Default Somethin' a little different!

I thought I would try drawing a caricature illustration. These are fun to make and the funny part is, I've been staring at caricatures for so long now that when I look at regular side views, the planes look way too long and distorted! I'm working on an RV-8 caricature now..

That looks exactly like an RV-12.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Default RV-8

I love the RV-8. I wonder why I'm building an RV-7?? Here's an RV-8 caricature-I call this one the "Low Pass". I suppose now I'll work on the RV-7.

Mark, I think Derek was using double reverse sarcasm and actually complimenting your artistic skills..

Interesting "stork knee" action nose gear on the 12.

Aren't these proportions approaching the old T28?

Cute! Looks like a 3 with an 8 tail and a 9 wing...
