Ye it`s cool ! extreme work, he is one of my favourite artist of aviation painting. He was the one who made me start thinking serious about starting drawing real good works, but lately it hasn`t bin that much =D, i have drawed a Tiger Moth =D the first realy serious project about new style !

I TOTALLY agree with SniperFrans. Two thumbs way up, as well as my big toes. I love how, in both these pix by the incredible artist Robert Taylor, he paints in a view where one can clearly see a pilot in the cock-pit, giving it more of a humanly personal approach. In most photos of airplanes, particularily in battle scenes. Also, his attention to detail is superb! HM
