    Environment: Aerial

    Started off as a quick sketch I did months ago which I always kinda liked, so I decided to tighten it up and, well... add vehicles. Never drawn or painted any kind of craft before, and I used a very simple grey 3D render for a starting point for these, instead of linework, just to make sure the perspective was atleast partially decent.

    Hope you enjoy, and I'm always happy for critique

    Thanks for looking

    i think the plainness of the sky is detracting from an otherwise fantastic piece... also you could do with a slightly more dominant foreground element, it looks a little like a 'stage' right now.

    Great painting skills.

    I love it, the sky looks a little boring as some other have already pointed out but apart from that it's lovely. The rocks on the right side looks awesome. Good job!

    ^Maybe croutons, but not egg yolk.

    As an environment, this is a job well done. To me, it's bland. Let's see the flames being emitted from behind the jet. Some clouds or birds would make a difference to this backround too.

    Keep doing you

    This is really neat! and even from a non-professional point of view I agree that the sky is a bit distracting with its emptyness.

    Good work, like what a few others said, maybe the rocks need some more detail in terms of shadowing,texture etc.

    Very nice. Familiar enough to be recognizable, yet somehow still "other worldly". Good job.

    Very nice work. The edges on the rocks are hard all around making them look 2D. Try softening edges where the hard light isn't hitting th eoblect this way you get a realistic look. Other than that top notch work.
