Drawings/sketches of QLD buses

Post by TheIlikeBusesGuy »

Hi All,
As well as being a transport enthusiast of Buses, Trains, Trams and Ferries, I enjoy a bit of drawing and design work. I have done sketches of a few different route service buses that i quite like across SEQ. I know that they aren't perfect and that a few small details may be missing/a bit incorrect, but I was inspired by another forum member's posts from the NSW page.

I have also created a part 2, which can be found herehttp://www.busaustralia.com/forum/viewt ... 44&t=77090

And to cap it off, a Volvo B10ML Fuji from Brisbane Bus Lines. It is sad to realise that these classic old artics are going to make way for the new Bonluck Citystars.

Thankyou! I'm happy to hear that other forum viewers appreciate these sorts of posts. I think it beats seeing lots of pictures of rather common route service buses, such as Brisbane Transport vehicles, LCBS Bustech VST's, Veolia Transdev Merc Bustech VST's and other fleet mainstay vehicles. If you are interested, i will attempt a few more.

The sketches look awesome. I was thinking of doing some Caboolture Bus Lines, Kangaroo Bus Lines, Busways Grafton, Sydney Transport ones too.

Thank you! I'm glad to hear people like these. I like drawing things that are a bit less common, so the smaller operators are good. it would be good to see some other drawings from Queensland operators!

What impresses me is that you appear to be doing these attractive images by hand.....
I also like the unusual three-quarter-front-from-above approach.

A B8RLEA, BT, operating a route 66. It's an attachment, I really don't like the pixel limit. I've also drawn some B7's, B8's and more, but just found about this thread.
