This is Tanya, a Lara Croft cosplayer. In my opinion, one of the best ones out there! :heart:

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 :la: 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 :icontanyacroft: :heart:

the lighting and textures on her skin are unbelievable! wish i had the wrist control to do this, my shading always comes out scratchy:S
c'est la vie i guess, my arm shakes terribly when i focus on it. its a problem but ill get there.

try not focusing on your hand and doing things very slowly :D take a piece of paper and move the pencil over it really fast, but pressing really gently not to chafe it. it is easier when you do it fast (but not too fast, depending on how big the area you're wanting to shade is) because there's less room for mistakes - because when you catch a certain tempo there will be less differences in the shades (darker or lighter). hope that makes sense :XD:

thanks for the advice, i have been trying since i first got this message, and you are right... i can control the pressure, it just takes a hell of a lot of work for me XD
my arm shakes because i broke it badly and it left nerve damage when i was a teen:S but i will keep fighting the good fight and doing what i love, creating!
thanks again so much, your comment has actually really helped me! i think i just needed to take a step back and remember its not a contest.

i am so glad! :iconyesyoucanplz: and sorry about the broken arm, i have to tell you that it's one of my worst fears to break a bone (oh no, me and fears again :D ).

keep doing it :shakefist: :heart: :D

its alright, it happened years ago.when it did it ruined me, because i couldnt use my arm properly for like two years.
nerve damage is a bitch but it taught me to be less rigid about myself.
i have broken, fractured, knocked or bruised almost every bone in my body at one point or other in my life. it lost its edge a while back.
i broke my ankle this january and didnt even bother going to hospital, i was hopping for a week and then limping for two months. my doctor told me when i visited him two weeks later it was setting nicely, and i had treated it well... im just past the point of letting things bother me anymore i guess:D
(and dont worry about being sympathetic, im a freerunner and used to a skateboarder, so most of my injuries were self inflicted) :love::salute:

I'm one of the fans who don't like to see the naked Lara >.< (she's too sacred for that x). But. Your traditional skills are crazy! And Tanya certainly has the body and a huge love for Lara, from what I've seen so... awesome drawing ^^ 3
