    Its been a while..but here is my latest WIP, plus a short story on the background to the drawing


    I play NHL 10 on the 360 online, we have a team that play with each other against human opponents.. a new guy joined about a month ago called Charlie. His in game player was called C. Nungesser. I thought I recognised the name and asked one of the others if he was a hockey player , as I knew the name from somewhere!
    Well, the answer was a resounding no....when Charlie came back on I asked him { I had remembered by that time that Nungesser was a WW1 pilot } why he had named his player C Nungesser, was that after Charles Nungesser of WW1 fame? He said yes it was the WW1 pilot..and his reason...well it turns out it was his Great Uncle. Quite a character if I may add... http://www.theaerodrome.com/aces/france/nungesser.php

    Anyways, the latest drawing is of Great Uncle Charlie and so far Im quite happy with the way its going...

        Practice...and buy a good book , the main things to go wrong with faces are the proportions and main facial features. The size of the head as well can cause some problems, the human eye can recognise people they know from distance by the size and shape of the head / hair style.

            Being as this thread was originally started because of me and because it has been a while, I thought I best show my two latest creations.

            This Skyraider picture is going into print in A3 size plus is also going to be available in a limited edition A1 mounted canvas for a very reasonable price of just under 100.00




            If anyone is interested in a print of the Raider then please feel free to PM me

              and this is my WIP. I need to redo the smaller of the Phantoms and the tail on the Herky bird is too big but it's getting there slowly, I may even paint this one

                            Not sure whether these would actually be considered as 'art' but I thought I'd post it anyway.

                            Attached are a couple of profiles I recently completed (out of the full set of 40 or so) for a forthcoming book on the Hornet. Although authored by Tony Buttler, the book has had major input from fellow forumite and Hornet wrangler dcollins103 too.

                            (Cheeky plug - the book is due to be published in early March I believe )

                                  might have been missed so I'll chuck this up
                                  Push enough pixels around and it'll look like an aeroplane profile.

                                        I did a few paintings of the family dogs for the family at Christmas and then seemed to run out of time for any more.
                                        But now i've decided to pick the paintbrushes up again and try an aeroplane this time.
                                        I made a complete pigs ear of the planning but i reached the point where i had to put paint on or i would become scared in a way of starting again.There is nothing worse than staring at a blank canvas.
                                        Anyway a few days in and pretty much at the fiddling stage now as i have reached a point where i,m not sure what to do and how to do it anyway
                                        As ever all constructive comments and criticisms welcome,
