Mustang Landing: Full Size

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

In a couple other places people have mentioned that they prefer the larger picture to the smaller one, so I'll put both up here.  There's also a detail in this gallery in case you want to see more.I'm still not entirely sure where I got the idea to turn a P-51 Mustang into an anthropomorph, but I think I was getting bored of so many wolf/tiger/fox anthros.  There's not anything wrong with them, but like anything else repetition breeds tediousness.  Of course, with that thought I had to prove that something different could be done, and I've never seen a P-51 Mustang given human characteristics, so that's what I did.  I really happen to like old World War II aircraft,  P-51's are awesome, though I prefer P-38 Lightnings and Supermarine Spitfires myself.Done in Photoshop 6.0. This picture took a long time and much effort (each blade of grass was drawn by hand!), but currently it is one of my favorite pieces of art so it was all worth it.  I tried many of new techniques (some working much better than others) and learned a lot.   I think one of the most important things to remember about art is to never stagnate.  Don't limit yourself to a single medium, no matter how much you like it.  And don't draw only one type of thing.  I can't begin to tell you how many promising artists I've seen have trouble because they will only draw anime/anthros/superheroes/whatever.  Be bold!  Experiment!  Even though it will look bad at first try new things, it will help you tremendously.  I'll be the first to admit that I tend to draw too many monsters at the exclusion of other subjects, but I'm trying to make different things and already I've noticed that I'm getting better.  If there's any advice I can give about art, that would be it.
