View Full Version : TR fan fiction and fan artwork

29th Jun 2002, 07:24
Any chance of a forum devoted to TR fan fiction and fan artwork? I'll be a Mod at it if you like ...

29th Jun 2002, 14:03
Hmmm..... Not sure on that. But I'm sure it couldn't be hard to find one somewhere on the web. It's a big place ;).

29th Jun 2002, 14:44
Obviously there are lots of forums elsewhere devoted to TR fiction and artwork. But that's not the same as having one at Eidos :)

29th Jun 2002, 15:14
There is the TR Community that you could use ;) .

29th Jun 2002, 15:18
Kind offer, but it's Eidos that needs to recognise all the writers and artists out there ...

This is true. I think it's a capital idea, and I would like to see such forums here.

Only the admins can beseech the great old ones who cause this forum to be if such a thing is possible, what with all the lawyerly ramifications and such.

Oh RedLegg41, oh Grey Mouser, hear our plea, and send forth our wishes to thy masters, on plumes of incense sweet, so that they might render judgement on this issue.

(virtually sacrifices virtual goat.)

Hmm. Fan fic under the very noses of the owners of Ms. Croft? No NC-17, no slash, no PWP, no drinking of anything other than lucozade...

etc. etc.

Wouldn't be much fun now, would it? ;)

29th Jun 2002, 19:14
I think it is a good idea. :)

30th Jun 2002, 05:11
If someone does have great art skills and they do want to be involved with eidos artwork how can that person get involved.

30th Jun 2002, 05:24
i am a good drawer of lara! I make her look all hot and stuff, not that she wasn't in the first place:rolleyes:

30th Jun 2002, 14:29
I am also a good drawer...


By Me :D

30th Jun 2002, 14:35
Nice Seth!

30th Jun 2002, 15:29
It's a veritable chest of drawers

30th Jun 2002, 16:06
whatever! you made her look all manish!

30th Jun 2002, 16:07
it looks like she has a ***** in that middle picture!

30th Jun 2002, 19:31
Apparently, by the way you are reacting, you can not do any better.

1st Jul 2002, 03:47
I would like to congragulate Seth on his drawing of a braid. You can draw braids even better that Eidos seth. The only problem with your drawings is in the bottom left drawing I can't tell if Lara is wearing a shirt or a bikini top :D

1st Jul 2002, 14:26
LOL, it's actually the outfit we saw Angelina Jolie wear in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, in Cambodia. So it's a tank top-type thing, but sometimes I ask myself the same question!

3rd Jul 2002, 11:36
Oh well :). It was only an idea ...

3rd Jul 2002, 12:20
I think it's a good idea, too. I mean why not?

OK, maybe some legal issues, but that's nothing important, eh? ;)

Here, Ostercy, I'll throw you a bone:


:D Hehehehehe :D

3rd Jul 2002, 12:20
I am doing some new ones. In the meantime, here's some oldies:

A Batman Animated style Lara:

And a more realistic (tho sketchy) Lara:

carry on....

3rd Jul 2002, 18:43
who could carry on after those :eek:

it was my first lara and computer coloring so please be kindhttp://http://www.geocities.com/laracroftfeb/south.JPG

greeeeeat its not working ah well

3rd Jul 2002, 22:17
This is a little sketch my hubby did of Lara

4th Jul 2002, 02:37
That's cool BeKs! I like the angled styled forehead strands.
Does your hubby do any kind of art or graphics for a living?
Good and fun work if you can get it!

4th Jul 2002, 02:50
WOW! beks, your husbands a really good drawer! here's mine that i finally scanned in.


THE True Lara
4th Jul 2002, 08:56
I've to say it, that really is a fantastic drawing by your hubby Beks. My only worry is that in that posture she'll dislocate her arm. (V. painful, take it from me.) But a fantastic drawing. I think I'm going to have to get my sketch book out now....

5th Jul 2002, 08:10
Judging from the response to this thread, there seems to be an interest in fan art out there :)

5th Jul 2002, 08:15
You might want to check out Agnes Heyer's artwork;


5th Jul 2002, 12:06
I think it's a speldid idea to have a forum dedicated to fan fic and fan art. :)
I'm all for it. :)

6th Jul 2002, 07:50
Thanks, Anneka :). I've a feeling that we won't get a forum, though ...

