P-51 Flying Cadillacs by Jacklionheart P-51 Flying Cadillacs by Jacklionheart
The Mustang was always one of of my favorite warbirds of all time. I think the "Razorback" B model with the Malcolm hood is the most beautifull version of this famous airplane.

Some Mustangs are still flying today, if you ever have seen them in the air, heard the mighty Rollce Royce engines, you will never forget that moment.

Inspired by aviation art painters like Robert Taylor or Roy Grinnell I tried to be most historical correct. These are birds of the 357th Fighter Group, the famous "Yoxford Boys". The leading fighter is the P-51 of Cpt. Johnny England crossing the French cost, somewhere in Summer 1944. Will they come back home this time?

Photoshop - no 3D, no cheats - just painting with some references.

The whole work really has some amazing detail, but the blur in propeller really gives it a sense of speed.  Well Done!

Amazing work, you didn't cut any corners with photoshop? The perspective is working great, and you did the lighting and coloring so well on this, too.

Utterly stunning! The detail, the motion blur, the gorgeous clouds, the texture of the cliffs, the worn metal finish of the planes... amazing and inspiring!

Thank yoo. Well you get  pretty basic metal effect by smooth transistions of white, gray and blue. But it's always good to have photo references!

I would have really loved to buy a pint of this but they look so aweful. way too much black or white space. Its a really great picture of a plane I have more than just one model of.
