Brilliant pic, Zed. Really cool. TheVoices is right, you should make it into a wallpaper.

What plane is it? Sturmovik?

Glad you like it everyone  big grin

Now comes the major bomb -
it's actually supposed to be another Spitfire... hmpf

Red Air Force did have them you know  smile (looking back at some pics I found of them, they had white noses, damn!)

I sketched it first, then traced it in PhotoShop. To make it look more 3D, I didn't use Black outlines, but apart from that, most of it was thanks to the good old Burn and Dodge tools. It's blurry to hide my trademark horrendously jagged edges  tongue

I thought of making it into a wallpaper, but it gets horrible screwed when trying to resize it. Maybe I'll make the background bigger, maybe to include more fighters/bombers?  wink

Cheers TheVoices. I'm undecided whether to expand and make a bigger background, or keep the original image and add vertical borders... ah well...  smile

Good pictures as always, Zed. Although I've never been a big fan of bicloptic Leela. That's one of the things I didn't like about "The Cyber House Rules"

The guy behind Fry? Hmmm..., note it's 15 years since I last saw Blade Runner, so I could be wrong. You still did good.

The one with the lightning?

It looks like Leela is being caught by evil people/aliens and being probed by some sort of probing ray. Or she's tearing the neck brace out of the wall and escaping.

Hmmm, looks like she is held captive somewhere, and the lightning are a sort of escape deterent. They're activated when the chain is pulled. Quite evil, and effective it seems.

Interesting... smile
Actually the "lightning" wasn't going to be there until I decided that the shadows weren't quite good enough at making the pic PG-13 etc, they're a last minute addition.  big grin

The pic's actually um...what'stheword...metaphoric...it symbolises...something...man!

Leela is trying to break free from the shackles of her everyday life. She longs to express her uncontrolled, crazy side, which she keeps locked away from others. The lock and lightning are her will to keep this alter ego at bay, while he obvious lack of clothing is her untamed side. The picture is a metaphorical representation of her internal struggle of wills.

You looking for something like that?

Yeah, something like that  big grin

"Leela is trying to break free from" - that's exactly right.  smile
What's she trying to break free from...I dunno, I really didn't think that far. (Your's sounded a good example  wink)

Make up your own explanations  big grin

A metaphor? You mean like when a story is something, and then it's like something totally diffrent?

The chain represent the mental control Leela have of herself, the one that keeps her from becoming too impulsive and freeroaming. The lightning is the pent up energy inside her. She is struggling to align those two things, let her guard down and embrace life, while still letting her will be in control.


Edit: Actually I like Chumps version as well. Share the pie?

Very Niccccce pics, though.

And I like the second one too. Explanation? Hm... I think Freud  big grin would manage better than me… maybe I tell my a bit later...

Ok, let Freud help me. Let’s start with obvious facts:
1)   She’s imprisoned.
2)   She feels pain (physical is a metaphor for mental)
3)   She lusts to break free so much.
The roots of it lie deep in a human psychology. In a psychology of the author  tongue
4)   She’s captured by a neck brace. Neck brace has a special meaning in the whole picture. Let’s think of it. Neck brace is a thing that can enchain you, but leave your limbs free. Thus you’re binded and free at the same time. Also neck brace separates the head from the other body, makes it obvious that the body and the head are not the one. Also, in middle ages, a collar ordinary was treated as a most humiliating type of binding, because it normally putted on dogs.
5)   She’s standing on tiptoes. This underlines the picture of her lust. (either pain) Make it more sharply.
6)   She’s naked but covered with shadows. This shows masqueraded nevertheless obvious truth.
7)   Chain Lightnings highlight the picture, bring a greater energy to it. They emphasize her desire, her will.
8)   White-to-black gradient. The background is white in the upper-left corner. And dark in bottom-right. White and black colors always symbolize good and evil, godlike and darklike. Her face is turned towards white corner... interesting. And almost all her body lies in a bright half of the picture, while she stands definitely on dark side. I think this also have a particular meaning.
9)   Lightnings are coming from all directions which mean confusing of her willing to break free.
Ok, enough for the first time.

The second one is one of your best Futurama pictures, my friend. It’s emotional and thus I like it. And what is most important it is an art, not just a drawing or a portrait. And as art it's highly tied with your inner feelings and your present desires.
And what I wrote is a vision of this picture and its details; I don’t lay claim to a role of your home psychologist.  smile Forgive me, if I was too rude to it. But what I wrote is exactly what I feel looking onto it smile
