Tomb Raider: Reborn by HoustonSharp Tomb Raider: Reborn by HoustonSharp
Here's my entry for the Tomb Raider Reborn contest! I saw a lot of people depicting Lara after her transformation into a total badass, and decided that I wanted to instead show the actual turning point where Lara goes from being a young woman to a survivor.

Hope you guys like it, and good luck in the contest to all that entered. I've seen some pretty awesome entries so far.

Don't forget to join me on facebook! It's always a pleasure to meet new people: [link]

really nice, like it a lot, we had the same idea, but hey!! your rendering is much better than mine, ([link]), and maybe your interpretation!! depicting the after moment instead of the actual moment, really nice work!!!

Oh wow! Nice take, Houston! I agree it was a very cool move to depict the point of transformation instead of the "standing in front of a burning building with a pile of dead wolves" Lara! hah hah.

Best of luck to you in the contest!!! :clap:

I really like the way you incorporated a story and a personal reaction into this :) This really shows the Tomb Raider Reborn idea/feel, I think; it's not just a "look, Lara is awesome, but still sad"-drawing. really well done

That classical approach is unREAL!!!
I always marvel at an artist who can spend such along time rendering an image like this; in so much as time and care of perhaps months to capture a second of life...

TOP-f**king-hole mate!! xx
