Tomb Raider by KeithByrne Tomb Raider by KeithByrne
In 1996, my aunt showed me her Sony Playstation for the first time. She was playing Tomb Raider. As soon as I saw Lara Croft leap off a cliff face and open fire on a pack of wolves who had attacked her mountain guide, I was hooked. Soon, I got my own copy of Tomb Raider and I was completely addicted. It's been 15 years and Tomb Raider remains my favourite series of all time while Lara Croft sits firmly atop my list of favourite characters. And I doubt that will ever change.

This is a tribute to the very first Tomb Raider game (with influences from the 2007 remake Anniversary).

Lara was my first artistic love. I've been drawing her for as long as I can remember my love for drawing. Andy Park, the pencil artist of the Tomb Raider comic series has been a huge influence on me over the last decade and I looked to his work for guidance when working on this.

Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom Bamboo

You can now purchase this design on a t-shirt HERE at TeePublic! :D

I always thought they should have made the games into comic books. The first four and the final three were amazing!

My mum was the person who first introduced me to tomb raider, I always would play it in holidays and still do, my mum still lets me play, even though I always end up falling off the cliffs and splat on the ground, but I love it!

I was 10 or something when I played TR1 the first time. :D I remember when my mom saw the CD cover of this: "There's a woman with pistols and big breasts on it." xD
