Southern Serves The South 2 by markkarvon Southern Serves The South 2 by markkarvon
This is actually the original version of the Ps-4. The other version I posted here: [link]

This one was done for a client under commission. Now that it's been released I think it's ok for me to post it. I like this version better with the trestle.

It is a gorgeous engine for sure. It's not a shot but a painting. Solid 3/4 frontal view for a commercial client.

That's way nice. I can't really do the colouring thing, so I don't read much about it. lol

I had to look at my telephone to see if the engine number was the same it's 1396. Your work is amazing, it looks as though the engine is going to bust right out of the screen

Can't say which one's better. You know my uncle loves the ol' Iron Horses so I shown him yours. He just stayed astonished and couldn't stop watching them:D

Either way, she sure is a beauty! I feel like I'm looking at a photograph instead of a picture!

And are those N&W cars behind her?
