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.
