Blessed feces I don't know how I missed this one. Last time I read a Tomb Raider comic was when Lara Croft met up with Witchblade for the (I think) first time. Awhile ago.

Still, thank you for posting amazing work. I'm sure Top Cow is pleased with your work. I know I am, Fellow Artist.

Thanks; though, just so you know - I did this cover & it saw print in 2004. It's not new or anything.

I think I'll go back in and put in dates on all my work, LOL.

So what if you did it in 1984? Still is incredible work. I see you even updated it in 2008 so not the freshest upload anyway.

I didn't update it in 2008; that's the first time I uploaded it because I just joined DA at that time.

I only pointed out the date because the person posting the comment seemed to be assuming that it was brand-new art, just done for Top Cow.

As this has led to some confusion in the past, I'm forced to clarify the dates of all matrial, even to the point of redundancy.

~AH!~

That sounds very VERY annoying, having to repeat yourself over and over. Actors must feel the same way during countless interviews.

It tends to get annoying, yes. Especially when someone ELSE takes you to task for doing preventative disclaimers, saying "You don't have to spell it out, you know", because responding to THAT becomes tedious.
It's why I stopped frequenting message boards and forums for stuff I liked. I found that if I was brief, people frequently took what I said out of context. If I took the time to explain myself, to prevent that from happening, some OTHER joker would chime in with "Geez; can we get the Reader's Digest version of that?" I decided that to stay on such forums requires either a stony heart or a love of confrontation, neither of which I possess in abundance.

I just finished Tomb Raider Underworld, so this is a nice addition. Had you ever done any cover art for 'Ghost'? she was my fav' character & your style is very similar to the cover art I remember, if you didn't maybe you'd be tempted to have a go as i'm sure your style would be perfect!

I was the original artist on GHOST!

Ah excuse my ignorance, hope no offense was taken! i'm a fan of Mucha art and Ghost was something that was drawn in that same beautiful way. I'm sure all your hardcore fans would hang me from a tree for not knowing! lol
All your art is excellent and i'll sure become a fan now - all my comic book history is inherited from my dad and his Captain Britain collection, which was excellent by the way, but you prob' know all about it, & i've only recently started immersing myself in more modern work - there's so much.
I'm going to try my hand at some Captain Britain art - I did 'The Fury' and it's in my gallery so you can punish me for not knowing you were the artist on Ghost by leaving a biting remark in my gallery! lol
Thank you for replying and putting me right

Did not buy the comic - - no shops nearby and I'm not in the habit of buying comics just for the cover (I've no idea who did the insides), I'm not a fan of Lara Croft, or video games in general -- but this is one stunning cover and had I seen it on sale, I think me and a few dollars would have parted company...

You have excellent and dominant work. Thank God you came to deviantART.

I especially like the way you colour skin, I admire people who can colour and make that much muscle depth. :)
