Into Safety II by itifonhom Into Safety II by itifonhom
   The Heinkel He 111 was a German aircraft designed by Siegfried and Walter Günter in the early 1930s in violation of the Treaty of Versailles. Often described as a "wolf in sheep's clothing", it masqueraded as a transport aircraft, though its actual purpose was to provide the Luftwaffe with a fast medium bomber.
Perhaps the best-recognised German bomber due to the distinctive, extensively glazed, bullet-shaped "greenhouse" nose of later versions, the Heinkel was the most numerous and the primary Luftwaffe bomber during the early stages of World War II. It fared well until the Battle of Britain, when its weak defensive armament, relatively low speed, and poor manoeuvrability were exposed. Nevertheless, it proved capable of sustaining heavy damage and remaining airborne. As the war progressed, the He 111 was used in a variety of roles on every front in the European Theatre. It was used as a strategic bomber during the Battle of Britain, a torpedo bomber during the Battle of the Atlantic, and a medium bomber and a transport aircraft on the Western, Eastern, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African Fronts. (Source: Wikipedia)

       Nothing really fancy here, no real story behind this image, just used an old repaint I had for the great He-111 model of Touchwood to create a new wallpaper for my desktop, you can use it as a wallpaper too if you like. An all 3D scene, played a bit with materials and lighting here, minimal post production in Photoshop, main render in C4D.

Wow, that is really a slick piece of work.  The shading of the background from left to right with aircraft over the darker side while the refection of the fading sun highlights the detail of the aircraft is fantastically balanced.  The detail on the aircraft is also very well done.  I have been an avid modeler for years and would love for one of my aircraft to turn out this good in a photo. 

Great narrative also.

   Thank you! The main idea here was to create something of inverse contrast, if I can name it that way. Shadows coming into light and vise versa, it's more of an illustration really than art and was created just because I wanted a new wallpaper. Gives me a lot of place on the left to place any icons!
    Again, thank you so much for your kind and extensive comment, much appreciated!

Desk top!!  That is perfect.  Now that you say it yes I can see the way the space is set up obvious once you said it.  Mind if I use it for a while?
