Boeing B-47 Stratojet

The finished product after two weeks of drawing on and off!

Beginning in 1951, two XB-47Ds were modified from B-47Bs as purely experimental platforms, with a big Wright YT49-W-1 turboprop engine spinning a huge four-paddle prop, replacing each of the inboard two-jet pods. Difficulties with engine development delayed first flight of the XB-47D until 26 August 1955. The aircraft's performance was comparable to that of a conventional B-47, and its reversible propellers shortened the landing roll, but the USAF did not follow up the idea.

-Information-

Of course that this is far from a "nice artwork"
It looks like a mess. No offense.
You do not go wild with the pencil like that if you do not
know anything about contrast and if you do not have any feeling of depth.
cccc
more practice my friend, more practice.

Hi Kevin,
I like your subject matter, I grew up with my dad in the USAF and I have loved Air Force jets ever since. One thing you may try as far as the gridwork goes is this, and this is what I do with my drawings.
Grid out on a seperate piece of paper and do your gridded drawing there, then after you are done with your gridded drawing, I have graphite paper that I purchased from an office store that i tape to the back of my gridded drawing and copy over THAT to a new clean sheet of paper. Then you have no grid lines at all to erase or worry about and it just makes a much much cleaner final version........ Hope this helps

Great drawing! Just need to work on the background and creating depth with the drawing. The other thing is grid lines. I don't use grids so I'm not sure how to fix that. Keep up the good work.

hmm you can get rid of the grid lines. Most drawing pencils have a round metal top. Rub the metal top over the lines and reapply the graphite to it and blend with a cotton pad. I draw over my lines I don't erase them. Excellent drawing you just need to blend more. If you haven't sprayed it you can still fix it.

Tortillions are for fine details
Blending stumps are for shading
Cotton pads or facial pads to make it all look soft and well blended
