You also forgot "antithesis", "cathartic" and "zeitgeist"... 

Must try harder. 

Have a look at www.artybollocks.com

 

 

I hope that Kevin will forgive me, but those of you who enjoyed artybollocks.com might equally enjoy this - and some of you might even understand it:

That really is a striking image, Kevin. I cannot see anything about it that tells me it is a model.

I am sure that I have worked with that character. There's never a cricket bat handy when you need one!

Love that brickwork, I have been planning a locomotive shed and been undecided about interior details or not. That picture has made up my mind. Interior details it is.

Can't wait to see what you're adding.  I've already filed this idea for later reference when I have a shed of my own.

The biggest problem when adding smoke and steam is knowing when to stop as it becomes addictive, sometimes less is more and some fantastic effects can be added, of course we are getting away from real modelling but as I said with my caption in the PS picture, it's just a bit of fun and adds that extra bit of missing realism :D

I assume you use Smoke & Fog brushes?

I use Serif Affinity for which I have download numerous ones but never got around to using them.

It will be interesting to see how you get on in Afinity..... 

 

I would have thought if you use a small brush set on white / grey (combination of) and then set the transparency to say 25%, by using one of the blurred edges brush, you could get some lovely shots.

Funny you should mention that but I have been sitting here messing about with my brushes.

 

I now have downloaded about 10 different free ones and this is my first effort....

took a while!

That’s really effective.

 

As @phil.c said though, it’s had to know when to stop. Less is probably more.

 

However of course, knowing the care you take in selecting your photos in the first place, adding steam to everyone is going to take an age!

Looks good, I use sampled real smoke/steam and then brushes etc to add to, the trick with some shots is to get the smoke behind buildings, lamp posts and under bridges etc

It's a dangerous road to go down for a railway modeller because there comes a point when it's more about painting than modelling. In the extreme case - why bother modelling it at all? Just paint it.

 

Everyone has a different idea where the acceptable threshold is between modelling and painting and of course it changes depending on the use of the image.

 

Personally, I want an image to show the model as I would see it with my own eyes.
