E X Q U I S I T E !!! The result is fantastic...I'm curious how many layers you used on this profile  ;D
Well done,Logan!

Thanks, Alex!  On this image itself, there are about 200 layers, but the lighting, shading, weathering, and line art were all compressed to single layers.  I still have the originals for those and if I add them in, it's closer to about 1000 layers that went into this.  The file size is about 160 mb.  It crept over 200 mb a few times and I kept having to merge, compress, and trim my way back down to reasonable levels each time.


Outstanding!  Any chance of a larger version - would make a great poster!

Sure.  Just click on the image below and it will take you to the 100% one that I uploaded on DeviantArt.  I'll also link to the page itself where it's displayed.  Let me know if you actually want to do a print of it.  I can give it to you on a white background instead, etc.




*stretches* I'm glad we got that one done. I don't think I've ever put that much detail into a single piece of line art before. Logan, you're a harsh taskmaster and it made me better at what I do.

This came out well.

Indeed.  As small and "conventional" as the actual aircraft is, I really do like the way it turned out.  Well worth the long hours we both put into it.


Logan and Talos, you two make a most awesome pair!!!

Kudos on you two gentlemen

Thanks, Rafael.  It really is a great partnership.  He likes doing the things I hate and vice versa.  We definitely push each other to produce better and better work, too.


Beautiful job Gentlemen!  :-*

Thanks, Doom!  I'm glad you like it.  Did you look at the 100% one, too?

Cheers,

Logan

You better believe I looked at the 100% image. I'm still blown away by how nice this is, would make a beautiful print.

Thanks, guys.  It really does look more accurate at that level.  The scaling does cause some issues in appearance.

Wonderful job! Logan! Outstanding  :) Could you send me one with a white background? Much appreciated  :D


Sure.  Do you want one like this, or just like the normal one but on white instead of blue gradient?

Cheers,

Logan

Hi Logan,

It's okay this way. It doesn't need modifying

Click on the image to see it at 100%.



After its rejection by the RLM, the He 100 became the focus of an intense propaganda campaign designed to deceive the Allies into believing the He 100 was in service with the Luftwaffe.  Largely successful, this effort culminated in the famous April 1940 article of Der Adler.  No fewer than nine He 100s were painted in spurious "lightning bolt" markings and lined up for the cameras.  It wasn't long before these same aircraft were repainted with a shield bearing a bicorn hat stuck on a dagger, an apparent stab at Winston Churchill, the former First Lord of the Admiralty.  Finally, at least one aircraft was painted with a moon-man marking and photographed in an apparent night-fighting role.

When its services as a propaganda tool were concluded, a number of these He 100s were added to Heinkel's semi-private factory defense force, manned by Heinkel company pilots.  Sometime after these aircraft were taken on for use in this role, the 'First Lord of the Admiralty' badges were repainted with a griffin, the traditional coat of arms of Rostock, where the Heinkel plant was located.  This can be seen in an aerial shot of the plant taken later in 1940 as published in Erwin Hood's fantastic book on the He 100.  It is one of these aircraft that is depicted in the profile.





And here's the full build thread.

Cheers,

Logan
