Tomb Raider - Surreal valley by ~Matchack
The suggester says: "...great Tomb Raider fanart, really far from the usual artworks we're used to see about this game. I really like the composition, the dreamy effect of this surreal background and the high amount of details the artist put in it!"

here's a work I've submitted to the gnomon workshop contest, I imagine it's one of Lara Croft adventures - it would be nice to play this kind of a bit twisted game :)

EDIT - a lot of texture work and defining details, colour corrections etc. I think it improved. I still want to work a bit on character, though.

You should enter this in Square Enix's Tomb Raider fanart contest!  I think it would blow them away, and get you a lot of notice, if not also publication and cash.  www.tombraider.com/contest/  As soon as I heard about the contest, I remembered this gorgeous painting of yours and had to come find you again!  :)

Pretty amazing stuff, I think if you can pull off thumbnails so well lighted and detailed like you do so well when you color them they must look epic!

I'm without words.  This is the coolest thing I have ever seen, and a truly astounding painting!  Do you sell prints of this, by any chance?  I would love to have it on my wall to stare at every day!  :heart:

This is beautiful, and I love how you don't notice anything weird with the background until you turn your head a little bit and you're just like, "Wait a second. 0_0"
And then it becomes epic!

I love this but i dont think it fits the Tomb Raider game. Take Lara out and its still a stunning piece that would be in a fantasy genre. nice work!

Submissions for this contest have to be after a certain date, so since this is an old work from before the contest, it would be disqualified.
Yes, probably.

After playing the game I think that this is a great image to express the mystery behind the story's events and Lara trying to make sense of them... I love it. Good work!
