Fanart Friday – DeviantArt’s Tomb Raider Reborn

by . March 8th, 2013

The legendary Tomb Raider video game series comes back after a few years of hiatus. The game returns this year with a revamped Lara Croft and a rebooted series, creating a new Tomb Raider continuity. Along with the release of the game, released a contest that calls for members of the community to create their own interpretation of Lara Croft.

The contest calls for DeviantArt artists to draw their inspiration from one of the game’s breathtaking trailers — Tomb Raider “Turning Point”. The trailer features a young Lara Croft aboard the ship, Endurance. The title of the trailer refers to Lara Croft’s “turning point” — from a novice adventurer to a hardened survivor, adventurer, and explorer.

Here are some noteworthy entries from DeviantArt’s Tomb Raider Reborn Contest:
