The Night Train by RYE-BREAD The Night Train by RYE-BREAD
Full View, please!

This piece was inspired by a song I played the marimba on in jazz band last week called "Night Train", a piece that conveys a lazy, slow ride on an empty train through the dark night and into the faster-paced morning light. And so it got me thinking, what would one find on a nearly-empty night train? What lingers there that day-travelers never see? I tried to create an awkward moment filled with both mystery, humour, and fantastical awe. I wish it were bigger so you could all see the details (jacket stitching, stray hairs, etc), but oh well. Anyway, enjoy ^_^

Note: just because they're on a train doesn't mean it's from spirited away ;)

Photoshop CS2 + Tablet
Refs used (middle girl is from Fresh Fruits)
Illustrator CS for background composition
Several days completion

Crits and comments greatly appreciated!

Not entirely sure why, but I'm finding the big guy's expression to be enormously hilarious.
