Lady Lara Croft by DerekRodenbeck Lady Lara Croft by DerekRodenbeck
Did this for the Tomb Raider contest here on DA. Figured I would give it a shot. They need to have more Tomb Raider comics again. What do you guys/gals think? I think YES! If you like this be sure to check out my other work, you can also find more work and news on my facebook page here [link]

I like the colors and her expression. One thing you should add is a quiver, the poor girl has no ammo. The bow string is on the wrong side of her left arm. Her right arm looks awkward to me, almost like it's broken and bent the wrong way. Do you have time to try bending it the other way? Maybe you could hide it behind her shoulder a bit more. Other than that I think it's a really strong entry it's nice to see her drawn in this style. I wish you Good luck in the competition my friend.
What do you think?

Laura.... with a bow...... Is she..... by any chance..... LAURA BOW?!!?!!

Okay, I'm just kidding around, I know this is Laura Croft of Tomb Radier........ seriously though there actually IS a character called LAURA BOW. (She starred in Colonel's Bequest & Dagger of Amon-Ra.)

On an even more serious note, this is EXCELLENT artwork and you did a great job.
Nice touch with the bowstring being on the inside side of her arm.... like she's ready to raise and fire it.

Those games are kinda old now... and most people have forgotten them.
Nonetheless they're great fun to play!

Did you use digital art or is this a painting?

Either way it is GREAT.
It reminds me a lot of the Cavewoman Comic books.

Yeah, I actually dont play too many video games, for the most part im drawing or reading something. I did color it digital, the rest was done with a brush and a nib. Thank you though, the cavewoman books were great

these is great..but judging by the choice of the semifinalist i think they were after different type of style.

Yes I would have to agree, but that's ok I still wanted to draw her. $$ would have helped though lol.

My favorite part of this whole picture is her hair. I just love how its slicked back and the slight shading at the top.

Great angle and sense of direction made with the bow and the strokes, I almost feel like I'm on the ground ready to plead for mercy :lol:
Plus, the composition is technically well thought out :nod:
