This drawing was done on 16″x20″ watercolor art board using Faber Castell watercolor pens and Pigma Mircon Pens. I tested several other pens and these did the best on this drawing. Several of the tangles I learned from Zentangles and tangles site. A few I created myself.
Once I had designed a Saloon and a Bank for my Railroad Town, I thought was necessary for some law enforcement to be available to handle nasty situations. The Sheriff’s Office was created. I wanted the give the building a log cabin feel. Iron doors were placed on the cell and the front entrance just in case the Sheriff was called away. A small storage area was create on the roof with a ladder leading up. It also provided another means for escape, if there is a problem. The Sheriff needed a desk and note the gun rack. There is no guns in the building when the Sheriff is not present. Please don’t look in the bucket in the cell.
This building was designed using Tinkercad. Click here If you would like to see the 3d design: Sheriff Office
Other projects have gotten in the way of posting on my blog. I had a reason for creating this site. If I am not posting regularly then I am not fulfilling that goal.
For Christmas I received some Copic Markers. I want to experiment and test the markers. The drawing below is my experiment. I wanted to see how they flowed and blended.
There are so many designers in Tinkercad that never get recognized, so I decided that I would start recognizing them on my blog. Christopher Fet’s designs of trains and train tracks is impressive. But, Christopher Fet provides a great example of giving created to other designers when he uses pieces of their designs in his work. According to his profile, he only been using Tinkercad since July 2020. You can see Christopher Fet’s other designs on Tinkercad.

The designs shows that she is not only creative in creating the designs, but writing the story behind the design. Ella Zhong profile states:
Ｈｉ ｔｈｅｒｅ, and welcome to my profile! I’m a fifth grader, and I like reading books, messing with designs and also science. All my designs are made by me, no copies! (Unless I’m in a contest.)
If you look closely, every design has my hibiscus-based flower badge hidden in it! If you find it, tell me in the comments the approximate location, so others can find it too. For example: “The flower is hidden in a tapestry in your house.”

The next building I designed for my Railroad Town and the Saloon. I now had the Train Station were people disembark, these people needed some place to relax. I decided to design some of the interior of the Saloon. It needed tables and chairs, a bar, and a player piano.
The horse was export as a STL and imported into this design. I changed it color to black.
The Player Piano has all 88 keys.

Below are some of their designs:
The next building I designed in my Railroad Town was the Livery. My thought were: I had the Train, the train dropped passengers for at the Train Station I designed. If the passengers wanted to travel or set up a farm, they would need some place to rent or purchase horses and wagons. So the Livery was created. But, it needed a horse, a wagon, and the building.
Yes, I made the horse a lot bigger than it needed. This helped with the details when I scaled it down. The joints are their in case I want to pose the horse in future designs. Link to view the horse in 3d: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/jTh69Npb1Eu
The horses were imported into this design as STL files. This allowed the design to load faster. Link to the wagon in 3D: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/1aXkcSkeSV0
The water troughs and hay was taken from other designs. Yes, the wagon was designed for the canopy on the wagon to be removed. Link to the Liver in 3d: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/lGqOUWemGMK
In 2016, I created a Train in Tinkercad. One of the train cars was a Livestock Car. My thoughts were: I now had a Railroad Station to drop off the passengers, therefore I needed a place to drop of the cows. The cow was created when as part of the livestock car. Here is the Cattle Depot I created. Link to 3d view: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/6m2hyWDzL7z.
The cow is one of my most popular designs. If you are wondering how I came up with the name for the Town, well the train is called “Midnight Express”.
In 2016, I created a 3d design of a Train in Tinkercad. It came complete with the train engine, coal car, passenger car, cattle car, caboose and cows. Blog post: 3d Print – Train Engine | Sarah Cath’s Adventures. Since I was prevented in 2020 from having too many adventure outside, I started creating a Railroad Town for my train.
My train of thought was, if I have a train I need a Railroad Station. So I created a Railroad Station. Link to see 3D view: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/3iGbkrv0K2U
