REBORN LARA: PRELUDE -Portrait (Tomb Raider 2013) by Eddy-Shinjuku REBORN LARA: PRELUDE -Portrait (Tomb Raider 2013) by Eddy-Shinjuku
This is my take on the new Lara as far as the face is concerned. Going for a bit more exotic look as I believe this would be reminiscent of the classic Lara, which I think kind of lost a bit in this new Lara.
This is conceptual per se, though the reference I closely pay attention to is the in-game character's look, which somewhat pretty different then the promo arts and trailers IMO, so I took this liberty to try to create the look I would imagine the 'in-game' Lara should look like with more definition.

NOTICE:
This is a portrait derive from the original work:



CREDITS:
- Hair and skin Brushes from Dirt2.com
- Hair brushes from falln-brushes.deviantart.com
- Screenshots for reference from the 'Crossroads' Trailer, the previous 'Turning Point' trailer and the promo arts for apparel references.
- Irina Shayk for facial reference because I read that she was modeled for this new Lara, and I found her surprisingly fitting. In of the promo art, (not the karate kid one) the brownish/sepia toned one, she resembles the model quite convincingly IMO.

First can I start off by saying...this piece is simply gorgeous. I'm a big fan of sticking to the fundamentals of a character when creating lucrative fan art, unless you feel you are fully capable of changing the character just enough to make them better. I think you did a good job at making her look positively sexy. On a the technical side, the only thing I would have chosen was another background. This one is all right, but I don't think it brings her out enough. I like the realism of the skin and shirt fabric. Beyond the easier concepts to grasp like shading and lighting, you have truly proven you have something else by your implementation of texture and colour skills. Her face is very attractive, I like how her mouth isn't closed, and how mesmerising her eyes are. Her hair is done superbly as well. Good job on this one.
What do you think?

quite the contrary, as far as this being just a simple portrait piece i think you really nailed it. As far as the full body one, I really wouldn't have rated you as high. but i think you are nearing masterhood of portrait skills.

Do you take requests?

I saw a couple of nude drawings over at your incredible gallery and I was wondering if there is a chance you could do a nude Lara drawing.

I'm not much of a painter, or into paint style arts, but I aim to paint+airbrush an artwork that imitates 3D artworks/renders :nod:
To me, 3D renders alone are too pure I so give it a "2D" style to make it look more organic and refreshing, but still have that '3D' foundation to it.

The only drawback is that, it takes such a long time to complete any given work due to details...hence my gallery is still small hehe

The babe factor is pretty strong in this new Lara, I can't ignore it and need to paint a work that does some extent of justice to her, so glad that it turns out well. :nod:
And your approval is highly appreciate since you are the guru in any Lara matters ;p

They give a proper Christopher Nolan treatment to this series! Good stuff really :nod:
I found the old Lara games are too much of a chore in gameplay and not really mind-blowing ala Uncharted...a lot of point A to point be B stuff, retrieving keys, etc.etc. This new gameplay promises innovations :thumbsup:
Plus this new Lara is such a babe without really trying to be one :iconchuuplz:

I never played the other Tomb Raiders besides a demo for Underworld, but I have played Uncharted 2, and while it was definitely cinematic, it wasn't as fun as it looked. And I really like this new direction.

I didn't care so much for the old TR games as the gameplays are pretty much a chore, finding keys, levers, etc.
But this new game is refreshing by initial judgments, especially this outdoor survival stuff implemented :nod:

But I will say Uncharted 2 had Chloe, who was really friggin hot. If I didn't asscoiate the name with my neighbor's dog...or a stripper. But yeah, sometimes it would've been better as a movie...

Though people makes a big deal of it, saying it would sexualized this character...but come on really, the things she been through in the game as this newbie adventurer, the moaning is just natural...everyone has too much imaginations these days...meh I guess because Californication:bored:

I've been playing SH since 1999 hehe
One thing about SH is that, fans and critics always compared each series with another when the truth is each series are unique and have different stories individually.
Anyways, I would have thought to make a work with one of the SH girls, but the monsters haven't got much attention, and I think the Doll is beautiful in a dark way lol

RE u say?!
Let's just say I can't wait for October, RE6 would be available then :XD:
Though Capcom is keeping much of the content pretty secretive, it's hard to make any RE6 art work since the resource is little. Leon still have that sleek hair lol
