Lara Croft - A Survivor Reborn by emiliestabell Lara Croft - A Survivor Reborn by emiliestabell
After multiple people have told me to make a background for my earlier entry, I decided to do so. I'm actually really happy with the result, and want to thank everybody who adviced me to do this! There is still a few things that could have been better, but I reached a point where I decided to call it done. I hope you guys like it. Feel free to comment! Cheers

Photoshop, CS6, 2013

Its really well done, but I just think you made Lara look too heroic and confident when that's not how she is in the game.

(just my opinion)

Yes! You are very right! I made this before I played the game, and she's definitely a lot more scared and insecure than I portayed her.

I love everything except the ice pick is a bit to bright, it draws the attention away from Lara, and it's hard to look away from, and just takes away from the overall awesomeness of the rest of the picture.

You're welcome! Thank you for not taking my critique in a poor manner, a lot of other deviants seem to, when I'm just trying to be helpful. You're very nice!

What? Oh they shouldn't.. useful critigue is a tool that the artist is given to improve his/her work. They should be grateful instead of taking it the wrong way. I for one appreciate your honesty about my work. ^^

They should, but then there are the other random people that tell me my critiques are 'rude' and I would be upset if someone told me the same thing about my work. I really don't see how I'm being rude, and I've never taken a real critique to be hurtful, I like learning from other peoples points of view, because I might not notice the flaws, and I want them pointed out. But that's me, I'm glad that someone else shares my feelings.

Well.. many people get really attached to their work, and therefore, take critisism as a personal attack. Consequently, it's really important to adapt your critique to the person you give it to, which can be hard. Especially when you already have learned to understand critique as a useful thing yourself. That said, I completely agree with you, seeing things from other people's point of view is critical if you want to be a good artist, so keep doing what you're doing. We need more people like you on art networks like this!

From what I've seen, only about 5 are worthy of competing, the rest are just asset rips and uhh.. drawings

on all the other contestans entries theres always something that could be done better (including my entry). But this one is different, totally polished with amazing background. Makes me jealous that I dont have a graphic tablet yet...

I hope you win - because this is by far the most impacting, authentic entry I have seen so far.

God how I would love to have my cintiq and work on something like this forever ;)

wow! thank you so much for your lovely feedback! and yes, it makes a huge difference to have a tablet. It's basically impossible to draw digitally otherwise. It would rock my world to win, but there's still a month left of the competition, so I don't think i will.

I would love a cintiq too! Right now I have a Wacom Intuos5 Touch M, and it's really good. No complaints.

I'm so glad you like my work, thanks again! :D

you re welcome :) - I dont think it really matter if there is still a month left if I was a Judge you would definitely be within the top 3. Also you left enough space open for the Publishers to add their own Logos and the Title of the game, making it a great Print template.

Yeah thought about getting an intuos aswell, but Im just going to start big with the expensive cintiq :)

Well, if you're right I'll give you a virtual kiss! It could be so awesome :D fingers crossed!

You can right as well start big. That way you'll save a lot of money when you already know that a cintiq is your thing ;)
