Stargazer2006's photo manipulations!
Permalink  
 


Nice idea to start a fanart section. Here is a series of imaginary models and/or versions I did (they have already been published on the What If forum):

  • Bell-Boeing 901LF Long Osprey (CV-22C)
  • Boeing/Bell PLR (XCV-16A)
  • McDonnell Douglas DC-Z Delta Roton
  • Rotary Rocket/MDD Delta Hudson
  • Bell 930 Pawnee (YAH-74A) [reused somebody else's art for this one]
The two Delta vehicles were done a few years ago, when I did not master the software so well, so bear with me! wink

These are fantastic! I especially loved the Boeing/Bell PLR (XCV-16A) and the Bell 930 Pawnee (YAH-74A). clap.gif

These are very good. What program did you use?

Me and Ashley never really got past Paint.NET, although she's a real pro at it. aww

Same, lol. I don't think I ever did photo manipulations with it though. I'll try it sometime and see how it turns out.

Looking great! I'm loving the Long Osprey and the Bell 930. Did you do these with Photoshop?

I tried it once but I'm too lazy for it. biggrin

Thanks! I actually use an old version of Paint Shop Pro, as Photoshop is too expensive. Yes, I do all the work myself (except for the Bell 930, which, as I said earlier, was done by combining two profiles illustrated by the What If forum's Robert.

If you're interested, allow me to show you in the following attachments some of the pictures I used to create the Long Osprey (I used a couple more for the various personnel and a couple of details, but I failed to save them in the directory).

If the U.S. Army had shown some interest in the Robinson R44, it might have looked something like this... (original line art by bageera2005):

The Moller M-400 Skycar may never really takeoff... but if it did, it *could* result in a military version for the Army, which I have called the M-400M or XUV-29A...

And here's the Lockheed X-55 Rising Star VTOL prototype, which started off as two F-16 fighters stuck belly-to-belly!

More goodies...

1) The SNCAN Nord 6000 Girafe VTOL convoy fighter.
2) The Fairey Crocodile I, a production variant for RAAF.
3) The Boeing 888 Dragonliner, an upscale airliner variant of the X-50 prototype.

Hope you like them... and even if you don't, tell me what you think! wink

Thank you guys and gals! It's encouraging that you're appreciating my work. I put a lot of time and effort in it, but it's such a pleasure to do that I don't really mind... My greatest reward is always to know that I was able to put a smile on somebody's face!!!

The works you see in this gallery are but a small sample of all the aircraft I've created (or rather re-created) over the past two years or so, i.e. only the rotorcraft and VTOL projects. There are two online galleries that present my work in full, and which both contain approximately the same material (over 200 imaginary aircraft in all, and more added every week):

On the What If forum: http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,26120.0

In my deviantART gallery: http://bispro.deviantart.com/gallery/#Aircraft

Thanks to those of you who will take a look!

Not a photomanipulation this time, but an old imaginary rotorcraft done in color pencil back around 1990...

Ask me what's my favorite helicopter design ever, and I'll tell you "S-67 Blackhawk" in a hearbeat...
Since I can't top this design, this is bound to be more ungainly, but it was fun nonetheless. Here's the S-670 White Condor demonstrator, a much enlarged transport derivative. It was produced as a demonstrator for small commuter airlines and troop transport...
