Sea Lightning Sketches by Hydrothrax Sea Lightning Sketches by Hydrothrax
Character development sketches for one of my primary Maschinengeist characters, who plays an important role in my Post-Earth headworld. You'll see more of this guy sometime later :D

His is mainly based on the proposed English Electric "Sea Lightning" project, which never came to fruition. The variable-sweep wing is just so bad-ass on a plane that already has a really cool planform shape. Although I didn't include the larger 2-person cockpit since I wanted the cyclops face, and I don't like how the proposed side intakes look. 

(Check out this modeller’s take on the concept, this was one of my main inspirations since it just rocks: www.gengriz.co.uk/sealightning… )

too bad there aren't many places where you can make vehicle monsters all the time and professionally! I bet you'd have a blast!

Love this!  Especially the clawed wings.  Do you plan on doing a painted version of the side views?

I CRAVE THIS KINNA SHIT. 

I absolutely love concepts and sketchwork. I find it fascinating to see the subject in question go through different phases of design, as well as get rendered in poses that might not get draw often or show certain neat details. 

*ties tourniquet and smacks extended arm* HIT ME SOME MORE.

This is really cool, I really like how you make the inorganic parts feel organic without losing their shape.
