September 1944. A group of German fighters tracked down American Flying Fortresses on their day bombing run over Germany, escorted by some P-51 Mustang interceptors. In the foreground you can see a Focke-Wulf FW 190 D-9, nicknamed "Dora Nine", one of the best German fighters of World War 2.
Right. Time for some normal comments. This took me about 8, maybe 9 hours. 2 for sketching, 2 for shading the bombers, 3 for the FW190 and 1 for the background. Mechanical pencil (HB) used in the initial sketch and 4B pencil for 'colouring' and shading.
