Tomb Raider Gold edition collection cards by alienmaskedcreature is one of the most elaborate entries in the contest when it comes to idea and concept! Apart from the obvious technical skill input to so many detailed sceneries, the best thing about this entry is that it symbolically represents the golden era of Tomb Raider, hence why all the main motives are painted in gold! But that's not all, there's a special secret in one of the cards, where the Egyptian hyeroglyphs on the pillar actually spell Lara Croft Tomb Raider! Kudos for skill and creativity
Tomb Raider Playing Cards by JhoCorrea is a great example of using simplicity and turning it into something stunning – The design that catches your eye right from the thumbnail. Exciting shape language, clean and striking design along with very meaningful concept make this entry a definite gem of the competition. Very stylized and unique, this amazing set represents a journey of a Tomb Raider overcoming obstacles like traps, puzzles and enemies to finally obtain the main prize – the artifact!
That's right, these 2 awesome raiders got the same amount of points and they will both
receive:The Tomb Raider: Ten Thousand Immortals novel, 6 months premium membership
Our winning piece by Croft094 is truly amazing and unique! The artist revolved the idea around basic playing cards incorporating many of the faces of Lara Croft from classic to reboot. He used an amazing technique of just paint splashing to create his artworks which was original and brave! Turned out more than well, this was our top favorite when it came to the overall design - the cards were made to look both modern and archaic and each card individually looks like a minimal movie poster!
This participant will receive: Golden Edition of Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
(Lara Croft mini figurine, the map of the Overworld, the Art Book, the game itself for the platform of their choice
