    The way you've cropped it locks it into the picture plane and makes it motionless.

    Sirk,

    Elwell makes a good point. Also maybe adding some heat "blur" behind the jet to give it a more life like feel, other then that my only complaint would be the back, near the jet, seemes a bit smudged?

    Not sure if thats just me, hope that helps a bit.

    Should I expand the size of the background?? I do agree though
    Yeah with the smudge stuff I was trying to capture more motion-etc. but its prolly a bit tooo smudged. Thanks for the help.

    One way of surmounting the limitations of a single reference photo is to collect as many others as it takes for you to understand what the object actually looks like, not just how this one photo shows. There are a lot of visual assumptions in the image that aren't really indicative of the subject.

    There has to be more than one F-16 picture out there.

    After you've expanded the image and given the plane more space, you should only blur the background as the focus is on the plane so you'd get a better read. Here's what i mean

    The car is all in focus but the background is a blur. This will make it seem like its flying really low to the ground, so leave the blur out altogether if you dont want that.

    Thanks for the input-- dogfood-I like your point alot i did want to add more of them- flying in some kind of cool formation-or having bombs going up behind it. thanks-i will find more refrences.

    Peter-- i agree-some of the plane looks blurry because i used lame brushes and just played with layering colors and it diddnt flow well. I will expand the thing and add another jet! thanks guys

    Just copying a photo isn’t going to teach you much – and not to mention it’s a cop-out in comparison to what the person who actually took the photograph of the plane had to do to get the original image. Try looking at multiple images of this type of plane to get a solid 3D understanding of the shape. Then, sketch the same kind of plane from different angles, and experiment with your own lighting and backgrounds.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    I was working with a photo just to practice this "drawing from life" thing. I wanted some kind of refrence. I work with my own angles and lighting alot--but not in photoshop. This is more of a study that a peice.-- it IS a study.

    Actually, I meant more of what Seedling said, using many references for one image, as opposed to drawing multiple airplanes in formation.

    Well to me the wings feel to small, the F-16 is a rather grascious plane, so either the body is abit to bulky or the wings are abit to small, it's kinda hard to tell without seeing the reference (atleast for an amateur like me), but the wings are defently bugging me (mainly the one closest to us.. but yhea.)

    Darkstar-I agree. the wings are too fat for the plane. i acidentally made them bulky with my dumb layering technique. Thanks

    Dogfood-Yeah-I enjoy creating compositions from the general understanding of an object-I do it alot with the human form-but this was just a general study to try and capture somehat realism thou photoshop-not to create a really stimulating composition. thanks though-I agree with you.
