Bf-109 Drawing

Recommended Posts

Messerschmitt Bf-109 G-1 or 2 shooting down what I'm 80% sure is a Vickers Wellington, no idea what model, in 1942.

Drawn with mechanical pencil (HB) on notebook paper.

Finished this earlier this month after about two weeks of on-and-off drawing.

I have no idea what Model Wellington Bomber it is either, but it is very GOOD. Like to see this in color without the lines, though. Excellent drawing of a German Fighter. Good eye! Keep up with your talent.? :D

 

 

UPDATE: ?Stuff like this drives me crazy. I found out that the aircraft is a British Wellington-Vickers Mark I.?

They were developed in 1936 as a Medium Range Anti-Submarine Bomber.

This is a fantastic drawing - you have a natural talent with art, and this shouldn't be taken lightly in my opinion. Really great work!

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it! I draw mostly when I don't have anything else to do. It's not my favorite thing, but I do enjoy recreating photos.

I drew on notebook paper because it was immediately available for me, I recently just got a sketchbook. I've never been bothered by the lines of notebook paper, I just tend to visually drown them out whenever I draw. If anything I sometimes use the lines as borders of an image like above, where a background is included. But I also don't like to work with color, that's always been something I've never bothered with regularly because there's so many more chances for error. With black and white, I can find the differences in shading. Although I do tend to shade lightly, so my overall drawings would usually be lighter than my reference.

And thanks for the update! I had a really hard time figuring it out since half the plane was engulfed in flames. For a while, I couldn't even tell if it was British or American since the original reference image on my phone was so blurry.

 

Also, here's a B-17 I started drawing back in early 2013:

Before I knew anything about old warbirds, I had no idea what this was. I'm pretty sure I searched "World War II planes black and white" for this back then.

 

This one used actual drawing pencils and whatever size drawing paper, almost double the size of print. I never got around to working on it recently, primarily because I don't like dealing with landscapes, along with double-scale, but I finished drawing the B-17 itself back then and thought "Yep. Good enough."?

I'm pretty picky about how I draw, and I haven't really touched it since.?

Even more impressive Strife. Excellent work on the B-17. I too like Warbirds. You really should put them to color (they really are very nice). At some point in the distant future, I will focus some Articles on WW2 Warplanes. I do already have some WW1 Aces Articles posted you might like (with a few Sopwiths and Fokkers).
