Nate and Lara - I Cannot Lose You by AlienFodder Nate and Lara - I Cannot Lose You by AlienFodder
I'm really not sure where this came from. Again, I wanted to give myself a bit of a challenge when it comes to posing the models, and this is what came out of it. I know it's a bit drastic but I felt like doing something dramatic after all the lovey-dovey stuff. :D

It was hard for me to put Nathan Drake in that situation because I love him to pieces and seeing him dead is rather upsetting. But no worries, Lara will somehow find a way to bring him back to life. :) In the meantime though, she's mourning him... :(

And if anyone knows a good method to draw tears over 3D models, please let me know.

Wow, you hit the spot right on. Your amazing at this, how do you do such work? But I have a suggestion, can you make them where they.. Kiss..?

Thank you so very much! I have to say that they are both very inspiring characters to me so that helps a lot. The work itself isn't that hard, it's mostly a lot of details to pay attention to in order to find the best poses possible for the 3D models I use. And I'll see if I can do something with them kissing. Portraying a kiss that looks natural is always a great challenge. :)

I'm extremely flattered that you think this is one of the best Uncharted/Tomb Raider artworks you've seen so far. To be honest with you, I had no idea it would generate such a positive reaction and great feedback from some of the people who have seen it. Again, thank you very, very much!

Thank you so much for the great feedback, hun. Most people have told me that the tears are fine so I think I'll just leave them as is. :) I guess sometimes I can be a little too demanding when it comes to my own work. :D

Why is this being featured by a Mass Effect group? 
Reply
:iconalienfodder:
AlienFodder Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Because I'm a contributor to the Mass-Effect-Fan-Club group and for some reason all my deviations are automatically added to the group. That being said, I deleted this one almost as soon as I posted it here but apparently it wasn't fast enough.

Thank you so very much! I'm really happy that you enjoyed what I did with your great model. :)

As for the tears, I simply used a very small white brush with a low opacity on a separate layer, then I turned the layer mode to "Overlay". I tried a lot of different things prior to that but this proved to be the only technique that really worked, mostly because the face of the model is so small.
