   Rise of The Tomb Raider : Descent Into Legend Trailer

Here's the trailer of new , upcoming Tomb Raider game. Even after playing Uncharted I always missed that feel of Tomb Raider. Finally the wish of playing next gen, Tomb Raider will be completed this year.

The visuals are spectacular. It's still unclear how much puzzle oriented this version is going to be. But Lara Croft certainly looks badass in this rendition too.

Lara will be facing deadly traps, wild animals and the harsh weather while uncovering secrets that come with huge stakes.

The trailer of Rise of the Tomb Raider is promising enough.

It will be available for Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 10, 2015.

For PlayStation 4 and PC, it will arrive in 2016.

And below you can watch the six minute gameplay of Rise of The Tomb Raider

Alike trailer from psl on Vimeo.

Alike is a 3D short animated film about "Copi, a father who tries to teach the right way to his son, Paste". The main idea of this short, which is parenting is very appealing since it is a topic that is very close to a lot of people. The trailer seems to show the right amount of information and leaves the viewers with curiosity that make them want to see what happen next in the story. The trailer was shown for the first time last July at Mundos Digitales International Animation Festival and awarded Best Animated Short and Special Audience Prize.

I like the use of the colours in this short. In general, we could see that warm and cool colours are used mainly in the environment. But when we look closely, these colours also seem to determine which characters that are important in the scenes. Moreover, the main characters, their props and the important area have higher contrast as well. Even though the short is not colourful, I think the theory of colour is being used very effectively in this short. It also becomes part of the storytelling when Copi's body colour switches into the same colour as the background characters in the workplace.

Check out Alike's artwork and animation tests and progress here.
Alike is directed by Daniel Martinez Lara, co-directed by Rafa Cano Mendez and teamed up ex Pepe-School-Land students in this project.

Below is one of the animation tests, showing the shot progression from the animatic until polishing. I also think this clip shows a great example for a correct use of the video reference, where the animators understand the essence of the shot and did not rotoscope the movement.
