Man to Machine by RedCoaster Man to Machine by RedCoaster
My character Railrunner, the red roller coaster from my story:
The plot:
WHAT HAPPENS TO AMUSEMENT PARK RIDES ONCE THEY ARE PUT INTO STORAGE OR DESTROYED? They are magically transported to a place only known as “Amusement Park Between”, a park that co-exist within any other and is only accessible by those who are of its blood. There are no limits and no humans. The only residents are the rides. However, they are much different from our own. Amusement Park Between’s rides are ALIVE, having both the characteristics of man and beast. Amusement Park Between was once merry and joyous, but for the past several years it has spiraled into turmoil. An evil tyrant known as Ironwheel has taken control, casting a dark shadow over Amusement Park Between, and whose evil intentions endanger both their world and our own. The rides only hope is the key to their prophecy; the red will defeat the black. That particular key is the only ride that was created differently. The red roller coaster, Railrunner. AND THIS IS HIS STORY.

Yes, these rides are BIO MECHANICAL, meaning they are metal on the outside, flesh on the inside.

Quite happy with this since I'm a beginner at Digital.

Now this is something I've never covered on here but if you have read Twisted, you'll know the story to this piece. My illustration instructor is actually read my book and requested that I make this for a character project.

On the rare occasion, if any ride ever ventured out of Between and into our world, they had a very good way of disguising themselves. To humans, a twisted roller coaster would be considered a mean, big, and bloodthirsty killer - which the term "shoot first and ask questions later" would come into play. To not be seen and to just blend in with the crowd - Between's rides dawn a second skin during the day - shape shifting into a human being. However, they become their true selves at night, when in trouble, or by touching their "nonliving breed". As good as this sounds, there are a few drawbacks - the main one being every time they transform from one shape to another, the morph is extremely painful.

This ability - as handy as it may be, lands Railrunner into serious trouble.

I'd go into more detail, but I would be spoiling it. :)

Amazing! you must have a better imagination and youre very good at digital drawings.
DannetSink Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013
i always imagine a living roller coaster when i was 10 i could imagine but i never knew how to draw it yet i found the answer.

''First you imagine something that youre mind can make you later draw it, if you draw it well it may come to life''.

Imagination is the most basic ingredient to make incredible things.

The picture is great, but the story... it's just so original! Not even I would think of something so creative and imaginative like that!

Awesome! I find it very cool that rollercoasters have that ability ^^

Not bad, but I still prefer your traditional art. Too many people do digital, so I hope that you don't end up switching over to all digital art.
Xakriuth Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013

all i've seen are the sketches, and its fun to see it with colors.

Beginner? When I was a beginner, my digital art was terrible xD A few more drawings and you can start calling yourself "advanced". At least that's how I feel it.

I also love the idea of the 'disguise'.

" Between's rides dawn a second skin during the day"

You mean 'don,' not 'dawn.' (Do they don the skins at dawn?)

Where did Human-Railrunner's pants come from? It would be impossible to wear pants that small prior to the transformation, so it wouldn't be on his body beforehand.

But, since his necklace does scale down...does Railrunner wear rollercoaster-sized pants prior to the transformation, and it then scales down? Or is the scaling ability exclusive to the necklace?
Unendingride Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
Its nice to see another picture of Railrunner in human form than the one in the book. This is really cool looking!

(P.S. Is that an Intamin Wing Coaster on the far right?)
