Well, finally, after a creative process full of ups and downs I show my latest drawing.

In relation to a recent thread on tutorials by Lara_Zoz2006 (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=178767) to draw and sketch :), I show too which have basically been my steps to get this picture.

As you see, my work is so random and unexpected as ever. :D

Here the video showing the process:

This is so cool!!!! It reminds me of those jungle paintings by Gauguin, with the vibrant colours and stylized body! :D

Also, the video is great, you're like me - when I paint with Photoshop I keep changing the image's size :D

Suggestion: if you can, get Corel Painter. It's so much better than Photoshop for this particular style (more like "oil painting"). :)

Excellent. I also saw the moonlight in the black night branches and the red Tomb Raider logo...looks fantastic.

I also like the shadows on her body...makes one feel she's in a jungle.

That's a wonderful painting! Her face is very nicely done! :) I love the green and that she's carrying a bow :D

Ah, I was very influenced by @Peanut drawings on Cezanne painting.:D

I do not always happen the matter of proportion, but these digital programs allow to expand your imagination as much as you want. If no parts of a preconceived idea you can be carried away by emotions and just painting the Sistine Chapel. :cln::D

I've heard several times that on Corel. I think I have an old freeware program that I got with a magazine.
I'll look to see if I can install Windows Vista.:)

Thanks a lot Encore :hug:

Yes, the idea of the moon seemed very attractive:), but it was an afterthought. and did not fit well in the final result.
Maybe use it in another drawing.;)

I see you also unanimously adjective "stylish". Must be by her neck :D. I like always very much women with very long necks. :)

Thank you all for your nice comments. :hug:

Amazing, the rare piece of fan-art that transcends "good", "excellent", even "remarkable" - and breaks into the realm of fine art. Superlative achievment, Tampi.

You know, this makes me so excited for the flow of fan art inspired by the new Lara, and cosplays too!:D

It's going to be so exciting, I love this piece, it's so well done and the colours as usual are just eye popping.

:vlol: You made me laugh really.
Your comment is like one of those phrases that accompany the films in its promotions.
It's fantastic! :D:hug:

Yes, right?:)
I've thought about it.
Little by little, will appear drawings that portray in a better way the spirit of the new Lara. :cool:

Thanks a lot, Aphrodite22, Afonya and EscondeR :hug:
No big deal.:o:)

You're welcome, Tampi! Yes, I've been writing lots of film reviews lately, for a magazine. I'm glad you like my comment - that is a great piece.
