I did something like this a while back with Lara's pool room and thought I'd apply some beautification to other scenes from Tomb Raider games. Gives me an excuse to get a bit creative and put my playthrough screenshots to use. Bear in mind I only have Paint.net atm so can't use any fancy tools for the time being.

Anytime I edit some screenshots like this, I'll post 'em here.

I had it colour edited with gradients, motion and gaussian blurring for heat effect and level/curves adjustments which resulted in this...

Ok, this one is a work in progress.

I'm not that experienced with with colouring on any editing program but I wanted to try and make Lara's model look better by filling it in and smoothing it out a little bit. So far, I've focussed mostly on her arms and legs.

Nice stuff, Reggie! :tmb: It's awesome what a different a bit of proper light will do to a picture. It really changes the mood.

The canyon picture looks far more realistic (as much as low polys can :p) with the bright colors because that's how the canyons look. Their not all dull and colorless. Great job! :tmb:
