Castle in the clouds by ElenaDudina

1. Can you give us a little insight as to what goes on in your mind when you create your pieces?

Where do your ideas stem from?

Normally I have an idea in my head. I look for stocks that I think fits better with it and combine them. It is a slow work. Very sacrificed. Other times is a photo stock that impressed me, especially a model. I try to create an appropiate environment and I work to make the whole pretty and credible . It´s simpler.

2. Which of your pieces are you most fond of and can you tell us a little about them?

Tender hands

My work with more favs and comments.

I have always been interested in portraits. That moment in which nothing happened.
I prefer to work with non perfect images, non perfect faces.
A challenge.


This is one of those stocks that you can not refuse.
Again the movement is out. I love hummingbirds.
This work served as cover on a prominent book in Spain.

The Mermaid

Mermaids, a technical challenge.

I like to fantasize and photoshop is the perfect tool to give life to fairies, dragons, mermaids.

It was time to open the angle of my camera and my subjects.
People lose prominence.
We have a duty to our planet.

The last quiet place

A sort of Shangri-La.
Wanted the towers of the background seem to be there long before people.

Deep set

A single person often seems a little thing. So better teamwork. I have to think about that.
I had long tried to make a sunken ship, without result.
I am very patient and persistent and sometimes that gets results.

Polar Express

A train, snow, cliffs... I had to do something.
Perspective is one of my current challenges.

Study, practice a lot, work hard, never discourage, try to be yourself. Always use the highest quality material.
