Likely to have been painted at a school if it was painted by a student.........

It isn't the right colour, the headclusters are all wrong...

Why is everyone being so critical over this pic ? It's good to see younger people taking an interest in the railway even if it's just a small amount. So what if it doesn't have the right lights or it's the wrong shade :?

I'm starting to get the hang of Prodesktop although I haven't figured out away to stick Pictures on to the Model (I have textured it in the default materials, glass, wood etc.). :)

Very true, it's actually a tough thing to draw or paint. I've tried. I believe heart-of-wessex and maybe Sprinter have seen my feeble attempts to draw in pen a HST. Quite simply my attempts are pathetic.

Big up the chap who painted that painting. Tough to tell where's it set at from looking at it, but is that at all important? Not a bad attempt at all really!

I too would like to see TC attempt the same thing by hand, not with the use of fancy computing software.
