    Eow 94 The sky train express

    EOW 94 The Skytrain Express


    Brief
    the not-to-distant future
    The fuel crisis has culminated in the crash of the airline industry. A new form of intercontinental travel has been invented. It uses NO Fossil fuel. it transformes the face of the landscape.. as the tracks crisscross the continent.
    NOTE: This is an environment NOT an IDW. its about what the world looks like, not how spiffy and shiny you can make a futuristic train. Although the train is definately part of it.

    REQUIRED
    Train
    tracks
    sky

    Ponder points:
    what powers the train?
    what are the tracks made of?
    how does it stay in the sky?


    DUE september 15

    I'm glad you decided to stick with this idea. I'll probably sketch again but not put anything up.

    so the sky train can go over the midwest..... it's my hope that you can stir anything that is inspiring you into the mix
    thats the freedom of EOW. which is so different from a real conceptjob.

    I can't believe you guys didn't realize the midwest farm was a joke... it was THE most prosaic thing I could think of on the spurr of the moment

    hehe even so, it might work for a future topic

    I'm game, I should work more on my environments and characters. My problem with this topic is that it's so blue sky, I have too many ideas whizzing through my mind. Time to make some decisions I guess

    Everybody's joking about this midwestern farm, but I'd like to know how many of us could draw it without reference. Maybe is prosaic but it's not automatically easy too. The problem is that it's a difficult and time-consuming theme: what if the farm is too mid- and not enough western? Or just western? Or even far western? What makes it typical? Are there photo references of such a generic subject?
    Some ChoW ago (the Plague Doctor I think) I wanted to draw a typical Venice environment and I thought it was easy just because I've been there so many times and I've seen so many "typical" Venice palaces and houses. With much disappointment I needed to use photos as reference just to learn to draw a single window, to make it believable.
    Chaos you know I will draw anything you ask us to draw (midwestern farms apart and if I have time to do it).

    Ok, I stop ranting and I start sketching...
