Railway hitch hiking by mikopol Railway hitch hiking by mikopol
Inspired by photo of :iconeyepilot13: called "SP GE Lawndale Ave 12-30-95" [link] . Thanks a lot!

I really love trains. The voice of locomotive's engine rumble and noise of trains running on tracks are like symphonic concert to me. :P

Why have I added that cat on the roof? I'd liked to be more creative. Also it may create some sort of story.

I recognised it by the brush on the front grill, enough of a story there to build

You perfectly caught the grit, grime and spirit of the original image. As well as adding your own interpretation and imagination to the new image.

Really cool. Seems like I haven't seen a full-sized locomotive from you in a while. =)

I'm very fond of the gritty, grimy, rusty textures you've created with the watercolors.

Dirt and rust on mechanical devices can make interesting texture, which may remind a skin of old dragon. :)

Awesome piece. You can hear the sound of the engine rumbling past as it goes down the street.
