Abandoned Iron Giant At Lake In Swiss Mountains by fantasio Abandoned Iron Giant At Lake In Swiss Mountains by fantasio
Full view is duty!

Explanation below: please read !!

The landscape is originally a painting from Aleksey Savrasov - check out his amazing work:…
The robot is from the movie The Iron Giant by Warner Bros.

The landscape work is in Public Domain, according to:…
What does that mean?…

The whole piece had to be reinterpreted (or better said, it is completely re-painted in Photoshop) as the reference image from the landscape was only available in a very low resolution, thats why it may differ a bit. Also painting the Iron giant in a way it looks abandoned and overgrown was a fun part.

Why did I do that?
Actually the intention behind this is to learn from the old masters, I don´t want to limit myself to mastercopies - but something new inspired by the old AND the new.

This is part of a study-series, called "Ancient Kaiju project" (Iron Giant is probably not a Kaiju, but it certainly fits the scheme of big things)

I like popculture and I love traditional art, so this project came naturally to me.

If you want it as a wallpaper, feel free to hit the download-button to get the 1900x1000 px version.

Hey thanks! No plans on prints online, the situation around copyright and public domain is really a terrain I don´t want to mess with.
