train sprite drawing

Post by MLG »

Hi all,
I have decided to redraw trains from my sets. This time not using the PixelTool, since it never gets out of it symmetric, sometimes a row of pixels gets cut out, and there are similar issues with it. So, I have decided to draw them by hand in GIMP. I have part of my first hand drawn train done, and have run into not so minor issue: I can't seem to be able to draw a nice looking pantograph. :( I would like to get some tips, or something, from those of you, who are more expierenced at this. Only thing, I have drawn by hand without any tools, is a rack rail, which I have added to existing track sprites. I welcome any help, and prefer using this thread, so anybody new to sprite drawing can also use it.

Thanks!
MLG
