In the Tomb Raider Reborn contest, we challenged you to bring the new Lara Croft to life, based on the trailer and asset pack. We saw amazing renditions of this fierce survivor, showcasing Lara's inherent resourcefulness and intuition. The competition was stiff, but our judges narrowed it down to the top 25. These will now be sent to Square Enix's Senior Art Director Brian Horton to choose the final three Winners. Congratulations to the top 25 Semi-Finalists below!

The remaining 22 Semi-Finalists will receive:
  • A Tomb Raider XBOX 360 Wireless Controller
  • 3-Month Premium Membership
  • 2,000 deviantART Points

You can see a lot of effort went into these illustrations.  A lot of inspiration.

I am not doing anything with Deviant Art again. Bottom line it was fun creating my piece, but the way the contest was handled was very poor. Step it up next time DA staff and try and respect your community of artists.

I don't get why people are so upset with this contest. 25 very good entries were chosen.
And on top of that, everyone can clearly see that this was a marketing gig for the new Tomb Raider game. So knowing this, it is really up to everyone if they want to enter or not. Nobody forces them to.

So it took the judges about 6 days to select 25 entries from a total of 5000. And it has been 8 days after and they have not selected 3 from a total of 25. Judges, get to judging. And I keep saying that not all 5000 images where judged, they just picked 25 and went "oh, we already have 25"

5000 entries!? aint nobody got time for that! quick pick that sh*t!
Agreed, very poor way for DA to handle their fan base and the community that makes DA what i is.

Worst of all that is happening in this competition, is to see team DA not explain or resolve these problems ... One art to be is subjective, But there was a briefing, there were these rules and totally disregarded ... will the company or even Brian Horton this knowing of these problems?

had over 5000 entries, I think it matters little, their duty was to see ALL ... not see is a sign of disrespect to the participating artists ... and the end result comes out tomorrow and the silence was what the DA gave us ...

I saw on the facebook fan page they posted the game's semi finalists, I still think it could this not go unpunished. not right, not fair ...
Behind you 100% on this comment, I think they need to answer to the community. We may be wrong, we may be right( Im leaning towards we are right) but I think they need to answer for the way they handled their fans entries and the overall DA community.
