    Hi Everyone
    Found this forum yesterday since I'm an airplane nut thought it would be interesting to stick around take part.
    My day job is a storyboard illustrator for ad agencies, but I've enjoyed drawing aircraft all my life. Right now I do it for fun (ie- not paid:oops: ). Here's a couple that I've done in the last year (digital - Corel Painter). I'd love to hear your thoughts.
    Cheers,

    Nice one! Any more?

    Being (very!) picky (if I may make so bold!) but the valorous Hopgood (who, by the way, should have also been awarded a [posthumous] VC) was, I understand, further ‘down stream’ when the wing came off. However, I fully appreciate the artistic need to get the dam as the background focus to the picture. (Not picking a fight at all – how could I? I’ve no artistic talent whatsoever!)

    Thanks again folks. I'd love to keep doing these quick things, as the fully rendered colour stuff eats up time that I don't have (I have an unfinished Harvard illustration that I haven't touched in weeks).
    To be honest it's alot more fun as well.
    DML, you're probably right. Even though I have an interest in planes I'm sure there are many of you here that have a better grasp of the historical details than I do. That's another advantage of doing this quick stuff. It's easier to change too there's not as much sweat invested in it.:D
