Pioneer Sky by RadoJavor Pioneer Sky by RadoJavor
My second airplane pic in my current serie. Italian Caproni 3-engined bomber, year 1916. It was one of the best bombers of ww1. I was fascinated how odd and fragile it looks and want to paint it immediately. However there were many brave men who fight in this fragile machines. Done for my relax purely. Thanks for your commnets. i used a simple 3d model as a reference for perpective, and some old photos of this craft.
Done in photoshop cs3 +wacom int -3 cca 15-20 hours.

Hi, since this image is CC-licensed, I was wondering if I could use it on a internal page of a partwork collection sold in newsstands. Do you think this is a "commercial use"? Your image wouldn't appear on the issue's cover, and I'd credit you for it. Let me know, thank you very much! 
Bests,
Emanuele

JUST 20 hours? I envy you. :P This is just epic. It is almost photo-realistic, the airplane, the mountains, the people... everything.
Normally I would have left a much longer comment, but this is too much HD for me to describe.

All in all, I rate this 6/5.

Viva Italia !!

You put in your drawing this sensation that it looks really like the pioneer fightings ! Archaic and weird planes, flying and crashingwe don't know why , but the second more often !! And if it was not already dangerous, they fly in the mountains, i guess, on the Austrian front.
