Since being created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll, Adobe Photoshop has become the go-to software in the digital arts industry.
To say that digital art today wouldn’t be where it is if not for Photoshop would be fitting. After all, Photoshop is so widely used that, even though there are alternatives out there, it remains the superior product. Literally nothing else comes close.
Despite its popularity though, not all artists are equally skilled when it comes to using Photoshop.
Just like when creating art, there are just some artists who are more talented at manipulating images using Photoshop compared to others. Case and point, Viktoria Solidarnyh.
The Ukrainian digital artist’s mastery of Photoshop is just so amazing. So much so that you’d think that her photo manipulations were literally ripped straight out of a fairy tale. But, mind you, they weren’t. They were created by her using Photoshop.
The best part? She doesn’t even use related photos to achieve the effect.
What Viktoria does is that she combines multiple ordinary images to create the mystical photographs that have since led her to becoming viral.
Victoria also isn’t afraid to show her viewers her process.
On her Instagram account, you’ll see a complete deconstruction of each of her works, which details just how intricate and thorough the process is.
