The screen is from the Global Brand Director at Crystal Dynamics! I hope we'll be seeing the REST of this shot soon! :)

Very nice render, thanks for posting it Katie_Tomb_Raider, looking forward to seeing a bigger version if one is offered to the fans. Lara is for once looking quite normal in that render, nice to see.

If it is from the cutscenes then does it mean they could be CGI:(

Anywho, nice picture!:D

GOL has hand drawn web comic style cutscenes, not CGI, and not even like the Tomb Raider games. The picture is a render, hair that realistic cannot be done with a game engine yet.

Yeah, you are right. I donĀ“t think the cutscenes will look like that either, since they said in one of those articles it would be comic-style. But wouldn't it be great if the next TR looked like that? :eek:

Is it a render though? It looks drawn/painted to me. :confused:

So where is that full version? Gimme! :D

Thats good that's its not CGI because I'm not a fan at all:D I like the comic style cutscenes though, cause the games I've seen use them are quite nice to see.

So it just like the renders they released for underworld and the renders some games release? Not something thats actually powered by the engine as you you said as it can't be done with current engines? I'm really confused today cause I've got a headache so not much information is taken in:lol:

From what I can see Lara's looking absolutely stunning in that image! Oh, and Totec doesn't look half bad either... ^.~

@Ants_27_ It's just a fancy render to promote the game, it's not actually a representation of the in-game graphics (Hehe, I sound like the small print included in game commercials).

I love Lara's face!

And that guy reminds me of someone, give me a minute.

OMG!!! :eek: That is totally AWESOME!!!!
Lara's face is just perfect! Best Lara render for a game, imo!!!

Thanks for sharing Katie!

Wow that looks stunning! But lara's face is a little bit different. Oh well she still looks like a hardcore killing machine :D

Now that I've seen the full image, is it wrong for me to say that Totec is pretty good looking (especially for an ancient god/guardian)? :o It's just that I thought he'd look like a monster more than anything...

Anyway I still think that Lara's looks absolutely stunning here; and if I didn't say that, she'll probably kill me judging from the expression she has on her face! :D

Incredible shot. Love everything about the look of it and hope the game looks as good.

Lara's face I think is brill and right again but the TRU Lara had a good face in promo shots but didn't happen in the game. I really want to see Lara look like that in GOL.

My headaches cleared now and I understand it all now!:lol::D

it would have to be Perseus she could get along with him, Kratos would try and pound lara's face into the ground and make it concave and then ask for forgiveness by killing himself...total emo moment :P

Haha, gods are supposed to be attractive Han. :p Though he does have those bone piercings....

I guess you're right, but I was just thinking that in certain media they make gods seem more menacing and "bad ass" than attractive... :p

Also come to think of it he's not been classed as a god, as he? (I was a bit unsure in my previous post so I looked back at a few preview articles). He's just been called a warrior. Anyway I thought he'd look more over-the-top aggressive like Kratos from God Of War or something.

What I'm trying to say is that it surprised me when I realised he looks more like a normal bloke than a few warriors/gods/guardians lately. In my mind he was either a monster or someone with HUGE unrealistic muscles (Chris Redfield I'm talking about you!).

He still looks pretty attractive with those bone piercings through his nose though. Hehe... I can't believe I've just said that! :lol: And yes I know he's a fictional character before you say anything, I'm not fixated on him. :p

Chris Redfield is indeed unrealisticly HUGE! But I love him that way!!!:p

But you're right about Totec! I never expected him to look so good!!!

Yes I'm not alone! :D

Although I have to admit, I do prefer Resi 1/Code Veronica's Chris because it was a bit weird to see him that big in Resi 5 (He's so big that they've now made him fight The Incredible Hulk in the MvC3 trailer!). O.O

I honestly prefer him in Resi 5!!! His just too damn hot to resist!!! ^.^
But I didn't know about that trailer! Got to go check it out!!! ;)

But back on topic, Totec really looks great and I'm glad to see Lara in a more realistic style!!! :thumb:

It is a render, a piece of art done by some as yet unknown artist who probably does not even work for Crystal Dynamics. Nothing to do with how Lara would look in the game, although as many have said it would be nice if her face looked that realistic in TR9. Considering it is such a nice piece of artwork it would be great to see it on a magazine cover, but GOL being a download only game it might not get a cover. :(
