Train attack


On 26. Juni 1941. a hungarian passenger train under way from Tiszaborkút to Bilin was attacked by three soviet I-16 fighters.
This illustration was made for a study about the affair. I started with a pencil sketch then I finished it digital. The train and the locomotive was a newness for me but biggest challenge was the deadline, I had just a few hours more than one day from comission to the final version. Fortunately I got a lot of reference materials about the location and the train cars.

I usually started with a pencil sketch.


I painted a fast color sketch based on the pencil drawing. I sent the color sketch for the customer for approving.



According to Csaba B. Stenge historican's advices I changed the direction of the attacking fighters.
