Messerschmitt Me 262

Here is is a computer generated image of an Me 262 jet fighter that I created on a Macintosh using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. As a Graphic Designer with extensive experience in photo retouching, I was able to call upon the skills I've accumulated over the years to create an image totally from scratch.

First I drew an outline in Illustrator, then I placed the line drawing into a new Photoshop file and began airbrushing. Fifteen to twenty hours later I had the resulting image.



This is my first stab at this sort of thing, but I am now hooked on this technique. I am already planning my next image. Maybe a B-17 or a P-47.
