Did you know the one in charge of writing Reborn was Rihanna Pratchett, daugther of the famed fantasy comedy author?

i love that you incorperated the anniversary outfit in the reflection! it is somthing that even for the person who is just getting into tomb raider might wonder, why her reflection was different. and this would link to the elder games. good luck and keep posting art! ;)

I didnt even notice that her reflection was different at first. I like how subtle that was!

Good luck ^^

Very nice vibrant colours and a nice pose and expression. My only crit is that youve painted her with a bow but no quiver, that poor girl only has one arrow! you're not the only one to do this, by the way.

Have you got time to paint one in?

Thanks!! I tried to put one in, but it looked like it wasn't going to show very much. Kind like a "whats that" lol But I think you are right. If I position one in right, it could look cool! Thank you so much for the comment!!!

Really well thought out composition and storytelling in this piece. Makes a nice change from the standard shots of Lara just sort of standing somewhere with no real purpose. You've captured a sense of her character and her story as well as just her look, that sets it apart from the other entries in my opinion. Very nice work.

Excellent stuff - I like the reflection of the past/future, subtle and very good. Clocked something different with the reflection and then it made sense - Bravo.

Very welcome!. It's a really fine interpretation of such a well known character, and forgot to add the convincing way you made her hold the bow and arrow too. :)
