Tomb Raider Reborn final by SethBrandon Tomb Raider Reborn final by SethBrandon
Lara pushed aside the tattered sail, and peered warily into the shattered hull of the once mighty vessel...

Here is my first entry in the Tomb Raider Reborn Contest.
Created for the contest, hand drawn/colored by me in cs5 with a "bamboo fun" tablet by wacom.
Original size 6000x9000 at 300ppi. (20in x 30in)

I fell in love with the character all over again, during the process of making this piece. It took a long time but I enjoyed myself the entire time.

Hope you all enjoy it as well.

You asked from critique in the contest page but you obviously demonstrated you don't want any. Several people have said your blacks are too black, and you brushed it off saying its personal taste and basically called me an asshole.

Even though you are not worth the time, I went and color picked from your Lara's shadows. The result is literally perfect black. Here is proof:

Of course since you don't give a shit about getting better since you haven't made any mistakes in 22 years according to you and get defensive in the face of critique you pretended you wanted, you will just make a bunch of excuses.

Good luck with that.

the cover of the first pirates movie was an influence for my color scheme, I just pushed it a bit further.

Horton according to the rules, but we've seen how the rules have been applied.

Should be decided by the end of the week. In my mind, out of the top 25 there is only one.

One that should be the winner, but there are a few other successful pieces.

Unfortunately not 25 successful pieces:(
