UNDERWORLD LARA: Two Is The Way To Be- Tomb Raider by Eddy-Shinjuku UNDERWORLD LARA: Two Is The Way To Be- Tomb Raider by Eddy-Shinjuku
Photoshop CS6: Painting, Airbrushing and Photoshop Post-processing.
18 hours +/-


- Watched 'The Tourist' [link] and I based the face on that classy and gracious Jolie look in this movie. Yes, coincidentally she 'was' Lara Croft but this has minor influence to do with it; it's a look I wanted to capture. Especially the lips :nod:
- Tried to keep her looking 'video game-y' or 'Pseudo 3D' here and bridge it with touches of realism. I believe TR: U Lara has strong grounds in the VG realm, so it's best to celebrate her as a VG Icon in 3D form instead of attempting to fully depict a realism render of her.
- I moved away from the gritty and outdoorish theme and went all vogue in this piece. Just a tribute to encapsulate the beauty of this VG icon where we spent most time ogling the rest of hers lol.
- I've made these effort to promote the new Lara Croft in my gallery, but I had this nagging feeling why it's hard to convinced everyone of her - I just remembered her predecessor, the one that got me bonkers about 6 years ago in the game called Tomb Raider:Underworld! :thumbsup:

I supposed there are heaps of things from the 'old' Lara that didn't quite carried out to the new one, certain finesse and grace are part of them among many ;p
Having said, the new LC is justifiably hot ;p
