Birds Of Prey by S3BR4 Birds Of Prey by S3BR4
I really have no excuse for this deviation, it's a result of my all out sci-fi geekness ^^; So I watched 'Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow' and I figured I really wanted to make something in that style. I actually fogot about it till I did get a nice 3 shot panorama of a bautiful sky and my geek inside remebered my previous idea. So yeah, I just assembled the panorama, got some stock pictures of planes from sxc.hu and went for it. Of course I still needed the enemy planes, wich I did model and render in Bleder 2.41. Took me ages to learn how to model in Blender (Last time I did any 3D was back in the days when Half Life was just released :lol: ) Anyway I finally got my bird like flying wing thingies and just added them to the manip. Sounds simple took me ages though, and I'm still not happy with the enemy planes :shrug:

So please excuse this mindless result of utter geekness ^^;

Great work! Like you I'm a big fan of the movie, even though it wasn't a huge box office hit, which makes me like it even more. FYI the pre-production posters actually showed either a Mk I, II or V as Joe Sullivan's ride.

This is an amazing peice of artwork. It being a photomanip make it all the better too, as you don't often see photomanipulations with such a creative idea.

I think you did a great job with using Blender for those sci-fi aircraft. They remind me a lot of the Stargate movie ones, but that was probably what you were after. You've made it tell a great story too seeing as you have the other plane turning off because it got hit. We just know that the second sci-fi aircraft is going to finish it off.

Great work! :)

Your photomanipulation skills are in fact quite advanced. I honestly thought it was either a full 3D render, or some sort of digital painting. The work is very smooth and the images are well transitioned into each other. If I hadn't read the description, I wouldn't have quite believed it was a manipulation. :) Excellent work.

Looks Really nice. I love the detail and the scenery.


Looks like there's a polygon flipped on the tail, you can see the sky through the plane O.o

Other than that, this peice is freakin amazing

Hmm I just rendered the enemy planes and then pasted them into my photomanip. So it's all the way it should be, I probably just gave them a weird shape hehe

Speed is nothing .... composition is everything !

You have sucessfully rendered a pair of what look to be British Supermarine Spitfire Mark 14's in what could be refered to as "painterly style" illustration art.
There's just enough detail in the foreground aircraft to reflect realism, but not so much as to detract from the emotion of the conflict. Also, your choice of background sky is very approppriate..... light vs. dark....... altogether it is
a powerful image in motion.

In summation, SB3R4, keep up the good work!

Bakakangi

ps: I'm a big fan of Sky Captain..... your art does it justice !
