Illustration Friday: Intricate

This week Illustration Friday gave us the word "intricate". Following on from my image last week I felt encouraged to draw another vocational scene and it struck me that flying a plane (with all those complicated controls) must be quite an intricate process. As it turned out, the logistics of drawing a cockpit full of buttons proved to be slightly more challenging than I had expected... so in the end I scaled-back the details to make the image more managable. Additionally, in certain places the perspective got a wee bit out of hand and I had to be careful about how I coloured things in. Ultimately though I'm rather pleased with this, especially since I threw it together over 3 short evenings.

I'm with everyone else. Three short evenings! Well, the time and effort shows, Jim. Great cockpit, great details! Say, judging by that stormy looking sky ahead, shouldn't they be looking forward? Hmmmmm?

Nice job! It sounds like just the process of drawing this picture was rather intricate. This is a great solution to this week's topic.

You must have spent some great amount of time for this but the the end result is so pleasing.
Sorry to be late, the few weeks are exam weeks for my students:(
