Sleepless Night

Still need to add some paint and I might monkey around with it for some images but the modeling is complete. I already have a couple of different rail components. I guess I can put some track under this thig. I’m going to skip the screw threads this time.



Starting another one. A long way from finished.

This is a digital model of a physical model of a locomotive designed by Samuel Geoghegan to work in the Guiness Brewery in Dublin.


Slow going but some progress. Lots of parts. Fortunately there’s a lot of symmetry in this one and the new Flip tool is making the work easier.


Always amazed by your mechanical marvel’s. :+1:


Thank you very much.

The shadows look great. They give the image so much depth. Do you set them with SUP’s calendar in the Shadows tray?

Thanks. I just set them up in the Shadows panel in the Default Tray. For these sort of views I don’t spend much time setting up the shadows. Mostly just turn the on.

I just tried to emulate your drawings with one of mine by changing the style to something minimalist (“Hidden Lines”?) and enabling shadows, but the result just isn’t the same! Clearly you have a few good tricks up your sleeve.

It’s a tiny bit “sketchy,” and maybe grey for line color instead of pure black?

I had the face style set to Monochrome and, as @RTCool mentioned, the edges use a sketchy line style I created. The image was exported at at 6000 px wide (and cropped) to get the very thin lines.
