My Entry for this contest!
I wanted a simple yet bold poster design that get's right in your face (and hers). This is all about LARA and her spirit. This beautiful girl who's been through hell and has come out a different person. She's been put through the ringer but she's not worn down or broken, she's com out stronger. You can see the fire in her eyes, the proverbial phoenix reborn from the ashes.
I really wanted to focus on her eye after all, eyes ARE the window to the soul and isn't is what it's all about? Lara finding out who she really is inside. I also chose to have her clutching her pendent rather than a weapon because it's more about her personal journey and the story. For me, the face says it all.
I'm thoroughly satisfied with how it turned out and I think this is a great representation of the new gritty Lara. I hope you enjoy it as well!
