Tombraider by mikepacker Tombraider by mikepacker
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 absolutely love the tombraider franchise! You have given her justice with this great piece of artwork =D! Keep up the good work. 
By the way, since i can tell your a fan, I'm currently selling a special edition xbox 360 copy of tomb raider with a special hard cover comic. Check it out www.ebay.ca/itm/141565149054?s… =D  Tomb raider ftw! =) =)

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. :icongoodjobplz: 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.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you picked up on the survivor aspect I was going for. I kinda wish I did a badass one like everyone else, might have made the semis. Oh well, such is life.

Glad to here you're a Lara fan. I am too, shes a Great character.

Ps. I think this is first time I've met another kiwi here on DA. What part of the country are you in?

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 :P

Yeah, as good as artwork was, a lot of them looked like they could be a still shot from the game and didn't tell the story behind the character.

I agree. She hasn't changed, just a great idea by the game company to tell the origin behind her character.

I'm from Christchurch. Kiwi jokes would be funny! No one else will have a clue what we are talking about. Haha. :D

Haha I'm glad to see someone else agrees with me for once -_-;

Hmm yeah, if I could think of any kiwi jokes. If I could think of some they'd probably end up being tui signs or something XD

Her face is perfect. So many people had trouble giving her the right facial composure and expression. This is amazing though! Great work.
