Finished the little watercolour and ink Tomb Raider piece.
I was asked to create a custom Tomb Raider birthday card and this is part of its design.
Lara’s design is based off earlier game models.
This was quite fun to do since I’ve been a huge Tomb Raider fan for years, I may actually make a large Lara Croft ink and paint piece separate to this.
For the image on the card I used the artwork at just the watercolour stage- later I decided to finish the piece separately with the addition of acrylic ink.
I had some artwork off-cuts of cream and brown paper that had been inked which I didn’t to throw away. Of course I decided to make them into a bookmark.
The image is from The Graphics Fairy (as always). I used a little bit of ink to enhance her detailing and image transfered the quote “Finishing a good book is like leaving a good friend.”
On the back, over the top of the purple and white ink, I used a simple craft text stamp.
Now I kind of want to make a series of these and possibly sell them…maybe. Even if I don’t sell them, I’ll have some nice bookmarks for myself.
I need to do a little trial of setting up an online shop to sell a few things I’ve made recently.
