Sky pirates by sketchboook Sky pirates by sketchboook
couple of fighters on routine patrol mission... you can find parts and details of many real planes on this fictional fighter. It is also some kind of tribute to my favorite fighter plane - F-8 Crusader...

I definitely see some Tornado and A-7/F-8, the nozzles look a bit like the Phantom, the position of the ings looks like the Harrier, but the shpe almost looks like an F-15 Eagle

Great job with the motion effects. Looks like they're flying very low over water.

Beautiful and dynamic work!

crusader and phantom yes... but where is harrier and tornado? maybe just some kind of coincidence...

Wow this is pretty cool, I always liked the crusader also, or maybe its that big gaping mouth I liked so much at the front.

yeah the front is like a crusader, the tail i think is a tornado. the jet exhaust, air intake and wings i cant tell though.
i keep thinking the wing is from a tomcat but it looks fixed. maybe cus i had a model tomcat when i was a kid and it had sidewinders in it.
ah well.
sweet image!

wow, the sense of motion is done really well in the piece. Ii don't often see good use of motion blur if that is what you've used. Usually people end up ruining the main focal point using that but you've kept the focus well yet still tied the planes into the background. Good job!
