Robert Jahns is an award-winning digital artist, professional photographer, and art director whose work has been in the spotlight for a while. He is best known for his surreal digital photo manipulations that gathered him over a million followers on Instagram.

Robert says he has been creating since he was 6 years old and got into photography art and photo editing 16 years ago. "Creating art always was and is my passion. With my unique art, I’m able to show the world the visuals I have in mind. I can inspire so many people worldwide in a positive way," he told Bored Panda.

When asked how he chooses the images to edit, Robert walked us through his whole creative process: "For every concept, I need several different interesting photos which I combine in post-processing to create a new piece that looks as real as possible. I always try lots of images to see which works best and which images work best emotion-wise. I always know what images I need for my works of art but I still try many different images to see what works best." The artist uses Photoshop, Lightroom, and various smartphone apps to produce stunning pictures. Robert says that when it comes to digital art, his biggest inspiration is his own creative mind.

In September, the artist will be releasing his first illustrated storybook called "Traumwelten" in Germany. He also has plans on releasing the book in English later this year.

What an engaging picture! My eyes keep getting drawn to explore the depth of the clouds and their reflection, then returning to the figure in the boat, and back again. But it's also such a peaceful, serene image...I would love to have this picture on any one of my walls - could spend hours in contemplation....

Imagine living in there. Bit scary walking across the bridge, but it's bound to be magical.

:) Amazing! I wish I could make such a pic where the lit city and the milky way is shown... while we had hard times to make pics in the observatory because city lights disturbed...

That looks like more balloons than it took to float the house in "Up".
