One With Nature by danieldupre One With Nature by danieldupre
I wanted to depict Lara, more in a sense of becoming one with nature, her knowledge flowing down as well as having a rock solid will while still having a hopeful outlook into her newly acquired knowledge and the person she becomes during her journey. I also chose to use an area high upon the mountains to show a sense of achievement after going through her struggles. Cant really say much on the necklace because I don't want to throw spoilers. Finally I'm glad I did this and that I finally finished a personal piece and put as much effort into it as I do at work.

This is one truly astounding and unique entry in the contest. Very different and fresh. One of my favorites for sure.

It inspires me in getting better and work more with composition and symbolic meaning of graphic elements. Keep up the great work !!!

i'm glad you like it and that it serves you as inspiration, my biggest advice to get better is just look at things, people and other artists work. Just watching everyday things no matter how stupid they are ever (bathroom tiles, dirty glass, cracks on pavement anything really) will help you, i watch other peoples tutorials and speed painting videos and even if i didn't draw a single thing for months i find out that when i do draw again i'm much better. So when others say practice makes perfect it doesn't have to be drawing everyday but more like training your brain in to do so.

I am kind of lost for words here.
First I would like to say, This is the most assume piece of work that I have seen in the entire contest.
It portrays every requirement of the contest rules and more.
If you placed this rendering next to the Semi Finalists, they would just be pretty pictures.
This Render would Sale that Game.
On the other hand this makes me so mad.
The individual in the forum claiming your render did not get picked because you used a white background is full of BS.
It makes me want to smack the Judges on the back of the head and Scream "What were you thinking when you Missed this One".

I appreciate your support. I know, there's a few of us who feel that way, like I said to someone before, I think I would've been less disappointed if the pieces I thought were awesome made it to the list, but when the ones I was afraid of didn't make it I was outraged. Specially right when I first saw the original semi finalists and 2 of those where replicas of the original promo art, even now one of those still remains, even tho is "against the rules". But I guess when something is meant for you it finds its way, so I suppose someone deserves that prize more than the others. Again I thank you for your words.

I made a suggestion to DA. (not that they would listen to me).
To in Future Contests, to place a DA Logo on each Entry, to claim "This entry has been Judged".
Because I feel, like a lot of other participants, that many entries were never even looked at.
