Artist gives Lara Croft a Borderlands-like makeover

Recommended Videos

File this one under “Neat.” Freelance artist Ankit Garg has done a number on Tomb Raider‘s Lara Croft, giving her a total makeover that would make Tyra Banks and her America’s Next Top Model crew proud. (Miss J confirms this as “fierce.”)

While Garg says he was inspired by games like Fallout and id software’s upcoming Rage, we’ve been playing a lot of Borderlands lately and can’t help but make the connection to Gearbox’s chosen art style. Garg even threw in a little Iron Man for good measure, with some sort of light/mirror thing on her hand and gun… sure, why not?

According to the freelance artist’s online resume, his work has appeared in retail products you might heard of called The Beatles: Rock Band and Fallout 3.

We know it was just for fun, but we wouldn’t complain if this new bad ass Lara appeared in an upcoming Tomb Raider game. Looks like Eidos already has that one on lock, though.
