Love it!

really nice oxidation and weathering you have there

maybe some slopes and erosion to the ground?

Can't get smoke without coal. Can't get coal without a tender... so I'm okay without the smoke. I'm interested in the Big Boy itself... did you draw it all yourself? I had done some similar illustrations in Corel Draw 20 years ago and it took a very long time to do the drawings. Your's looks terrific. The rendering is great, but I'm not sure I like all the trees in the background. Big Boys served the UP in Wyoming and east of the Wasatch Range so there wouldn't be many trees in the background, but lots of interesting barren ground.

right on builder 2010. this is all mine and has been a pet project of mine for a few years believe it or not. on and off. always adding a little bit more. there are a few posts where I sneak it in here and there. this test is with updated materials. I have the tender almost complete, but it is still on the previous set of materials. I tried working with aging right in sketchup but it is much harder to do or perhaps more complicated to get it right and I ended up with a lot of materials to handle all the variations. So this set of materials is as if it has been off the showroom floor for just a bit and I did all aging in post. much easier and better results.

corel draw. I played around around with that one too about 25 years ago. managed to get a graphic of a volvo that I liked but nothing like this.
Not Cheyenne. I know. more like Colorado.
