Toby Gard Originals!!!

Darrel Gallagher of Crystal Dynamics provided us with the first two original Toby Gard concept images of Lara.   The pencil sketches were drawn on approximate 11 X 17 paper and kept rolled up in a cardboard tube?  Yikes! Shouldn't they be behind a protective glass case surrounded by armed guards and ferocious attack dogs named Rommel und Gunther?   Or perhaps displayed nicely on my wall?   
A small sample of one of the images (above) shows a much younger looking Lara donning earrings and an interesting arm band.  Perhaps an on-the-job injury and a temporary field dressing to protect the wound. 

Hopefully we can uncover this mystery.

Wow, that looks amazing! Despite the earrings, she resembles a lot the actual Lara we got to know a little later.
