The Polish artist Jakub Rozalski has produced an mesmerizing series of mecha and werewolf infested scenes of WW1 in Eastern Europe. Most of the scenes show idyllic rustic landscape of Eastern Europe, so you would see Polish Gorales enjoying the view on the valley with gigantic Mecha Robots paroling the area. It’s a wonderful eye candy that jammed together the folk culture of 20th century and futuristic Mecha war machinery.
It will surely remind you of famous Star Wars series, but no it isn’t and we would dare to say it looks so much better too, as his art ideas could fuel one whole interesting movie with a story of it’s own.
“to commemorate this sad and tragic period in history, in my own way, to light on this parts of history that usually remain in the shadows of other events… remember and honor the history, but live in the present.”
“I like to mix historical facts and situations with my own motives, ideas and visions. … I attach great importance to the details, the equipment, the costumes, because it allows you to embed painting within a specified period of time.”
If you are interested in his work check out the “The World of Scythe” which is an art-book that will immerse you into his Mecha alternate history world and his board game Scythe, which was born as a Kickstarter campaign. More info: Artstation, Facebook, Tumblr
