AMAZON LARA: In Elements - Tomb Raider 2013 promo by Eddy-Shinjuku AMAZON LARA: In Elements - Tomb Raider 2013 promo by Eddy-Shinjuku
Do download the full-size if you may, resizing it in dA apparently muddy up the textures, TQ

...one becomes attuned with the surroundings when long enough indulged...

:bulletgreen: The tattered clothing is more of a symbolism instead of a fan-service. It's deliberately made to look like the iconic Lara tank top and short-pants. What that does here is metaphorically 'glimpsing' the person in Tomb Raider 2013 of what she'll become: From a graduate to the Lara that we know of.

:bulletgreen: I was inspired by the good ol''RAMBO: First Blood' movie where Stallone is literally the king of the wilderness, while presenting a clear message not to play games when you are the prey.
So hope you enjoy this depiction of a woman at her predatory peak. :nod:

I have not played the game & probably wont. Most games don't work on my PC because its angsty, and i don't have any consoles. Unless its out on wii. and even then moneyyyyyy. I'd rather buy hats.

This is spectacular, well done man. Very sexy to boot, but not overly-so.

I tried to emanate this 'primal' sexiness but stirring away from elements of promiscuity, I believe this new Lara doesn't need that or at least not anymore; she can hold up just by badassery alone :nod:

Btws thanks for the view and sorry for the tad late reply ;p

Oh yeah absolutly, they're movies are much scarier than ours! The game is so good it reminded me of The Descent film if you've ever seen that movie.

Now that you mentioned it, Lara (the actress in the movie practically looks like her with the tank-top and climbing gear)really was in the movie, this: [link] ;p

Yes, I'm just at this point in the game with cannibals and caves with bloody river, it really screams The Descent, especially when these guys starts sneaking about ;p
It's either a very awesome coincidence or the developers were inspired by the movie.

Did you really have to give her GIGANTIC unnatural and very unrealistic breast size? I practically can see her nipples...I find it very demoralizing to the character as I see her as more than a sexual object but a person who fought for their survival...not someone who fought for their survival to get a boob job to look like some kind of slut. But in either case...Beautiful artwork. Nice concept.

Yup, the new refreshed take on this game really appeals to me as the previous installment didn't took things too seriously, it was verging uncanny and didn't treat the character with the realism sense of human lol
