Thanks for the quality USN skin.

Hammerd, are you familiar with Koike Shigeo? Your work reminds me of his with a slightly more realistic leaning. He's got an amazing knack for depicting the skin of an aircraft, ripples, rivets, etc.

If any of you have built a Hasegawa aircraft model you've probably seen Koike's work on the boxtop. An exceptional artist... and I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that Hammered is in a similar league... just a different medium.

Regards, Goshikisen

p.s. any chance you can make some IJN or IJA skins? Your Zeros are great.

Very nice skins!

I would agree with the Shigeo comment except he has to deal with:

Atmospheric Perspective
Direct and reflected light
Developing aircraft drawing in perspective
Painting markings on curved surfaces in perspective
Landscapes
Clouds
The Human form
Etc.

Painting skins for sims is one thing. Creating a real work of art is something else entirely.

Tdavart,

You are quite right... Mr. Koike has a great deal more to illustrate in his paintings. I suppose what I was getting at is both he and Hammerd both seem to have a knack for portraying the aircraft as they really are... for their own particular purposes.

I've found a link to a Japanese site that has many examples of Mr. Koike's work. Enjoy... either that or go out and buy a Hasegawa kit.

Yes, I totally agree. They are both great at what they do. Sorry if I misunderstood. I have more Hasegawa kits than I care to think about http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Nice to see another fan of Koike. Keith Ferris is another master of aviation art.
