178 Miss Croft
'Let's check the lunchbox...'
Another one resurrected from the grave! Again, I’ve finished off a picture I earlier rejected – maybe it’s my form of spring cleaning.
Lara Croft , probably the most recognised female game character, a strange and once very pointy sex icon, and something I like in particular about her, I’m proud to say she’s British. That last point is a bit of a weird one, but I do like my British game characters – probably the only British pride I have!
Anyway, as I’m sure you’re all aware, Tomb Raider just isn’t Tomb Raider if you don’t enjoy killing Lara… Come on, we all know nothing beats hearing Lara scream as she falls off cliffs, or seeing what kind of shape she takes after falling in the spike pit. That’s what computer games are for, it prevents us all from assassinating opulent ladies in reality.
The comic itself took some time and I initially abandoned it because of that wide central image… I’m still not huge on it, but it’ll do for now. I took it back up because I had already spent quite some time on it (doing the backgrounds) and thought it would be a waste! I’m also quite partial to the top right shot of Lara, not sure why but I like it.
