This is so sweet!

Kinda reminds me of that one 2013 render where that Lara also looked like an actual Lara too

ONE OF MY fave renders. Hair is atrocitÚs but her body, and face make up for it.

I seriously don't know what the hell she's been doing with her hair for the past six years.

Is it too go with the "I work at a bar and live in an apartment instead of Croft Manor" aesthetic?

If so... Disgusting.

The original Jungle always intrigues me very much. I can't believe no one remade this on TRLE, but a new TR2 remake comes like every other week. If I see another TR2 remake, i'm finna cut a bitch.

So yesterday I was watching The Dark Knight with my boyfriend then proceeded to watch Suicide Squad and I kept thinking... Heath Ledger's Joker is what CD was trying to do with Reboot Lara but we ended up getting Jared Leto's.

Both HL's Joker and RLara were aiming for a more realistic, mature and modern version of the character, but only one of them actually succeeded.

Honestly if you take out Rise and Shadow and pretend they never existed, the reboot would be an incredible take on the origins of Lara Croft IMO.
It's turned into a coping mechanism for me, where I just pretend that Rise and Shadow are non-canon pieces of fanfiction

LOL! Interesting analogy but no way is Reboot Lara as bad as Jared Leto's Joker

I'd probably compare her to Henry Cavill's Superman. A character that wasn't necessarily bad, but just came across as boring and melodramatic.

Indeed, it's a huge shame. I'll never get over the wasted potential after 2013.

Lara during the last quarter of the game is the only time I feel like they achieved what they were trying to do with the character.

I dunno, I think superman is the most boring and vanilla character that ever existed anyway so I can neither agree nor disagree

But yeah, while I feel like RLara is not a bad character on her own, I think she falls flat when you consider the one she replaced. Instead of updating and making her less over the top, they just removed 70% of her personality and called it a day.
