Show Your Plane Sketches/drawings

Thu Jun 24, 2010 3:22 pm

Hi all,

I started drawing again and thought it would be interesting to see if anyone else enjoys it as much as I do.
Since I was interested in aviation I've been trying to draw planes. There's some type of satisfaction when completing a drawing of your favourite aircraft in your favourite livery.

I'll start: American Airlines B772ER

My first attempt at drawing in a long time. I mostly used images of for inspiration. Unfortunately a lot of the detail and quality was lost when I scanned it. I thought of adding shading and shadows, but decided against it since it would destroy my effort at having detail on the aircraft. The paper I used also wasn't very big so the quality could be better.
I guess I'll use a bigger paper on my next project. A Martinair MD11F.

So feel free to post your pics here!

Hard work always pays.

Nice! Here's a few I've done (sorta) recently: (They're a little dark because I was playing around with the contrast on Photobucket so you could see the colors better)
Delta 757-200
Lufthansa Italia Airbus A319
AeBal Boeing 717-200
CSA/Skyteam ATR-42

I recently finished a Northeast Airlines 727-100, but have yet to upload it.

Oooo! That's very nice! I like it!

Here's mine for a start (I have many more!):

I haven't drawn in a while.. I really need to go back to doing it. Oh, btw, these are all photos from the database.
