I really like the Pan Am ones, as well as the Southwest 727! I wish I could draw... It's probably one of the things I'm worst at. That and singing!  Big grin

Anyways, amazing drawings - Keep up the good work Concord977!  Big thumbs up

Cheers - Skytrain.

Hi there,
While mine certainly doesn't compare with the magnificent ones above, I would like to post one of my own drawings. It is an Egyptair A340-212, though the livery isn't visible from this angle. Sorry about the "smoke;" I added contrails only after I realized that I had drawn the gear retracting!  Laugh out loud Unfortunately, due to the scanner I used and the resizing I had to do, the picture's quality is severely deteriorated.

Enjoy!

N243NW (Ryan),

I think your drawing looks great. As you can probably tell, I have used a computer for my drawings, which adds talent where mine is lacking.

Yours is hand-drawn, and shows an ability I'll probably never have. The angle that you've captured would be very hard for me to do.

I don't sketch well - although I keep trying.

Nice work!

- Curt

Nice work both of you. Drawing airplanes (by hand with pencil and colored pencil) has been one of my favorite hobbies in the past. But my desire for extreme perfection and detail (I'm talking detail down to every last seem of the fuselage skin) makes my drawings very time consuming, and I havn't been able to do any since last summer. My personal taste is left side profiles such as yours, Concord1977. I will try to scan a few of my better pieces soon.

P14nekr4zy,

I know what you mean about the details. My drawings are usually printed on 13" x 19" canvas-stock paper. So the individual seams are important. I would love to be able to show actual RIVETS, but I've never made it that far. One thing I can say, if you look very closely, you'll see 50 stars on the US flag! Of course, this was only possible due to the computer.

I'm looking forward to seeing your drawings.

Take care,
Curt

Thank you everybody for your kind comments. I have a BA 777 on approach to LHR currently in the works. I'll make sure to let you guys know when I'm done (It'll probably be a month or two, though).

Gee, THANKS for all the great comments.

Tommy, I used to use Illustrator, but I now use CorelDraw! 11.0 - I've found it to be a little easier to import/export into other formats. It is also better for large printing. I have printed a few of these images as large as 3' x 6' - so the rendering needs to be really smooth at that size.

- Curt

P.S. Here is another drawing I did recently for a friend who works at USAirways.
