I wanted to do a WW2 themed hot rod drawing based on the P51 fighter plane.

So below is the completed line art as well as a few progress pic's -

Thanks for the kind words ....

 

There is the final update and completed project -

So the final piece I incorporated a roundel that I had previously done on Autodesk Sketchbook - the idea being to combine traditional art with digital art. The roundel was digitally placed onto the Hotrod and I found some vintage looking newspaper on the web for the background.

It's a VERY cool piece of art, but I'm not seeing any connection with--or suggestion of--a P-51. :wacko:

Whoa. That is some seriously marketable art. The texture, contrast, color is impeccable. Really the highest quality.

Ah, I get it now. Sort of.

That airplane's paint job is actually sort of a mash-up of two or three or four real WWII Mustangs, with some liberties taken on top of that. So it kind of has the "flavor," but it's not authentic.

BTW, if you'd like to put those big red bombs on your model, I can send you decals. They say DETROIT MISS, not NEVER MISS. I have several sets, as they were the kit decals in the Monogram 1/48 kit for years.
