Adam Heine - Board Games

So this week turned out to be even busier than last week, but because I'm kind of a board game nut, I couldn't just do another rough sketch designed by hobbits. The game is Ticket to Ride, which I've always considered a very pretty game.

Aw, I LOVE Ticket To Ride! And I love the detail on this too, especially the kids in the middle playing the game. Brilliant! It's like Jumanji but for train loving kids.

What's the medium on this?

Mandy said...

Love the perspective and the color. Are kids playing the boardgame there in the middle of the station? or is the station with trains and people part of the game? I also like all the people doing there own thing. I'm glad you had a chance to share!

Adam Heine said...

It's both, Mandy :-) The trains themselves are from the game, but the kids are playing the game too, cuz I needed people doing stuff and I thought it'd be fun to go meta.

The medium is ink and watercolor pencils, being the fanciest art toys I own.

Ooh, I love watercolor pencils! I use them with my Niji Waterbrush.

Nice drawing this week! You did a great job with the perspective.

BTW, my 6yo just saw your picture on my screen, and said, "Wow, who drew that? He must be really good at drawing!"

Adam Heine said...

Oo, yay! 6-year-old compliments are my favorite! Charles Eubanks compliments notwithstanding ;-)

Perspective is one of those few skills I retained from 5th grade, at least the straight-lined kind. Foreshortening is another beast entirely.
