Lara in Egypt by Horus-Goddess Lara in Egypt by Horus-Goddess
Cheezy title alert aaaghhh!! Sorry... I just can't think of good titles sometimes. xD


I sketched this before/during my Intro to Animation class off and on. :shrug: All I had with me was a ballpoint pen because I somehow forgot my pencil bag. D: So that's what I drew with. x3 It's fun though, trying to draw directly in pen without sketching. It's hard as heck but, it's a challenge and I like those. ;3

Tiz Lara Croft if no one could tell. I altered her holster belt thing just cuz I felt like it. And her guns were drawn by memory... I can't remember exactly what they look like in the new game. :shrug: Yep. I love Lara... I know a lot of people dislike her because she's such an iconic "babe" of gaming but.. I've always liked her ever since I was introduced to the games. Mostly because I wanted to be like her, and the fact I think I look a little like she does. Only with freckles and an imperfect nose. XD Oh well, can't always be perfect looking. One of these days I'll actually try working out or something... I'm just scared of doing that type of thing in front of other people.. I feel embarassed doing it even if it were only Kenny and me lol. So. eh? I've always wanted one of those freakin' Bowflex things. xD But there wouldn't be anywhere for it in a small apartment, much less would I have the money to afford one so. I guess it's either face my public recreation center fears or stay unfit. x3 Currently staying unfit but... I'm thin so... I guess it's not that bad.


Went off on a tangent. xD Anyhow. Yeah. Lara. She rocks. Always has in my opinion! Faithful fan right 'ere! *points at self* I even dressed up as her for Halloween a few times and a few people knew who I was lol. x3 Until my sister accidentally threw my khaki shorts into the whites when she did the wash... she bleached 'em and they turned a lilac color, how ever that works. XD

anyhow. I'll quit my fangirling over Lara now. She's just cool. I like 'er. I'm so glad Crystal Dynamics revived her! They're even doing a remake of the first Tomb Raider which I'm like, fangirling over right now. xD Just the idea of it! YAY! I love the first game. Gotta be my favourite just because it has so many good old time memories tied with it. Same for TR2.

:shuts up:

:waves to the funky looking Sphinx in the BG of her craptacular background on the drawing: XD Sorry... the caffine from this Dr. Pepper must be finally kicking in. o___O;

I do stuff like this with jus a pen, sometimes the inspiration comes and it jus happens to be the nearest thing to hand and away I go. I'm scared that if I go find my fave pencil and some decent paper the mental-imagery will fade! So a pen sketch in a lined notepad is what it ends up as!
Thinking of scanning any half-decent stuff I've done in the past and photoshop-out any smudges and lines etc.

But this is a cool pic, btw. Way better than my own

xD I'm well aware. I was just messing around when I drew this anyhow. ^^; Thanks though.
TheOnlyWarman Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2006  Professional General Artist
;) , it's still a really cool pic, i mean it was pen only so great work
Rainfelt Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm not sure why but I really like her arms. And her expression. Tis great!
greatshoyru Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2006

talk about striking resemblance XD,she's beautiful!

Your style and tomb raider were made for each other!
shino521 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006
HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII lara, Im very tired today so im a little loopy right now. Great picture. I need to play a tomb raider game.
indeefan Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2006
Not bad work, but its not your best, the boobs are a little small, Lara is famous for her triple D chi chi's, Kinda sketchy and rough (I understand you didnt have your pencil bag, so its not bad at all)
Horus-Goddess Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I made it a point to make her boobs smaller. XD It's not logical for her to have such large boobs, and if she did, she should get a boob reduction... flipping around and such like she does, she wouldn't want huge boobs getting in the way. xD At least that's my feeling on it, being a girl and everything.

thanks for the comment otherwise. :3
indeefan Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006
Sorry, me no like reading xD
Horus-Goddess Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
why comment then? You would want me to read what you take your time to say right? So wouldn't it only be polite to do the same for me? Or would you rather I ignore you completely? I'm sorry, I just find that rude.
indeefan Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006
Whoa, alright, you want a real artistic comment?

her face is totally off, she looks nothing of lara croft, her body proportions are wrong and her weapon detail is mediocre, the background is just crap and it looks like it was done out of sheer laziness, I would move this to scraps if I were you.

