Well, here you go. One of the few projects I've followed through to completion of an obsessive level. I was asked to do this project for work and gladly took to it. A month later, this is what I came up with. My boss was elated and sent it off to be approved so that she could print it on a banner for our cell. Boeing didn't like having their name on the side of the plane, so I took it off and have passed the savings on to you! I figure, if it doesn't have their name, that means they won't claim it as their own, that means I can show it off if I like!
So anyway, this drawing started out as a pen sketch on a piece of paper done in 5 minutes and turned into a monstrosity with about 30 layers. There's still a few things I would tweak if I were still working on it, but I'm not. And I'm happy with it just the way it is.
He's a happy Boeing 787 and he was finished in PS CS4 with a Wacom Graphire 3 tablet. And yes, they did compensate me for my time.
