Oh my! The stance here is striking! Going off the edge of the page with this, as you did with the Spitfire, really increases the dramatic impact of the drawing. But it's the great foreshortening of the fuselage that really gets me with this. You pulled it off perfectly! And, of course, you filled the piece with a multitude of values and gradients as you always do! One beautiful piece of airplane art! Very strong piece of work!
Thanks but it's just a matter of different styles really. I like your technique (bold style and contrast) and to be honest...I couldn't do it. Like comparing apples and oranges buddy. Two styles that are both pretty darn cool. This is what keeps the world spinning. Things would get pretty boring if we all drew the same way eh.
