Lara Croft by SquirrelShaver Lara Croft by SquirrelShaver
This is a piece I finished a few weeks ago for a friend. I've just been trying to work on placing more blacks in my work to add more over all depth and thought I'd share.

Nice blonde version of Lara....well, she has very different facial proportions(high cheeks, closer to Angelina) from the current bloodied Lara in the game...can't wait for the movie and see who's in it, I doubt it will be a blonde though...
Again your depict women beautifully.....

Very nice!
Who cares if it doesn't look like Lara? Most fan art is just the artist's interpretation anyway. :)

Looks amazing, though I'd have to agree that the face just doesn't quite look like Lara to me.

Hope you don't mind but I inked this. With the new game coming out I wanted to do up an ink of Lara :) Your lines are spectacular :)

As a hard core Tomb raider fan, i can say with utmost sincerity that she is NOT Lara Croft. Her hair is wrong, and her body proportions are slightly off. But on a scale of 1 to 5, i give you a solid 5 because... well... it is easily one of the best profile views of Croft that i have seen in quite some time. And i am only 17, which means that i am a real argumentative being naturally. seriously though, very well done.

how you can erase "structure" pencil, without ruining the main pencil mark? I thought that was drawn over in ink, pencil and then remove all superfluous to succeed (hope you'll understand my english....)
Thanks, amazing stuff

There's a few ways to erase the preliminary pencils so that your final pencils look clean. One way is to take a kneaded eraser (or "gummy" eraser) and lightly erase all of your structure pencils but leave a trace of them behind. Then you can do in and get nice clean likes with a darker pencil for your finished piece. :)

Hi there, I hope you don't mind but I did a coloring of this awesome piece, cause it is so cool to work with.

Here is a link to the work and hope you like it:

Thanks for having such awesome works. Of course after I colored this, I found an inked version, I guess that means I'll have to do another version using the inked one now. :-)

Keep up the great work!

I love how easy on the eyes looks Lara in your drawing. She isn't bad-proportioned or exaggerated. She looks very balanced. You made a great piece of art!
