Prototype by Hydrothrax Prototype by Hydrothrax
An X-47B aerosaur sits on one of four aircraft elevators of the partially AI-controlled carrier "Dwight D. Eisenhower," ready for action (or in this case specifically, further flight testing.)

Although the results of this particular deployment will prove to be a little...unsettling.


(Yes I'll probably end up drawing some of the follow-up stuff from this :D )

Colors are based on the VX-23 strike aircraft evaluation squadron. This painting is in part study, in part headworld story stuff - trying to get in the habit of drawing more of my characters/creatures in a scene to better tell their story, I draw too many things in a vacuum...!

I really like the symmetry going on with this. It really brings out the underlying nature and feel of a prototype being developed. The cloudy skies make me feel this is a scene taking place on a Naval Vessel/Carrier of some sort.

This was based off an aircraft carrier, it's very much supposed to be a view from the hangar bay! The markings refer to a real flight test squadron.

Isn't this why VR simulators were invented? This is also a very "hands-on" carrier isn't it?
