15-Year Celebration: “Into the Darkness” by Brian Horton

“Survival has been a rich theme for the dev team, providing opportunities to add emotional depth and a new range of scale for a Tomb Raider game.  For this painting I wanted to explore an intimate moment of Lara overcoming fear, pushing forward through a dark and claustrophobic space.  In my fine art I collaborate with models so I was fortunate to work with Meagan Marie on a photo shoot for the painting.  She captured the emotion I was looking for perfectly, pushing through the pain of that pose I asked her to hold.  Thanks again Meagan, you rocked it!” - Brian Horton

Brian Horton is a 16-year veteran of the video game industry and is the Senior Art Director on Tomb Raider. Brian is also an illustrator and fine artist; his work has been shown in publications and galleries throughout the world. He lives in Foster City with his wife Susan and two children Victor and Evelyn. Please follow @brianhortonart on Twitter for news and updates.

New piece of Tomb Raider 15 art! &lt;3

15-Year Celebration: “Wolf Den” by Long Vo

“When I saw the demo for the new vision of Tomb Raider, I was instantly struck by how desperate and gritty the scenarios were. The original games always evoked a sense of awe, but none of those environments ever felt as threatening or ominous as the new game. My piece is a scene from one of the early demos where Lara is attacked by a grizzled wolf in its den.  I tried to go for a claustrophobic scene with the only space being the light from Lara’s torch — Lara being pulled into the dark by the wolf. I hope you enjoy it! ” - Long Vo

Camilla is amazing, and it was so much fun to work with her on this. I loved the old TR comics that had &#8220;chibi Lara&#8221; on the cover - seeing unique interpretations of such a huge icon is always rewarding. :)

15-Year Celebration: “The Depths” by Camilla d’Errico

“When I watched the new trailer, I thought of the moment when Lara drops from the ship into the water and what that would have been like for her. What would she have done? Simply let the crushing debris and water overwhelm her, or would she fight? Seems to me that a heroine needs to struggle to define her strength and this piece to me shows Lara’s strength. I hope that I have that kind of strength in me too.” - Camilla d’Errico

About Camilla d’Errico: Camilla d’Errico is an urban contemporary painter, illustrator, character creator and comic artist residing in Vancouver, BC. With roots in comics and manga stylings, Camilla’s beautiful work is seen on toys, clothes, accessories, and more. She has been published by Random House and Tokyopop (Avril Lavigne’s Make 5 Wishes), Simon &amp; Schuster (Camilla d’Errico’s BURN), Image Comics (Sky Pirates of Neo Terra, Fractured Fables), IDW (Swallow 5, Sparrow 13), and Dark Horse (Myspace Dark Horse Presents, Vampy Cat, Femina &amp; Fauna). Her literature-inspired graphic novel series, Tanpopo, is now published online by MTV and in hardcover format by Boom Studios (coming 2012).
Camilla is currently working on the graphic novel Helmetgirls: Origins. Camilla has distinguished herself as one of the breakthrough Pop Surrealism painters thanks to her ability to seamlessly weave manga and western styles with surrealist elements, wrapping it together with an extensive emotional palette. She has a unique touch – “West Meets East” – that bridges cultural and geographical boundaries, while remaining totally relevant to today’s varied audience. [Camilla’s Website]
Note from Meagan: Camilla is a favorite around the office, and we knew she’d lend a very unique take to our Tomb Raider celebration. If you appreciate Camilla’s art as much as we do, check out the Kickstarter campaign currently running to fund a hardcover copy of her passion project Tanpopo!
