– I painted this for my brother for his eighteenth birthday.
I found the reference of this steampunk scenery on Pinterest and I was motivated to paint it. It was something new and different for me, because I’ve never painted something in brown tones or old technical/steampunk stuff, even though I like it. Probably because usually these kinds of pictures are really detailed and I am pretty lazy. This painting took me 6 hours which is little time for such a big format.
The title I allowed myself to give this painting came to my mind because of the perspective, I guess. The environment looks dark and kinda threatening. The huge walls rise on both sides from bottom to top and then there’s this lone warrior in the middle, following his path with determination.
