The story involves a fuel tanker on fire and a rescue mission at sea. I wanted to add some dramatic smoke and include a little more of the story on the cover.
I'm pleased with how this turned out. I spent quite a lot of time on the sea to try and add the lighting from the fire in a semi realistic way. I also wanted the to get the material right on the dinghy.
I play some WWII flight simulator games in VR and I love spitfires so wanted to make the Spitfire the focus and keep the BF 109 planes in the background. The story is of a airborne duel between rival fighting aces!
I enjoyed this one as it's a topic I like. The colours are an unusual choice but I wanted to create a feeling of a wartime sky not a nice blue sky on a sunny day.
I wanted to create some feeling of the tank emerging from the shadows while the soldiers setup the PIAT to try and stop its advances.
This was also a good experiment in lighting. The story takes place in the early evening as they are losing daylight and I wanted to create the atmosphere of battle fatigued town.
