It's a new entry to my Video Game Boss Battles series! After about a year!
Seriously I did the lineart for this in summer 2008 and even started to colour it. But I wasn't happy with the colours at first and decided to come back to it when I felt like it. To be honest, back then I doubt I would have got the colours quite so good anyway, I've probably had a bit more practice on my technique since.
Well you know how it is, sometimes things left on the backburner get left for some time!
Anyway I'm sure you'll all agree that Lara Croft vs the T Rex from the original Tomb Raider is one of the all time great Video Game Bosses. When it first appears the general reaction seems to be "Oh Shit!"
I initially wanted this to be more of an action piece but all the ones I did looked too similar to my "Kratos vs Hydra" picture so I thought I'd take a different route instead.
Hope you all enjoy anyway. It took forever to colour in!

and a massive thanks to
for their beautiful misty forest brushes, without which I probably would have given up on the picture altogether.
