Evolving technologies create new opportunities in art by blurring the barrier between the artist’s imagination and final artwork. With today’s possibilities to edit and augment any photo by clicking on a few buttons in an app within seconds, it seems that anyone can be an artist. So we want to bring to the spotlight an artist who still relies on her skills and avid creativity and masterfully uses good trusty Photoshop in her time-consuming artwork that looks like it belongs on the cover of a book or movie.

Ukrainian digital artist Viktoria Solidarnyh reveals that Photoshop is far from magic by uncovering what goes into her fairytale-like photo manipulations. She combines multiple ordinary and often unrelated images to create mystical parallel worlds. By deconstructing each of her final works into puzzle pieces, she shows how intricate and thought-out her work is.

"I want to express my unlimited gratitude for the article published two years ago by Bored Panda. Thanks to it, I believed in my strength and talent!" the artist told Bored Panda.

Dive into a gallery of Viktoria’s newest magical images with an exclusive insight into how they were created!

Nope, doesn't work for me. My scientific mind instinctively knows the toddler can't lift the teapot that way, it's too heavy.

The reflection doesn't seem to match, or is it the reflection of the viewer?
