I've been on a bit of a TOMB RAIDER binge recently, having bought 'Legand', 'Anniversary' & 'Underworld' on one disc. I'm loving it but I think the wife is getting a bit fed up of it. Te He!
I was brousing through DA & found many amazing Lara Croft cosplayers, which inspired me to do a drawing but I wanted to draw her reasonable realistic and with so many pictures of Ms. Croft, it was hard to choose the right pose. Then I came accross JenCroft -[link]
. She is really dedicated to showing us just how badass Lara can be with some real gritty photos.
Having seen this picture -[link]
amongst the many brilliant works in her gallery, I knew this is what I wanted to draw.
Thank you JenCroft for allowing me to use this as a reference for my drawing & Adam Jay of Superhero Photography -[link]
for taking the original photo.
Drawn with a full range of graphite pencils, blending stumps & cotton buds. It took nearly three weeks to complete on A3 cartridge paper.
