It does look like they nerfed her butt in that skin and I'm wondering if it's to compensate for her showing some "scandalous" midriff or something



(btw where is her scar from 2013?)

I don't care much though as I don't own the skin and probably never will.

I am quite certain the word "asexual" doesn't mean what you think it does.

It technically doesn't even mean what people commonly use it to mean so we're way off base with that already

If that is a manface, then men are very feminine looking wherever you live... :/

It's not that she has a manface, it's just the fact that she's ugly looking and has nothing to do with Lara Croft.

Here is the woman that y'all are claiming has a "man face" honestly, y'all are beyond rude. She is beautiful and has a really wonderful personality in real life. She's very comical, Goofy, and fun. I've seen her once at a convention and she is like the nicest person. So ****en rude to say that about her.

I do think she has quite a strong, androgynous face but that doesn't necessarily mean someone is "ugly". She is quite striking actually, I love her hair and she has very piercing eyes.

However while it was unnecessarily strongly worded and mean-spirited, I do see where they were getting at with that post on the last page. They really dulled her looks down on that character model with those dowdy outfits and hairstyle. That is quite a common trend with female video game characters these days. Make them look as generically nondescript and basic as possible. Baggy, boxy, grey androgynous outfits at all times.

wild speculation:

The fitness outfit was supposed to be part of a prequel chapter, before she went from slim Rise Lara to Instagram Booty Lara, ready for Shadow.

as for the sexualization part of the argument....
Straight boi and illustrator in training here:

first of all, if they wanted to tune down her femininity, the default model wouldn't have seen the light of the day.
Her ass casts a shadow for god's sake!

and yes, we've seen manly looking female faces as of late (I would say HZD, ME:A and AC:Od. No, Control is not one of them, yes the oufits are boring even for a workplace context, that's all), but I think that's because some companies are trying to figure out what the female and not straight audience might be willing to embrace but most importantly REJECT in a playable character. And if you ask me, they're doing it wrong.
To initiate blatant preemptive defensive tacticts, or to assume your audience might consider playing your game for the wrong or unintented reasons is not the most genuine way to go about it. This kind of mindset is just one step away from artistic compromise.

Give the context top priority, give your character a profile, follow that to give it the face and body you want (because, I mean, you're a game developer, not a movie director: you don't need to find the actor , you have to power to literally make you characters look exactly the way you want!) and who cares about what others think. Do you or do you not have a vision?
