  1. Bristol Beaufort N-AW, of 42 Squadron RAF.
  2. Not been drawing for a while so thought I'd update the Thunderbolt II to celebrate 100 Years of Indiana ANG. The Mig 29 was inspired by the stories of the Ghost of Kiev. Seemingly now debunked by the Ukrainian AF, but still a good story.
  3. I love the aircraft from between the wars, they experimented and tried all kinds of airframes and paved the way for the aircraft we see today. One of those was the De Havilland DH 88 Comet. Three of these thoroughbreads were built for the 1934 air race from England to Australia. All done in Designer and Photo with oodles of Perlin noise in the background.
  4. Fairchild Thunderbolt II of the 122nd Fighter Wing, 'The Black Snakes' of the Indiana Air National Guard. This is an update to my previous raster version and I'm pleased with the improvement.
  5. First attempt at a more technical illustration... The Globe Swift.
  6. Combining three of my aircraft, bit of an experiment.
  7. Here's a couple more that I've just about finished. Still learning the lessons; don't know if I'll ever finish learning!!! Lancaster of 207 Squadron and Hurricane of 85 Squadron.
  8. Journey to the edge of space. Considering it was a design by Walter Dornberger in the 40ties the X15 holds the speed record of Mach 6.1, a record that still stands today. Aircraft done in Affinity Designer and background with Affinity Photo and lots of gradients and blends, texture brushes, cloud brushes and lots of sweet, sweet perlin noise
  9. Well here's No.2, hopefully learning from the mistakes I made on No1. But still a lot to take in. I couldn't start my vector collection properly until I had a Spitfire included!!
  10. I´m quite enjoying creating these bi-planes in Affinity, keeping track of the layers is challenging though.
  11. Albatross Sky. I have always wanted to try my hand on a Albatros DV, but the difficulty of the lozenge camouflage put me off, but seeing that I have time on my hands right now I though: "why not?" To say that there are a few layers is an understatement, I stopped counting somewhere between four and five hundred. I am however quite pleased with finding a way to create woodgrain without a chrome filter
  12. Here's my first effort using Affinity Designer. I used Corel Draw in the dim and distant past and started to use Paintshop Pro for the last six or seven years. After upgrading from PC to iMac decided to go to vector drawing rather than raster, as the clarity and sharpness was my main requirement. Must say I love the software, and am fairly happy with the result so far. Still making basic mistakes and will hopefully learn more with the tutorials and any comments from more experienced members that I can glean here. So here it is, nearly didn't post this after looking at some of the stunning work that people have posted here, but hey! Got to start somewhere! I still have some shading and rendering to do on it but am happy with the result so far. The F-16 is the vector and I've included an A-10, my last raster drawing which shows the difference in clarity that I'm after.
  13. A little fun project to stave the boredom away. This pretty little WACO is stationed in Rheineck at the Altenrhein flying museum in Switzerland. It´s artwork from a picture I took a few weeks back and it was 2D´d in Affinity Designer. The clouds are a mixture of Cloud brushes and Perlin noise in Affinity Photo. All hail the Perlin noise.
  14. What to do on a boring rainy weekend? I thought I would try and get some more milage out of the UFO pictured in "Contact" and revisit "Close encounter" by adding oodles of detail to the Conny.The Conny herself is from a picture I took of the Breitling Conny at her base in Basel. I think it turned out well.
  15. In my humble opinion the Bugatti 100P was the most beautiful airplane never built. Ettore Bugatti´s 100P was built as an unlimited racer in 1939 and was not completed by the outbreak of the war. It remained in storage until 1971 when it was restored. In 2016 a replica sadly crashed killing the pilot.
  16. In my humble opinion the F104 Starfighter is along with the Super Constellation, the Spitfire, the Concord and the achingly gorgeous Bugatti 100P one of the most beautiful aircraft ever built. But this beauty came with a price, 270 of 2000 built were lost, earning the F104 the nickname: Tentpeg, or Sargfighter (ger. coffinfighter) or more ominously: The widow maker.
  17. In my fantasy the Broadsword is a plane built to specifications of the Royal Flying Corps for an allweather fighterbomber. There are the traits of five aircraft in the Broadsword, see if you can find them all. It´s also a test if the Perlin noise can replace PS´s difference clouds... Why yes it can, and then some. The clouds and the Broadsword´s cammo for instance is pure perlin noise.
  18. Here is a fun thing to do. Each aircraft is a mashup of three or four different aircraft, your job is to fine out which. The first is the Harland & Wolf HW160 tempest, and the second one the Handley Page firestreak. Have fun
  19. The ME 109 was a great warbird to fly, but the narrow spaced landing gear made it very difficult to land. I have had a picture of the ME 109- E in the museum in Schleißheim for a while with the idea of doing a ME with the yellow nose. After getting the wirework done and the basic colouring I went ape with sweet sweet perlin noise to give me that grungy look.
  20. I have always liked the clean lines and the form of America´s first jet fighter, the Lockheed P80 Shooting Star. This has been done by switching between Designer and Photo and I am getting the shading the way I want to, but I really need to keep the layers under control, after the first 200 I lost track.
  21. Hello, When I add a live perspective filter to an embedded document in Affinity Photo, I can't select dual plane. Am I doing something wrong or is there a good reason for this? Thanks in advance! Bauke
