From one artist to another, sheer awesomeness! I definately say go for the graphic design route, but be prepared for anything. My college had a bunch of prerequisite classes that were extremely annoying and abstract before we were even aloud to take basic art classes.
Still, completely epic! Love all of those scenes

Dan N's Theme Park Artwork Part 2
Thanks for the comments everybody. I'll definitely consider selling my artwork once I get my name out there.
Today's series of pictures comes from the fictional town of Swiss Falls Michigan and their family amusement park, Cheddar Beach. The park itself is run by the city and is funded through tax money as well as tourist money.
This year, the park is building a western themed coaster called Outlaw. It features a 65 mph launch into a top hat, a large amount of interaction with guests in line as well as interaction with theming.
If anybody has any questions, please see my FAQ on the previous page first. And on to the pictures...
The sign greeting visitors - There is a teaser for the new ride on the left side of the sign.
The coaster's entrance, note the signs haven't been put into place yet.
A picture of the launch track overlooking the lake. The rocks provide a barrier as well as a theme.
A picture of the station, it's still under construction.
One of the ride's elements from a backstage area. Taken with permission of course.
Outlaw through the theming. The B&M is Steel Eagle (1999) and the Intamin is Millennium Dragon (2000). A Screamin Swing and an S&S Combo Tower can be seen in this picture.
One of the low-to the ground turns. The coaster in the background is X-Scream (2004). Can you guess what this park is based off of?
3 Intamins in one shot!!! The park seems oddly familiar.
The coaster's logo. I hope you enjoyed my first fictional Photo TR.
Because everybody seems to like Shaft, You can see both Shaft's train as well as Air Raid's train in this picture. Dive Machines are very sexy.
This is a teaser shot for my next update, which will hopefully be soon.
Outlaw with Millennium Dragon in the background. The ride seems to have a more extensive theme than another coaster located in Ohio. EDIT, I forgot to add this picture.
The new ride I'm posting is a Gerstlauer Eurofighter named Grind. The ride and the station is completely finished, and the ride is currently testing. The park, Wild America is the current "roller coaster capital of the world" with 20 operational coasters. The park was owned by Paramount before Cedar Fair bought the property. This fictional Photo TR comes in two parts because I still have two more almost-finished pictures and I really want to post this now.
Grind features four inversions and a 97 degree drop. The ride was originally going to go into a building like Mystery Mine, but I know that Cedar Fair would probably not spend the extra money with theming. The ride is slightly inspired by the "Geronimo" coaster that somebody uploaded here a while ago.
The ligter pictures were done in pencil while the darker ones were done in pen.
Concept for the coaster... I got rid of the frames surrounding some of the track because they took too much tiime to draw. Note the funny lift supports as well.
The entrance to the park. Rides from left to right... Eiffel Tower, X-celerator, Nickelodeon Splat Tower, Grind, Fireball, and Falcon.

Overview of the ride with a testing train.
View of the MCBR to Dive Loop section. The tran is going into the double down.
The entrance to the ride. It is supposed to open sometime next month. The park opens in two weeks.
Part of the pre-lift section, taken from the station.
The ride's finale with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
This is an unfinished "through the trash can" shot of a section of the pre-lift.
A second unfinished picture, this one was taken in the queue line.
Part 4's teaser shot. I will try to finish up the last two pictures and post them tomorrow. I don't color my pictures very often so this is a unique pic.
^ Thank you Flipdude! I was waiting for a big-name TPR artist like you to see my work. I'll definately follow your advice.
Part of the reason some of the buldings look strange is partly because I don't user a ruler. As for the pre-lift picture, I can definately see some wierd angles with the pathway. I'll try to fix that with later updates.
I'm trying to finish up the unfinished pictures and will get them posted as soon as I can access the scanner.
