    Hello
    Here is a study I made about polished metal surface aircraft.
    I used the famous MiG-15 as a subject, in order to understand and develop new methods of depicting metal polished aircraft.
    I will do a follow on to this one to study the depiction of weathering on aircraft with these kinds of surfaces.
    All comments are most welcome.
    Best regards to all

    Nice job, JP. I esp. like that it's not airbrushed.

    I was trained as a commercial artist, and did quite a few a/c illustrations, so I know how difficult painting bare metal can be.

    Keep'em comin' :)

    Hello
    Thanks to all for your comments.
    This was done in Photoshop; it was done with a high dpi and so it can be printed in a big size without loss of quality: perhaps as great as a A0 size.
    I will use this as a basis for a series of prints of MiG-15 aces.
    Best regards to all.

    I am preparing some data to do a series of Soviet MiG-15 aces of the Korean war; it will be probably be followed by a series of F-86 aces of the same conflict.
    Best regards
