Hello darlings!

I'm not exactly an active blog writer, but when I make an entry I do have smth important to say! :D 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 :la: 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! :XD:) 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! :salute:

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!)

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! :la:

Fugitive - updated version by Inna-Vjuzhanina

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! :blowkiss:

P.S. Question to the fans: how many coconuts would Lara have by now? :rofl:

Thank you, hope you'll enjoy it! And definitely so! AoD is the kind of gem you need to discover for yourself 'cause if you just breeze through it you won't be able to fully appreciate it. Due to the fact the game was rushed to finish lots of absolutely fascinating plot details were left out so lots of things don't make sense unless you invest time in finding out how it was originally planned. And oh my, was it planned brilliantly! I think I'll never get over the fact that such a brilliant potential of absolutely breath taking game was just wasted like that... :no:

I feel so left out of all the Tomb Raider hype, being at work most of my time and then just derping on social media without giving it much effort because I can't... I'm on FB 24/7 thanks to a stupid app i downloaded on my phone, once again cause of work :XD:

Not to be a party pooper, but I just feel like I've missed on a lot of great things from Ash and Jenni. When she releases her surprise I'll be patiently absorbing (shhh) and BOY will i wait for your artworks like the number 1 fan i am :lmao: :lmao: this is going to be epic :iconspartaplz:

and that remake, pffstch, a bit of tweaking but it looks so so much better hihihi :D

Oh I know what it is!! I searched for it on your new website (was kind of in a hurry cause I was at work) and i didn't find it ;___; So I kind of figured that you're yet to upload it and that you still kept it secret. So I didn't want to spoil haha :D Silly me :D Darn, I have to go look again!¨:la: :heart:

Yep - found it now :D I saw the announcement on facebook and couldn't see where you uploaded the audio files, not sure if it didn't work for me first or I totally missed it :lmao: Can't wait to get to it :la::huggle: (and your voice, :iconhurrhurrplz: )
