Ace Combat X- Apalis Vs Fenrir by zzhangster Ace Combat X- Apalis Vs Fenrir by zzhangster
A pair of Apalis dueling with Fenrirs with the Gleipnir flying fortress in the background. This is my first "action" scene and my first serious attempt at painting a background. I've used various in-game pictures for references.

Constructive criticisms are most welcome, as I'm in the process of learning new techniques.

playing Ace combat X, I didn't like the apalis, think I played 1 mission with it and decided it sucked. The Fenrir on the other had, ooh, giant rocket of doom, come to me

Hey, this is really cool. I like the blurring effect on the Fenrir on the right. The type of painting reminds me a little of Ace Combat 3's style.

You might want check the perspective on the plane (2nd plane counting from the right in the foreground) The thrusters dont line up, and the rest of the plane appeared skewed because of it.
Lighting on the planes dont seem to match up. Some planes were lit with light that comes from the left while some were lit with light from the right. Since it appears you only had one major light source in the painting, might be a good idea to keep the lighting source unified in this case.

Hope that helps.

just a note, if you wish to, you could add some details into the aircraft, more of it.
Like paneling or decals and warning signs.

and is the gleipnir upside down, it took me a bit to finally realize that, thats a very good trick!

LOL, I've checked youtube again and it is upside down! Good call, hopefully I have some time today to fix that. :rofl:

well, glad i could help, if you played the game, you would know why they flew the gleipnir upside down, I personally think that the X-B0 was harder (from ACZ) but anyhow, hope you found that useful.
