HI I'm alive, here's some stuff.

Some spooky sketchy blood-noodle-planes!

That concept of internal-organ-weapons that split and break their way out of their biomechanical shells is still one that I’ve been kicking around in the back of my head for a while (and like a lot,) so here are some creepy Machinengeister based around that. Character ideas.

Not meant to be based precisely on current planes, but there’s a lot of Flanker-series and B-1 in these. :D

If you see something big, with mouth but without eyes, looking like something between a human, a plane and a dolphin, it probably means its author was inspired with Evangelion :)

Not necessarily, I've actually been drawing that style of creature long before I knew what Evangelion was, but I see where people draw the parallels from. 

The color choice was a more deliberate reference on this one however.

Wow, just wow, these are among the coolest ideas I've ever seen! They actually gave me some new inperation for my own biomechanical drones whom really needed a good and coherent design because I honestly couldn't think of some good ones. Thank you! And continue making these epic machines!

Thanks!

Good places to look are to always study reality - why aircraft are shaped the way they are - and then put your own flair on it. Lots of ways to take the concept! Aircraft blend with creatures well since there are similarities shape-wise between them and creatures like sharks, birds, etc.

Very cool! I like how the outer body is very clean and smooth while the inner workings have messy sinew and muscles, it's a very striking contrast.

Imagine:

 

Piloting a jet. just doing a basic recon of the area. On a sort of cloudy day. Then out of nowhere, a stark white jet flies up next to you. It has a strange, and unknown military symbols on it. You try to tell the pilot, "there in a restricted area. And, they need to land the plane". Then after a moment or two. you realize no ones in the plane. Then when you look under it and say, "Is that thing breathing?". As you see steam leak out the nose of the air craft in a basic rhythm.

 

You tell the plane just one more time, "To land it in the air strip immediately.". But the only rebuttal you get is a strange rumbling nose on the radio. Then Just like that the plane flies down slowly to the direction of the air field. And it pass into a cloud as it does.

 

Then after you think the cost is clear. A shadow is casted over your jet, and you hear an ear piercing screech on the radio. Then you look to see this beast above charging straight towards you like an Eagle, like a Demon from the most twisted nightmare.

I knew the moment I put those colors down that I was going to get this comment, hahaha!

Not an intentional reference, but also not a comparison that I was entirely unaware of either!

The colours, but also the atmosphere of absolute inevitable terror and destruction is something they share, each in their own way.

Whats it based on?
Reply

Hydrothrax Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
None in particular - though I had the Flanker series and the B-1 (and by extension, TU-160) in mind for some of the shapes!

Nice! Ever thought about a B-2 Spirit plane base?
Reply
:iconhydrothrax:
Hydrothrax Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, I have some very early aerosaurs I did that were based on the B-2. They might no longer be up anymore since they are absolutely ancient - we're talking about stuff that might be around 9 years old! I might revisit that one again. Always depends on when the inspiration strikes with these!

I did one on the X-47B last year - not the same, but related I suppose?

I like it! It gives a resemblance but not the exact same but good none the less. ;)
