Several of you requested that a future contest not be random since all of them to date have been. With the prize valued at $250 I think it's fair to have to work a little harder ;) No official contest lately has been this big so I'm very excited! :D

Hey guys, please remember your submission has to depict a scene that already exists. Fan fiction in this case would not count unless you're depicting something that happened already. Let me know if anyone has questions :)

This is what I meant when I said this:

Would this count, or is it plagiarism?

Katie_Tomb_Raider
17-12-10, 20:06
@Rai: Definitely that would count. It's not plagiarism because there aren't any works in existence :)

Rai
17-12-10, 20:07
Alrighty then. Thanks for clarifying :)

Katie_Tomb_Raider
17-12-10, 20:09

18-12-10, 14:34
Great! And just a quick comment, I've been getting a few questions so I'll clarify something here. Your piece has to depict a scene from one of the games or my stories = it has to exist. So a fan fiction continuation of AOD wouldn't count in this contest. Has to be a scene that already exists! :)

Anymore questions? Let me know :)

Question: Does it have to depict only ONE scene from ONE game? Can't we do more than one scene? It's still in the same entry, just like a collage I'd say.

Katie_Tomb_Raider
22-12-10, 20:34
I love a collage idea but for this contest please only do one scene from one game. Tough decision, I know ;) If you're having trouble I've been suggesting to pick your favourite game, and try to narrow down your favourite level.

So many choices... good luck! :)

Fantastic! Stella and I are very excited. I appreciate all the e-mails/PM's about the contest; you guys are awesome.

Katie, what happens if two or more people choose the same scene? Is that okay?

Absolutely that's ok :) We could have 50 people do the same scene and we'd have 50 unique entries ;) Pick whichever you like!

Katie, I have a question. What exactly constitutes a scene? Is more towards what only one photograph could capture, or would an entire cut-scene still be considered one scene?

I'm really interested in the contest, but I want to make sure that my idea will yield an eligible entry. :)

More towards what a photograph could capture. Some cut-scenes are very lengthly, so a particular moment in a cut-scene would be fine. So long as you're depicting that moment in some way it'll be fine. If it's still unclear let me know :) You're in the clear so long as you don't do multiple scenes or multiple games. One scene, from one game or story :)

Katie_Tomb_Raider
23-12-10, 16:53
I should also add that if you're doing something other than a drawing/painting it can be harder to depict a particular moment, so take the just of the scene and depict what you can. I know a few of you are doing this so please let me know if you have questions :)

BTW this statue is sold-out! :cln: The only one they have left is the one with the drawing now!

Katie_Tomb_Raider
23-12-10, 18:04
I've had a few more questions about entries that are animations/movies/etc and I wanted to clarify a few more things here.

You cannot do an animation/movie on the entire game or story. It has to be a scene, so a small section only. If you're doing an illustration/constructing something it should still relay the scene.

Don't be worrying too much so long as you're remembering one scene (or part, maybe "part" or "moment" will help you better) from one game or one story.

If you still have concerns let me know :) So excited to hear everyone's hard at work! I know they'll all be fantastic.

Not sure about that. :p The idea probably matters the most, and there are a lot of uber talented people here. :D

It will be fun, though. Haven't done a Lara Croft fan piece in a little while. :) I'm really hoping my idea turns out how I envision it. Should be a pretty recognizable memory if it does. :p

You say that one of the criterias is going to be "holding true to the Tomb Raider theme". Could you elaborate on that? For example, if I pick a moment from one of the urban parts of AoD will that mean it's not "holding true to the Tomb Raider theme"?

So long as you're not deviating from what happened in the game, that's holding true to it. Not making up extras, sticking to what happened in the game. :) Capturing that exact moment/scene and re-creating it.

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU o.o

I was going to do Midas' hand. >.>

It was going to be LC walking up to the hand KNOWING she would die and being like "dude I'm ready" then smile and turn to gold. Then the camera would pan over her backpack showing items coming out like her pistols, Thor's hammer, Excalibur, Scion, then finally her notebook, and it would flip pages and land on a blank one. THEN the screen would go black and after that the intense tr9 podcast music would start and we would see the journal again, and the blank page would turn to a picture of a mysterious boat on stormy seas.

Clearly that idea drifted a little far away from the innitial goal of this competition sooo....:/

Okay, well, here is something I did because I just couldn't forgo the opportunity to win completely :p It's too good of a prize not to try!

A short bit of writing, recreating the moment in Tomb Raider Legend, when Lara arrives in Japan to speak with Nishimura.