6th Jul 2002, 10:18
P.S. For what it's worth, they now have a fan art forum over at the Village of Tokakeriby;

I like the idea because especially on fanfics there is not enough on the net. It's nice to hear about Lara's adventures but I like different stories too like the xmas ones and stuff like that.

24th Oct 2002, 21:47
Wow, that would be really cool. We could even have contests for showcasing our work and be each other's critics. But how do we go about requesting another forum?

John Carter
25th Oct 2002, 00:59
In answer to your question above, bombard the admins with email requesting same.

This would be a good thing, there is a vast amount of TR fanfiction and fanart being produced out there, but none of its here, on the "home" forum for Lara Croft.

Something new would be nice to tide us over to the new game.

Core and Eidos haven't really leveraged the fan base in order to do a promotion blitz for AoD, although some efforts like the site kit have been made. There are folks out there who do tremendous amounts of creative work to celebrate their heroine/anti-heroine, and best of all from the corporate bottom-line viewpoint in promoting the product that pays the bills that provides us our hobby, such labor is free. :)

25th Oct 2002, 23:55
So everyone who is even mildly interested in having a forum solely devoted to Tomb Raider fanart and fanfiction, pleaaaaaaaasssssssssseeeeeeeeee write to the admins, even if it's only one letter. It would be something new and fun.

EDIT> to do that, just go to the Eidos Forums homepage, then find the link titled "Forum Leaders" in the bottom right corner, and there you'll find the Forum Administrators.:)

26th Oct 2002, 08:47
I'd be happy to be a moderator of a new Fan Fic/Fan Art forum.
My C.V.;

26th Oct 2002, 09:44
I have the feeling your ideas about fan fiction may not "family friendly" enough for an official Eidos forum.

26th Oct 2002, 21:07
I wouldn't be submitting my own fan fiction :). I'd just be moderating other peoples' discussion.

27th Oct 2002, 03:18
i have a lot of lara croft fan art! i love to go to websites and look at the fan art:D i have some of my own but tripod wont let me link it so u guys could chek it out at my site if ya want :D

drawing = my life :p

27th Oct 2002, 13:13
A fan fiction forum could have a link to the most famous TR fiction site, Tales of Power and Beauty - which, for those of you of a nervous disposition like GoranAgar (whom I'm sure has read my stuff and found it wanting in family values), doesn't feature any of my fan fiction :)

18th Dec 2002, 13:53
Weird - did the end of this thread get deleted somehow?

18th Dec 2002, 14:38
Thread bumping is against the TOU.

19th Dec 2002, 04:26
Let's make it legit, then.
Here's an old one I did as a prize for the REno Meet & Greet:
Here's a more recent one:
I gotta fix that nose one of these days.
And here's one I did during the old Hirondelle ECR days:

20th Dec 2002, 14:17
That's a sweet pic! I know how tough it is to draw with a mouse.
Tedioius is an understatement. Glad I have a Wacom Tablet!

20th Dec 2002, 18:29
wow!! u did that w/ the mouse!? u have great patience and tallent! good job :)

21st Dec 2002, 09:30
The cow is wonderful :)

22nd Dec 2002, 10:08
Ths s cute;


22nd Dec 2002, 16:43
There ya go.
Use not .
Then use not .

23rd Dec 2002, 11:07
Thanks :)

Who has been bombarding the Mods with emails then? :)

John Carter
16th Apr 2003, 23:41
That assumes bombarding the Mods with emails would have the desired effect. Bombard the admins instead. Even they don't have the final say-so, but have direct access to the mysterious entity who does, a legendary figure reputed to have posted once just for the fun of it.

25th Sep 2008, 16:46
The search thing throws up some very old threads :)

Then don't bump them **** **** **** ****

27th Sep 2008, 07:56
Oops. sorry.:)

I wasn't sure what to do. There isn't a thread already suggesting that this place start a fan fiction forum anywhere else that I can find. Should I have just started a totally new thread even though there's already an existing one? I assumed I'd get told off of that ...:rolleyes:

30th Sep 2008, 07:01
Hello? :)
