Once more I got the itch to try my hands at another digitally created Aviation Art piece, this time a World War 2 invasion consisting of bombers on their way to a target far off into the night. I wanted to try it from a persons perspective on the ground looking upwards and seeing the underbellies of the planes while using the moonlight and clouds as a backdrop producing a wave of silhouetted aircraft's.
One of the problems I had as I was trying to keep it as closely to photo realism as possible was the sharpness of the model planes so a slight blur added through Photoshop fixed that, the other was the original idea of color I just wasn't pleased with that at all like I was with my "Dog Fight" piece and its chromatic finish so I decided to try it with Black and White and finally adding sepia to the finish for a more nostalgic and historic feel. I made many tweaks in the process playing with contrasts and highlights before coming to what you see now.
This was created with Vue6 Infinite and Photoshop CS.
This art piece like most can be found at both my Zazzle store and my Fine Art America's store.
