Some quicker picture between the works for my company.
I like planes from my childhood but this is a first time that I've paint some.
Its not an classical aviation art, but I hope you will like it. Its a F-4c Phantom from Air Defence Command squadron, based on Iceland. So I want to catch the hard weather conditions in which the planes have operated.
Those Phantoms were assigned with the defending of the norhern atlantic.
Done in Photoshop CS3 Beta + intuos3 , with the help of some custom brushes. Refs used, some photos of plane and 3d model for perspective.

I think part of the book "Red Storm Rising" took place in Iceland. I think it was Soviet airborne troops invaded the country.

I really admire the detail you paid attention to how the ice forms at the areas where they freeze and the impact of the ice crystals flying in the blizzard. 

Currently I am working on a drawing on ships in a stormy sea and I am putting in some windblown rain effects from what I observe in nature. In fact the stormy weather was inspired by what you have done here. The difference is while your piece is of a close-up subject, mine is taken from some distance away so certain details have to be foregone. 

However its still not as realistic as what you have so I am going slow on it to experiment with getting it right.

This is awesome looking!! I was at Kaflavik AB in 1998. Didn't get to see this weather, fortunately. But man I worked in this stuff at Fairchild AFB. I crewed KC-135's there.