Seriously, save your deviations for more worthy work, cause you are such a "wonderful" artist and your hands create such "beautiful" work

heres a tip from a fellow deviant: LEARN HOW TO TAKE A JOKE
Horus-Goddess Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
How am I supposed to know the emotion behind your comments if you don't make it clear? I didn't say that to upset you but, if you'd rather continue being disrespectful that's your call. I'm not saying I dislike critique, if you weren't observant enough to notice, most of my deviations have the "critique optional" flags. Meaning I accept either or. I'm not saying I only want one or the other. And you're missing the point entirely.

I replied to your first comment stating reason behind why I made her breasts smaller than usual, and you replied rudely "I'm too lazy to read all that sorry", to some extent. Wouldn't you find that rude or is that just me?

Critique all you want, I don't really care. It's the fact you're doing it just to "get back at me" for stating my opinion on something. It's like you expect me to listen to you but you don't listen to me, and that is just plain rude. Just because I'm a so called "popular" artist, doesn't mean I have the attitude of one. I'm not stuck up about my art in fact, I rather don't get why people like my art so much majority of the time, when I know there are other people out there far better than I am. I'm rather humble about my artwork and I don't flaunt it, so please don't get the wrong impression.

I would just appreciate it if you would be more respectful. Make sense? If you expect respect, you need to give it. Otherwise you wont recieve respect or courtesy from anyone. If that's what you want then continue. I'll just block you. ;)

Who doesn't like Lara? The new game was bad ass, loved it! Great to see another Lara fan!!
Yes, ball pointing it, that's the way to do it! lol
PaperFiend Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2006
yay, its wonderful! XDD and I agree, I'm glad theres some new games with her in...I really enjoyed legends and I actually completed it (ZOMG!!), but for some reason it didn't feel right- it didn't feel like the old games. I'm not knocking it, I liked it, I just think its not the same...
RedWingsDragon Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2006
Great work here

stardroidjean Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006
The pose is lovely, and it just has a good.. Tomb Raider feel to it. I've never played any of the games myself XD

Lara is sooo fucking pretty....
Now I really want to draw her...and she
what she would look like in my style...
crappy I'll bet XD I'll probably screw it up and stoof...

Anyhoo....I love how you draw her Marie hun! >w<
mouse16 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006
Nice work! If I drew with pen, without drawing in pencil first...the outcome would not be good at all I'm afraid. My hands are too shaky when I work with pens, ann I make a ton of mistakes. You did an awesome job! ^_^. I love the expression and attention to detail, even if it is a sketch. ^_^.
Gunmetalblack Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006
Pretty cool! It has an energy to it and some good qualities. :) It's not your usual work (which I have a feeling and the multiple versions of them bear out that you work very hard on to make 'em absolutely perfect) but I kinda like just seeing you sketching something for the fun of it.

And it comes off better than you think. :) The quick scratchy linework gives your lines a whole different feel than usual.

Nice work! :) Very well done!

talented people annoy me

lol just kidding

SSJVToast Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
nice sketch, love the hips :D
Xhanthia Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006
I love it! And the fact that you drew it with a ballpoint pen makes it even more impressive. ^^ Lara Croft really does kick major ass.
misschievious Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
ooh thats great I love her expression and the back ground is very well done :)
SunSpriteRaven Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006  Hobbyist Photographer
Great job with her! I'm guessing you slightly sketched her torso lines, unless her shirt's transparent, lol. Drawing without sketching IS hard, especially when you can't erase because pens just don't work that way. That's probably why my drawings never look too good. I've never gotten into the habit of sketching and never really learned how. >_<
Lock-of-Hyrule Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ZOMG, that's all INK!!!! Holy crap in a basket...that's good! I do that sometimes too (a lot when I was in school, I drew a grim reaper once in the margins of my notes :XD: ) and I got pretty good at it...but yours is so much more awesome that anything I ever drew, pen AND pencil!
Katana123 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006
You should make another one with Masurao sneakin' up behind her :D
Flaming-Scorpion Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006  Student General Artist
nice!! and i do agree, most of my pen sketches are horrible sense i do enough ruff sketchin to choke a horse (if that made any sence) anywho this is amazingly good for a pen sketch in my book @_@ and nice detail as well!
Egypt again... I hate the sand, get's in all the cracks...

sorry I so rarely get to use my Tomb Raider quotes ^_^ very nice work.
Horus-Goddess Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ah, and that's one of my favourites too! :D

Thanks for the comment. :3
You're very welcome for the comment... I don't do it that often... but if it's something that I either A) Favourite or B) think of snazzy quote for I will. lol.
