Tomb Raider 2012 Lara Croft - Acrylic Painting by CurlyWurly808 Tomb Raider 2012 Lara Croft - Acrylic Painting by CurlyWurly808
Painted in acrylics on canvas measured 1013mm x 804mm.
So here it is, my Lara Croft piece finally finished. It has taken me 10 days to complete and to be honest it's been fun to paint.
Towards the end of the piece I had to listen to this song [link] (Ah the nostalgia).
Hope you like the painting and if there is anything at all I could change please tell me, would sooner upload something great rather than great-ish.

Here is the [link] to every WIP image taken.

Thank you for looking.

Very great! The pose is well captured and I love how you managed to create some kind of focus / how the background fades out. I knew this became a DD even before I clicked on it - nothing mor to say.

Seeing Lara's suffering gives her a human side, aside from the fact she's presented as a normal university student who just graduated from archaeology.

What tickles my mind is whether survival will be taken more in account in the game, rather than just shooting and taking cover, since the released trailers and publicity focus more on exploration of the island and hunting. I just hope they're able to balance the game, since (although I know they're very different series) it worries me that they make an "Uncharted Raider".

I like that Lara is given a more profound story development to explain how she becomes a strong woman, yet I can't help to get past whether they make the game too soft or too hardcore.

I couldn't compare her to Nathan Drake, since she's more single minded than him, because she's always going all out with two handguns without taking cover or having help from other people, while against terrorists, thieves or agents. Also, this reboot seems to take her to the extremes, because she seems completely innocent at the beginning, to be almost "raped" and kill for her life to save herself, leaving me to guess that she'll have to uncover a mystery, making her cunning and deadly as we most people know her.

I just hope it feels different, because that's the impression its publicity caused in me.

I hope they create a balance between traditional Tomb Raider and the new survival aspect as well. I agree, seeing Lara transform from the timid University graduate we find at the start change into the deadly archaeologist we know is going to be such a great moment to witness.

Thank you for the comment! You share many of the same thoughts as I do!

Now that I've got some more insight, I gotta say: I can't stand so much publicity overflow! It's all words and no game. Can I get a demo in PSN or anything?
Seriously, watching a disrespectful journalist that barely researches on his matter, in a "developer diary", really strikes me in the head. How come can he said it's the first time Tomb Raider has a female writer and eat in front of his interviewees? It's no problem if you ask for company assets or play the game and read the credits, and have some respect for the people who work their heads to get it done.

You know, it's unsettling. Where's the development team when you need it?
