A Tomb Raider illustration

I had some time between projects and had an urge to do a new photoshop painting. Just for kicks, I thought I’d use a photo I took of a Lara Croft cosplay as reference.

The girl in cosplay was gorgeous indeed, but my approach to the illustration was to give her more of a pinup look, complete with scars and the Legend costume instead. I didn’t get the young ladies name when I got the shot during the 2008 San Diego ComicCon, but I should thank her (who ever she is) for being so gracious to pose for me. So, thank you!

Here’s the progression and final image.
