A few more of my comic book cover parodies

At the beginning of the year I posted some of my comic book cover parodies which are all created on the computer, the basic drawings are done in ink and then scanned into the computer to add the color, logos and type. For the last couple of years I've been working on this series having completed 145 of them so far. They are 13 x 19" signed limited edition prints that I have exhibited in art centers and the Craig Smith Gallery in Harbert, Michigan. Here are three covers featuring combat aircraft.

BattleAces
This cover depicts a scene during the Spanish Civil War with German aircraft under attack by Polikarpov I-16's. The prominent aircraft in the scene is a German Messerschmitt ME 109 of the Condor Legion.

FightingAces
A World War I scene with British aircraft successfully attacking a German observation balloon with a German Fokker D.VII flying in the foreground.

AirCombat
Another WW I scene depicting the British Sopwith Camels knocking out a German dirigible.

These covers are a lot of fun to do, the computer is the perfect medium for creating these kinds of images. It's also a great way to practice and learn how to utilize the digital medium.
