Sorry my dude, but the original looks better. You kind of sucked all of the personality out of her face.

So glad Phillip Sevyís coming back. I love his more stylized drawings over the current WikiHow style.

I don't like Lara's face on that cover, but, yeah, E.Carnby went too far the other way and his version has no expression. Sorry .

Maybe it is the cartoony style, but it's a bit ott, Imo. As I said before, I liked the other covers from this artist.

I had to look up, yeah she did the covers for the first 3 Survivor's Cruzade books. They are in completely different art styles I thought it was from a different artist! Weird, the art style in those covers fit Tomb Raider so much better than the new more cartoony one. I have to retreat my position a bit, I do blame the artist a bit now!

Once again, I tried reworked Lara's face. Now it is more serious.

The artist which creates the cover page for Inferno arc have problem, Lara does not look like Lara! It's bad caricature for me. Big chin, head shape, eye size, eyebrow and more. Original is better, yes but it is about Lara face. If you think that original face looks better (altrough my reworked face is not caricature but it is Lara), then I say to myself? This is the reason why come this ugly caricature as title page for Inferno. This is not Lara Croft, this is not Tomb Raider but Tomb Raider comics readers are satisfied. Sad.

Who said we're satisfied? Not all of us are. You're new version is definitely better. I'm not sure if you're going for reboot Lara or classic here, but aesthetically, yes it is more pleasing to me than the caricature on the original, which makes her look like a (bad) cartoon villain.

I'm just glad I have an idea of Philip Sevy's work, so know the inside art will be better.

Seriously, it's just a cover, I don't care. The interiors will look much better now that Phillip Sevi is back. And that is what actually matters

Derlis Santacruz and Philip Sevy were the only good artists in the reboot comic runs IMO. Luckily, their art is the most used.
