Re: Slayer's Crappy Used Ship Lot
I'll keep that in mind, tbh I'm just using a .5mm mechanical and occasionally a No 2 pencil to shade things I don't have much in the way of formal training .   Though I suppose it might be worth investing a little effort in getting better :D

Well your anatomy and your detailing are pretty good. I can't draw humies that good yet unfortunately and I'm prone to never doing a finished drawing, I always just do rough sketches. You've also got a pretty good handle on perspective.

But from one artist to another I'd say keep challenging yourself, keep growing.

Its my baby



I gotta admit I really love this bird even if it is somewhat over the top.  Tractor/Pusher V12 liquid-cooled aero-engines turning contra rotating props. Two synchronized 20mm cannons in the nose and three 50 caliber machine guns in each wing.  I took elements from the P-51 Mustang, Westland Wyvern, F4U Corsair and Do 335 Arrow putting her together.


You can listen to this while you look at her.

Re: Slayer's Crappy Used Ship Lot
Erm not exactly.  While I don't think tractor/pusher and contra rotating props were ever put together on the same chassis both are proven concepts:

Re: Slayer's Crappy Used Ship Lot
Given the weight of the two engines and double prop mechanisms, the wings should be bigger to make it able to take off from a normal runway :P

Awesome drawing though, as always :yes:

Re: Slayer's Crappy Used Ship Lot
Very cool concept on the latest drawing. Looks like it'd be right at home in "The Sky Crawlers".

One thing though, no way would synchronized guns be possible with contra-rotating, four bladed propellers. North American couldn't make them work with one four bladed prop on the Mustang, which is why the P-51 versions with that prop only had wing guns.

Search YouTube for Jon Gnagy. There's a few episodes of his "Learn to Draw" show from the 1950's on there. Other good YouTube searches, learn to draw and how to draw, followed by the subject you're interested in, like airplanes, aircraft, perspective etc.

There was another guy with a TV drawing show I used to watch on PBS in the 70's, but I can't remember his name or the name of the show. He used pencils and charcoal like Jon Gnagy.

You got a source for that?

Re: Slayer's Crappy Used Ship Lot


A Wolfen concept I did for Shadows of Lyat.  Funny enough I never played Star Fox so my designs for them tend to be a little off the beaten path.

I've got a few more things cooking including a Leman Russ Demolisher MBT and I'm toying with a compiling a set of sketches displaying Langschwert wards.

I just knocked this out in about 45 minutes. What do you think so far?

I'd like to see what someone else makes out of it based on your drawing, so I'm attaching the model as it is right now.

Roll out the power carts!  Jump starting the art.  Here is my kick off project, North American P-51B Mustang.



Hopefully this is the start of a new run of artwork.

Re: Slayer's Crappy Used Ship Lot
Very nice Mustang! Refreshing to see one that's NOT the D model. Very few pre-D P-51 planes exist these days.

I got a few sketches I made a long time ago, for WWII era, but none of them would come close to the quality of your work.

Re: Get your pitchforks and torches it's Heretic Burnin' Time!
While Freespace 2 was pretty amazing game I was never to jazzed about the Terran Fighter designs for the FS2 era.  Blasphemy I know.  The Great War era craft where pretty iconic and look like functional bad ass birds but in FS2  :v-old: went a little off the wall IMHO.  So on a whim I decided profane the gods and do my take on some of the GTVA's stable.  I tried to work the functional look of the FS1 designs back into the ships as well as give them a unified F-22/35 texture look.
