A huge gamer and Tomb Raider fanatic, Ash’s passion for the latter started with Tomb Raider Chronicles in 2000. He then finished every previous Tomb Raider game within 3 years just in time to play then newly released the Angel of Darkness.

Tomb Raider hugely changed his life which involved meeting amazing friends worldwide (also visiting them and hosting them) and moving to the UK.

Let alone that Ash learned 3DS Max, Photoshop and other useful software just because he wanted to create renders with Lara like guys at Core did.

In early 2000s Ash started making renders in 3DS max and people seemed to like those (that was before XNA Lara which obviously made anyone capable of creating a render these days).

Ash loves the original Core Design’s version of the game though he does find the latest (2013) reboot enjoyable 🙂 You can read about the impact that Tomb Raider franchise had on his life in this blog post.
