View Full Version : Train Drawing for Mural

This is a Bryce/Coreldraw piece that I created for the guidelines of a mural I am getting ready to paint. I thought I would post it here so you guys could get a peek.

Cool idea to use Bryce as a sketch tool...especially for a mechanical subject like the train. This should make an interesting mural!

the image looks great man excelent job.

Mural on wallboard is going to be 7'6"x12'.

I showed the client the picture, they didn't like the angle of the engine. So now I have started building a 3D train completely in Bryce!

Here it is, unfinished and not in the correct angle.

:D Aloha Coolray!
So crisp is your art! Very nice train! Both of them. Bummer that you had to start over, eh? Ah tis the nature of commission work!

Well, I'm spending lots of hours on the new train. I found a side view that will help me get the dimensions right. This will be a long weekend, trying to build the 3D version of the train on the computer. But in the end it will be worth it!

I like it :) plus I love trains :)
great work :)

I like both of them. The backgroung goes good with the train in the fisrtone. I like the angle of the train in the second one. :clap:

I like the angle of the second one too. Problem will be if I can make it fit into the mural properly. With some more work I will post an update of the train.

Most impressive. You must have great patience creating it in Bryce!

Hah! I have patience like a hummingbird! I'm here, then there. You can't keep me into one thing that long. Bryce has been tough for me to stick to it, like I have with this project. I am learning patience with program. And that's hard for me to do!

If I were your client, I would have gone with the first one. I love images that seem to be coming out of the painting or where it seems that you can walk into the painting.

I agree! That was what we had planned on, but they just saw it as too cartoonish. So I am still working on the 3D model, and hoping that it will convince them to go ahead without furture delay. My intent here is to kee the tracks coming out of the mural as they are in the first concept image. But then to push the train back some so that it curves around and you can see the side of the engine a little more. The background will not change, and the other areas of the image will basically stay the same. But I will try to create a more convincing engine for them.

Other than that, we are plugging along!

Very nice train Terry,

Here is the train with some modifications to the engineers cab, and I also lengthened the train, and added a larger cylinder to the front of the cab.

I still have alot to do on the steam lines, and the wheels, then on to the minor details.

Very nice! This one is very good. I really like the first one but you gotta do what the client wants.....This one is still awesome!

10-09-2002, 04:16 PM
Thanks Crazy_Cat!

The angle in what you are seeing, is not the angle that I am going to leave the train. I will turn it so it will be more like the first image, only slightly turned as to view the side some too. Not like the last image. I am showing this as a way to let you see how complete this process is. This is a 3D, so it will turn at any angle I desire.

I hope it works, if not I have a neat train to play with!

I like the original one much more, but I have always been a train buff, and like to see the monsters coming down the track :D Maybe your clients have never ridden the rail before.
