Art-related projects

Postby jpachl » Thu Feb 25, 2016 4:02 pm

While I had not much time for the hobby in the first two months of the year, I did two small projects that are in some way art-related. The first is a picture that was inspired by the painting 'The last station' by Polish artist Filip Dudek, see http://5ofnovember.deviantart.com/art/the-last-station-424186988

That painting shows a dystopian near-future fantasy scene. While the diesel locomotive in Dudek's painting resembles a Russian 2ТЭ10, I used an M62, which also fits into the scene. For the dystopian look, I applied a Clyde filter.

The second project is the outcome of a collaboration with virtual reality artist Anthemios who is well-known for his stunning in-game screenshots.

For the model scene in the foreground, I kitbashed the interlocking tower from the Auhagen kit of the German prototype interlocking tower 'Saalfeld'. For the background picture, I used a cutout from a screenshot provided by Anthemios. Here is a link to the original picture, which is from a Beta version of Tom Clancy's 'The Division':

Here are two more artsy pictures I made recently. For both scenes, Anthemios provided the background pictures. The background for the first pic is a screenshot from the video game 'Mad Max', the second from the computer game 'Fallout 4'. Both pictures show rather fantasy scenes out of any historical correctness.

Absolutely fantastic. I can't imagine ever getting tired of your work.

They are not the original Rokal cars but they are made from molds taken from Rokal stock. So, they are not exactly on scale but a bit too short. However, they are made a bit narrower to fit better into the loading gauge. A small batch manufacturer offered the molds without interior and trucks. The trucks I used are American type ones that were used on German passenger equipment. They are a little bit too small but look not bad on these coaches.

In the meantime, I made a lot of similar pictures using screenshots of computer games as a virtual environment for model scenes. While most of the US rolling stock pieces in my collection are of 1940s and 1960s prototypes, I recently bought some modern freight cars to be used in settings with virtual environments from computer games playing in a modern or near future world. So, I just got some modern tank cars made by MTB. Here is the first picture in which I used these cars:
