My entry to the Tombraider competition. Went for a poster style. I drew inspiration from some of my favorite illustrated posters of Indiana Jones and Star Wars. Pencil drawn and coloured in Photoshop. Approx 25 hours. All art by me (Mike Packer).
I think you perfectly captured the fact that Lara was forced to become a survivor, and had to kill people. She's tough as nails and probably scared as hell. XD I think you should've won, not many other people captured her development as well as you, most of them only seem to be of her badass side :3 I love Lara as a character and you've done her excellent justice.
Your very welcome I'm glad you didn't go with the running theme and I wish the judges had thought about not only picking the great art but the art with feeling. No denying that the winner's art was incredible, I just didn't feel any attachment or meaning. Your's did that for me ^^
People seem to think that Lara isn't the same-old Lara but I think the new game explains why she is who she is now. It was great writing for a video game too :3
Oh and Auckland I think this is also the first time I've seen another kiwi hanging around. We can sit over here and talk private jokes or something ... Or not haha
