Nurflügler. Workflow example

Painting progress “Nurflügler”

I want to show you a small panting progress of an old workflow example I did in 2003.
I was always fascinated by the German Nurflügler projects, and I always loved the beautiful technical views of planes and vehicles. This projects was never finished, I only used it to try some techniques and show my workflow in an art forum. Watching different artists workflow is always a pleasure, now I will show you mine attempt in painting technical drawings.


I would really love to paint color schemes or high detailed poster prints of tanks but till now I did not find the time to get started.

The painting is fully digital.
First I started with a vector based line art done in Illustrator. My Nurflügler should be a really monster, three cockpits, bigger then any other plane and lots of gun turrets

I made this line art as help for the panel lines of the plane:




The next step is to start the basic coloring in Photoshop using different brushes- no foto material is used. The main advantage of painting digital is that you can always change and correct things. Color corrections, painting on different layers, the undo key- there are many things that make the artist life easier:



Started some chipping around the panel lines, added basic lighting:



Added the basic engines, in the initial concept I had only 4 engines, but during the painting I decided to go for a bigger bird:



Here at last a small preview, I only flipped the already painted side.



That’s it- that’s my way to create technical drawings.
The finished drawing needs a lot more of dust, light and shadow, chipping and detail work. Maybe some of you Guys will now try to paint a vehicle digital. I’ve you have any question- here I am.

Cheers Manuel

Manuel,

Your illustration is very nice. I also have just started to learn digital painting in 2d only. It's very fun, and fast. I'm old school illustration, which is a good thing as there aren't that many of us left, which makes me more desireable. Any way, Nice job, hope to see more.

Larry

@larry: the old thing between old and new school illustrations… Digital painting had made my job/live much more easier. But when I compare digital to “real” art I sometime get really frustrated. I have a hard disk full of digital art, but you can’t touch it, feel and smell it. Its somehow feels not valuable.

@rolf: I sorry, currently I do not have a website. Just ask me, if you have any questions.
