Ilyushin IL-2 Aerosaur
Someone messaged me not too long ago asking if I’ve drawing any IL-2 aerosaurs, and I was reminded that I had a nearly-finished WIP of one sitting around for about a year - it was decent enough to tweak & finish into something presentable.
The design is a little outdated in some ways according to headword canon but I still liked it enough as just a critter.
Also, congratulations! Right now you're really popular in Russian media, you know that? Something to be proud of!
Also seems like this one is based to IL-2M with 37mm cannons.
And you'd be correct!
They DO have optical sensor clusters in the cockpit area though, and those can look a bit eye-like depending on the 'saur. You just don't see them clearly from all angles of view. Also the newer the aerosaur, the more alien/mecha that optical cluster will look.
I know I came across a picture of yours from awhile back with a little shark creature sitting in the cockpit of an aerosaur and it didn't have eyes, was it using this 'eyeless' version?
Oh my god that drawing haha. Yes that was one was eyeless/designed to be piloted. But the original eyeless versions go back to about '08 - you won't find them on here though, I've done a lot of clean-up since then.
I love 'em XD
So with more advanced jet engines, what happens to these proppy guys?
