it is not as awful as i anticipated but i'll redo something similar in the near future [editline]24th March 2012[/editline] but first i want to paint planes
[img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/sabre_ref.jpg[/img] started painting a plane. i love planes but they are so hard to paint [editline]27th March 2012[/editline] oh yeh traced the ref cos i'm just bored and doing nothing at uni today so stressing out trying to get perspective right on a masterfully engineered machine is not what i want to do today sos
oh wow i was just about to ask you if it was gonna be a water colour painting, but then i realized its not even on paper
ummhum is that a good thing hahah
probably it looks like its on paper or cloth or something rather than on ps

Lightning colors are really nice
That looks fantastic But what's that huge out-of-perspective phallus thing coming out of your plane
[QUOTE=MakoSkyDub;35383054]But what's that huge out-of-perspective phallus thing coming out of your plane[/QUOTE] wat [editline]1st April 2012[/editline] oh the picture is taken from the perspective of a refueling aircraft. that's the hose and the connection. it's not out of perspective
Drive was a great movie.

heh just watched drive yesterday, did not connect your picture to that.
it's sooooooooooooooo good now i walk everywhere to the soundtrack
[img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/sheene_wip.jpg[/img] started painting barry sheene, a childhood hero of my dad's, for his birthday

sadly this won't be done in time for my dad's birthday as i've gotta go to work now. ah well, i'll finish it tomorrow [img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/sheene_wip2.jpg[/img]
you should paint his head in instead of whoever that biker is
[QUOTE=Eltro102;35440574]you should paint his head in instead of whoever that biker is[/QUOTE] That would go completely against the whole thought and idea of the gift.
i guess that'd get a laugh but it kinda removes the whole point of the painting if i wanted to paint my dad on a bike i would have just used a photograph of him racing as reference instead of sheene regardless, i can't do it today sadly
To bad, finish it even if it gets 1 day late, i'd be happy anyways.
[img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/sheene_wip3.jpg[/img] looooooooooooooosing the will to live [editline]6th April 2012[/editline] wtf THAT'S how little i did. holy shit that was like 2 hours work. fuck this is why i now hate and have moved away from doing realism and over-rendering
It still looks like sex, keep it up!

i dont think that's necessary, why even draw attention to that area

The F-100's were mostly bare-metal (Aside from the ones in SEA). That should be interesting/fun/rage inducing to paint. Good luck though, you definitely seem to have the skills needed to make it work. I look forward to seeing a finished one.
