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,

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.

Overall I can tell that you put much effort into this. The colors you used match well with the rest of the background and the shading is just enough to highlight the Giant's details while staying true to the background. One problem I do see though is that even through the effort you put into blending both elements the Giant looks slightly out of place especially because some of the strokes on the Giant, such as the torso, do not match with the more streamlined style of the background and the leg on the left is slightly under-proportioned to its right counterpart. Overall the piece manages to stir back nostalgia from the movie and is very well made. Hope that I helped a bit and keep up the good work :3

When my oldest son was four, we went to see the movie at the theater when it first came out.  Then we bought the VHS of it (DVD's weren't around then) and my son and I would watch it twice a day for about a week.  I grew sick of it.  But judging from this scene, I think IG must have saved Hogarth Hughes for the last time, because his power cells ran dry.  And the rest of his pieces couldn't join up with him anymore.  So he's now a rusting hulk of a bygone technology that could never be replicated on Earth, and his alien builders lost him among the stars during their clash with another power.

This is beautiful, the Iron Giant is one of the greatest movies ever, you bring it to glory with this wonderful picture
Thank you, for warming my heart,
Also, your art is FREAKIN RADICAL!!!!!

Heres an idea:
Have a painting of Yoshi (from super Mario brothers) as a Kaiju Godzilla thing
ALSO, DO FREAKIN ULTRAMAN TOO!!!!!!

I feel like there should be a little boy with a rather peculiar name on the beach there, it just seems like it's missing something without him. Of course it only makes sense that he should be absent, afterall who knows how long the giant's been here.
