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.
