Here is my third work for the contest on LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER REBORN organized by Deviant Art.
Software used: Painter 11 + Photoshop + Tablet Intuos 4L.
Estimated time: about 40 hours.
Size : 5457 x 3898 x 300 dpi
The character Lara Croft is and remains the property of TOMB RAIDER, Square Enix Ltd., Crystal Dynamics realized within the contest "TOMB RAIDER REBORN Contest" by DEVIANT ART.
I would like to thank the official partners that allow us to participate in our turn and artistic way to this wonderful universe and realize our own vision of Lara Croft.
As you can see, I continue my exploration and my quest for a "realistic art style." Just look at the people whose work I admire. The graphics realism and texture work that emerges from the works of artists like D.Rapoza, B.Rigney, or M.Kuciara is particularly amazing and this is what makes me want challenge myself with every new painting.
The idea of this illustration (like the others) came on me when I watched the trailer: Lara in full exploration in a hostile middle, where she meets the darkness to better raise and reborn ...!
The idea of this work is more focused during a time when she is faced with something scary and uses his bow for the first time.
This work was (as the other) accomplished in part with my own custom brushes, as well as my own personal textures.
I hope you like this illustration, ... until the next ...!
Thanks for the watch
