absolutely in love in the game and for many years I actively took part in Tomb Raider Polish communities, which resulted in having my own translation oficially included in the Polish localization of Tomb Raider Legend intro. :lol:

So yes, this is Lara Croft that I remember, recreated in my style. Preposterous big boobs and butt are mandatory.
As you may have guessed, I rather dislike the reboot. New Lara is not *my* Lara and I treat it as a completely different series with a new character. It's obviously more realistic and aproachable, but I don't care, nostalgia is nostalgia, you know. ;p

Thank you Core Design for enriching my choldhood. <3

Painted in Photoshop CC with Cintiq 13HD tablet while listening to Alonzorion's Tomb Raider let's plays in the background

Ahh classic Lara :heart:
I was a teen when the TR games were released in the 90's.
Of course like any other teens at that time, I got a crush on her :iconiheartitplz:

You're definitely not the only one who doesn't take to the "New" Lara. I'm going to write a journal on that as well since I tried out the "New" Tomb Raider for myself. B-)

Ah I am getting all nostalgic now! I miss the old style lara croft and the old style games. The entire feel was just different than now, not saying the new games are bad they are just .. different .. in my opinion! I totally agree with the 'As you may have guessed, I rather dislike the reboot. New Lara is not *my* Lara and I treat it as a completely different series with a new character. It's obviously more realistic and aproachable, but I don't care, nostalgia is nostalgia, you know'


Any way! Getting side tracked!
Great piece and you have a cool style :) I really like it, faved it! :D

Wow cool!Love the butt, love the boobs. <3 This is the Lara Croft I remember and love too. I used to love the confidence in her character, and made her an example of how to face problems(with room-puzzles of course jajaja), but then came the reboot and all was gone. Now I'm into Nathan Drake but is not the same, I need my Croft! :D 

I have to tell, what wonderful colours! The drawing too, sure, however the colours are atonishing, put me in scene at the moment. Great picture and long live classics, as I read below. <3

Yes, "old" Lara was the one and only, no other character can replace her. It's great that she still has so many fans!

And thank you very much, I'm glad you like my picture! :)
