          Here are a couple that I have dug out of my digital archives.

          Always Like the old "Frightner" This one is a Mk31 done up as a ficticous airline - so I could do my own paint scheme and not have the correctness cops chasing after me.

          Had the dubious pleasure of working on the only long nose Mk31E in Canada. Yes it was a Mk31 - CF-QWJ (Ex G-AMLP - BAF) This was 1 of 2 aircraft that were modified from standard Mk31 configuration with the leftover bits from the Mk 32 production line. Have a couple more images as well somewhere in the Vault. Some info here http://www.lambair.com/page28/page4/page46/index.html This was the company I worked for in the 1970s'.

          The Halifax is done up as my Dads' favorite aircraft - he spent a lot of time in this aircraft during the summer of '44. He was Captain on a 4 engine bomber before he had a drivers licence!!! He claimed he liked the Halifax better than the Lancaster - he had more time in the Hallibag and never flew the Lancaster on Ops. Claimed the Lanc was like driving a great big Street car - while the Hallibag was more like a bus. He expressed stong sentiments against all those whose tried to bash either the Lanc, Halifax, or Bomber Command - he was known for speaking his mind. Whatever he may have thought, the real issue was that he was there and I wasn't!!! He passed away just after the aircraft attack on the Twin Towers - I asked him what he thought of the events and his only comment was "Doesn't even come close to what we did one night to Stuttgart!" - he could be pretty crusty at times.

          Both backgrounds are done using a program called Bryce. You can do magic with Bryce.

          Aircraft done in Ulead PhotoImpact - a very good alternative to Photoshop for the digitally impaired - like me!!! I didn't grow up with computers - hell we still used slide rules when I went to high school - but like any canny old dog I have workarounds for almost every thing I need to do - just takes me a lot longer than a "Young Un!!!

          Enjoy

                Mark H,the movement and power in those pictures are really quite incredible.Are they drawings?
                They are a story in themselves.

                I've started one which is W I P ,i know it has many faults but it's all part of learning and most of all having funbetter than watching TV anyway

                  Thanks Trumper.
                  Yes & yes. They are sketched on the computer using Corel Painter X.
                  Myself & a buddy (also an airplane geek) are full time illustrators and are playing hookie with a kind of artistic improv on our blog. Not sure where it's going, but it's a nice diversion.

                      Wiek

                      These are incredible pictures This one of the Spit attacking the He111's is just insperational. It's not the same though doing them in CGI as it is doing them by hand.

                      Very good to look at still though

                        Ok, my turn again. I have done a few since I last posted my other drawings on here so here they are. All charcoal with a little help from some lead in places.

                        Lost Pacific Warrior
                        Photobucket

                        Broken Bird
                        Photobucket

                        110's Over the Estuary
                        Photobucket

                        Blessing the Boys
                        Photobucket

                        Maintaining the Mustang
                        Photobucket

                        Fuelling the 109
                        Photobucket

                        Coming Home
                        Photobucket

                        Bears Over the Valley
                        Photobucket

                        I have to admit, I have my favourite and thats the last one, Bears Over the Valley. Three F8F Bearcats flying over the USS Valley Forge after returning from a mission on April 15th 1943. Their is just something about the character of it that makes it such a special drawing to me. 12 hours to complete over 3 days and have to admit it looks stunning in the black frame I have mounted it in.

                          I don't know what to say,these pictures regardless of format are absolutely incredible.
                          I can't believe Robmacs last ones posted aren't photographs
                          Charcoal,never tried that,being left handed i would smear it everywhere

                            Some amazing work here

                            I had a dabble last year although I do not profess to be anywhere near as good as some on here!

                                My friend don't let the fact your left handed deter you from using charcoal. I to was having the same problem until I brought a tin of spray fixer. It's a case of do a bit then spay it and so on. Works for me and works well.

                                Thanks for the comments by the way

                                          Thanks mate. Were all so used to seeing these aircraft being painted in the air or being shot down, but thought it would be a different approach and quite frankly I think it paid off
