This is a very good painting. Her face and hair are really nicely done. Also the mood and feeling of the whole painting works very well. I really like the texture in the background. There is just one anatomical thing that kind of sticks out. That is the clavical bones which seem to bulge out quite extremely and kind of confuse the area where the neck fits into the ribcage. Other than that, this is a really good painting. Lovely textures and coloring. I wish I could accomplish something like this :)

Holy shit Tian! O_O Was my first expression after seeing this.

I was going to just favourite it and move on, but I couldn't resist giving you a little feedback about what I thought about this Tomb Raider piece. I love how you've branched out a bit now and are using lots of different brushes to add that much more detail to your artworks. The details on the rocks are a great example of this. Looking at the varying resolutions of detail, it seems you've spent a lot of time making sure her skin isn't perfectly toned (and I know it isn't in the game), but cut, grazed and dirtied, she's also bleeding from the head and her arms are covered in bandages, which in the artwork tells me she's been through a lot. I'm loving the sharp details of the hair, and the way it's blowing around in the wind gives me a sense of movement, as does the foam and mist from the ocean. I'm also noticing a slight use of depth of field too. The use of colours is pretty much perfect, exactly the same as they are in trailers and screenshots, well done.

Overall I'm really loving this piece, it's dark and gritty, it shows drama, we can tell Lara's been through a lot and she's in pain, and we can sympathise with her. I think it's safe to say this is your best work yet Tian! and I'm not just saying that because I enjoy looking at your art, I genuinely believe it is. Congratulations! ^_^

I think I've found my new wallpaper for the next few months. :)
(on a side note, it would be awesome to catch up before I move ^^)

Hey Alex, thanks a lot for taking time and write this for me! It's always really awesome to hear such detailed comments and very cool to have people viewing your artwork so carefully. I really appreciate it! And thanks for using it as wallpaper too :D

Unfortunately don't think I stand a chance for the competition but oh well XD haha!

Hey Tian, no problem :) When I see something of yours I really like, I'll be sure to always leave a comment AND of course spend ten minutes in awe examining the finer details! :D :hug: Your cropped version of 'Alive' seemed to fit my screen res the best, but it was missing something... so did some quick photoshopping to make sure your signature was on there xD So now it is, hurrah! :)

In terms of the competition, I think you're being really hard on yourself, something which is common for artists to do (even I do it). So far I've only seen a few works that are as good as yours (I've faved them). I personally didn't think Patrick Brown's entry was that good which is a shame since his artworks are usually awesomesauce.

I do believe you're in with a strong chance though Tian. Don't lose hope! Keep your head up high and be proud of the work you've done! :hug:
