How to Draw Lara Croft

Step 1.

Lets start this first step by drawing out the guidelines and circle shapes to form a solid frame of Lara Croft. Starting at the top draw an egg looking shape for her head, and sketch in the facial guidelines. Next draw a shapely long square for her torso. After you draw out the shapes of this character, start drawing out the guidelines for the legs, feet, and arms.

Step 2.

In this step what you are going to be doing next is drawing out the shape of her curvy body. Starting at the top draw out her shoulders and arms followed by her waist and hips. Next draw the shapes of her perfect looking legs and all the gadgets that are attached like the leg bands for her weapons. Move down a bit and draw the shape of her calf high boots and the rims of the socks. After your drawing looks like the one above you are ready to move down to the next step.

Step 3.

Okay here in step three of this tutorial you will be drawing out Lara Croft's face and apparel. Starting at the top (like always) sketch out the shape and position of her hair which is parted in the middle with strands hangs down the sides. Next sketch in her eyes, eyebrows, nose, and mouth. Now move down a bit and sketch in the lining for her shirt and straps that are placed under her pits and sit right on top of her shoulders. Sketch in the remanding lines for her arms and hands then draw in the gun on her left hip and the gadget on her right hip. Now move down and sketch in the details on her right boot like her laces and the sole.

Step 4.

Here in this step sketch in the line detail in her hair and detail her eyes a bit more also. Move down and sketch in the details in her shirt on the bottom and draw in the rest of her gadgets that are on her belt. Now finish off this step by drawing the details on her left boot the same way you did on the right. Erase all the guidelines and circle shapes you drew in step 1.

Step 5.

Here is what your finished Lara Croft should look like when you are completely done. All that you need to do now is color her in the way you do with all of your finished drawings. That will conclude this tutorial on how to draw Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. I hope you enjoyed yourself with this easy to learn tutorial.

Who is Lara Croft you ask? Well for starters she is one of the popular video game heroines around, and in 2006 she received a star on the “Walk of Game”. Lara Croft was designed by a gentleman named Toby Gard back in 1996 and wanted her to be an Englishwoman. As we all know she is a very athletic gal with a brain as well. She is also labeled at times as being reckless and dangerous. Like Indiana Jones, Lara Croft travels around the world in search of precious and priceless artifacts. Also like Indiana Jones she is an archeologist / adventurer who often puts herself in dangerous situations by searching around ancient tombs and ruins. Now, not only does this chic elude traps and solve the puzzles inside these rank tombs, she also fights off all kinds of enemies like dangerous animals real like dinosaurs or fiction like some mangled looking monster from another world, supernatural beings, villains, gangsters, and all other kinds of unpleasant creatures that evade her path. Lara Crofts image in the video game series has evolved quite a bit from beginning to present day. The very first game was called “Tomb Raider” followed by part 2 and 3. After those three versions continued to be a hit, a few more were released called “Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, Tomb Raider Chronicles, Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness, Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, and Tomb Raider: Underworld. In 2001 actress Angelina Jolie played the irresistible Lara Croft in an full length feature film, and in 2003 she brought Lara Croft to life again in the movie Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. In the first movie Angelina Jolie’s father Jon Voit also played her dad Lord Richard Croft. But it didn’t stop there, in 2007 an animated series was launched and Lara’s voice was done by Minnie Driver. Over the years this virtual babe has had several different models portray her for public appearances and promotions. No matter how you look at this chic, she remains an idol and heroine for woman and men alike. Gamers love playing her, woman love being her, and kids love looking up to her. This tutorial will show you how to draw Lara Croft from Tomb Raider step by step. I used a picture I found online as a reference tool. I hope you enjoy learning how to draw this hot virtual babe from the Tomb Raider series.
