She looks so prepared and determined to find the dagger

It's similar to TR3's model but she doesn't really have any action moments like that to compare. Lara's TR2+3 in-game model is really pretty too

Every change made to 'improve' her TRLR and TRC model was awful, in-game and out!
Yeah I've noticed that some of the early TR2 promo artwork used her top from the first game.

TR2 FMV or TR3 FMV. I also think she looks beautiful on the TR1 menu.

She's hideous in TR4/5, she looks like an alien.

I can't tell which one's my favorite, but I can definitely agree that she looks odd, to say the least in Tomb Raider 4 and 5. They could have done so much better with the technology they had at the time.

I love them all, but my favorite is tan TR2 FMV Lara.

"Its hard to say, exactly...." XP

In-game TR2 and 3 Lara.. her face and hair were lovely.
TR4 and 5 got rid of the hair scrunchy, her vest was too low etc

She CAN look pretty though, through fan modded outfits to give her different clothes (TR1/2 style and colours) and she looks amazing.

Never liked TR1 in game's face.
Luckily I made a TR2 head with the bun for her and she looks nicer than ever

Definitely Tomb Raider III for me. Her looks are so convincing, even for a non-existent character

That TR2 render is the exact one I think of when anyone says the name "Lara Croft" to me.

I will say TR2's Lara, although I like both the TR1 and TR3 just as much, she has something of a classic beauty about her, whilst being fierce. I never liked the model for TRLR and TRC, both FMV and in-game; although the render on OP's post for the former is probably one of her best shots.

I'm a big fan of the TR3 model. I loved the in-game model and the one from the renders.
I simply adored the TR3 artworks - especially this one:

I always thought it was weird how she had that belly button ring in that render (It would suck if it got caught on something), or how she has her Browning Hi-Powers in her hands....while there's also a pair in her holsters.
