Can't get enough of your high detailed and realistic work. Again composition, light and colors match, the figther so close makes it dynamic, you can feel the warm air and smell the jet fuel when it passes. I know how it smells, from '83 till '85 I was first a corporal then a seargent in the Royal Dutch Airforce (not as a pilot, but weapons department). I've seen many take off close by (5-10 meters), it's a thrill, you don't know what is happening to your body when a Northrop NF5 takes off with after burner (the Northrop NF5 is just relative small fighter compared to a F16/F15 etc.)
This image brings back memories from that era, and ofcourse is now my favorite piece.
i guess he the answer to that would be : practice practice and more practice,looking up online tutorials, reading digital art bloggs and magazines and asking other deviants who actually want to help us few who dont know shit from were to start!
did I ever mention your work reminds me of *Hideyoshi? because this work in particular reminds me of him now... lol I hope you don't think I'm belittling you but that remark, your work is very inspiring!
