Trojan is thirsty

One of my own this time.
Taken at Dicot Railway Centre during the summer last year. The quality is not that great, it was a miserable rainy overcast day, but after playing with it the pic has come out OK (at least I think so).

They have a short working line there and this chap had been going up and down for hours, so he got a slight thirst.

Used Lucisart but not for everything there is a lot of Photoshopping going on in there.

Peter

Here is a link to their site if anyone is interested in steam engines.
It's a great place to take the kids.

Re: Trojan is thirsty

Fun pic to play with - thanks Peter.

AHB (pencil) and lots of "post" work. Had to "scrunch" it down to 100K, but it seems to have survived well.

Re: Trojan is thirsty

Ro I know what you mean about the scrunching down, the 100k limit can be a killer.
Thats a nice one, and it has survived, very nice texture to it.
Here is another one from the same place, a more traditional type of picture of a steam engine.
One rule though - enjoy doing it.

Peter

Re: Trojan is thirsty

Way too lazy tonight, so a silhouette is due. I attached both the PNG file and the zipped vector (SVG) file for those who have an SVG viewer.

Nice textures there, I've been struggling with textures lately and can't quite get them how I would wish.

lkroll

Very smooth silhouette there I don't think that was as easy as you make it look.

palms1

Very nice - did you get the simplifier plugin?

Steve

He may be related, he does visit this place every Christmas (With Santa)
