d4m1an Posted March 13, 2011 Share Posted March 13, 2011 (edited) Hi All! I picked up Paint.NET about 3 years ago to try my hand at speculative aviation profiling, here was my first ever profile. It is an SH-360 ( a mash up of SH-3 and UH-60 parts) done up in a fictional South African coast guard scheme: I then not only discovered layers but also this form and the Simmers paintshop. With the guys from my fav haunt urging me on I tentatively took steps to improve my game so to speak. Leading to works like this Ausie F-14: And this VF-0: Next came the awkward stage of high lighting and shadows (I'm not a trained artist) which was...interesting. The F-4 Phantom being my first victim: The more I played with the program and the more I learnt from others the more my skills grew, I started drawing my own line art such as the RA-5 Vigilante: I have since changed the way I do my high lighting. The lastest pieces I've done are my OV-1A Mohwak and a collabarative Macross VF-1 Valkyrie project with a very talented line draughtsman going by the moniker of Talos. The OV-1: Project Valkyrie VF-1J: I hope to post some more up in the near future Edited March 17, 2011 by d4m1an Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
