Survival Essentials by Beautiful-Ophiel Survival Essentials by Beautiful-Ophiel
This piece was made out of all recycled products using Acrylic Paint, a small piece of cardboard, and misc. pens, charcoal pencils, and markers.
It measures a little larger than 8X10inches in real life. (Photo dimensions of course are different, haha!)


The story behind this piece:

Lara Croft's story has always been a treasure. And what better way to discover that treasure than with the use of a map! The new game is supposed to explore Lara's vulnerable side; and I know when you're vulnerable, lost and scared, the greatest gift to help you get through any situation is a map of the journey that lies ahead! The reason I used Lara's face the way I did, is because you can read a person's emotions and their life's story through their eyes. And Lara's are so captivating, so I couldn't refuse!

I truly hope you like this piece I have done. If I get any kind of positive response, I may even be willing to sell this one :) I'm actually super proud of it!! hehe

Way better map than the one from the Curse of Meretseger lol.

This is gorgeous . . . I miss seeing your art on here, btw!

lovely image, but surely the use of the photo is against the rules?

".... may not use stock materials from others..."

if, however you created a collage of news paper/ magazine articles (fabricated) about the rich young heiress to re-create that image... now THAT would be epic...

Yeah I wasn't sure if I would be able to use this piece, Lara's face is from their original work, but it's an article I cut out from a gamer magazine. But I painted on top of it, then added it to the piece of cardboard, then painted and doodled on it some more :)

And the idea you had is amazing!!! I think that would be fun to try and do as well :D

Also, thank you for the compliment :3 it means a lot to me!! hehe
