Lara's Burden by MarcusThomas Lara's Burden by MarcusThomas
WHOOO!!! FINALLY!!! :iconfinallyplz: I'm finished!!! I'm not quite sure if I want to make another entry... I'll just have to see what comes to me... :) This is going to be my first Tomb Raider game! I was never all that interested until I saw the new trailer last year and saw a different side to Lara... then I was all.... 'WOOOOOOOAH...' *ahem* Anyway... this is my entry... I went for a really broad and rough style with Lara and her surroundings! I hope you guys enjoy it! (Oh... and you might wanna zoom in :) )

I really like this a lot... But If I may: The only thing I'd personally change would be the text at the top. Maybe say "No One Leaves" instead (since that is a huge thing in the game)

Oh that's right!! That sounds MUCH better! And it brings a lot more weight to the picture too!! Thank you for suggesting that!!!

WOAH. Really awesome. You can even see ships in the background! I love her pose and her eyes have a exhausted but "You are going down!" kind of look.
You have some really amazing works too! Must watch. :D

That is awesome! I love how her outfit looks worn most of the time people draw adventurers or whatever with perfect clothing and I'm like why are their clothes so nice?! I have a lil sister and I always manage to dirty my clothes without doing awesome stuff XD anyways love the positioning and the background good job :clap:

I was looking at this on my laptop during school. I had about 4 people come over and say, "you KNOW that guy?" I was all like "...Yeah :iconcoolshadesplz: "

....since I do think that you'd appreciate an honest evaluation.....first of all I got to say: Hats off! This is an amazing piece & I would be happy if I could some day paint this way.
Little observations: I don't think she stands out enough against the background. It all looks awesome in itself, details are amazing! But the bg kind of "swallows her up" a bit. Her left upper arm appears to be a bit too skinny compared to the right, even though it's drawn back. Also her boobs *cough* look very "pressed" upward and together.....maybe lower the shadow beneath a bit? Would look more natural in my opinion.
Hope I could be a bit of a help :) really, I didn't mean to pluck it apart, it looks great! God bless!

You rock bro! I missed this great heroine, I haven't played it for a while.

How do I vote for this for this? :meow:

MarcusThomas Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013  Student General Artist
Thanks!! :D And aaah man I WISH you could vote... The 25 semi-finalists are going to be decided by full-time deviantArt staff and the final 3 winners will be picked by the Tomb Raider art director Brian Horton. It's all a bit intimidating for me since I can't even get some of my 'best' work featured in certain premium digital artist groups lol...
