Oh dear! What have they done here.
Shame as there have been so many great looking comic sketches of Lara.

Ummm... It's obvious that someone misunderstood. Lara is not a body-builder...

If Lara was real she'd probably look like that, lol.

In any event, that gun in holster didn't leave the white patch. It's the wrong way round. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

As soon as I seen the eyes I thought... 'Frank Cho'! And then I seen the box to the left. Sure enough. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif He's very good at drawing bodies. You should see some of his other art. If that doesn't suit your tastes then maybe this will. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif

I think the beef that most of you have is how he drew the face, especially the eyebrows and the angle the face is viewed from. I'm guessing he must be capturing the 'TOUGHNESS' that Lara would have if she were real. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif Once you see other works of Frank Cho you won't be so quick to dismiss this master of artists. :cool:

edit: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/vlol.gif Looks like Lara forgot to take off her gun holster while tanning herself. I just noticed. :rolleyes: That's Cho's sense of humor for ya. :D

edit2: That explains the look on Lara's face. Brilliant! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

That's what you were getting at http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif ).

But if some of you actually think that Lara is bad (can't appreciate the tallent behind it) then take a gander at this. Here is where you people need to focus your disgust. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/vlol.gif (The "Lara" cos'player)

When it said "Return of the Queen"... it didn't mean it like that 'people. :rolleyes:

And if you think she looks manly because of the muscles... that's Frank Cho's style. He draws very voluptuous ladies. Wouldn't Lara have to almost be that athletic to do the stuff she does? Sprinting, climbing, doing handstands... I could go on and on. This interpretation may not suite everyones idea of Lara Croft. But IMhO it gets it pretty dead on. ;)

She is a little too butch looking, Lara has more of a gymnast type of figure not a body builders figure, she's lean not bulky.

It's a nice drawing though, even though the body is a bit much I think the face is horrible, she isnt very attractive face wise.

This is Laras little known of brother, LAwRAnce Croft who is obvously part way through a sex change. Easy mistake to make.

Things that make you go....buhuhuhuh!

The body isn't as bad as the face. She looks like John Cusack! They should replace that face with this: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif -it's cuter!

Plus, the boobs are too big for Lara now. (God it feels so good to be able to say that!)

Plus, Lara is pale, no tan lines there!! Bikini or no!

Just proof that they aren't expecting the readers to look at the face... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif Piggies!!
