Damian's art: an update :)


Recommended Posts

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 boltbait.smile.png

I am so glad you posted your older works as well as your newer works, the progress you have made is incredible! I love the last one as well, but I really like them all. I really like this sort of art, but never got into it like so many other things...


Wait! No matter where you go, there you are!

We're all wise guys.

Did someone say family model Valkyries? Well I'm sure someone must have muttered it :)

Continuing my on going joint project with the ever talented Talos I presnt to you two examples for the VF-1D+. You can think of it more or less like the F/A-18D, it can be used as a trainer or as an attack/FAC veritech.

1. The "Virign Road" VF-1D. Painted up in Max Jenius' colours and flown by him with his new bride as the GIB or should I say BIB?


2. Here's machine 102 from VT-102. This is the first Veritech flown by Hikaru/Rick :)


I hope you like them!!!
