Northwest Passage by MichaelO Northwest Passage by MichaelO
It's been a while since I've done scenery like this - mostly because it is so time consuming but I think this one was worth the time. I was inspired by the movie 'Behind Enemy Lines' which has a cool scene with an old statue standing alone in the snow.

I used the name Northwest Passage as reference to the time eons ago when Alaska and Russia were connected land masses. Seeing how I am from North America and the original photo of the model was taken in Russia, I thought it was an appropriate title.
Thanks to those who reminded me of The Neverending Story also.

If you know my work you'll see a lot of similarities between this image and Freedom's Edge and Trajian's Outpost. I think that is because it is rare that I do this sort of work and I wanted to stay within my comfort zone.

Model: Nastya Fedorova

:bulletblue: Favorite comment to date: Wow, your work is incredible! Everything in your gallery has its own flavor and message. You create this scene so beautifully... I get such a strong feeling of peace and solitude from this piece. I love it. :hug: ~xblackcherryx
