was playing tomb raider II yesterday and picked up a key that was called a 'Rusty key' which can only open the rusty lock XD...I just thought that was kinda stupid
So this started off as some meaningless sketch which I then based on the Tomb raider 1 style clothes (with Legend style hair, which i tend to just draw out of habit now) and a more realistic approach to her figure (seriously, she is so unaturally thin in TR1, even for anime XD).
I tried to get the effect with the lighting as if a door in front of her was just opening and the yellow fire light was shining through, but I'm not sure if that worked or not...
I also went a bit crazy with the textures in the background (coughlazinesscoughcough) which I got from this site
oh and if anyone knows about the 10th anniversary (remake of TR1) edition that, in theory, should be coming out in November (her 10th anniversary), I found out that it's coming out sometime next year :[
