This is a painting I did for my step dad, he loves this train. I don't know the first thing about trains and pretty much had to wing it. =]

This is fitting for the most interesting locomotive chase in American History.

Theres a web site that has great "Detail" pictures of that engine, can't quite remember what is is though. I'm working on a scale model of it and I use the site for color references.

For not knowing anything about trains, you guessed all the right details, man. And you make trains look like they belong in Winterous mountains.

ohhh..great painting! I like the almost greyscale colouring and the brush technique! Lots of detailing on the train too! Bravo, it turned out really well!

thanks a million, I had it printed, and they printed it all wrong and the colors were screwed up, etc. I tried to explain to them what to do but they couldn't get it, finally I gave up. =[ Seems like they'd have to be taught how to use printers and color settings, etc, if they, you know, worked at a print place.

ahahaha... I'm sorry man! sometimes I wonder why people works in a job they are not capable to do. :)
I hope you'll find some other place to print your stuff. I also want to print my last works.
Above all the pianist.
Oh..I didn't tell you, my work "Edge of the World" was chosen!! yuhuuu! Over 320 partecipants only 30 made it, and I did it! I'm so happy! :lol:
