In The Tube...

This is a small sketch that I've done in the tube last month. I left it on the side for a while as it was nothing special, and then remembered yesterday that I wanted to draw the pattern of the London Underground seats on it at the time, but my journey was too short, and also, I'm not Albert Brenet (see the great blog that Limbolo started on him).
So here it is, done on photoshop.

BEAUTIFULL
The undergroun pattern looks great.
This is Piccadilly line for sure, and looking the guy pose looking the window , It must be close to Hammersmith, where the train isn't underground and where people seems to wake up and become human again.
I allways realice about that.

Stef said...

Thanks Alberto! You're right, this is the Picadilly line.

Hello Stephane

vu ton commentaire sur mon blog, l'animation est un gif anim; il y a trois images qui tourne en boucle, c'est tout simple.
sinon mon blog est de nouveau visible, il y a eu un ennui technique chez le fournisseur.
@ bientôt
Thierry

Salut Steph,

j'aime beaucoup le fauteuil du Tube, mais ne pourrais tu pas imiter toutes les matières du dessin avec photoshop (le manteau, les chaussures, etc)?

Sinon, même en béotien, j'adore carrément celui du resto. Les lignes, les contrastes, super ! J'espère que tout le monde va bien à Londres.
