    I found this digital paintings while surfing on the internet some days ago and although their creator was not a dedicated WWII aviation artist, he did a superb job with these using photoshop.

    Some of the warbird owners have gone with decals instead of actual painted nose art these days.

    I agree with you Shinpachi.
    It's very sad to see talented artists go when they are still so young; you can't stop to think of what kind of paintings that they would have created later in their years is forever lost.

    Certainly a great talent and a real shame to see he has past so soon.

    Echoing Rochie's post, here are the remaining paintings that I managed to find.
    They are part of a collection of paintings he called "Victory Gal Series", Glen Angus was truly a gifted artist.

    Here's a link to Glen Angus' art blog. CGPortfolio - Glen Angus It has some of his work on it. I don't know what percentage of it is there, it may be all of it but I kinda doubt it.

    Anyone know if you can buy those as prints anywhere? Or any website that would make it into a poster?

    He mentioned on his CG portfolio that he sold them as prints, but since he passed away some years ago; I really don't know who might have the rights to sell them.
