LARA : Hidden prey by BGorilla LARA : Hidden prey by BGorilla
Here is my fourth 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 70 hours.
(it becomes a very hard to estimate, because as I work simultaneously on two or three illustrations together for a month 10 hours a day so as not to saturate and lose observation at first glance...).
Size : 3543 x 4724 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."
This time, I wanted more jungle atmosphere, with background scenery quite rich. I treated him like a visual kind promotional poster.
The idea of ​​this illustration (like the others) came on me when I watched the trailer: Lara stolen in the jungle and hunted like a prey in a hostile middle, where she meets the darkness to better raise and reborn ...!
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 ...! (phew ...! I getting tired ...!) XD

I think that Lara in this new game is a mix of predator and prey. Few of the fanarts are capturing this essence. Yours is one of the few that does.

this would obviously be pretentious to confirm, and it is not up to me to say but this is exactly the mindset I had when I made this illustration.
