Return of the Tomb Raider

It was only a question of time, wasn't it? Several years ago, I was Internet famous for about 3 days when somebody somewhere somehow noticed that I had a guy in skimpy shorts who looked like a male Lara Croft. And for a few days, I got interviewed, got hundreds of likes and comments on pictures which were several years old, I think I trended on Twitter even though I didn't know what Twitter was and I even got a delightfully hateful article on the disgusting oversexualisation of my character *lol* and I still find my super old pictures everywhere. Mostly without credit *lol*
This incarnation of Nate is actually much closer to the original than any of those who followed when I tried to update him before. He looks younger, he has similar hair... this picture isn't my best work ever. I just test rendered him, slapped him on a background and did some postwork. Thought I'd share anyway. And now excuse me, I gotta get back to melting in the damn heat in Germany...

Even if it was just the Internet, that was still pretty cool to be famous. And just the other day, I saw a real life but muscle bound version of Male Laura the other day. So this is perfect!

I doubt it and the concept isn't that unique anymore as it was... 8 or 9 years ago. A lot of people have characters like this now it seems. :)

It finally cooled down here, I hope in Sweden too :)

Oh, he's still quite lovely. 

And how ironic is it that they bitched about how sexualized he was... but were likely fans of how 'empowered' Lara was?

Male Lara Croft?
Or rather, Lars Croft? XD

I like his shorts! He looks ready for action.

I see he’s saving money on material with those shorts. No complaints here.

Finally a male Lara Croft! And not just any… a fantastic and very masculine one! This is really a terrific piece of art. And I definitely hope to see more of this super handsome dude!

Sieht niedlich aus, der Kleine - und ist definitiv better als die weibliche Version, denn bei der denke ich immer an Angelina Jolie denken, und die kann ich nicht ausstehen. - Schmelzen?! Oh, und "viel Spaß" beim Schmelzen - ich mache mit ...Day113 - Melts
