Hi John, Very cool image of this airplane. Love how you show the motion of the propeller in the shot. I like the angular placement of the plane too. Very Nicely Done! :o) Helvi

Great job of perspective and proportions. The detail on the undercarriage and wheels is wonderful. The propeller movement is very nice and makes me feel like it's revving up for takeoff. Very well done.

I like your use of colored pencils. The accuracy of the way you drew the plane is great! I like the propellers and how you gave the effect of them turning. I feel the sky has interesting colors but could of been blended more so there wasn't such a sharp and definite contrast where one color ends and the other starts since it's making it hard to determine what is going on in the sky.

I like the way you applied the color pencil strokes here, very expressive. You also give us details in a essence style. I know I have mentioned the element of oil sticks over the color pencil which would give it a cool affect.Nice rendering skills.

I just reviewed another one of your pieces. I like the attention to detail. I can almost feel those propellers moving the air. Short story: I supervise students that want to become teachers. The last lesson I observed was about the wind. How you can feel it, but not see it. In your art I can see the effects the wind is having using the propellers. So, good job with that. The part that confuses me a bit is the sky. I think there is too much contrast of colors without a reason for it being there. The shading of the blue stops so abruptly, and then there is all of the yellow. I read through your notes to see if I could figure it out, but I couldn't. Overall, it is a good job, though.

Great work on this one John. A great rendering of this famous plane.

I remember watching Black Sheep Squadron and Pappy Boyington.

It reminds me of my time in the Army as an instructor. I had 12 Army Instructors in my group and as the Course Manager I always took good care of my guys. They started calling me "Pappy" and it stuck with me for many years.

Great drawing and thanks for the memories John ~ Steve

Great colors used here John. You have fine details on this plane. The movement of the propellers is incredible.
I believe I see the pilots head and his hand giving the wave for take off.
Fantastic work John ;)
