thanks so very much dear lucy :) prior to making this, i was mesmerized by a book of optical illusions and patterns, and what started as a fun little experiment of lines, ended up into this :D

the plane's so phallical... but it's really an interesting piece... reminds me of some postcards from the yonder days of old

Thanks very much man :) Hehehe yes, those old school propeller planes were definitely phallical. This aircraft is actually the Vickers Viking and I used a scale model blueprint for reference :nod:

well done. my only criticism is that I think that if the text was on the darker part of the wave, it would be more legible.

great idea, though.

Many thanks my friend! I actually thought along the similar lines of your suggestion in the beginning, but somehow when the text was in the darker area, it broke the light/dark/light flow so I put it back to where it is now :)

Hehehe.. why yes, yes I do need a vacation :XD: Hopefully in a few weeks I'll be able to get a vacation. Too broke for anything fancy, but something simple to relax is good enough for me! :)

And a great many thanks for the wonderful compliments on this as well!

smooth and great bright colors. I think its "funny" to see how the plane is flying "ahead" and the waves of the ocean are going to the right..

Many thanks as always Janni :hug: Hehehe yeah, good catch there ;) I think it's confirmed that the pilot of this plane is a little bit on the adventurous side, especially flying so close to the water and all that :giggle:

Just vector yourself some tickets!
Just don't fly so close to the water! That's dangerous, especially when flying that slow!
Oooh burn!
