lol loved it, then didn't get a feeling out of it but then i spotted that penguin, & this little tiny penguin pushed the love a bit more till the Now I don't only love the plane & the over all atmosphere of the ice with the workers freezing & working there.. I looooooove it all. Nice attention to details
Man this one is just awesome.. I am an Ex-Xoast Guardsman and this one really hits home with me.. I have been following your art since you post alot to the Wings of Glory Aerodrome.. and love your work.. thank you for this one.. I will be adding it into my background art for my computer.. by the way .. I'm Rote Flugel on the boards..
Didn't say impossible, but others pointed out that the plane would more likely have skis in this situation, and wouldn't be landing on ice under four inches thick, which is what is needed for a sub to break the ice. It doesn't matter, it's a cool picture. Plus I was stationed in the far north and it reminds me of it.
Nice picture ! Besides the USCG , the NY ANG regularly supports Arctic and Antarctic research, the 130's have skis though. I used to watch them practice heavy load landings and TO's on Lake Champlain now and then when living in Vt.
He needs to keep an eye on that Penguin, it could be one of those guys from the NY zoo (Penguins of Madagascar) and his henchmen are trying to hijack the Hercules!
My brother served aboard the USS Queenfish when he was in the United States Navy. He made multiple breaches in the artic ice. He told me that there are no areas in the antartic (there is a penguin in this artwork) that you are able to breach and they relied on just the strength of the sail to acomplish the task. They would only do it in an area that is smooth on the underside of the ice.
