Tomb Raider 15th Anniversary Art – Tansy Appleby

Community Contribution: “Against the Elements” by Tansy Appleby


“From what I have seen of the new Tomb Raider game it is darker, grittier, and tougher than anything we have seen before. The new game is centered on a young Lara learning how to survive and find the strength to push on no matter what. This is where she must learn to become strong, independent, and determined. I wanted to capture that transition; from pain and fear to where she finds the strength to carry on and fight through whatever is thrown at her, and thus turn from this girl into the woman we all know and love.”
