    Hi,
    Finally finished this piece only 8 months after I posted a WIP here , embarrassingly slow to say that least. Some new photos from 1945 necessitated a rework of the ground objects and I decided to go with autos that the fighter pilots would be more apt to drive. With a nod to Michael Turner (one of my favorites), here's "The Birth of the Grovers", all digital using ArtRage Studio Pro.



    Hopefully I've got some momentum and can aspire to 2 paintings a year .

            The art of a newby.

            Hello all, I'm Alan Spears,long time stalker,new to this site. My passion is airliner & general aviation,all in acrylic on stretched canvas. I recognise a few names from ehangar. This thread seems to have gone dry,so,here's some of my art. [IMG]

              OK,just having a play around with various sizes. The colours & sharpness are way better in real life.

                  My first attempt at vector art using a free little open source program called Inkscape. Downloaded it yesterday and knocked this up during the evening.

                  Not quite to Clint Mitchell's standards but I'm pretty happy for a first attempt.

                  Sorry about the big red copyright symbol. Getting tired of my pictures ending up being used without asking.

                        Your too modest Clint

                        I actually used that sites colour swatches for the colours so no so sure how accurate they are - the trainer yellow feels a bit orangey to me.

                        I usually do Photoshop work to texture 3D models so this was a bit of a challenge doing the entire thing in vector art without touching Photoshop! I was amazed that the small highlight on the body actually worked!

                          Thank you, I couldn't imagine creating profiles in Vector bit too much effort for the weathering. I do my baselines in Vector then everything else in Photoshop.

                                That's a scary place full of nutters.


                                Meanwhile here's something a bit more modern
                                Push enough pixels around and it'll look like an aeroplane profile.

                                          I think I had this one on before but put it on the wrong thread. Started two years ago, completed this year with the help of the winter snow. 20'' X 30'', Oil on board.
