Its designed to be part of a larger series to give the impression of a Graphic novel page, though each image is supposed to be stand alone as well.

The following is a rough draft of a 6 panel 'page' featuring the three I've done so far. The other shots are draft, expecially the last one as I want the pilot waving in salute at the alb.

Its all very time consuming though. Each picture is at least 40-50 hours

Cheers Guys. I have an insane plan to get 6 of these finished, printed at 100 x 70 cm and hung on one wall as a giant single image!

Halfway there....

Its was Lichtenstien that got me started! I was looking for posters for the man cave when I saw Whaaam! by Lictenstein and thought... how hard can it be?


Admittedly I have a power computer and ROF to create the scenes for me!

My next one has rockets in.... and a train!