I've never written any Tomb Raider fiction before, so it was a little strange. I did the best I could, even though this isn't the kind of thing I usually write. I'm pretty happy with it :) It's only short, but I thought the shorter the better. If I wanted to compete at all with all the art work I had to keep it brief!

Most of the light came from the four large, translucent panels that extended up towards the ceiling, casting their pale glow about the room—a green tinted bloom pressed against the dark windows—and what was left of the place was lit by the several little bulbs hung on the walls: perhaps four, in total. Maybe they would explode, with a bullet.

It was enough, in this light, to squint from the top of the stairs and glance down to the bar, just across from which there stood, bare arms inclined at the waist, hair held up in fancy up-dos, white and gold dressed women stood before their cautious male partners, dappled with flitting spotlights, not quite pleased to be there.

“Lara. Got a call from Nishimura.” Zip, through her earpiece. “He's in his office, so he won't be mingling. The bartender will hook you up with him, though.”

“Ever predictable.”

Lara descended the stairs and began towards the elderly man stood serving drinks, passing as she did a blonde woman who pursed her shiny red mouth in her direction, before turning away, and looking—with a kind of lost, confused expression—at the darkness of the retreating corridor to the left into which her fading interest graded.

“Good evening. I believe Nishimura-san is expecting me.” Lara said, at the bar.

The man looked up, away from the shiny wine glass in his hand.

“Ah, Lady Croft.” He placed the glass with the others by his side. “He is in his office down the hall. I will let him know you are coming.”

“Thank you.”

The man did not move; she assumed he would use some kind of telephone to contact Nishimura before she entered. And, so as not to arrive too early in his office, she turned around and took a quick look around the relatively tame party. Lots of television screens; held to the walls on thin metal frames; they would probably fall without too much convincing. Two corridors, one to the left, and another to the right: both would contain the full blast radius of a hand grenade and funnel the explosion backwards quite a distance. The bar was long: accessible from both ends. Easy cover. To its left, near a plush seating area, stood the woman from before: her hair pared neatly at the sides, where a man had pushed a stray flower through the band of her headdress—probably gathered from the vase next to the pyramid of wine glasses in which stood a bunch of mostly pink roses, gilded with light from a nearby plasma screen so they appeared tinged with blue and sometimes yellow, but were always looking slightly out of place. A thorn stuck out near the crest of the stray flower's bud, Lara noticed, as the odd lady looked at her again. She felt uneasy, and so headed off down the corridor to which the barman had directed her.

Through her handbag, she fingered the but of a pistol. She thought there might be a confrontation, later. It never paid to arrive at a party empty handed. Though, she wouldn't find a use for the phrase until a little later.

Hope it fits the criteria! :)

How to Enter

All of you are incredibly creative; I've seen what you can do! I want you to depict a scene from either one of the Tomb Raider games, or one of my stories. You can draw/paint a picture, write a song, act it out, create something; anything.

Does anyone know if Leglion is still entering? He was making a cool-looking remake of the T-Rex scene from TRA in blender as an entry.

All of the entries that I've uploaded have been improved. The only 'rule' for this contest was that it had to showcase a scene from one of the games/my stories. I didn't want to restrict anyone creatively, not to mention you're all talented in different ways :)

Just wondering. How are you going to be checking for plagiarism? I'm not saying anyone here would cheat, but you never know. :o

This is going to be my entry if I think it's good enough to enter. :( I guess I sorta ran out of time. I haven't chosen a particular scene but to me Tomb Raider screams Egypt and mummies, So what better than to have Lara pumping some lead into one whilst picking up the Ankh in TR1?

Unfortunately not a whole lot we can do, as in any contest, but I'm not worrying about what I've seen entered so far. Mostly links to the work have been on personal DeviantArt pages :)

What are you going to be doing to choose the winner? Several rounds, Like you take a set amount you like, then you take a few less, and so on?

It talks about Werners Death, and when Kurtis disappers.
For better orientation I included time lines before to show what is related to what.In the link you can see the video on youtube which is compatible to my time lines :)

[1.38] where are we?

I learnt the hard way: mis-pronouncing it in public :p Of course, it might be pronounced George. Only the man himself knows :p

Hi! I am Jorge, the 2nd runner up. To clarify, since I am not from any latin country (I'm from Portugal), it's not pronouned "Hor-hay". You have to say the "J" as "G" but you must not pronounce the first "e" as on "George". But it's ok to mis-pronounce it, I don't mind :)
