Mallard by AdamBurn Mallard by AdamBurn
Now this is something very strange, it has not planets in it, no explosions, no aliens or marines, its just a serene painting of a train in an old fashioned station.
Seeing as Christmas was coming up and I am off to see me Grandparents whom I have not seen for some time I thought I would paint them something, I am hopeless with buying gifts, My granddad is quite the train lover so painting a train seemed like a smart choice.
For those of you who don't know it the train is a Mallard, a rather sleek looking locomotive. The whole image is based on a photo taken by my girlfriend whilst waiting around in York station, the image had a great dream like quality to it due partly to the overcast morning and the rather poor quality camera phone hehe, I wanted to capture that ethereal feel the image had so lots of bloom.
Took about 7-8 hours of work, all Photoshop, no photo assets.

I was looking for a hidden duck in this somewhere for like 5 minutes before I read the description.

...prrrrobably.

That said, I think the addition of a duck wandering around the train station would be awesome.

Hehe mine has a camera to, but it isnt that good, nor can you get the images off the camera so its kinda pointless.
