Portrait - Lara Croft by KimiSz Portrait - Lara Croft by KimiSz
After a brief hiatus I'm back! I went on vacation to relax and recharge my batteries (including the artistic ones!), so I didn't produce too much. Well, to resume my activities, I decided to paint a simple observation study using as a reference the new Lara Croft of Tomb Raider games. Crystal Dynamics is developing a reboot of the series dealing with a younger and less sexualized character as it was before.

I thought the redesign of Lara was phenomenal! And after seeing the new trailer I was even more tempted to play this game, but for now, I decided to make a simple portrait for study purposes.

The reference was taken from the CGI trailer shown at E3 2011. The painting was done in Photoshop CS4 with a Wacom Tablet Intuos4.

Lara Croft and Tomb Raider franchise belongs to Square Enix.

Definitely agree with you on that, Storytellertobe. Oh and to KimiSz, the game is AWESOME, I played for the PS3 and loved it (totally agree with everything you said in your description as well). Although the beginning had one stupid moment, this game really does portray a much less sexualized view of the character, it interesting to watch her become such a badass. Hope you have the chance to play it in the future! :D

Excellent job capturing the likeness of the "New Lara". I am excited about this project as well. I thought the old Tomb Raider was getting a bit cliche', hackneyed, and stale.

Very true, I just hope they don't screw this up with this new Lara. Her design is too good to be destroyed in a pitiful game XD~
