Tomb Raider 9 - Lara Croft by TholiaArt Tomb Raider 9 - Lara Croft by TholiaArt
Well, I can't spend more time on this, so here is the final result. I enjoyed myself creating a fake comic book cover, because I thought this could match ^^

I really loved doing this piece anyway... makes me feel like drawing plenty of other TR fanarts :D !

Lineart here :



Tools : Wacom 21UX + Photoshop CS5

I was surprised that this was a fake...I thought it was the real deal
Absolutely amazing.
If you haven't yet, I'd suggest making comics ! :)
Keep up the great work !

Thank you so much.
Actually, drawing comics as a job is something entirely different, and I know I couldn't handle it ^^

Yeah I suppose so, but I feel like you would be a natural at it ! :)
Actually I have plenty of comic ideas that I want to do in the future,
And I would love you to be the artist for one of them ! But the only problem is the prices you know ? ;P
Cause your style is very detailed and simply amazing. It's something that amazes me and most likely everyone else too.
But maybe some day if you are interested ?
Definitely will ask for a commission as soon as I can though !
Your art is just outstanding :)

This is really kind of you, but I can assure you I would be bad at comics. Already tried, cannot follow the rythm. I don't have enough patience neither.
To be fair, a few months ago I would have said yes to your commission, but lately I feel like I don't wanna draw anymore. I lost the passion and need a break for a while. I was also thinking about closing all of my accounts and let it go. I'm still thinking about it ^^.

Thanks for the nice words though :hug:

Dark Horse Comics are now Lara's comic home. I'm really looking forward to the series written by Gail Simone launching in Feburary. But this pic reminds me of the good ol' days of Top Cow! Fantastic work! :)

Same for me, I'm greedy for the incoming comic. I was quite disappointed with the first one, because of the graphic style which was way too clean and smooth for me.
I'm glad you like it, although if I would do it again today, it would have nothing to do with this as I finally found my own style now. ^_^

Can't wait for the day I'll have enough time to focus on my own comic for Lara :-)

Might have got confused here - was looking at entries for the Tomb Raider Reborn competion - I assumed (by the looks of it wrongly) that the view more like this links were for other entries. Apologies for the confusion.

J'aurai peut etre vu un effet couché de soleil plus accentué^^ et je regrette le coté encore un peu trop "propre des débris.

mais j'adore!!
Ta lara est superbe! la pose est très réaliste!! tu as vraiment un excellent niveau!!! que ce soit en dessin ou en colo!!

TholiaArt Featured By Owner May 12, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Merci beaucoup >_<
C'est marrant, tu es pas la première à me faire la remarque pour la pose, en fait c'est juste que mon miroir est mon meilleur ami ^^(sans narcissisme)... et c'est aussi peut-être pour ça que j'ai passé une journée entière rien que sur le dessin T_T (je suis toujours aussi lente)

Merci pour tes remarques aussi ! Je t'avoue que le couché de soleil me plaisait bien comme ça (sinon après ça devenait romantique, c'était pas l'idée lol). Pour les débris et l'usure je suis d'accord par contre.
Mais en fait, il y a plein de choses que j'aurais voulu ajouter/faire différemment,mais je n'ai vraiment plus beaucoup le temps de dessiner (à part pour le boulot je veux dire), donc arrivé dimanche soir je me suis dit "bon ok, j'arrête" sinon après je sais que je ne termine jamais...
(j'ai au moins 5 fanarts que j'ai commencé et qui n'ont jamais été terminés T_T)
