Time taken: 30 minutes

So, next stop is Basingstoke where we have a rather cropped sketch of the station showing two trains waiting next to eachother on platform 2 (and I’m assuming 1). Not entirely sure why I didn’t get a lot more done on this given that it took the usual 30 minutes but oh well, even in its unfinished state you can tell its trains waiting at a station and. Not much else to say I’m afraid so I’ll leave you with the sketch and move onto getting some more of these uploaded so we can catch up a bit!

Till next time!

Another station that I don’t think I’ve ever noticed us stopping at is in the town of Overton. This view of the station however I really liked, with the footbridge and the factory behind it. Decided to go a bit more solid with this sketch though still using a broken line which worked out a lot better than I think the other ones have done lately which was nice. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to complete the factory in the background but I quite like the extremely the faded look at the back as I think it makes the bridge and the foreground pop a but more.

Till next time!

So, next station along the line is in Whitchurch. Again another place that I can’t ever remember having stopped at but there we go. Thought this view of the station with its footbridge made for quite a nice sketch although there isn’t a train present which is a shame. Also tried the whole fractured line technique that I liked in the last one but I think I may have gone a bit over the top with it here and the image looks very blurry and out of focus, though, you can still make the image out so it’s not awful, just not quite as effective as the last sketch.

Till next time!

So, the next station long the line is Andover where we have another shot of a train waiting at the station. Tried a completely different take on the style with this one with a very sketchy look to it that actually makes it just look like its really hammering it down with rain. Still the actual tones look quite nice and I like the fact that I haven’t actually used a solid line it which is nice.

Till next time!

Time taken: 30 minutes

So, the next station along the line is one that I don’t ever remember having been called as a stop while on route but nevermind, its on the route list so I’m not going to argue with it. Pretty weird sketch to be honest as I was coming down pretty heavily with a strong cold while sketching this, and it resulted in this sketch, where the train looks really nice and then everything else is a bit out of scale but oh well, it’s probably one of those things that you guys would never have really noticed had I not actually pointed it out, but there we go. Anyway.

Till next time!
