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: www.wikiart.org/en/aleksey-sav…
The robot is from the movie The Iron Giant by Warner Bros.

The landscape work is in Public Domain, according to: www.wikiart.org/en/aleksey-sav…
What does that mean? fairuse.stanford.edu/overview/…

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.

cheers,
fant

Daily Deviation

Given 2015-04-15
Wonderful fan wallpaper of Iron Giant. Excellent choice of colors and details, and a well-captured mood make the piece a truly amazing piece to behold.

Oh my gawd... THIS IS BEAUTIFUL.A

The Iron Giant has grown to be one of my favorite animated films of all time, and this spectacular artwork proves most of it. Although the originality is a whole star lower because there is many fan art of this character, including Hogarth. But this has to be the best drawn out of them all. The landscape is gorgeous and realistic, the Iron Giant itself has personality and outstanding detail to it, although the left arm could have been a bit higher raised. Heck, despite being machine, you gave him a perfect expression to capture the moment! I am amazed by this fantastic artwork. Also, good job on the Daily Deviation. You deserved it. Instant fave. Here's a cookie.

The Iron Giant would be considered a Kaiju in loose terms, but, damn, man.

Right in the childhood... this is fantastically gorgeous, but now I have to watch this movie, haha. Instant favorite, and, congratulations on the well-deserved Daily Deviation.

Hehe, hence the "abandoned" tag which makes things appear more like a monster - from a distance;)

Way too underrated, particularly with the unconventional way they portray him as a robot that values human life.

But he didn't land in Switzerland. He landed on an Icelandic glacier.

Greenland is the one with the ice, Iceland is the one with the green.

What does that have to do with anything? He still landed on an Icelandic glacier. Also, Iceland is only green during the summer. On winters it is icy.

What does him not landing originally in Switzerland have to do with anything?
