This isn't bad after adjusting the texture and working it into the landscape.

The crews really like the new locomotive from the Brunner shops.

Hi Randy,

She looks right at home. Nice work.

I don’t know what you use to paint or skill level - although judging from your route they look pretty darn good.

Are you familiar with layer types? When painting on logos and such - using a soft or hard light layer type allows you to see the underlying imperfections through the logo.

Also - if you look closely at my Rutland logo - what I did is select the logo - then expand the selection - then feather the selection - then flood fill with black. Then select the original logo and delete the black directly below it. This leaves you with a feathered black halo around the original logo. Adjust to taste. To me - it gives the logo the appearance of a physical presence on the surface and gives it some pop.

Just my two cents on some tricks I’ve picked up over the years.

Regards,
Scott

Hi Randy,

Oh - one thing I forgot - all my loco's are intended to be driven from the [5] and [Shift 5] "Passenger" views - spin the two traditional "Headout" views backwards to look at the train - that way you have all four quadrants covered a mere key press away and you get the relative motion of your head to the train - in all four views. This adds GREATLY to the immersion factor for me. You may have to adjust the [5] and [Shift 5] views forward and back with the [Page Up] [Page Down] keys as the position changes with focal view set - I'm running at 26 FOV.

Regards,
Scott

Hi Scott,
Thanks.
I use PaintDotNet and the only way to go is layers. Layers upon layers.
I don't know any other way to go about painting something like this. https://i.imgur.com/9fRArXl.jpg

Thanks again for the loco.
