Tomb Raider Reborn by TsunamiXD Tomb Raider Reborn by TsunamiXD
Started this sometime in Januari I think. At first I was rather enthousiastic about it, then as time progressed it was heading in a dead end direction for a while. Got tired of it and procrastinated the thing as usual. I kept working on it in short sessions though and eventually managed to get something that I liked. Story of my art as usual, a process of death and rebirth... a couple of times over :P

anyway! I'm extremely geeked out about the new Tomb Raider reboot! The second I saw the new design of Lara I wanted to do my interpretation on it. I really love the more human and gritty approach they took and I personally think this is the best thing they could've done to breath new life into this dying franchise. I Pre-ordered the game as soon as I could and have been waiting impatiently since.

Personally I have mixed feelings about this drawing. Probably because it didn't go as I wanted for a long and many times before it came close to this. I wasn't certain to continue or just call it finished either. But knowing myself I'll never call any drawing finished so I decided to just submit it already and cross my heart. Hope you like it.

This drawing wasn't originally intended for the Tomb Raider Reborn contest as I started it way before they announced it but I might as well enter in it now.

24 hours left till release >.<

EDIT: wow I'm very surprised how many +favs this has gotten so far. This is really quite a treat. Been a while since I got this many in one day. Thanks guys!! Guess I was wrong to doubt this one ^^"

I was actually the most worried about the resemblance really so that's nice to hear. As for her expression I tried to make her look exhausted but undefeated at the end of her conquest, as I think a survivor would look. So I suppose that goes paired with a sense happiness and relief. Like I said though, I tried, the rest was luck haha :P but good catch! thanks for your comment! :)

It gets even better after unlocking the other weapons. Especially when you get ahold stuff like the grenade launcher... and get to hear the enemy yell about it just before they 'splode. So it's definitely been a game worth it's hype. I'll give it that. Though in my case I run off whenever I sense some treasure and tend to ignore the animals.

Eh could be if you nolife it through out the 2 days :XD: Apparently it's about 12 or so hour long, which is fairly good length for such a game.

Haha well at least it will be good and memorable 10 hours, would kind of suck if it dragged on for 20-30 hours with no variety etc.
