Proud Old Gal by Lyle462 Proud Old Gal by Lyle462
Goofing around with the Sharpies again. I did a light outline in pencil then went back in with marker to fill the space. Pardon the resolution...I lost a lot while reducing for the site here.

Thank you. I'm pretty fond of her myself. I was a weapons loader for 20 years. The first four was spent on D,G and H models. Good times for sure!

Yeah. Makes me wonder if they could be made relevant again with Dale Brown's mods he created for his stories. That would be a badass looking BUFF too! I miss seeing Strato's here and there.

For a landscaping class, I drew up a landscape design for a functioning B-52 display. My teacher thought it was odd, but he gave it a good grade.

If we had the funding it would probably surprise us both in that regard!

That's cool about your teacher. At least he had an open mind about it.

I wouldn't doubt it!

Yeah, he's a cool teacher. Thinks I'm wierd, but a nice guy. He was kinda used to me turning in weird stuff like that. I once wrote a short essay for him about having a career driving a Zamboni.

Goofing around with Sharpies? That's some pretty serious goofing you got going on there, Lyle!
She looks great! :clap:

Thanks Dan. I have a Bugatti in mind that I want to do the same thing with. I just need a break from all of those little dots for awhile.LOL

I would need a break too!
I am having to be patient with my current drawing. I am drawing a toy car and my Dad's old camera, that has fake leather sides.
Simulating the leather is taking forever!
And you are always welcome!

it's that patience is a real virtue when it comes to producing artwork! :)

The B-52 is an awesome plane, though personally, I prefer World War two aircraft to most planes, they're just better looking.

I think its all the more impressive learning that its done with Sharpies! Sometimes the simplest tools are the best!

This is really cool. How long did this take you to do, if you don't mind me asking ? It is hard to believe that a plane that first flew in the early 50's will be around until probably 2040. Nice job !

Thanks John. Honestly...I didn't keep track of the time. A couple of hours in the evening over about 2 weeks. Maybe more. I'm bad about that sort of thing.
Yep, she's a pretty proven airframe for sure. I worked on the D (tall tails), G and H models. My son enlisted in the AF and leaves in June. He qualified for aircraft crew chief. How cool would it be if he worked on Buffs like his old man!HA
