Starstrutter by RadoJavor Starstrutter by RadoJavor
As promised, one interesting wwI plane. I paint it because I really like the unusual design. Its an austria-hungarian figter nicknamed Starstrutter or flying coffin:)
Second thing is that Im coming from the same city as the pilot of this plane. He was the best pilot from hungary in wwI. On the picture he is defending the port on adriatic against Italian bombers.

Technically, I had a 3d model done by my friend which was used for basic perspective. Rest is painting in photoshop with a big help from custrom brushes done by other frined. But generally I went to sligtly different and more dramatic style. So dont know if it was succesfull, you can tell me how you like it. Or dislike:)

As always, my response is: how did he manage another one? Its another amazing piece, and im really glad you chose this era, i did a drawing recently of the red baron which was going decently, but i didnt finish it... neways, wonderful piece, and the idea that someone would dislike nething that you do is completely preposterous!! great job!

Woah, impressive paintwork! That is an unusual plane indeed, especially as for gun placement 0.o

Are those torpedo nets, next to the ship?

Utterly amazing. That is all I can think of, I note you gave it a more interesting gun design :P (or, was that there already? I don't remember)
