Some doodles. First one is of Frank and Gregg and the last one is of my old characters Lindenn and Ihodaddh.
And this is why I build 3D ref! There is no way I could’ve gotten the angles right without the airplane model I built… !
When I modeled and drew these aircrafts I asked myself “How the hell do the pilots shoot with the machine guns without shooting at the propeller!?”. I looked it up and apparently the propellers inward side deflects the bullets (Augh! Won’t the pilot get shot then?) but later they were able to synchronize the bullets with the milisecond gaps in the propeller. Amazing early technoloy? Yes.
Sketch from my comic The Din.
An other 3D ref for The Din that I made a few weeks ago! This one got a bit messy… Made quick reference objects for eventual paint and simple edge cuts for the rudders. (This is why it looks like there is pizza planted on the top of the wings…!) This airplane model is based on the Sopwith Camel airplane! First flight in 1916!
Some sketches and studies for the next chapters of The Din. These were made 2011 and 2012.
