So the other day I had this idea. I'd re-create certain WWII style aerial combat paintings using Eve spaceships and situations, and see what happened. I looked around a bit and eventually found this stunning modern digital painting from Richard Perry called "Nowhere to Hide". I thought it might just make the perfect first try.
You can see the original on the left and my version on the right. Obviously I'm not trying to paint an exact replica, but use the original as the basis for an Eve version all its own. As inspiration. Why would I waste my time making an exact copy, we have one of those already.
Anyway, mine is also just short of being a full-blown effort. I'd consider it more a study than anything else right now, but I was happy enough with the outcome to share it with you. I'm still learning a lot of things right now and I still don't feel like I have my sea legs fully formed yet. But I'm still working at it and practice makes perfect. Heck, I am my own harshest critic and if I let that stop me I'd never publish anything. Trust me.
I hope you enjoy it. I already have some subject matter in mind for at least a few more of these in the coming weeks and months. So stay tuned.
