Stalactite Shrine by jameswolf Stalactite Shrine by jameswolf
So my GF and I recently finished LC: the guardian of light and I was inspired enough to work up a quick concept based on the whole tomb exploration theme

And Kudos to Crystal dynamics for creating an awesome couples game, the only things missing in my GF's eyes were the ability for lara and totec to make-out after completing missions and that they didn't start dating after the game ended lol

anyway let me know what you think :)

UPDATE! High Quality prints of this painting can now be purchased here! ---> [link]

holy shiznit! I have never seen water rendered that way. and the way you accomplished the ambient feeling and the sense that there is so much more underneath the water. I must learn these tricks myself lol

wonderful painting

You did such an amazing job on the lighting in this piece. Everything looks so perfect and calming while you are looking high above the cliff at the crystal water below. :nod:

This is simply awe-inspiring! You've applied a lot of detail into this, and no doubt a par of effort, and the colours make the scenery seem so exotic! I also love the angle and realistic lighting reflecting off the surface of the water, pouring in shafts through the openings and on the rocks. :D The verdure are also a nice touch. ^_^ I'd be crazy to try and parallel something as incredible as this!

I'm not sure why there are so fewer compliments in contrast to the plentiful favourites received, but excellent work! :D

I love the depth of this piece and the light and dark contrast. Sure you want to go to the light, but look how far away it is! It is almost giving me vertigo.

besides the obvious, i need your brushes and knowledge of contrast, you can manipulate light in such an extraordinary way,
keep making things that inspire you, it comes out great.
