This is Tanya, a Lara Croft cosplayer. In my opinion, one of the best ones out there!
I've been having a bit of a creative block for some time now - started about 5 drawings and didn't finish any of them, in fact i abandoned them pretty quickly.
And then, Tanya uploaded a beautiful series of slightly nude Lara cosplay photos, which was in my opinion very brave and the moment i saw them i knew it - that's it, i just HAVE to draw her
so it came out to be a great combination of what I've been wanting to do - Lara Croft and a serious graphite drawing. I only regret that the likeness to Tanya somewhat lost itself during the process
Also, I would just like to say to all the people who have been judging Tanya for this move (calling it pornographic and attention seeking) that Tanya already has a great reputation as a Lara cosplayer and in many opinions is the best one out there, so it's a bit absurd to call her attention seeking and in need to take her clothes off to gain likeness to Lara. She doesn't need to impress anyone anymore, so open your minds a little bit before you open your mouths.
I hope Tanya likes it, you can check her page here
