F4 Phantom II - Ace Combat 4 and Area88 Colors by HandofManos
F4 Phantom II - Ace Combat 4 and Area88 Colors
Have been working quite some time on the F4 Phantom and I finally finished it. Decided on two color schemes one being Mobius One as seen in Ace Combat 4. A game I enjoyed quite a lot and it is a shame that I can't play Ace Combat Infinity. That aside AC4 was my first introduction in the franchise and I played most of the following games.

The lower one is a color scheme seen on several aircraft, notably the F20 Tiger II and a F8 Crusader, flown by the main protagonist in the series Area 88. A series I quite liked for its story.

Thats it for now :) back to other work

F-203E Sea Dragon by LeElf
First of all I have to say this is an excellent piece with lots of vivid color use befitting the series. The shading is spot on and works well. Do like the reflection of the canopy for one.

Also the perspectives seem to work quite well and the addition of the helicopter in the background gives the scene more action. It would have been more fun to see some crew members walking around but then again that could distract from the actual aircraft.

If there is an "issue" then that would be that the aircraft seems to be armed with missiles while the wing is folded. But that is the only thing I could see.

Great work and looking forward to seeing more.
Raptor mk2 Interceptor with detachable module by HandofManos
Raptor mk2 Interceptor with detachable module
A light fighter I have been working on for Chronicles of Man 3.0. Basically the fighter is merged with an additional engine and weapons module making it more potent and increasing its range. 
An ideal interceptor it is armed with two missile pods (wings) 2x pulse lasers, nose particle gun and a meson canon in the module. (still need to work out the stats)

Made several changes like making the fighter stand out more from the module as well as making the module slightly bigger in the top down view. This was mentioned in the ctitique and comments and those were very helpful. But the most important addition are the colors. So in general I believe this one is as good as finished. Only some minor work needs to be added here and there like some texture and additional insignia.

Hello everyone,

As the title already states I am curious what works best for you who use it. Why? Because I am considering moving more in the direction of going more traditional in linework while I want to color the image later on in photoshop or similar programs. Having watched many amazing artists like; :iconbeltminer: ,:icondan338:, :iconraka-raka: and :iconfeloniusmonk: ,to call a few, I would like to do something similar. Basically doing something new compared to the similar stuff I am currently work on lately (technical stuff) and also because I have less time to work on the PC due to our son a more traditional hand-on approach is more fascinating.

That being said I would like opinions and perhaps links of artists you like, which use similar techniques. :) Or show links here in the comments of your own work with ink. Tips and tricks are always liked as well :) I know it will take some time to get back into traditional work (as can be seen by the simple sketches I posted) since I maninly make quick, not very clean, sketches. 

sincerely,
Theunis
