REBORN LARA: Weapons Of Choice - Tomb Raider 2013 by Eddy-Shinjuku REBORN LARA: Weapons Of Choice - Tomb Raider 2013 by Eddy-Shinjuku
THIS IS A HD FAN-SERVICE, DO DOWNLOAD FOR YOUR LARA REQUIREMENTS. TQ.

PORTRAIT VERSION HERE, clean and innocent:


It's been awhile since I made HD work like this, but the E3 fever got me itching to produce this, I manage to find cumulative of 20hrs+ last week to complete this work.

This time I try to make something a bit more colorful in my Lara fanarts, which are usually gritty. I may be slow, I realized the island and environment is colorful after all lol...the gradient color scheme of this work is inspired by the new promo art btw.

Yes, why is she holding something quite familiar you ask?!
Well, no specific reason, just a teaser or a spoof for TR 2013 since I don't konw if she'll ever pick up the dual wielding H&K USP MATCH anytime anywhere in the game. I mean, dual-wielding is a serious business really! The kick-back and all....

BUT, from the E3 summary, it is speculated that the twin-guns will be back, let's wait and see then :nod:

CREDITS:
- Heckler & Koch USP Match 9mmX19 guns. This is one of the most popular gun featured in movies, TV, games and anime. Check this link for more info:[link]
- 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.

- Will add more soon...

lol Your gallery I learn a lot about the painter~ly stuff as I'm only good in airbrushing - your arts are organic and expressive, something that really is lacking in my gallery...

Anyways, allow me to shamelessly promote my new work at attempting realism anime hehe: [link]

CHEERS! :iconnodplz:

Background, it's 40% photo-reference and 60% paint, kind of a mix.
I use Photoshop CS5 :nod:

Yeah, the guns are iconic features of the 'classic Lara', though recently at E3 they announced that she may pick up the dual guns, and of course not these custom ones lol

I hope the interpretation stays true to the new Lara Croft since there are few 'versions' of her...since it's all about gaming, I chose to render the in-game Lara :thumbsup:

Nice!

If you happen to want to worry about spelling, do you mean "Duellist" (a person who duels) rather than "Dualist" (a person who believes in a binary divine, like Good/Evil or God/Satan, etc.)?

(A minor matter in either case.)

:iconeddy-shinjuku:
Eddy-Shinjuku Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! :iconxd--plz:

I mean dualist as a person who wields a dual-wielding weapon, or any two objects and fuses it as one form...
This character made her self iconic dual-wielded this specific gun, I think the title resonates most with the Lara Croft fans.

No, not Dualism as in opposing sides like for e.g. ying-yang, as you describe. =D
Though, shooting each gun with two hands require a discipline where you need to follow a rhythm (alternate between left and right), so if one hand shoots faster/slower then the other, both will go out of harmony, hence duality needs to be retain as both right and left hand opposes here. :nod:
