Hello,

I took a lot of inspiration from beatifull aircrafts here, so I am trying to start draw/paint again after long time. This is my first attempt, Slovak bf 109 g-6, 1944, with pencil. I have to learn and practice a lot, so any comments/advices are welcome

Thanks,

Tomas

Looks really good. Two small points - make sure you are consistent with shadows (beneath the tailplane and the intake on the side of the engine), and remember that when you go for strong shadows, you will get strong highlights too. Keep 'em coming.

Keep practising - not a bad restart . The wing looks a bit unreal and the fuselage is maybe a bit shallow in depth at the cockpit .
I can see that you know a fair bit about pencil sketching .
I look forward to seeing more .

Thanks for comments, I am starting to work on another picture, hopefully better. And I am waiting for book, "How to draw and paint aircrafts like a pro", I hope I will learn a lot from it.

You may wish to read this article before getting involved with DG.

Andrew Whyte looks to me to be a superb artist and I have no doubt you will learn a lot of valuable information from his book .
I only flag up the article above to warn of some ossible issues with the descriptive geometry referred to in the book .
Joe De Marco was also a superb artist and devised his own Geometric Projection method which a few of us in here have used to good effect .

Thank you Neil,

interesting article. Obviously, it is not easy to draw proper airframe, at least for me. It was hard to prepare shape of that bf 109, I rubbed and redrew a lot and result is still somehow inaccurate.

Sure - it's never easy ! Keep going and it will all come right in the end!

Looks good Tomas, although I would like to see more of the wing showing.
