Have been working on and off with this for a long time now and it feels good to be able to show it to you at last!
Ill probably make some updates sometime on it improving certain elements.

Felt i was missing a good train painting and wanted to make it one of my best pieces.

I love botany and steampunk combined...it should be some sort of steampunk sub-genre...lets call it...umh...botanypunk..no...FLORAPUNK.
Where steampunk is combined with botanical gardens, greenhouses, huge tree cities, decorative flower fabrics, weird and exotic plants....a bit more art nouveau inspired and more organic.

Very unique design for a train engine. I would never have come up with a design like this.👏🙂👍 just need to see what face and personality it would have on the island of Sodor with Thomas and company and it should be all set.

This is super rad! I've been looking for inspiration for art nouveau meets technology, and this is an amazing example. Thanks so much for sharing it! :)

If you really like art nouveau, you should check out solarpunk!

Thank you! Had never heard of Solarpunk before, but it sounded like my type of world, thanks for making me awear. :thumbsup:
No worries! Glad I could help you find it. I only found solarpunk by chance a couple years ago and have been obsessed since. LOL

Good Heavens, the engine itself is a work of art; if only they designed my city bus with this aesthetic! You just earned a +Watch. =)

Florapunk sounds like exactly the kind of thing I'd be into. :happybounce:  Love the worlds you design; the color scheme and detail on the train are gorgeous!
