Error: You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'my description here' at line 1

EDIT: Seems that apostrophies aren't very liked. For example if i type it's and i'm when submitting and image an error comes up.

How do you go understanding that? Im not the most useful person with a pen and thats why Im not in the 2D section :)

Anyway, Ive decided to go with a massive locomotive with a city in the background. More details to come...

Looking good so far. Can't wait to see the lgihting your going to go for. Keep it going, good luck!

09-05-2005, 03:48 PM
cant wait, its a great idea, i can see it already

If you get the Grandness of the train to really stand out and give an impression of greatness and speed I think this is going to be an excellent piece!

I love trains.. I like the sketch and the view you placed the train. Good perspective view to be spectacular as well.

Just another angle. Haven't been working on this for the past few days. I just found some useful reference material as well so I'll be getting back into it soon.

If you happen to of any good reference sites let me know :)

09-13-2005, 09:15 AM
Good stuff, and solid modeling. Is the train based on something real, or is it your own design? Looks very good at any rate.

Thanks James. It's based on my own design but I'm still using real references.
