I began this illustration well over a month ago after having come across a pretty cool photograph of a train. I took my time with it as I wanted it to be a very detailed illustration but also because I wanted to experiment with materials as I went along.
The initial illustration was the longest part as I had to transfer the image to an Illustration board, ink it, apply additional detail with markers, then paint over top that work and add the finishing touches with colored pencil. I'm very pleased with the end results. Sadly I've yet to take a photograph that does it justice as a lot of what I love are in the details which tend to get lost in the pictures.
