A Legend Is Born by TixieLix A Legend Is Born by TixieLix
My entry for the Tomb Raider Reborn Contest. The title is a play on the official tagline "A Survivor Is Born," which I used as my concept for this drawing. Really, Lara has become so iconic over the years that she is truly a legend...

The story of the game is how Lara transforms from a frighten young woman into a fierce fighter and survivor. I used a cave and water setting as that could be plausible for a scene from the game, and also because caves and deep water are traditionally symbolic of death, rebirth and self discovery.

Upon watching the trailer, the game seemed to have a gritty, edgy sort of feel to it. I tried to convey/interpret this with rough linework, detailing and colouring methods that departs a bit from my norm. I could have played it safe, but I thought it was in the spirit of the competition to push my comfort zone ;)

Wow! This looks amazing, definitely captures the essense of what it's about! I hope you win! From what I played (and watched via "Clueless Gamer") of the game it's definitely safe to say it has a gritty edgy feel to it. Awesome job! :D
