wow, ace combat 4 was an amazing game, and i remember that mission, it was the best mission in the game, and the pic, it`s amazing, i like the way the litlle kid is watching how yellow 13 is killed by mobis 1, i like the colors too.
Call it a delay but I just found your work and as a huge Ace Combat fan I must say, LOVE IT! Yellow 13 is my favorite AC character. You should do one with 13 and 4, if you're looking for something to do of course. Again, great work!
I must say, this is awesome, love to see more of your work and glad that more is coming.
just feel like giving an honest critique, I'm a fan of the games myself. but if you don't wish to read it, I do understand.
The scenery has a really interesting surreal look to it, very fuzzy, but it adds to the mood and air of the piece, a very nice style and touch. Your lighting seems to be spot on and the narrator's details, as you added, were great too. your choice of color is a great, love to dissolving green and the touch of red. The effects on Mobius one are awesome, you seem to know enough of the physics to through in the visualization, really makes him move on the page. Yellow 13's exhaust and contrails were a good touch to make him stand out as well.
now... the bad stuff: the focus, I have a feeling that you were trying to portray the boy more than the fight. That is actually very interesting, as you focus more on the story and then the game play itself. The aircraft themselves, as you've heard, could really use some details. they seem to blend into the background, making it hard to tell what was the boy looking at. Mobius seems to lack all forms of exhaust trails unlike yellow 13, and his could actually use some sharpening as well, more intense as you near the engine. The missile and its contrail, should also be defined, it seems like that Mobius had missed and the missile detonated just below him instead of a fatal blow to the aircraft.
Please, I do say all this in the utmost respect to your work, and mean no offense, just my genuine opinion. Thank you very much again!
Thanks for the honest critique. I actually placed the boy on a higher priority as far as focal point goes on purpose. But it's very interesting to see most of the people actually want to see the painting to focus on the jets. Thanks for taking the time to write this

I see what you mean now, though I still think that he is albert genet. Either way, yes, do keep it up. I think we're just use to seeing a lot of your work on the planes or only the character. Should do one of blaze if you get the chance or an AC5 one.
But hey, if us as viewers want more, we better try and help you too.
