Adventure Found Me by Forty-Fathoms Adventure Found Me by Forty-Fathoms
Featured on the Tomb Raider blog! :happybounce: :party:

I am not sure if you all remember the lineart I mentioned in one of my polls somewhat recently, but I finally finished it and yes, it's Lara, I know. Anyways, this is a lineart for you all to color. It was really difficult to try and not shade it, since I hardly ever do strictly lineart. And I wanted to go back and try get into some comic styles again for the hell of it. My favorite part to work on was probably her top with her handle-strapped shotgun on her back. I really enjoy doing her hair too. About the background, that's the Endurance that Lara is on when she comes to the island and I don't know if you have ever seen big rocks on the beach before, but those are what those lines are and what she's sitting on. I've seen them on the beach myself and I figured Lara would see them too and take a time to relax. I also did this piece to do a picture of Lara relaxing. Many, including myself, always draw her in a tense state and I even have another piece that I am working on of her relaxed and enjoying her surroundings, to change up the pace a bit. Anyways, feedback and comments are always welcome! :heart:

Ah, this is so great! I totally agree with you about our dear raider being always depicted in the heat of a battle so seeing moments of calmness and relaxation is a real delight. I personally adore those artworks depicting Lara just marvelling the surroundings or just taking a breather... from damaging things :XD: - Off-top, this just cracked me up :rofl: [link] - And this is especially great that you chose TR10 for relaxing artwork - this is something our dear girl definitely needs after all the scrapes she got into. :D And damn, I definitely love this style! So neat and lovely! :heart:

That's really very good. Love the strong, solid line art and the great details. The best part is her posture and expression, as she takes a moment to consider what lies before her.

Thank you Jedd, and I think more people should try and draw Lara relaxed, I mean, who always wants to be stressed out? =p

I reckon if you did a colored version of this earlier, it would've definitely made the cut for the 15th Anniversary official fan-art.

Oh wow Nick! What a lovely compliment, I don't know if it would have, since the team and Meagan were wanting strictly digital artists and I don't think I would of been included too much because I did the lineart, not what would be the coloring job, but if that happened, I would of been so excited! :woohoo:

Thank you again, you're so nice to have liked the piece! :)

This is fantastic Sarah. The picture has a lot of dimension even though it barely has any shading. Great job and as always good work with the details
I can't wait to see a colored version of it!

Aww, thank you Mania! You're too sweet. :hug: It was super tricky because as I told others, it's hard to not try and want to shade it, since that's what I usually do.

As for the colored version, I hope that someone does it and shows me. There was at least 30+ downloads of my other Lara lineart and no one but two people showed me their colored versions. :hmm:

One of your best. I love her pose, great background for it. I'm sure someone would color it if you submit it to [link]

That's a good idea, I'll be sure to do just that! Thank you Jerica! I hate backgrounds and it took me so long to figure out something original, but I kinda just did the same thing I did with my first Lara/survivor picture that had the background. Haha, oh well. I can't always pull this stuff out like magic from a wand. =p

I know what you mean about backgrounds. It isn't easy to put new ideas out of a hat.
I've really got my work cut out of me with that Coraline garden. :XD:

That Coraline background is seriously one of your best pieces ever, hell, the entire picture is.
I just hope I can come up with better backgrounds in the future. :XD:

I'm finding even the foreground challenging because her pajamas have this red trim that I want to add and the vest she's wearing is quilted in lines. Not to mention getting the hands right....THE HANDS ^^;

I'm now procrastinating with a Thor illustration.

It looks really great! I love both your pieces with shading and this strict lineart. I hope I will have some more time to give it a try with colors. Great job, Sarah.

Thank you! It was so tricky trying to just do lineart since I usually do more realistic work with shading and highlighting and all that. I'm trying to do some pieces that are more comic to the eye but keep my other normal style of semi-realism works present too. If you do have the time, I would love to see how it would turn out. I'm positive you would do an excellent job on it. Thank you again Ula! :hug:

I can imagine how difficult it was. I guess that we both are artists thinking with lights and shadows, not with flat shapes. But you did it, and it turned out fantastic! :-)

Aww, you make me blush! :blushes: Thank you Ula! I wish sometimes, that I could be as talented as many artists that do strict lineart, but I guess my style is just meant to be different. Although I will admit, it is</u> fun to stray away every once in awhile. ;)
