Tomb Raider by Charlie-Bowater Tomb Raider by Charlie-Bowater
I could have easily spent another day or so just going over this and trying to perfect everything, but alas; I'm out of time! So here it is, imperfections and all.

I don't make a habit out of entering contests, but I figured as the last one I entered was about 12 years ago... It was probably about time, plus I love the sound of this one! I wanted to give it a bit of a poster feel and took a little inspiration from some of my favorite movies and posters; Indiana Jones, Back to The Future... all my favorites, you get the idea.

No references for this one, just a butt load of grain and grunge textures! Grrrrr.

Good luck to everyone who entered!

Photoshop CS6 & Wacom Intuos 5.

Pretty awesome. I was curious where did you find the grunge textures? Also I was curious how long did this take to complete. Love the expression on her face. The only thing I have to say is where is the weapon? Did she lose it trying to get out of the tunnel?

Orginal Lara is sweet, but yours... Is older... Is prettier.
