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.

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

It's an absolutely beautiful interpretation of the original! Of course an abandoned piece of alien technology gives it a great air of mystery and passage of time too
