Don't mess with the Raider by Greenkey2 Don't mess with the Raider by Greenkey2
Really, you're better off staying out of her way ;)

All done at last :D About 9 or 10 hours work, with my usual array of B pencils, tissues and rolled-up bits of paper to blend the fine details.

I'm really happy with her expression, hair and leotard, but less so with her hands and pistols. Mind you, the photo-ref in those areas was very blurry, so I'm not too annoyed at that.

Meh, only three sheets of paper left in this pad! :( *wanders off to add to shopping list*

Love it! She's amazing. Your art is amazing. There isn't really much more that can be said! What's your favourite Tomb Raider game?

Thank you! :hug: That's very kind of you to say. My favourite? Has to be the TR4-TR5-AoD story arc (I tend to count them as one group, since the storyline(s) is so intimately intertwined). I'm an old school Raider at heart. And yours?

No problem :-) I love the most recent one, though I've heard many criticise it. I like the other games I've played - legend and anniversary. But I don't think I have a console that can play the older ones. I'd really like to, but I think I'd need a PC? It's such a great series though and she's an excellent character!

The original games are all available for the PC, and are usually extremely cheap. Definitely worth your time - she IS a great character :D

Definitely! It's good to hear that you can still get hold of them, but I'm an Apple Mac user... Still, thanks for your help. :-)

Flipping HELL. Now that is I call talent manifesting itself on the monitor I have before me. The shading, the realism, the expressions, the guns, the pose. It all jumps out from the screen towards me and I find it just a tad overwhelming given this is one of the best Lara Croft pics I've ever seen.

I don't say that lightly either. I made a point of thinking back through fan art and official art sketches I've seen and I recall nothing that comes close except Elysia's pictures.

Keep up the awesome work. Amongst other attributes it has, its fuel for my own endevours :-P
