It made me laugh! I'm always telling my girls to take umbrellas, they refuse and my response is "OK, so get soaked!" :)

"Berwyn is next. Doors open on the right at Berwyn." Those El cars are not fun to ride in when wet!

I can almost imagine what the girl on the right is complaining about.
I think it's cute cuz it something that happens to all of us at least once in our lives.

Nice effect with the blurry foreground.

Geez, reminds me so much of the Green Line trains on the Boston T. The older trains -- the ones from the mid 1980's reaching the end of their service life.
That photo there kinda says it all XD hahahah

Fantastic piece, though, man. Lord knows I've had days similar to this myself downtown.
robotnicc Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Now that you mention it, it does look like the Boston T. Was it replaced by something better? Or was it cancelled and merged with another train line? Dunno why, but public transportation kinda fascinates me.

Anyway, thanks man!

The trains from the 80's are still in service today on the Boston Green Line. Slowly, though, they're being plucked from service as they deteriorate beyond reasonable repair. In the early-mid 1990's more green line trains were introduced alongside the 80's models. The new trains had features such as true ground-level doorways which allowed wheelchair handicapped people to get on and off. [Tee 80's trains required a hydraulic contraption that lifted the wheelchair into the car. Caused huge delays.] The Green Line has always remained its own separate line from the other 5 in Boston. It was the first subway in America, afterall, so it has some real history behind it.

Lots of pictures and stuff to read up on it there :) [The photo of the Type 7 car are the cars which look like this artwork inside. They're the ones which are approaching the end of their service life. The Type 8 cars are the most recent cars on the line. Truth be told, whenever possible, I try to ride on a Type 7 car. They just feel more comfortable inside.]

I have always seen this piece as a true piece of work!!! The facial and body expressions, the water details, it's like taking a picture a drawing it your way making it look much more alive!! My sincere respect towards your work!! Simply amazing!
RevStephanieSatan Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2009
I love how you made them look wet.
shollyzz Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009

Do you live in Chicago?
Because I do.
robotnicc Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Yup, I live in Chicago. And that's the Argyle stop right there on the red line. :)

I know that feeling :D one day I was waiting for a ride home and suddenly there started to rain pretty much. I think I was more wet than these girls together :D Beautiful pic.

I can imagine what she's yelling

"I told you the news said it's going to rain. But no you said that there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I wanted to at least bring a umbrella but agian you said no it would just slow us down. And I had to cover your ticket too because you lost your wallet running to the station!!!"


robotnicc Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Haha! That's a nice take on the backstory. Thanks for browsing! :)
Zezlemet Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009
Sometimes when I see pictures my mind just implants a story behind it.

Looove it :^^:

Thanks! ^^;
Knollilocks Featured By Owner May 13, 2009
This is so true to life. There's nothing worse than sitting on the train, on a seat that's squishy wet from your clothes, trying not to shiver in full blast air con.
x-holic Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009
This looks great!
Reminds me of the day I went to buy some ice-cream... and then the rain burst out. :D There wasn't a single dry spot on me, I swear. :XD:

Beautiful work. I love the puddles of water on the ground. The only thing that bugs me a bit is that one guy to the left. I feel he's either drawn at slightly the wrong angel, or shouldn't be there at all. XD

I love days like this :)
This is so awesome, man you have some great drawings!
bigunit193 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009
Did you use Boston's T as a reference?
robotnicc Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Nope. I based it on Chicago's El. But I guess it could be anything. People have also said it looked like the BART. :)
