Final version with border (to make it a standard paper size for printing)

I have messed about with the pilot and made a few other tweaks. Also optimised it for printing, though if that has worked will only be proven by actually printing it! Still cant make it go full sized on our forum, click it to see.

Note: converting it into a JPEG for the forum has messed with some of the textures around the wires/shadows. This will not happen on the actual drawing!

Here is the second in the series. This is work in progress, there is a whole SE5a missing! Its like spot the ball, guess where it will be..... I think this one will be called Tea and Medals.

PS PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO GET THE FULL PICTURE.

Hopefully I will get is basically finished over this weekend. Its a lot more complex than the last one. To show how the fuselage is curved takes a lot more detail than the slab sided SE5a plus that dragon and tail art was a long winded affair! I think i need to tone down the shadows on the fuselage a little as they overpower the red dragon a little. The text is also WIP. At the moment its written from the SE5a pilots perspective. I have pondered some german......

ANyhoo let me know your thoughts.

Cheers!

Ive taken a short break because I have a new job which involves being away a lot. Been doing some print tests and the Alb drawing needs to be a lot brighter.

Plan to get them sorted and then there are ways of getting posters made. Also I have ideas for more!

Its happening...again....

This is a more final version of Tea and Medals... with the SE5a in this time. Colours and that will look different on everyones screen. I have spent ages trying to modify these for printing, still learning how!

Ive just ordered a canvas print of this through an offer. Its an experiment to see what it looks like....

Im also working on the third drawing, again the Alb is the centre piece.

Keep us in the loop Flashy!

Does the story behind the scene involve the real pilot of the Alb skin? von Hippel's dragon, right?
