This is my entry for the Tomb Raider contest as part of a promotion for the latest Tomb Raider game.
It's been a while since I've worked so meticulously on a piece, over all I'm pleased with this one. Hopefully the judges like it too! lol. There has been so many amazing entries by other artists already, I would hate to be a judge for this contest because so many submissions are truly unique and beautiful. Best of luck everyone!
This started as a 11x17 pencil drawing, which I then scanned into photoshop and coloured. You can see some of my progress on my tumblr: [link]
No extra brushes or textures were used, this is all from using the photoshop default brushes.
When I first started on this there were a lot of very traditional tomb raider entries already and I wanted to do something a little different. I also didn't want to focus on her beauty and wanted something more action orientated for my portfolio. So I decided to have her plunging off a cliff from a slipped footing or perhaps just the only option from getting out of the way of the hungry maw of the wolf! Obviously she isn't going to go down without a fight. He can eat the last arrow!
