Hi all, my first post

Here is some things that I have done, most have a SciFi background but I do enjoy making planes.
Quite a few are inspired by Rodger Dean and recently I tried a Chriss Foss kind of space ship. hope you like.
The first one is called "Redstone stack" then "Panorama" below is "Event Horizon" and at the bottom is Close encounters.
The plane is a English Electric Fireball and is made out of four period aircraft, see if you can get them all.

Re: Hi all, my first post

Number two has a nice nineties feel to it. The ship itself is very Trek Workbee like.

Re: Hi all, my first post

Wow I like these all!
The Jupiter like planet with the tail and the jet and space ship (TWA what a blast from the past) are the ones that really appealed to me, but they are all really wonderful.
Welcome and please post again.

Re: Hi all, my first post

All look very good. Please tell us more about your process. By the clean lines I'm guessing this is digital.

Re: Hi all, my first post

Slammer, these are gorgeous! I also paint space scenes and draw aircraft, and I love that Connie!

As to the EE, the only plane I can recognize is the F-104, and perhaps what may be parts of a MiG-19!

Well done F-104 and a MIG-19, actually a MIG-21 but close enough, the weapons pod and underbelly is a Phantom and the aft section is the English Electric Lightning.

Itīs Digital...
For most part I have a picture that I take and vectorize the heck out of it, the Conny is actually the Breitling Conny and the picture was taken at Basel Airport. The SpadXIII is in the Brussels museum.
I use Illustrator to get my vectors and basic colouring then off we mouse to Photoshop and go wild, usually I have around 150 to 200 layers of shading and because I never name the bloody things I generally get annoyed when I need to find the layer of some obscure shade. Apart from that it is music depending on my mood, Tangerine Dream for the more esoteric ones at the moment

Re: Hi all, my first post

The method seems to work for me, but lately I have been playing around with Affinity Photo and Affinity Design as I donīt wish to go into the cloud but I donīt have anything worth posting with AF until now. So for the moment I will stick with Adobeīs finest.
Here are two older ones, Deanīs Dragon, I am a great fan of Rodger Dean and this is my take on his Dragons and the bottom one is what I call the Vitruvian Biomech, both were designed in Illustrator and finished in Photoshop

Re: Hi all, my first post

Enjoyable to see your process.
Love the Roger Dean tribute one, very cool, I always think of Rodney Matthews as being in that same cool style, both are wonderful!
Really great stuff you have here and I'm enjoying the show.

That Vitruvian Biomech is clever, I really like that.

Re: Hi all, my first post

Those are cool. I do a lot of digital painting but never learned vector. You can also post in the digital forum. It's been pretty quiet lately, activity there kind of comes in waves.
