SNJ4 Texan

This is a digital painting, based off a photograph I took. Using Adobe PS9 to create another Aircraft, this painting took me a month to do, using the mousepad on my laptop and my finger. Not the most elegant way to get a digital painting done but worth it.
I decided to use an old style Ink look.
And continuing with my, In your Face angles, of Military Aircraft.

Originating from the 1935 open-cockpit, fixed-gear NA-16, the Texan was employed as an advanced trainer, designated as the U.S. Navy’s SNJ. After the war, the planes continued in U.S. military service and flew with at least 55 nations in the role of trainer, fighter, bomber, attack, and transport.
In the next week, I will be getting Mugs and more items up in my Online stores.

Nari Work in Progress ~ 3

Am starting to fill in some of the area's of Nari's fur and added the first layer of color around her head.

Added another layer of color on the ruff of fur around Nari's head. Though I find it hard to do, am going to try to keep this area soft and not as detailed.
Also added another layer of color to her nose to add a little more depth, started in on the first layer of color on her muzzle.

Nari Work in Progress ~ 2

Here I am working on the shading around Nari's eyes.

Starting to add some ink around her nose, eyes and part of her fur. It is a little more dark in the photo that it is in person.

I have added some under-shading color to her Nose and the underside of her eyes. Also started to ink in the first layer of fur. This will take me a couple of weeks.
And remembering to erase the pencil lines as I go, so I don't muddy the colors.

Nari Work in Progress ~ 1

I decided to do a Pen and Ink with a watercolor pencil wash of my family's fixed Maine Coon cat Nari. She is very photogenic, even with my evolt 510 camera not playing nice.
Above you can see my photograph, that I am using as my reference.

You can also see I am penciling in key area's so I could start this new painting. I find it easier for me to keep the balance of what I am working on in perspective.
If I have larger dark area's, I will put an X, in those spots to help me remember where they need to be.

Am using my favorite Hot press watercolor Paper.

I decided to start with the first layer of eye color. And I will do about 10 layers to get the color depth I am looking for.

At this point, I have added a couple more layers of color to the eyes and the first layer of color to the pinkish area of her nose. I plan on finishing up her eye color, nose and mouth before I start Inking in her fur.
