As a digital artist, I create images that are usually almost unimaginable, optical illusions, interesting concepts, and fantasy worlds. For this, I have to have tools to achieve my visions and this is where my retouching background comes into play. I have been using Photoshop for over 20 years and I know plenty of tricks and tips on how to achieve needed things to produce images just to the way I want.

I wanted to show you my Before & After images so you can see what is made in post-production and what kind of raw image I had to start with. In addition to this, every project will include plenty of planning and sketching so the process of creating this kind of image is sometimes long.

I try to shoot also all the elements my self, but quite often I need to rely on stock images and sometimes 3D elements. Typically I use Adobe stock as my stock image source, as it is integrated inside of Photoshop and this makes the process so much faster and easier to test out different elements in my pictures.

So here is the latest selection of my Before & After images, enjoy. You can find also some older before & after images below the first gallery.

    I don’t normally comment on this site, but those are really neat. I don’t do model photography, nor this level of digital art, so it’s interesting for me to see what elements were real vs not.
