    oh the picture is taken from the perspective of a refueling aircraft. that's the hose and the connection. it's not out of perspective
    Fair enough

    That would go completely against the whole thought and idea of the gift.

    i guess that'd get a laugh but it kinda removes the whole point of the painting

    if i wanted to paint my dad on a bike i would have just used a photograph of him racing as reference instead of sheene

    regardless, i can't do it today sadly

    i know its probably like that on the ref but the way his leg disappears into the wheel looks strange, you could maybe add like a knee guard to break up the blackness and give some sort of feeling that there is still a leg there

    started painting a plane. i love planes but they are so hard to paint

    Edited:

    oh yeh traced the ref cos i'm just bored and doing nothing at uni today so stressing out trying to get perspective right on a masterfully engineered machine is not what i want to do today sos
    Especially the one you picked. The F-100's were mostly bare-metal (Aside from the ones in SEA). That should be interesting/fun/rage inducing to paint. Good luck though, you definitely seem to have the skills needed to make it work.
    I look forward to seeing a finished one.

    yeh you just reminded me there's a little bit of dark red in the shadows to paint that shows the knee guard

    started another motorsport thing as a present for my brother's birthday





    gonna be much looser than the last one i did (it was so boring to paint)

    i dislike painting these sorts of forms - highly reflective carbon fibre and the like

    silhouette is from gridded reference

    maybe so for some stuff but tbh if it's a present for someone and i have no real interest in the subject matter (beyond enjoying the video games a bit) then i'm not going to spend hours perfecting the proportions of a very complex and mechanically perfected object

    Fair enough

    I do loathe F1

    Though you make it sound like you'd have to take a night class and put together engines and shit like that, what I meant was you could eyeball it without too much trouble

    Anyway can't wait to see some traditional stuff
