This is a drawing of Marin Steele from the amazingly entertaining game Advent Rising. I just got bored and drew her one day, since I can never seem to get Lara right.

This was the result...

I know the hands are too little, and I really stink at drawing feet, but other than that, any suggestions? I think it's too cartoony, too...

Thankies http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I think you did a great job Soma. I find this drawing very pretty. I especially like the dress and the hands(the way she's holding the gun) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

This looks great! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
One thing I noticed is when you're shading using pencils you should try to keep a distance between the sheet and your hand in order not to smear the graphite.

Very nice job Soma! I love her stance, and the way the dress is torn gives great detail. Nice job shading too! I guess you like Advent Rising then? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Thanks everyone, I feel better about my drawing skills now, and I drew this pic of Lara today that has to be the best I've EVER drawn! Inspiration hehe! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

But the character I drew from Advent actually wears that dress at the end of the game, and she doesn't just have guns, but she can shoot fire out of her hands too!! ;) You all should definately check the game out if you have an Xbox. PC version is cool, but Xbox is the best!!
