Another personal piece i did for my “Flight of the pelicans” project. The pilot crew’s mechanic boy(abandoned as a young kid, grown up among pilots, a talent for fixing things) comes to the rescue as the ship busted up from a long day at work.
Very Porco Rosso inspired, and a bit of Nausica with the aircraft. I love the idyllic italian archipelago setting in Porco Rosso. And subconsciously , it ended up looking a lot like an old game i worked on, Sinemora.
This one was collaborated with the magnificent Hans “Hanzo”Steinbach, providing me with the foreground mechanic boy. Check out his other awesome character illustrations on his deviant art! heavymetalhanzo.deviantart.com
