Ms. Croft by Bungle0 Ms. Croft by Bungle0
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.

Nicely done. It's shot slike this that remind me of the similarities between Lara and Revy (from 'Black Lagoon'). Although not necessarily in attitude.

Gosh dangit that is some good shading! And I really like how you made her body look normal instead of overly thin with overly large breasts :) xx

I was always wondering does such drawings are made on gray paper and the highlights were achieved by some strange technique, but now I see it's just usage of pencil. Great usage.
You have skills. :D

I love the detailing you created in the fabrics, made it look real. Then the highlights really brought out the picture since the majority is dark :) Really well done :heart:
