The Hunt by JanBoruta The Hunt by JanBoruta
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.

Enjoy,
Tom :D

You got this one right, very right (actually you got all of them right), but this one is special. The shading looks time consuming. Great representation of the Dora. The Gs look great, thte guns pointing toward the 109s. Very action oriented, very well done.

Resembles the Ta-152 a bit more than a Fockewulf 190. =P

Yeah, I must have confused the types when I was drawing it (or just misread the info I had). :)

I'm pretty sure that that aircraft is not an
Focke-Wulf FW 190 and that it is actually a
Focke-Wulf TA 152, which is actually a high altitude version of the FW 190 but with too many changes to just tack a new letter at the end. so it got a new name.

It's prettty impressive... all the shades give an overall dark impression, the same the pilots and gunners should have had.
Only a little bit of a critique. The Focke-Wulf on the front, I think it's too thin... or too long. I remember the Fw-190 to be a sturdy, robust-looking aircraft, even the D9 variant.

Your time was well spent. :=fav: The Fw109's tail looks slightly crooked, but otherwise, this looks like a real battle scene.

B17.... *drool*
By far the nicest airplane of the war. Awsome work here (need I say that anymore?). But is the FW supposed to be so long nosed? From what I can recall, even the version the allies refered to as the "long nosed" was just a tiny bit longer than the first version, which wasn't that long?
Only saying because I don't know myself and becouse you have requested advanced critque, heh.

I was drawing it from and WW2 aircraft album with detailed artworks, there the FW190 D-9 was just that long. I only made the wings too narrow in place where they are connecting with fuselage.

Thanks for your comment :)

There are those who would revise history to hide or change the facts for their benefit.

This is the greatest disservice. The truth should always be told so we will (hopefully) not repeat it!

Beautiful work tavorisch!

hmmm ładny focke wulf:D tylko stateczniki te przy ogonie ...jeden jest węższy... dym taki średni...troche w prawym górnym rogu cięzko się połapać co dalej a co bliżej...np...meserszmicik(skądinąd troche grubiutki :P ) wyglada na zblizonego wielkościa do boeinga...
ale najbardziej to mnie zdziwił ten tekst : "I don't support the Nazi ideology. However, I had to include its emblem here, as I wanted to be historically accurate."...ktoś ci zarzucał ze nazista jestes bo swastyki na ogonie rysujesz?? O_o Przeca tak było...

Stary, mógłbyś tak nie krytykować... Bez urazy, ale ten FW-190 wygląda świetnie (wg moich norm), a poza tym to nie jest samolot z I wojny światowej, żebyś mu wytykał wady, skoro sam się mi przyznałeś, że II wojna światowa to nie twój temat :P

Uwierz mi, że są tabuny ludzi, którzy gotowi są cię zlinczować tylko dlatego, że umieszczasz swastykę na ogonie niemieckiego myśliwca... Potrafią nawet po sądach ciągać.

Statecznik jest węższy, bo samaliot skręca, więc lotki są odpowiednio wykrzywione (lewa do góry, prawa w dół;). Na skrzydłach to samo.

Messerschmitt taki wyszedł sobie grubiutki, a jest wielkości boeinga, bo jest po prostu BLIŻEJ! :P (że też trzeba takie rzeczy tłumaczyć :lol:)
