Lara Croft by danosborne Lara Croft by danosborne
My entry in the Tomb Raider Reborn contest.

Wow, I finally finished her. I spent ages on this one, all textures were created using custom brushes I made especially for this project. I wanted to focus on her as a character, depicting her as a battered beauty, so I chose to do a portrait rather than an action pose.

Painted using brushes by Brushbitch [link]

EDIT: Added god rays and flaring effects. Added palm trees and fixed aspect ratio.

Hope you like the finished painting....

Very Pretty! I like the effects. What you've done with the look of the clothing bandage is great!

Thanks a lot! I created a custom brush to do her arm hairs for the back lighting glow and it turned out to be really good for painting frayed and ripped fabric
