Impressionnant. Il est très rare de trouver un style réaliste qui tienne la route comme le tien. Et je confirme, ton anatomie est plus que convaincante.

Woot! Somebody able to draw Lara in a correct archery pose. With enough muscle to draw a bow of sufficient strength to pierce armor. AND with a fitting arrow length! A rare sight indeed :) Thank you.

Also incredibly detailed. Well done.
*love this*

Thank you so much! I really tried my best to do the archery pose accurately. I'm not a specialist or anything, but I read an article some time ago about how some characters in movies are supposed to be master archers and the actors who portrait them can't even convincingly hold the bow correctly, Hawkeye from the Avengers being a good example of that.

You're welcome!
I shoot a longbow myself, that's why I'm so sensitive about this, heh.
And you're right about the 'master' archers. Katniss in Hunger Games is another one...
her archery pose is more or less correct most of the time, but the bow she uses is pathetically weak and completely unbalanced:
the way the arrows wobble into their target slow enough to see the flight path over just
20 feet or so... they wouldn't be able to pierce a wet paperbag in reality (and probably only hit that bag by accident).
;)

Anyway, rambling off. Thanks for a great piece.
