As some of you will know prior to Legends release I created quite a lot of visuals. I haven't created anything to do with Tomb Raider for some time now. However, now that TR Anniversary is on the horizon I'm all excited again, esp as it is inspired by the classic original!:jmp: So I've produced a wallpaper & more will follow depicting what I imagine TR1's stunning levels could look like with Legend-quality visuals.:D Feel free to comment or post your own designs too. I'll post more very soon. If you wish to have the image in wallpaper size please simply double click the image below.;)

Thank you everyone.;) I've created a new wallpaper depicting the underground sphinx along with some atlanteans which was in 'Sanctuary of the Scion' level.:D This level could look amazing in the TR Anniversary game!:jmp: I've tried to create an impression of what it could maybe look like.:) I'll post some more soon!

Thankyou for the comments. This is a wallpaper I designed that came out of a design I prepared for the Anniversary box cover for another forum.

I wanted to recreate the Scion to give it a more realistic look in keeping with the style of the new graphics, but adhering somewhat to the original design, and being sympathetic to the concept. I think it came out pretty well, but it was a bit of a challenge as there wasn't much material to go on.

Tell me what you think:

and the Scion on its own to better show the design...

In the meantime, a few of you have asked me if it's possible to have a desktop wallpaper featuring only the Scion from my last design:) . I've recrafted the image in photoshop, and made it available on deviantArt;) .

Like a lot of you, I am also excited that the ring-style menu will make its return in TRA. Here is my own concept, wherein the selected item rotates around the scion in 3D, and becomes highlighted by a soft spotlight. In the background of the image, projected against the wall, are silhouetted Laras. In my concept, these shadowy figures would animate as the player selects his options, striking classic and well-known poses from previous games.:D

Please don't shout...

More to the point, since when have there been live T-rexes ANYWHERE in the modern world? As far as I'm aware there aren't, but this is a game - it matters not. I'm pretty sure Lara ended up in some strange, other world in TR2 (Floating Islands). And who's to say those heads couldn't possibly have come from anywhere else?

Anyway, this is a stunning piece of work. Even if it's not entirely accurate, to me that was a rude way to point it out.

Inn_Hevonn_Klann, They are just concepts & the tombs are meant to be undiscovered, a cultural similarity could be possible because it's fictional, it's also unlikely that there is a lost valley with dinosaurs in Puru too.:rolleyes:

Here is a 'Sanctuary of the Scion' variation, also I've created an image depicting the beginning section of the 'Colosseum' level.:D I've created some crocs which are ambushing Lara!:D I'll post some more Colosseum images soon plus a scene from 'The Tomb of Tihocan.'

Abso-fabu-lutely jaw-droppingly incredibly stunning! Hope the game looks this good. I remember those amazing pieces you did for Lara's mansion in Legend, and the game manor was good, but nowhere near as good as those :( Someone please email these to Eidos :rasp:

They're cool!!!!! But MIDAS it was supposed to be ΜΙΔΑΣ! Well it gives a more realistic look!:p with a "mu" then "iota", "delta", "alpha" and followeed by a "sigma". I also know Cyrilica and Phoenician. Now I only need to know the languages. Oh and I also know Gothic! Not those crapy alphabets but the original one!

Until you start producing your own artwork I'd suggest you lay off of demanding what Kiss-bite should and should not do with his own work. ;)

Great work kiss-bite, they really do keep getting better and better, and damn the nostalgia is affecting me now just looking at them. :D

I have been preoccupied with other topics and have not really examined your work until now kiss-bite. It is truly exceptional!!! I feel guilty taking these images without payment. A talent such as yours should be rewarded/compensated for such fine work.

And while Inn_Hevonn_Klann may be correct about some of his observations, he should do so in private messages. When one is giving of himself as kiss-bite is doing, constructive, private exchanges are the way to go. "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth" as the saying goes.

Addition:
Of all of kiss-bite's renderings, conceptually I like "Enter the Lost Valley" (Lara alone, gazing upon her distant destination through much danger), and visually I like the "Enormous Underground Sphinx". Although all of them are astonishing in their creativity and design.

The problem with the name being written as ΜΙΔΑΣ meant that people who couldn't read the letters kept stepping on his hand by mistake. This lead to an influx of gold on the stock market and as a result, prices plummeted, putting a lot of people out of business. So Midas decided to make his name more accessible to everyone to prevent further misunderstandings and lawsuits. ;)

First off I would like to say these are amazing!

I would never be able to create these in a million years! :eek: (sobs), and I really like the King Midas wallpaper. Maybe could you make one with a panther near the giant sphinx. It reminded me a level in Egypt when you jumped over a hill and a panther jumped out. This was an idea and I'm not forcing you KB! :whistle:

I've decided to create some wallpapers by traditional means, back to basics pencil & paper with some added digital effects later down the process lime. I drew some concepts a while ago for Legend before it was released. It started as pencil sketch which I coloured using watercolour, inks, and then I added additional effects, courtesy of photoshop.:)

I've recreated this image but with classic Lara instead. I will draw some more soon & then transform them into wallpapers.:D

The simplest way to explain, they are are made up by a collage of many different elements. The elements are created using stock photos, screens etc.. & other parts are created from scratch by me, every element is heavily manipulated, re-shaped, recoloured & blended. For example, the crocs I made by using real photos of crocodiles, I cut them out & used different pieces of them to construct a design, shaped the pose until I was happy. I then digitally painted over the top, adding additional touches such as new eyes & teeth, the final touches like recolouring, blurring & blending etc.. brings it together. It can be a quick to very time consuming process depending on the complexity of the image & its key elements. There are so many pics of Lara that can be used, but sometimes I have to construct a Lara from different pieces;)

Although I do draw & create images the traditional way as well, I studied Art & Multimedia Design at University.;)

Here are a few more images I've created of The Cistern waterways.:D

Thank you!;)

I've created an image of Croft Manor, the concept of the manor garden bathed in moonlight was inspired by the brief media we've seen of Lara's home in TRA.:D I'll post some more very soon.:)

Thank you very much.;) I didn't want re-create Lara's home exactly like the TRA mansion, but create my own vision based on older Croft Manor concepts I created for Legend.:D

A concept I did of Croft Manor a year ago before Legend was released.

I've created an image depicting a menacingly wild battle between Lara & a crocodile in The Cistern's depths. It was inspired by a recent low quality mag scan of an image that looks like an interactive cutsene of a similar battle.:D
