Train To Botanica by Roseum Train To Botanica by Roseum
Have been working on and off with this for a long time now and it feels good to be able to show it to you at last!
Ill probably make some updates sometime on it improving certain elements.

Felt i was missing a good train painting and wanted to make it one of my best pieces.

I love botany and steampunk combined...it should be some sort of steampunk sub-genre...lets call it...umh...botanypunk..no...FLORAPUNK.
Where steampunk is combined with botanical gardens, greenhouses, huge tree cities, decorative flower fabrics, weird and exotic plants....a bit more art nouveau inspired and more organic.

Created from skratch in photoshop, no photo references used.
Here are some early sketches:

This is super rad! I've been looking for inspiration for art nouveau meets technology, and this is an amazing example. Thanks so much for sharing it! :)

If you really like art nouveau, you should check out solarpunk!

No worries! Glad I could help you find it. I only found solarpunk by chance a couple years ago and have been obsessed since. LOL

Good Heavens, the engine itself is a work of art; if only they designed my city bus with this aesthetic! You just earned a +Watch. =)

Florapunk sounds like exactly the kind of thing I'd be into. :happybounce:  Love the worlds you design; the color scheme and detail on the train are gorgeous!

Very beautiful ! This artwork is just amazing ! The details are awesome to, they remind me of elven designs. And, I also love this idea of florapunk, cause it combines a few things that I really love: steampunk, the Victorian era and nature. Very nice work. I definitely want to see more artwork like this one.

I can fully agree with your sentiment, in having a major fascination not just with nature, but with the Steampunk aesthetic, as both natural woodlands and Victorian technology and mannerisms resonate with me.

While I enjoy quite a lot of your artwork (and have saved several selections), this is by far an away my favorite of them all =] It's so fantastical and idyllic, it's almost heartbreaking that such a place doesn't really exist.

And as far as a sub-genre of Steampunk, that would indeed make an interesting take, especially playing off of the anachronistic aspect of Steampunk by creating an alternate timeline where the Industrial Revolution was founded through clean, renewable energy rather than coal and other fossil fuels, and designed to balance with nature rather than to plunder it.

Again, your artwork in general is fantastic and really strikes a personal chord with me, and this is certainly the most enjoyable for me =] Very well done!

Its true that its sad that such a place does not exist. I would've loved to live in a beautiful setting like this. And, indeed, it would've also been nice if the industrial revolution would have been designed to balance with nature like you said. Things would have been so different. Our planet would have been far less polluted at least.
