Tomb Raider Character design by TholiaArt Tomb Raider Character design by TholiaArt
Here is my chara design for Lara from Underworld. I did it for Kurtie from TR Board, on purpose for his incoming fanguide (walkthrough) for Tomb Raider Underworld. It's gonna be like several funny comic strips when I'll have enough ideas for the storylines.

But I have to keep the next step secret until Kurtie releases the fanguide :D , meaning after TRU game is released.

Tomb Raider Lara Croft (c) Eidos & Crystal Dynamics
Character design (c) me

EDIT: Uploaded a bigger size and well-polished the presentation.

i really like your manga-styled lara - it's a shame the games have now been trying to be more photo-realistic, when it would feel more refreshing if they were more adventurous with the art design - a little like nintendo do with the zelda series

Oh my... I do agree with you so much on that point... The graphics are great, true, but we do miss something "refreshing" as you said. The realistic style can be so boring...

tomb raider was originally a british game, and historically, we british have always had a kind of punk anarchic cartoony approach to our comics and games

but now TR is made in america, and americans take a more realistic approach to much of their graphic culture, lara and her backstory has also become increasingly realistic - everything has to be more credible

but a more stylised, or somewhat exaggerated approach does in fact make games more entertaining, and creates a stronger bond between player and the character they control - the french game, beyond good and evil, is a good example of this - in fact, i much prefer european and japanese comics to the stilted unadventurous style of most US comics and mundane designs in most US sci-fi films

I like the idea of this guide
hopefully I won't "need" it but it'll be cool to see your comics and to see if I missed secret stuff
and I always do!
