I am too lazy at the moment, to fly cheat into Legend (Peru) and get some more pics

Maybe someone else feels up to the challenge or can find a better picture

I did a google search, and this is the best I could find, pity its not a very good picture.......

Wait, thats her in black? Wow so random! Never heard about this haha I wonder who, why, or how she got there.

Here's a video of the buried Lara model in the flashback level.



It's possible to extract it with a little work, here's a picture of it. Dunno whose picture it is.

I like the model, but that braid/ponytail looks kinda weird.

I guess those models were put there in some of the early testing phases. Before they made Legend Lara we all know and love they made many hybrid models that were somewhere between AOD and Legend Lara. Probably also many hybrid models of younger 20ish year old Lara. Maybe this was for comparison between their final model of younger Lara and others. Or maybe that model was meant to be used in a cutscene, or even as a vindictive easter egg of dead and buried "emo" Lara.

It kinda looks like the sting of a scorpion, only longer.

It does, actually. Its shape looks a bit unnatural, and not very akin to how a braid would look in real life, assuming it is indeed a braid.

Interesting! So, there are no textures for this model left on the game data? It would be cool to edit the model and ultimately make it playable or at least convert it to XNA, but I understand it would be quite an ordeal.

Depends if its an actual character model or more like a in-game Statue, I'd imagine.

For all we know Lara was in early testing a static "Statue" in the main menu and this is something left over from that.

The art style they had going for that AOD Lara mesh is so stylish, would have looked awesome in the real game. Her butt and thighs look a lot more like classic Lara too, but the final Legend Lara was stretched to about 6'5" with skinny thighs. They looked at magazines for inspiration, I think they wanted her to look like a model.
