Lara-Stand-Alone by avalonfilth Lara-Stand-Alone by avalonfilth
I was thinking a lot, what to say about this entry.. but i found the name will express all i want to say, Lara Stand Alone.
i spent tow days trying to make the perfect background.. i think this one will work, right?

This is one of the best Lara images I've seen in a long time.
Well done.

I'm sure alot of people need to unfortunately. I think with alot of these it will be coming down to who has the most original concept with the most creativity while still keeping it within the guidelines they mentioned. I'm sure you'll get a spot up there in the winners circle though. :3 Not sure where just yet, but will keep fingers crossed for good luck none the less! :heart:

hope you're right about that, i can't say i did my best for this one because i'm still thinking and trying to find other ideas.
i feel like i can do more for Lara Croft. maybe that's why i did a lot of entries. thanks for your feedback bro.

We don't always have to put in our best to make something look good. Sometimes it just takes effort. And there again, some people who put their best into something put too much effort and end up ruining the picture. :3 As this is not the case on yours, don't down yourself on this piece too much. You never know, it could be the winner. ^_^

Yes, you're right.. and it's happening to me a lot, sometimes i feel like i can do much better but the others says it's enough, you did it right thing. i think it's not about self confidence, it's just about your passion to do more and feeling that
you're better then that.
i don't know exactly what to do about it.. i just keep looking on my pieces after finishing it for a few hours and finding that there's much to do with it. not sure really. anyway, it's good discussion :-)

It is a good discussion. :3 I always look back on mine too and think, "Maybe I should have done more or fixed this...blahblahblah" But then I think, "This looks awesome anyway. If I tried to make it look better, I'd mess up what great art I've already created." It's all about what you yourself like to do. I like to think, you know, if I like it, I'll do it. If I don't, I won't bother. If others tend to like it as well, that's a bonus. :3

It's great to see other artists perspective taken on a character. You did a really good job in your own style! She has that strong look of determination on her face. A good comic type style to this. I do have a few suggestions if you would like to hear them. My first is perhaps a little more variation of dirt or blood hue to the scuff and scratches on her arms? Just a touch more color may do. Another possibly is don't be afraid to add color to shadows, or even cool them down with a blue, or you could do them with a warm color. Just some ideas. Overall this is wonderful!

thanks for all your suggestions and ideas, it's really cool to read this.
i think that the background is not taking a lot of space to allow me to add more colors or shadows.. i did it with the light beam in the back just to add some variations for the colors and lights.. the focus point for me was the character, they need to see her in her best form and details.
i understand all your ideas, but i think the atmosphere and the mode for this one will not allow me to add any extra touches. but will not stop me to rethink about this, i'll try to look for it with a different eye and see what i can do. or maybe do nothing.

many thanks for your ideas :-)

You did a terrific good job I really like it, played all the previous games and I have to say you def caught tomb raider. I like the background aswell tho i would have liked to see bit more detail there cause thats an importaint part of it. Great job tho! :)

the background has a fair amount of details and after all you need 70% from the attention to go to the main character, i think this is what they looking for from the artworks in this contest. hope it's works :-)

Awesome man! You came back! I must say this is your best entry that meets contest requirements. Altough I liked all your entries, e specially the second one I didn't thought it is representation of Lara they were looking for, because she seamed kinda hardcore. But in this one I think that you managed to capture everything, both Lara's strong spirit and hard situation she was into. She really looks like a survivor now. This one really has chance to win and I'm really glad you made this one. They will totally find it awesome. The bow is really a trademark for this reborn sequel. Good job!

it's all about trying to do your best and also trying to do what others expecting from you.
i think this is the real reason that makes me doing a lot of entries.. try to find the best shot :-)

I think the same myself :). Many times other peoples taste differs from ours, and we try many times for ourselves because we never know when we gave the best we can do ;)
