Next week I'll have some spare time and I'd like to spend it drawing. However, I haven't had a good idea yet.

So, if you've just been struck by a fantastic thought (congrats! :D ), post it here! I'll choose my favorite and turn it into a personalized drawing (which means at least the winner's name and - if possible - avatar will be worked into it).

The competition will be open 'til at least Sunday, depending on the number of replies.

Something from Legend will be great. Some location, like a temple.

Weeeeeell, I'm writing about the Croft family past, present and future in the 'Bloodlines' stories so why don't you try drawing a past/future Lara?

Present is unnecessary cos we have so much of that already but the other two offer endless possibilities.

I see a 'past' Lara in the classic British explorers outfit, Pith helmet, machete, old fasioned rifle and all that stuff. Or you could do a Silent Storm style WW2 commando Lara, complete with beret, camo paint and a sten gun.

(I'll update with a screen shot of what I mean later, unfortunately my PC crashes when ever I try to use the 'edit' function)

A 'Future' Lara offers even more creativity. Personally I would love to see Lara with two big bolt pistols, they just look so cool.

Hey, you could even do crossovers. Draw a nightelf Lara from Warcraft!

Heres an idea, Lara exploring the inside of a temple and she comes to a beautiful scene. The room has several holes in the ceiling letting in rays of light. There are tones of jungle flowers cascadeing done the stone walls and some spots with little streams of water comeing down too.

Does anybody object to...Nope.

About Lara and action > that would be cool to see her in action > something is blowing up and Lara is doing a side jump while shooting (location: Africa/temple ruins) ...just an idea.

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif That would be nice, but it has been done in Tomb Raider #50 (comic book).
