A new commercial illustration

It has been a while since my last post. I've been busy doing film effects work, but I still take time for my freelance projects. This is one I finished recently. It was a bear to do because of all the detail and elements that had to be included. It was also more difficult because I am living away from my home studio, so I had to do this with my smaller tablet and without my secondary monitor. But I think it came out okay. Actually, I'm rather pleased with it. I get asked this all the time, so this one took about 67 hours to create, including comps, getting source material, and calls with the client.

What is it, you ask? Well, it's a piling driver, making a retaining wall of Z-sheet piling for flood protection. Because it's in a residential area, this particular driver is designed to pound the piles into the ground more quietly.
