Improving My Skills

Unread postby RailWanderer » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:39 pm

So, I have been practicing and making small objects to see if I have control of what I am doing. I made this today from scratch, its a Milk Can Platform for the farmer's milk.

It appears to me that you have perfect control of what you are doing!
That looks very cool! Certainly one of those things I never knew I ABSOLUTELY needed til you made it! *!greengrin!*
Well done sir! !*salute*!

!*roll-laugh*! yah, the platform for the farmers to set out their milk and then the freight car pulls up and they pick up the milk from the small platform. Going to use it on my route as there were many stops that had these things off to the side of the waiting stations. Nest is a stepping platform for getting to the steps on the motors.

For such a tiny object, the detailing on the wood is impressive! I can't wait to see what else you can create with that skill. !!*ok*!!

It may be small in size, but the detail and quality on it are fantastic!

Looks good, would also love to see a new version of that without years of wear and tear, such as if it was just built.

Gawd, I have to quit messing around like this, I may just have hidden talents....made this this today, textures and all. This stuff is pretty cool. Ever since Steve showed me the trick to making the shadows deeper its been great fun. I hope you all like it.

Thanks Rich, believe me, I have been trying at this for some time now, and it is finally coming together.

The objects are the Flag stop, the Milk Can Platform, and the Flag Stand.

I think they look great, also I think that station in the background is also looking great.
