Aerial Fighter by MeckanicalMind Aerial Fighter by MeckanicalMind
Another design in my "flying vehicles" series.

This one was a bit different in that it is a "plane" instead of some kind of star fighter. I pretty much went to town on this thing.

A few notes:

Overview of Process: 3D rough Sketch>PS Line Drawing> PS Lighting Pass> PS texture and painting> PS post levels and other adjustments/tweaks.

I didn't render out the gun that much because i felt it wasn't that important to the overall design. Its there so you know its there.

I put "stealth" serration edged exhaust ports... because the just look really cool. This is not really a stealth fighter.

The decals were grabbed from an old model kit sheet, they don't have meaning other then what fits in context.


Based off of this 3D rough I did last night : [link]

if you were to give this a designation like how the US military does with all aircrafts, what would you call this?

This is elegant, and captures a certain early Cold War aesthetic very well, while still being something new. If you wanted to add a little more color to it, you might consider discoloring the metal around the engine slightly- there's a certain purple blush on some of the bare metal F-105s that's very striking.

Thank you for sharing.

The code on the wings I believe should be flipped to where the are readable from behind the plane. However I could be wrong.

Descript says he modeled first, then painted over it in a painting app. That's not technically texturing, but hey.

I thought the same thing when I first saw it. I've been on a Galactica kick lately and this looks a lot like a viper, but with longer wings.
