I love how old school you made her, the collar of her shirt is like it was in the game, the glasses of course, and her almost red hair. :D People have altered the old Lara too much So thanks for posting this to bring back memories of the old Lara! :love:

You're welcome ! I'm glad a few people still love our good old Lara the way she was in 1996 :D

Tomb Raider 2's Lara was perfect in my opinion, that Lara will always be Lara Croft to me. Great drawing.

Same to me, even if the new game was cool to play, Lara is not the same anymore and I still miss this kind of Lara ^^

I like the hair, but how come you didn't include temples for the glasses? As soon as Lara leaps into action, her glasses would fall off! :o
Reply
:icontholiaart:
TholiaArt Featured By Owner May 2, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Well I do had glasses without temples and let me tell you it did not fall off at all, even when I was having my running time :D
But anyway, round glasses with temples looks so oldish to me, I couldn't include that. At least, it was not my taste ^^

But lennon glasses are slowly coming back to life and with temples as well! Anyway, I absolutely adore your vision of Lara Croft. I would really, really love if Crystal Dynamics stumbled upon you profile, saw it, stolen your idea, left you with lots of cash and made a new game with this incredible Lara. Amazing work.

...that's a really, really, nice compliment, thanks a lot :hug:
Btw, I don't think CD would consider that kind of Lara for the new franchise, but well, hope makes live right ? ^^

Well, Crystal's idea of the newest TR was to introduce Lara as a newbie and then evolve her into the Lara we know. If it wasn't a very vile lie then she surely should turn into your Lara!

J'adooore la partie supérieure du visage (juste la bouche ouverte comme ça qui ne l'a met pas vraiment en valeur). Sinon elle est magnifique.

Je comprends pour le bas du visage, mais c'est aussi ce qui lui donne du charisme et de la personnalité à mon goût ^^

Mhhh justement je dirais plutôt que c'est son regard et ses sourcils qui font Lara tout craché. =p
Mais je comprends pour la bouche, on est beaucoup à aimer lui donner une bouche légèrement entrouverte qui lui donne son côté baroudeuse, sensuelle...
C'est peut-être la dentition qui est trop visible. Disons que je trouve le rendu autant "neuneu" (terme beaucoup trop fort) que sensuel. ^^;

I think I'll always prefer the old Lara, no matter how realistic and beautiful the new game is (which I enjoyed playing a lot though) ^^
