This week In Focus is showcasing the outstanding photo manipulations of =ELENADUDINA from deviantart.com
Elena Dudina was born in Russia and spent her childhood moving from place to place. Her father was a military fighter pilot, so the family moved a lot – from Estonia to Latvia, even from the Arctic to the Ukraine, spending seven years in Siberia.
Elena now lives in Madrid, Spain with her Spanish husband.
She started producing photo manipulations about two years ago using Photoshop Elements. She ploughed through many tutorials and learnt a lot through trial and error. After about a year, she took a couple of photo manipulation courses and bought Photoshop CS3.
In an interview with BeCreativeMagazine.com, Elena gives this advice to aspiring digital artists: “Just create with much love, hard work and patience. That´s what I consider basic to begin with. Find your own style and feel”
You can find the links to discovering more about Elena and her art after the showcase.
We start off with a photograph of Elena:
Elena obviously tends towards fantasy in her favoured genre of art as the following examples of her outstanding, inspirational work show – sit back and enjoy.
Mirar sin ver
Entre velas y velos
Cuna de flores
Esperando a mi amor
Cancion de las flores
Las hojas secas
Mar de rocas
Una noche mas
Una luz lejana
Mi vida en el bosque
El bosque magico
Musica en la noche
El columpio de la charca
