Before and After Pictures of "Hidden Kingdom Farm"

Here is a look at the before and after shots of my recent work "Hidden Kingdom Farm". I take my own original photos to start as the basis of the digital artwork.


Then I experiment with digital effects and post-production on the computer. Usually this is a process that takes many days of work.

Afternoon Day Dream : How it's Made

Here's a look at the artistic process for making my "Afternoon  Day Dream" picture.

Lakeside Day Dream, by Larry Carlson, 2010.

For some pictures that have people in them, I use models that I shoot in a photo studio, and then later on the computer I merge them together into one image.

To bring the image to life. I then digitally paint with my electronic brush on the photo, apply digital effects and overly design elements. Sometimes it takes working on and off the image for several days, or weeks, other times it happens all in one day.
