The girl in the drawing (probably me) is saying: "Today I didn't know what to do and I stole a train...".
I used watecolors for the background, pantones for the train and crayons for details.


This is the best review someone has ever done for one of my creations, it's in Italian but I won't translate it because it's perfect in its original form (including the fact that the reviewer says he's thirsty):

"Come disse Toffolo in occasione della collezione dei racconti di Gipi per la Coconino Press, tu sei un'autrice che non ha eguali a rappresentare le svogliatezze giovanili. Un ritratto estremo, fuori dalle righe, l'esplosione della noia adolescenziale e del sentimento di prigionia. Il treno, poi, l'avanzamento, niente e stato lasciato dal caso, il fatto che tu abbia rubato un treno vuol dire che non sei soddisfatta del mondo, che stai cercando un progresso, sei stufa che la tua vita venga comandata da forze eteree e non percepibili, quasi fosse frutto dell'alea. Tu vuoi movimento, ma non sei sicura della direzione che vuoi intraprendere, la cosa viene raffigurata dal tuo busto, rimasto fuori dal treno come desiderio involontario di non abbandonare l'aria che respiravi prima di salirvi. Qui c'e il bivio, c'e il dilemma shakespeariano, c'e la persistente di non voler prendere nessuna scelta, senza rendersi conto che questo vuol dire gia di per se prendere una scelta.
Volevo scrivere un mucchio di altre robe, ma sto morendo di sete, scusa, vado a bere. Bei colori."

(A quanto pare a Newgrounds non piacciono le parole accentate.)



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Just the other day a cleaner here in Sweden actually started a train by accident while cleaning it and it sped off, derailed and flew right through a house. They thought she had stolen the train but apparently it was just an accident. Of course that's what I think of when I'm viewing this. :D I can almost imagine that train running a few houses down, haha...

As for the drawing, the way the grass is brushed really captures the motion in the picture, eve though the train itself doesn't appear fuzzy at all (would be a nice addition though, along the one viewable side maybe). It's nice how you really drew in all the windows even at the far back of the train, though the construction looks simple there's actually a lot of detail. The wheels (or whatever they're called) under the train just look like a block the way everything's shaded, would be nice with some more detail there, but otherwise it looks good. Sky adds a bit of color, too. Keep it up!
