Dragonbreakers' Dawn

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Esther Wetzel

The inspiration for this painting came from Alexiuss' deviantART journal entry "Hell on earth (Visual installment 01)" from April 19, 2008. Check out this collection of photographs of the shipbreakers in Bangladesh! It is both shocking and fascinating how these people live and work and break up gigantic ship wrecks lying on the beach to bring every piece of metal back to some use. These shipbreakers are recycling workers in the hardest and most visual way I can imagine. The idea for this painting grew slowly after having seen Alexiuss' visual installment and after having learned about a recycling-themed contest of the painters' club in DA. However, since I am most happy when I can paint fairies, unicorns, songgryphons, or dragons, I twisted the theme of the shipbreakers a bit. ;-) -- 36cm x 22cm, acrylics on heavy structured acrylic painting cardboard, May 2008
