This latest (to be colored) page of WARBIRDS OF MARS: The Golden Age
Issue #1 (forthcoming)
When I photo reference, I'm so much happier... it fills in the blanks my imagination wasn't sure of or inspires me as an artist to try more, add more shadow, etc. Here, Jack Paris and Rex are flying the B-54S(pacefortress) "Stars & Garters", which is basically a B-17 with  B-29 (OR B-50) front end (and cockpit) and some other dieselpunk elements. Their flanked by their updated P-51 and F-4 fighters, also augmented with Alien Tech. Then the 'Martians' attack. Fun stuff, and time consuming for me.

micron pens on 11x17 Strathmore, Golden Age dimensions

I'm also on PATREON: WARBIRDS OF MARS pages early
Exclusive sketches, Hentai and behind the scenes ideas, history and pics.
And more (videos? Streaming?), as we grow!

I love the cockpit view! It gives me a strong, "That's no moon, it's a space station..." vibe, which was one of the best scenes of that whole franchise, I think. :nod:

Thanks, Jeff... yeah, that was the request/instruction of the writer, Kane, which in turn points out where Star Wars was inspired in the first place...

curious about number of engines B-54? It looks like a three engine or two props and an air intake only on the starboard wing

It's the angle hiding one engine:

Two prop (or maybe a form of turbo-prop at this stage?) engines and two hybridized engines using reverse-engineered 'Martian' tech that - among other things - includes the anti-grav.

F4U-X! It's got Alien tech hybridized to the craft, allowing for diesel-punky possibilities. ;)
