Forty Fathoms by tansy9 Forty Fathoms by tansy9
I realised it's been a long time since I did any Tomb Raider fan art, and it's about time I did Lara some justice! :)

This picture is one I've had in mind for years but never got around to doing.

Tomb Raider 2 was one of the very first PC games I ever played, my sister and I used to watch my dad playing it when we were very young, and when I was 8 years old I was determined to be just like Lara when I was older.

Well, obviously that never worked out... but Tomb Raider 2 is still one of my all time favourite games, and I can still remember when I first played the underwater levels and got eaten by great white sharks! :XD:

Edit: 25/04/12 Updated image with a slightly bigger, improved version. :)

Love the attention to detail and the way it isn't overly sexualised. Fave'd.

(The Last Revelation was what introduced me to video games, and I was absolutely the same as you at eight. Know the Tomb Raider nostalgia feeling, believe me.)

Thank you! I'm very glad that you relate. :) Tomb Raider was what got me into gaming as well. Lara appeals to women too, not because of her overt sexualisation, but because she is a strong and inspiring character. When I was 8, I wanted to be Lara Croft. :XD:
