These are part of a series of plane concepts I had done, just for the sake of seeing whether or not i could do them, and like any fun project they began to develop into a bit more. The first idea was just for fun I wanted to see what a plane in that configuration would look like. I wanted to do a futuristic stunt plane. The idea came from watching a documentary on space planes that were able to control a free fall by adjustable wings (amazing in a totally nerdy sense). So that was the birth of the idea, that arial acrobatic pilots in the near future could perform the impossibly looking stunts with complete control.
Artistically I thought the first one turned out pretty well, I really made sure to hammer out the perspectives and to get a bit of texture.
For the second one, I wanted to push the lighting a bit more. There is more to be pushed, so I will come back to it again when my eyes have rested, but I do like the way it's turning out, and I'm real happy with the abstract viper decal logo. It's always fun to do some Graphic Design to make a piece more believable.

Recently finished this up. There are a few more things i want to toy around with, like a colored backlight just to see what happens, but so far i like where this has gone. Started with a sketch, then into illustrator, and finally photoshop. Good fun.
