this pic remind me Ace Combat 6, when Shamrock said "Come dance with angels !!" beautiful :happybounce:

Mobius 1 is an inspiration for a story I'm writing called Ace Combat - Kingdom of the Skies. The other inspirations are Garuda 1 and Warwolf 1. Ace Combat - Kingdom of the Skies coming soon!

Thank you for this. It's wonderful.

Although there is no proof that Yellow 13 actually died. It is highly likely but no conclusive evidence of the fact.
AzureRainfall Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
He was confirmed dead. Due to no visual in eject procedures. (When you shoot him down).
raptor92921 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2013
To be fair you rarely ever see ejecting in the older games at all.

YatogiTetsu Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013

Love that painterly style there; looked like oil on canvas at first glance.

I just cant put in words how epic this is. Your art just made my day a whole lot brightier. :)
viperzerofsx Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2011
even if its not the best you have done in terms of quality. this is my favorite by far because I feel it really represents what I love in ace combat 04

Very nice work: I'm assuming the boy is entirely deaf now though? :)
rebelrecon Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2011
amazing work, simply an powerful outstanding job!
Viobliterator Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is simply amazing. You really get a sense of the chaos going on in the skies above him. It conveys an event that he'll never forget, and apparently writes a letter to Mobius 1 about it. :p

Nonetheless, this is a masterpiece, and you should be proud of it. I think Namco would be proud. :clap:

Was the wings on the F-22 supposed to be blurred like that?
Galm03 Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
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.

This was the first ace combat game I ever played so this pic really hits home with me
Neo-Olderon Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2010
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!
RandomNumbers783465 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2010
That's an awesome take on the scene, good job
Balasar Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010
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!
pvtskwerl Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2010  Student Digital Artist
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 :)
Balasar Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2010
*complains to Namco about making a whiny little war orphan the story's focus*

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.

the plane itself could use some more sharpness, but overall an awesome work.
