April 2023 edition
Welcome to my Lara’s Studio April edition! Today we welcome Carina! She works in 3D renders (her personal version created with Daz. A 3D posing program that is off the chart amazing.) of Lara Croft mostly from the classic games. Her work is stunning. Her concept of Lara is wonderful and feels like you are looking at Lara from another unseen part of one of the classic games! She has captured a sense of realism that could blend into Tomb Raider with no effort. Yes, her work is that good!
Now let’s get to know her better!
My name is Carina Berggren/tombraider4ever/ LaraCroft4ever, I will be 51 in April and I work pretty much
24/7 w my Tomb Raider/Lara Croft fanart. I work with my own Lara model made inside Daz studio using
very detailed head and body morphs shaping her down the smallest details like for instance the shape of
her nosewings. I feel I was born to make my cl Lara fanart, it’s the purpose of my life, a burning fire in my
blood to do this until I die.
Working with my art lifts me up, distracts me from my bad mental health, makes me feel joy as I work no
matter how hard things are. My Lara model is always waiting for me when I start Daz, always on my side,
having my back, always ready to have fun with me, saving my life every single day, both my Lara model and
the character of Lara.
I mainly make art of classic Lara Croft from the Core era games, but sometimes of LAU Lara also, rarely of
Reboot era L, but I have made a few of those also. Even if I feel that cl Lara is the true Lara I feel that Lara is
for everyone, no L left behind.
I live with my boyfriend – for me the most amazing, supportive, wonderful person in the world ♥, in our
house with our 2 fluffy cats in a small town in the north of Sweden. I can’t work due to my bad mental
health so that’s why I can work so much w my art, I have an infinite amount of energy for my art, I can have
a cold, bad back pain, feel strong anxiety and still work my ass off w my art, so no limit to my energy for my
art, in all other things: extremely low energy.
I don’t and most likely never will sell my art due to that selling fanart strictly is illegal and due to that art
theft – people stealing my art in all ways they can – and due to people inventing new way to steal art all the
time. So I can’t share unmarked art in any way , for the reason of protecting the thing that saves my life
every day – my ability and passion to make art. If no water marks and I feel like I work for the art thieves
and that would kill my ability to make art. So I’m protecting my mental health with the water marking, not
protecting an income from prints ect as I don’t sell my art in any way, never have, never will.
