Day 791: Babbacombe Model Village, Grand House

So, this was a rather nice large house made up of several different building types including a stone and brick structure and a wooden beamed structure which I think had something to do with fox hunting though I’m not completely sure to be honest. All I know is that the tow structures together looked pretty nice so thought I would take a picture and then do a sketch of it for you all.

Till next time!

So this is a slightly less successful attempt at drawing a suspension bridge from the model village. No idea if it was actually based on a real bridge somewhere or not but it was still quite a fun little scene in the village which had the train going over it every now and then (which, predictably my son loved), just wish I had managed to get it drawn a bit more accurately than I have.

Till next time!

So, this lovely little scene from Babbacombe was pretty much one of a variety of British village architectural styles put onto one street (or at least that’s what I assume it is). Quite a fun little sketch as well with all the different styles and varying roof line in it and one that came out quite nicely in the end.

Till next time!

Again were in the model village with its football stadium. A version of Wembley Stadium (name changed though to Wombley). Quite liked the building in this (though not that much of a football fan) and really like how the angles came out in this as the perspective seems to work really well. I did change one thing though as I couldn’t do with Arsenal beating Chelsea so swapped the score around using artistic licence!

Till next time!

So, this was another little scene of a Funicular railway which I struggled to get a good photo of due to its location. Still I managed to get this one and get this sketch from it so I’m not going to complain too much about it. Funnily enough though my favourite part of the sketch is the little car on the cliff to the right of the scene.

Till next time!

Day 784: Babbacombe Model Village Radar Scene

So, just a quick little sketch for yesterday of the mock up scene of a radar station at Babbacombe. Loved the amount of detail in this scene (and all of the scenes to be honest) and actually really enjoyed sketching it, especially the radar ball as the shape was a lot more interesting  than the shapes that I usually sketch. Anyway I hope you guys like the little scene!

Till next time!

So, another sketch of a rollercoaster from Thorpe Park, this time of the one time record holder for most inversions, Colossus (held it with 10 inversions for several years) made by Intamin AG. Was one of the first extreme rollercoasters that I ever rode, and although its beginning to get a bit rough (and gives my wife a headache), I still like it and its a fun coaster!

Till next time!

Day 770: Nemesis Inferno, Thorpe Park

Time taken: 30 minutes

So, decided to combine two of my loves in life, drawing and sketching and Theme Parks and rollercoaster (plus, I recently bought Planet Coaster and so, Theme Parks are kind of stuck in my head at the moment). Anyway this is one of my favourite rollercoasters in the form of Thorpe Parks Nemesis Inferno, a B&M invert with some decent inversions and theming. Choose this image of the ride going through one of the turns over one of the bodies of water as I thought it made a nice scene and was interesting and fun to sketch. Quite happy with how it came out and I think it looks recognisably like a rollercoaster which is the main thing so that’s good. Definitely going to be doing some more of these sketches for you guys, so I hope you like them as much as me!

Till next time!

Day 766: Steam and Snow

Reference image: Sorry, I’ve lost the tab that I had for this image. I know it was from Pinterest though.

Time taken: 35 minutes

So, another steam train for day 766, this time one steaming through the snow past this old barn (or some such building). Quite a nice image with the barn and the trees framing the locomotive well and the steam billowing about and I really enjoyed sketching it. Pretty sure I also promised my son that I’ve do him a sketchbook full of trains whilst drawing this too, because, you know, I don’t struggle enough keeping up with this sketchbook and blog!

Till next time!
