Locomotive by kryttre Locomotive by kryttre
It started out, amazingly enough, as a 3D landscape and eventually deviated into this nifty locomotive image.

My most ambitious Lightwave project to date.

Hmm, nicely interesting shot of this.

Very Nice. Reminds me of a book I once read, though I can't remember the title, unfortunately. Also the old FPS "Outlaws", for some reason.

just a question... shouldn't that light be red because a train is comming the other direction

nice steamer, i like the heavy industrial setting. one thing, steam locomotives dont usually have diesel horns, theyd usually have two little lanterns where your horns are

I love this start something, add something, think what the hell, and finally it turns out to be a jewel like this. The details are really awesome. you also must have done a lot of research before this, because of all the details which are perfect as in reality.

very nice...looks like a video game...but one of the best rendered scene on this site..good work :) (Smile)

i guess everything good has already been said, the only "wrong" thing i see is that platform in front of the locomotive...maybe i'm wrong (i often am) but i've never seen a locomotive w/ a walkway along and in front of it...usually one of those cattle pusher triangular things... but hell, this is so good, i can't complain...
agarash Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2002
Can't really point out many flaws.. ;) (Wink)
Just the stones below the locomotive look a bit flat.. but oh, well.. ;) (Wink)

My goodness, a glowing CPU or two, 2 weeks of rendering and 4 years of work???????? What can I say? It's so fantastic, I'd better keep my mouth shut............
striving Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2002   Digital Artist
My goodness this is awesome work. The details are great. The piping is perfect. And the puddles add so much to the image.

Great job, your effort really paid off big time.

I would have called this a DD, but thats just me. :) (Smile)

this is good, man. great details. like the lighting. just, a good scene. very convincing as well.

the difference between theory and practice, in practice, is much bigger than the difference between theory and practice, in theory.

I am impressed that you acomplished so much with Lightwave. I never knew the program was quite so versitile. However you managed, I must give you a ton of credit, not only for skill as a modeller and texturer, but also for your ingenuity and skill with a program such as Lightwave.
You have chosen REGISIDE.
