Long overdue commission for Lionel, of his glorious inter-dimensional train craft! For this commission I was to design the vehicle based off his specifications, which was a pretty big challenge for me. I think most of the time for this piece went into the drawing stage as a result. I'm pretty pleased with the result! Also, I was able to find a wonderful stock photo for the bridge, which I painted over to simplify and match the color scheme of this piece.
