These look great, guys.
Tomercs, I like the way you came up with the design. I enjoy sketching random patterns and trying to come up with a design but I've never seen anyone doing it for CA weeklies.
Your final design is amazing, simple, elegant, catchy. Great work.
Anyways, here's my WIP:
Nice job everyone; great entries. When I finally managed to upload mine I figured that my monitor needed to be calibrated ... I should have considered that earlier but I suppose we learn from our mistakes. Anyways, yoitisi bring up the next one !
Long time listener, first time caller . Nowhere near finished yet, and I am still trying to work out the full design. It’s basically an aircraft (doh) working from a yet un-invented but not impossible propulsion system. The idea is that instead of dropping bombs, it shoots semi-guided shells at extreme velocity from high altitude. Need to finish designing the wings and cannon, do a top view and maybe a dynamic view of the cannon getting used. Then add some proper shading and polish with a few more details dropped in. I know its not technically a traditional bomber, just trying to do something different that would achieve the same result.
Anyway, would be nice to get some feedback. Be gentle
Very original idea; would love to see it complete. Keep it up
Hi Everyone, another IDW virgin here.
Tomercs - Awesome, I could see that in a classic Bond movie. Can't wait to see the color on it.
Sady - Very tough machine, nice rendering.
Orion9282 - Wow, yours is really sweet. Nicely done!
I saw this topic on Friday and decided to give it a shot. Here's my initial sketch,after I did the top view I decided I wanted to know what was going on with the front and side.
Crits and suggestions welcome.
Updates and new work:
Available for freelance
Hey, this round is looking really good!
Kosta, just saw your design in the finals. It looks great, very believable.
John, thanks, glad you like it! Pleased you dropped the background into the final design, it softens up the harshness of the WIPs
Sady, thanks. Great addition of colour to your final piece, maybe the perspective is a bit off in your line work, but the colour adds good mass.
Orion, that is one badass bomber! Looks like some super heavy armour. great stuff.
Miran, what a compliment - thank you! Yeah, the small thumbnails helped a lot, and they're so quick to do too. Your front 3/4 view is a great angle, reminds me of a harrier jump jet.
Danbot, cool start. I recon the concept is pretty sound. AC130 Gunships do a similar thing. Plus those graphics on the bottom left are wicked, you could get some on the bodywork when you're done!
I don't know if scribbleHEAD's reading this thread, but his Sukhoi in the finals is ace!
Ooh, Steve, thanks! I'd love to see it in a bond movie!
Hehe thanks Tomercs - always reading, just didn't get to post any WIP's sadly
Think this is a far as I can take it atm. Still fairly new at using PS to draw from scratch, even though ive been using it for ages. Still trying to find my style if you get what I mean. In my head its sort of like orions style, but a little less controlled, but it ends up coming out like this, which looks too cartoony to me :/. If I had more time (or didnt faff about so much with it) I would of added some more features, the top view or a blue-printish diagram. Oh, and a few more of the nice graphics tomercs liked .
I had a whole of made up mumbo jumbo to go with it. Like how it stays stable while shooting, ground teams aiming the cannon by remote or painting targets and all that sort of stuff. But I would like it if someone with a little more PS painting knowledge could tell me what Im doing wrong here. But I think ive got my lighting and shadow placement not too far off (sqwint).
Steve Somers: Don't forget to post your entry in the finals thread too! I can't take it to poll if it's not in there. Find the thread here: IDW #119 Tactical Bomber - Finals thread
Maragnarok: If you read this, would you mind resizing your image and make it a little smaller? It's hard to watch an image if you have to scroll up and down and sideways to see all of it. Thanks.
To everyone: The deadline for this round is today, so I will close this round in about 8 hours from now. Make sure you've finished your finals before that time!
