Massive Steampunk Train by Morgoth883 Massive Steampunk Train by Morgoth883
Part of our 3D modelling project was to create a traction engine from scratch. This made me briefly obsessed with steam engines and I drew up this image of a massive steam punk train. I was going to do it from various orthographic angles with the intention of modelling it in 3d. However, I didnít really have enough knowledge of what went where on a train and the transport museum was closed for refurbishment. So this is all I managed, from many reference photoes of trains, both real and fictional. Currently it still looks a bit too much like one of the reference images, but that will change eventually, Iím sure. There are also some scale issues - the railings donít match up with the doors.

It never happened, in the end ;_; I got as far as making some accurate orthographic sketches of it, but my lack of knowledge regarding real trains caught up with me XD
