REBORN LARA: TRICK SHOT - Tomb Raider 2013 by Eddy-Shinjuku REBORN LARA: TRICK SHOT - Tomb Raider 2013 by Eddy-Shinjuku
...Adrenaline pumps and time slows down, Lara leaps and pulls a '180' shot to her chasers...


THIS IS A HI-RES FAN-SERVICE:
Do download to appreciate the HD details, the one above is only half the size, TQ


You know those slo-mo Matrix moments? or gaming related example, those Resident Evil (movies as well) slo-mo action moments?
Hoping here to convey that cinematic John Woo-esque picture.

On a serious note, my objective is to to make a promo art, hope that is achieved here. :nod:

COMMENTS:
-For this work, I try to derived Lara's face and hair from scratch, meaning not referring to any of the available TR 2012 resources except for her apparel, this way I hope to create something fresh of her.
-My hiatus stemmed from the long hours of researching which actresses she resembles to (weeks discussing in forums and such); but in the official promo art I can't help myself that she looks like that guy from Karate Kid 1 & 2 with longer hair lol. DON'T BELIEVE ME? CHECK THIS OUT FOR A BRIEF MINDFUCK COURTESY OF YOURS TRULY: [link]

-There are couple of characters that helped me to build the imagery for this work, among them is this female archer character from Hunger Games (Jennifer Lawrence)


TECHNICALITY:
-Compared to the rest of my Lara work, I truly hope to at least take somewhat majority of the credits for this one due to abundance jigsaw pieces of paintings/drawings/airbrushing needs to be done here.
On top of that, numerous range of PS techniques are applied as well.
-Was given a tip to use 'Noise' to get that nice harmony of the elements in the work. Apparently, I figured out that a lot of digitized works out there use noises on a regular basis ( PS > Filter > Add Noise)
-Motion and Radial Blur are used a lot here.


CREDITS:
- Hair and skin Brushes from Dirt2.com
- Hair brushes from falln-brushes.deviantart.com
- A ballet pose found in Google (sorry, I'll find the link soon). Yes, this one is crucial to the anatomical reference. I still don't understand why I can't use something as resourcefully ready like those Alison Carroll LC poses. Maybe her pose are too refined and doesn't portray more noob-ish young Lara (yup, the 'older' LC that we know will owned this little girl lol)

-Will add more later...



Hope you guys enjoy this Fan Art!

The movement is incredible!  I love all the detail that'd been put in her clothes.  It's incredible!  :3

Yo, Lara be on a trick shot team. She can drop a baddie with a 360 no-scope or a leaping bow attack.

Hi there! I am going to be doing a Playthrough on my youtube channel www.youtube.com/user/menaero of Tomb Raider starting next week and I feature deviantart work during the intro and outro of my videos and was seeking permission to use this image, you will get full credit of course and a link to your deviantart page! (if you want to see how it will be used you can see examples on my current playthroughs of The Walking Dead, Dead Space and DmC: Devil May Cry) Thanks for your time!

I figured we need to see more of her in her action-y glory, this was made before the second trailer was released (that one in E3)that sneak peaks all of those action stuff :D
Glad that it's not really off the mark but embraced it.
So thanks for checking my other arts as well, looking forward for you to drop by again, cheers! XD XD

Yup, if nearly half a year is needed to refine the game, then it's justified. Though, it a long time really, I mean, it was March awhile ago lol

Just Photoshop CS5; a hybrid of airbrushing/painting + photomanip + photoshoping.

Even when she isn't as experienced, Lara Croft is dangerous. I would not want to cross paths with her the same day this happened.

Nope, I would just be a native of the island if I crossed paths with her on this day. I'd be shot right between the eyes...or better, in the eye.

Wanted to try something pretty dynamic instead of a typical passive pose, since it's Lara, making her doing something like this seems natural :nod:
