The Internet Told Me To.

So, totally out of order; here's page one! First the roughs:

And then the finals:

You'll notice very little difference in the composition between the two, although the Donkey has undergone some cosmetic polishing. The main difference is that the finished pencils are drawn using three point perspective, which required the use of so many construction lines that halfway done the piece looked like the work of a demented but very spatially aware spider. I also got rid of the Donkey's snowplough, mostly because although it had a kinda cool retro cow-catcher look to it, in practical terms it served no purpose- in fact it was positioned in such a way as to move snow into the path of the tracks.
More to come soon. Den has found me on Twitter so now there's no escape from his 'encouragements'.

Fuck me that's beautiful.

I feel a bit emotional.

Excuse me a moment. You understand.

I could've used one of those during the Kansas City winters...

Love it.

Very very cool. And very impressed.

I can't decide if it belongs in more in Aliens ... or 30 Days of night.

Pretty Sweet.

Awesome work,

Feels some how familiar but completely unique if that makes sense. Reminds me of that film Moon so maybe there is a film in your future or even a TV spin off.

That's very nice Chris. 3 point perspective can be a real pain in the backside but you've done a really nice job of it. I like the finished/clean line work too. can't wait for your next post
