Lara Croft - Tomb Raider by AndyFairhurst Lara Croft - Tomb Raider by AndyFairhurst
Thought I'd give the competition a go. More than anything though I did this for fun and to try and improve my foresty/jungly environments.

WIP and close-up - [link]

Painted in photoshop CS5 over quite a few days.

Thanks for looking :)

P.S Made her skin tones a little less green... made her look a little healthier and added some skulls and slight sun rays in the bg :)

I love it, but as an archer I have to ask why she is drawing her bow, unless she sees an enemy, drawing her bow the entire time she walks through the jungle would be extremely tiring, and would damage the bow.

Agree. Her expression, her stance, and the fact she's draw that bow all says alarm. She's seen or heard something that frightens her. Those skulls on sticks wouldn't be reassuring! And I think you have a good jungle environment here. The mist and sunlight suggests heat and humidity, and you can imagine the soft song of the stream, and maybe the birds have just hushed up.

Thank you for such an in-depth comment! It is great to think people would try and interpret my work in such a way :)

You're welcome! Most of the time, Lara Croft is shown as fearless and determined. Seeing her fearful and uncertain, before she acquired her skills and experience, is interesting.

Lara looks good, but I really like how you cast your jungle; I like the uncharacteristic apprehension on her face. The setting reminds me of the backgrounds seen in the original "King Kong." You expect that jungle to keep going and going. I know this might sound silly, but the terrain reminds of mountain scenes here in the Appalachians. You can see this scale of greenery in the deep mountain forests.
