TEN Collection from Fotolia is back with work from Russian creative retouch artist Alexey Samsonov, aka Somistar.

Somistar’s work transports you to a far away, fantastic and mysterious place somewhere between illusion and reality.

“I get a lot of inspiration when I travel, when I talk with new people, learn about their cultures, when I see new places. And of course music inspires me too,” he admits.

Samsonov created a natural atmosphere, filled with warmth, silence and a bit of magic by playing with superimposed layers, colours and shadows, and using light effects for each element.

The final step is the work with the colour spectrum of the whole illustration, so that everything matches.

He describes his work for TEN Collection as “motivation and inspiration to draw the island where I was travelling to, as I imagined it.”

His work will be available for free and for 24 hours in PSD format, on 10 July 2013 at www.tenbyfotolia.com.
