Lara Croft portrait (3D) by Sterrennacht Lara Croft portrait (3D) by Sterrennacht
I rendered that model I've been working on in Blender, then I took the official render from VisualWorks and put it in another layer, lowered the opacity a lot till I thought it looked right. I quite liked the result. :D
Her hair is a bit of a mess, since I'm no genius when it comes to image editing. :stare:

I hope you like it. :)

Credit to VisualWorks/Crystal Dynamics/Square Enix for the official render and the character Lara Croft, no copyright infringement intended. Tomb Raider will be available on March the 5th!

I've got a bit of a headache right now, so there are probably some weird bugs in there that I overlooked. I'll check tomorrow. =p

Oh and please don't use/post somewhere else without my permission, okay?

Edit 01/05/13:
Made eyes more intense (expression) and some other very small changes that nobody will notice. XD

Very cool model! When you plan release? There is a strong wish to remove game Lara... and to test it))) It is much better, than in game

Yes YES! Let us know when you're finished so I can remove TheFil's stolen "clean" version and use your model!

De beelden uit de serie Tomb Raider 2013 LC mod zijn elke keer ontzettend mooi.
Een goed contrast tussen vrouwelijkheid en androgynie.

Amazing model, amazing render, amazing modding skill.
Absolutely incredible.

WOW ... her face looks the same ! :D Maybe you're the artist from the Visual Works who created the CGI model ? hehe She's just perfect, and necklace is a masterpiece ! :D It is so detailed. I can see that you did catch this magnificent look in her eyes... I couldn't make her eyes that beautiful in my model :( . Anyway, shape of the lips are a bit different :P heh ... ok it is not .. I'm just jealous :D
hymmm I can see that you still have a prob with hair ... Can I give you some advices ?
I can see that the basic mesh is really good, I would just add a bit of volume and improve the textures ( I think that you should blur the ends of hair and make it a bit more transparent than the rest of the hair).
If you will need my help just send PM to me ... but you'll probably won't cause you are the most talented artist in mesh-modding :D, anyway feel free to use this hair [link] . This model is still not released, but I can send it to you cause as long as we have your amazing Lara model there's no need to create another one :D ... I can focus on my Sam model now :D
I wish you luck ! :D

Thanks a lot, it means a lot to hear this from you. :la: I'm a big fan of your modding skills. :D
Haha, you are giving me waaay too much credit. =p Thanks, I tried. :D I didn't pose the face, once I've rigged her head I can pose her and maybe her mouth and eyes will look better then. I tried to fix it a bit with photoshop now. :ninja:
No, you shouldn't be jealous, you have a lot of talent. ;)

Thanks for your advice, I will try my best to improve it. Your hair is absolutely incredible, omg. :omfg: :faint: I could never make something like that. :rofl:

No, you should keep it for your own model. It's so beautiful, I'm sure you spent a looong time making that and I wouldn't feel comfortable taking it from you. You know people, they never read the descriptions or credits. I can't take it, even though I wish I could have it. :D I am looking forward to your model too. It's great to have many different ones, every model has something unique that makes them better than the others... please continue on your Lara model and also on your Sam model. :eager:
Thanks, good luck to you too. :hug:

Hey wow great job, Her eyes is a bit big though (Personal Opinion) if you want it to make similiar with cinematic version of her.
Her eyes in cinematic version is bit narrower [link] , well i guess that because the use lighting model for the base of her,
But hey...still it's awesome works :).
And you might want to hold the release of this model after the Tomb Raider Competition is finished, or you gonna see your model used for that contest ( a lot) :), except if that what is you want

Sterrennacht Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2013
Thank you! Yeah, she is quite stone-faced because I didn't pose her face at all, haha. =p
I tried to make the expression of her eyes more intense with photoshop, but I'm not very good with that so I hope it looks better now. Wow, really? I had no idea they used Lightning as a base model, that's interesting. I always thought she looked quite similar. :D
Yes, you are right, thanks for the advice. Well, it would be against the rules anyway to use it, since you are supposed to enter with something you made entirely by yourself. This isn't entirely my work either :ninja:, so they would be using something that another person made by modifying yet another person's work. I don't think that would be acceptable. =p
