I'm not exactly an active blog writer, but when I make an entry I do have smth important to say!
There's been a great ton of absolutely amazing an exciting things going on due to the #TombRaider20
anniversary which gave me a solid excuse to finally stop pushing back an idea I had for ages.
You all know Tomb Raider
has been my biggest inspiration ever since I fell in love with the franchise, and those who know me very well
are well aware that AoD is one of my all time favorites, which I'm absolutely crazy about still. And despite all the intense love/hate clashes on the game itself, you'd all agree that it had the most interesting and fascinating characters in the history of the whole franchise. And for me personally one of the most exciting things is translating all those old-gen graphics into the real life renditions, the way I imagined them (hyper realistic graphics these days sends your imagination right to hibernation, c'mon). So this is exactly what I've attempted to do with this AoD tribute project of mine!
Let's get to business already, shall we
So as my tribute to the #TombRaider20
anniversary I've painted a series of stylized portraits depicting all of the main Angel of Darkness
characters the way I imagined them in reality. All those lil guys are wrapped up and ready to see the world, so to keep the boulder (yes!
) rolling I'll be releasing a portrait every Monday
starting this week! So stay tuned guys, I'm very excited about the whole thing, had a real blast working on it, so hope it'll come to your liking as well!
I'll be posting the series on all of my social network places so feel free to raid any of your choice (pinkie promise, no death traps!) BLOG
As a little tribute already will drop here a reworked version of my old AoD piece so you don't get bored waiting for Monday!
And I absolutely can't wrap it up without a HUGE shout out to my beautiful friend Jenni Milward aka Greenkey2
for providing me with a huge inspirational boost to complete the project and giving valuable tips on the characters personalities. This epic lady also happens to be an official unofficial voice of Lara Croft and a super talented writer (among other awesome things!) who's also cooking up an epic anniversary tribute project which you can check out at her new shiny web site
! (c'mon, admit it TR people, we all love shiny!) Busy girl, gotta go!
P.S. Question to the fans: how many coconuts would Lara have by now?
