Lara Croft - Survival by JoeyJulian Lara Croft - Survival by JoeyJulian
This is my entry into the Lara Croft Reborn Contest.

I wanted to create an image for this contest that captured the intense nature of the situations Lara is facing on the road to finding herself. Using fear and determination, I wanted to create a visual struggle between her choice and the coming moments.

This has been a very fun challenge an I have learned a lot from it. I wish everyone the best of luck and hope to find mine among the top chosen. :)

I'll be playing the game soon and what I love here is the fragility of the character, she is going through hell but she powers on through.

I´m really liking this.

There are some great entries in this contest, but this is the one I find myself coming back to the most.
I feel your artwork meets the four criteria (creative use of the new Lara design, overall impact, technical skills, and printability) the best.
While the other entries are mostly about Lara striking some basic pose, yours actually tells a story and is more loyal to the actual game´s style
and mood.

The composition is excellent and harmonious, I like the contrast and the handling of the warm and cool tones.
You´ve created a nice element of danger in the scene. There is a nice flow and movement in the picture, the eye is immediately
drawn to Lara, then moves to the right, around the painting and returns naturally to the focal point, which is Lara´s face.
What´s more important, you really nailed the design of the new Lara. She looks sweet and innocent, a little bit insecure - not quite
yet that confident Tomb Raider she´s destined to become. The voodoo skulls add a nice storytelling element that bridges the
artwork to the game. That blurred foreground element incorporates an extra bit of realism which really grabs the viewer into
the scene, as if we were actually hiding there together with Lara.

Yeah, this is probably my favorite entry, I could easily see this as a centerfold ad in some playstation magazine.
Best of luck to you in the contest, if this doesn´t end up among the top three I´ll eat my hat! :D

Thank you so much. I have been on the fence if I went to subtle or or not exciting enough.

I would love to be in the top 3 but I will be happy if I place at all. This is the first piece I have done that I am really happy with and love illustrating the story for. I am debating on tightening it a bit more, what would your recommend to take it that last 5%?

Hi, someone has uploaded your drawing to different websites with your sign erased from it. Here's a link [link] where you can find several drawings (included mine) modified and erased by the same mother****er. I know that the one who uploads it is allgamesbeta.com. I know it because he has done the same with other drawings of mine. I can't contact him because the website has no contact info. I thought you would like to know it.
