VB3 Sneak Preview 2
Here's a jet I drew based off of the Blackbird. When doing these, I was inspired by those old Jonny Quest model sheets like THIS ONE, especially since we were encouraged to do so. I don't think I come close to some of the excellent draftsmanship seen in some of those model sheets, especially the Doug Wildey designs, but they are inspiring nonetheless. Maybe if I xeroxed this design a hundred times and then posted it, it'd have that quality that I covet so much. Just kidding. I consider myself a cartoonist, but those old greats like him were real illustrators. By the way, I really took advantage of some great reference on the web during my stint on VB season 3.
