Ganz ehrlich: Ich bin eigentlich gar kein Lara Croft-Fan. Aber Deine Zeichungen haben mich in dieser Hinsicht echt bekehrt! Ich glaube, bei diesem Bild stimmt einfach alles; Körperhaltung ideal zeichnerisch eingefangen, sodass es richtig natürlich wirkt... und auch die Gesichtszüge sind sehr ausdrucksvoll!

Wow... echt eine Super Skizze... und dann die Lieart drüber erst. Was hast Du da genommen? Das ist doch nicht der DVD Pen, oder? Es wirkt irgendwie... sehr... viel filigraner! Die Figur insgesamt ist auch wirklich toll getroffen... Ich wollte ja erst sagen "etwas jung" aber habe dann die Trailer gesehen... und da psst es natürlich perfekt. Wobei ich zugeben muss dass ich noch nicht recht weiß was ich davon halten soll. Es ist arg düster und Lara kommt ein wenig sehr jung rüber für mich, nicht so wie ich sie kenne (ok, da ist nur die Jolie Version). Ich bin in jedem Fall gespannt was da noch von Dir kommt. =)

I actually like this incarnation of Lara, and your sketch of her is gorgeous as always. To those that think new Laura is whiney, well this is a total reboot of the series with a much more realistic and inexperienced Lara. In this game, she's never been on an epic adventure before, and is just one young woman trapped in a very bad situation on an island she knows nothing about, is surrounded by very dangerous men, and has little idea who she can trust. It's a great setup for a woman-against-all-odds story.

TOMB Raider is no longer an appropriate name for this franchise. I think Survival Raider is more fitting based on the recent trailers. Crystal Dynamics is definitely trying to outfox the Uncharted series by doing what Uncharted does, plus adding the gory violence, horrific creature encounters, and potentially gruesome deaths of the latter Resident Evil games.

I agree. I absolutely love the direction they are taking her, story-wise. Anniversary, Legend and Underworld were good games, fun games. But somehow... I lost a bit the connection to Lara, she was too much of a caricature lately. The character was in need for a serious re-imagining, and it looks like they got it right this time. She feels more real than ever before. And I like the setting! I have a faible for people who got lost somewhere (Voyager, Farscape, BSG... :D) Oh, and I'm pretty sure there will be tombs. I can't wait.

The only downside is... I have to learn how to put that new Lara to paper *looks up tutorials for flesh woonds, blood and dirty clothes* :D

This is an awesome sketch of Lara. Are you basing these off of any particular version of her or are these all scratch?


That new game looks rather... I mean it LOOKS nice, but Lara seems a bit on the whiney side. Eh.

Well, it's an origin story. It's only natural to show the difficulty and struggle of this journey that she's on. Without that struggle, there can be no celebration at the end of her becoming who she is - the hero. Bruce Wayne was also whiney in the beginning :D

And thank you for the compliment :). I'm basing these drawings on the Lara from Tomb Raider: Legend. :)
