Q: Was Brian Horton inspired by the face of Camilla Luddington in Rise of the Tomb Raider?
A: While Camilla Luddington now lends extra emotion through Mova’s impressive facial capture technology, Lara’s facial model is an evolution of the one in Tomb Raider, and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. We’ll go into the process of bringing Lara to life on next-gen in-depth at a later date.
Q: Will Simone Rene be the final model (body) in ROTTR?
A: As Brian addressed in the most recent podcast, he often blends photography and renders together for key pieces of promotional art. Simone Rene was a model for a pair of these sessions. As with the above, Lara’s in-game model is an evolution of the one in Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, with improvements in fidelity and realism. It is not based off a single person.
