When you say 'interpretation' of her latest transformation.. is it a re design of her appearance in the latest game..? so a historical lara?.. Sorry I'm confused, please specify.. X)

You could never have made it more impossible for a photo-manipulation artist or anyother None digital painting artist to contribute to this contest with this "asset pack" ..

I'd hardly call it impossible. If anything it'st he opposite.

Being an artist that solely paints digitally, I don't really see the problem. The point is to create your own take on Lara based on the data given. A character that's digital to begin with.

And it isn't possible to use a different model/stock-photo for a photo-manipulation entry? Isn't that the point to photo-manipulation to begin with?

'Simply' editing an already existing image isn't exactly photo-manipulation.

But I guess "as people pointed out" this is what the contest holders actually had in mind, entries consist of digital paintings only, and that's cool of course .. :)

You just might be XD
Personally I use (self)rendered 'basic' 3D models, then use photoshop to edit the images/backgrounds etc. :)

This is how I use photomanips to create a video-game fan arts ..
[link]

I use photos of the game mash them together and create something new and sometimes awesome ..

and when this particular game [link] was about to get released there was a similar contest here on dA, and the asset pack was just brilliant and deserved to be called a "pack" ..

while this one is not even worth calling it an asset Jpeg, cause then it won't be filled with text like this ..

KirikouYuki Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, that explains it :)

So rather than actual photos it's more like 'image-manipulation'.
You learn something new every day :)

Nice work by the way!

Well, to use actual photos needs a budget and most of us can't afford it most of the time ..

Yeah, that is kind of the point. They want to see YOUR take on Lara, not just reusing their image. Otherwise, why bother with the contest?
