Tomb Raider II by KeithByrne Tomb Raider II by KeithByrne
After obsessing over TR1 and III for a few years, I soon bought TRII and the Last Revelation together in 1999. I loved TRII. The locales, the action, the adventure...it was like the original game on steroids. From yetis to cult members to floating stone guardsman to great whites, a dragon and even a sneaky T-Rex or two, Tomb Raider II had no shortage of danger and excitement. It's hard to believe it's been 12 years since I first played it and 14 years since it came out. I still enjoy wandering the canals of Venice, exploring the wreckage of the Maria Doria and ploughing through the foothills of Tibet on that lovely red snowmobile to this day.

Now, on to Tomb Raider III

Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom Bamboo

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

Tomb Raider II is truly the only tomb raider of the original trilogy that i have fairly beaten by going through all levels without any shortcuts. It is just such a fun game. Once it gets into the later China levels it starts to get weird (The Floating Islands level... horrible design), but the underwater and Venice levels were sooo fun. Such a classic.
Epic drawing, i might add.

Amazing!! I love how classic she looks here. The composition is perfect and the pose very Lara-ish. I really love the background and colors too. This would be a perfect poster!

Wow, this brings back memories of my first playthrough:)
I like the feeling of depth with Lara's foot reaching out over the frame like that.

TRII is my favourite, out of the games I've played. ^^ And all your fanaticism is making me want to play. :/ Only, I don't have TRII for the PS, I had it for the PC and it got stolen. D:

So pritty.

An epic depiction of the best TR game to have ever existed. Wish they'd remake it like they did the first one.

I remember my dad complaining in one of the games because he apparently got stuck in something because of her "gargantuan breasts: as he put it!

I love all of it except for one tiny, tiny, detail. The bit of "fluff" where her coat is smooshed beneath her belt... it doesn't look quite right. Fricken in love with the drawing in all other aspects, especially the pose and her face!

I love TR2 too! But I really hate the sound effects in it... :D But it's still one of the best TRs! And this is a great homage to this game.

without a doubt one of my favorite TR games. i really like that you drew her the Tibet jacket!

i know TR3 is you favortie TR game and thne TRAOD the second, but ranking-wise, where would you TR2 in?

I'm not really sure to be honest. If I was to rank them up it'd probably go something like

TR3 >> AoD = TR2 = TR1 = TR4 >> Chronicles >>> Underworld = Anniversary >>>>>>>>>Legend

Or something along those lines. They're constantly switching positions except for TR3 which will always remain my favourite and Legend which will probably always be my least favourite.

i see, i agree with most of your list except that i would rank Anniversary higher then Underworld. i like Anniversary more not because it's a remake of the first one, but because it's more of an solid game.

Underworld, while it was fun to play, i constantly got irritated by the glitches and the piss-poor continuation of the story line.

(sorry for the double post and the typo's in my first comment by the way.)

You've pretty well summarized TR2. It was my first Tomb Raider game at that time, shortly after it came out. I love absolutely everything in it. You've done it justice aaaand... the look of your painting (I mean the Wall of China background) is just like those old-fashioned photos and promos pictures coming from the past, I bet this is intentional.

I have no words. You have done my favorite game some serious justice here. Lara looks amazing, I love that you used the TRII inventory background screen, and the general attention to detail here is fantastic. :heart: I love it!

This is brill. Reminds me so much of an advert for the old games. I got into them around 2000 and my mom got me the same two also. I remember them being difficult but a good difficult. I used to play Venice just for the music & lock the butler in the meat freezer on the training stage.

Nathan McCree (who did the music for this game) is one of the greatest video game music artists ever. I love Venice's music, but the sucky thing is that my game always messes up and ends up playing like the same 15 seconds over and over again.
