This is not the most original design and I feel it`s kind of overused for sci fi gunships and such, but I still like it.
I combined elements from the Apache and the Osprey for this piece.

Looks and feels like it could exist in the future. Nicely done!
I like the tail of the aircraft

I have to admit that I like it too. You really can't "overuse" an image like this -- the reason everyone makes a sci fi gunship like this is because it makes sense, from a tactical point of view and from a technological point of view as well.

Very, Very nice. Should you ever decide to covert these to scale miniatures (through Shapeways for example) sign me up for a dozen.

"Overused" would not be the word I‘d use here, it‘s more like "tried and tested". After all, why try something new when the old designs work so well? Especially when they are executed as well as you did it here :)

I don't care how much it's used. It's always cool to see new gunship designs.

Loving the addition of ground crew in this picture!:#1: Really gives a sense of scale that you don't get on a lot of vehicle concepts :D

Love this. I think the wheel structures make this look more like grounded in the real world rather than a sci-fi one.

It's a good design, but i feel that the wings are too stubby for it to fly when the engines are horizontal. Osprey has wider wings, which actually generate enough lift for it to fly horizontally.

yeah, but if you're going for the whole "is it going to fly?" argument on a piece of wonderful art, remember that the TSR2, Eurofighter typhoon, and the harrier (especially the harrier as they are dead weight) all have wings that are pretty much useless and the aircraft relies on huge amounts of thrust. :P

Well, i didn't know that some aircraft in real life can do that. I thought that the wings are pretty much neccesary.

Oh no! They're well worth a google! :D You can get some really funky shapes to fly xD
