Oh my...finally finished. This took so long. I drew it till now...I'm happy that I finished it. I actually had more concepts (around 5-6) for this and 2 of them were almost finished. But I decided to finish this one, because I thought it was most appropriate for this contest. I remember that I always played Tomb Raider as a kid, so I just had to draw something for this contest. And I drew this with colors from beginning till the end. I didn't draw with realistic style for so long, so I guess that's why it took me so many hours (her gun I drew for 5,5 hours :faint:). And this is actually my first matte painting. I always wanted to try that style, so I finally did it :la:

I wanted to draw Lara like she's hiding from the enemies and preparing for the battle. Enemies are attacking her and I also added arrows, so that they are going around the center (Lara), in the stone and on the ground... so that it would look like she has been attacked. I had more PSD files and just one file is bigger than 1GB... I had too many layers :giggle:

:bulletgreen: Adobe Photoshop CS6
:bulletgreen: tablet Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch Special Edition M
:bulletgreen: original size is 8442 x 4500 px
:bulletgreen: I had 331 layers :faint: (this is biggest number of layers I ever had). I had 3 main PSD files (just one file had 184 layers)...but here I didn't count layers from the background because I merged whole background (because file was bigger than 1GB). So for background I had another PSD (with background that's +50 layers).
:bulletgreen: I drew it 27,5 hours

I hope you like it and comments are welcome :heart:
