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 ). And this is actually my first matte painting. I always wanted to try that style, so I finally did it
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
Adobe Photoshop CS6
tablet Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch Special Edition M
original size is 8442 x 4500 px
I had 331 layers (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).
I drew it 27,5 hours
I hope you like it and comments are welcome

Awesome. It really draws you in
I looked at this and thought, wow this is just so amazing. Then I looked at the description, and saw that you used 331 layers, and it's 8442 x 4500 px My brain just can't fully understand that. Like 331 layers???? What!? I like the way there is just so much going on, and the way it's in between a fight, so you have the action, but you've drawn it at a relatively calm moment. If that makes sense.
So AMAZING!! I love Tomb Raider O.O
