Warwolf versus Akula by Panzerfire Warwolf versus Akula by Panzerfire
William Bishop (Callsign Warwolf 1) heads straight towards Andrei Markov (Callsign Akula). Bishop flies a United States Air Force Lockheed Martin F-22A Raptor while Markov is flying the Sukhoi T-50 PAK FA (NATO reporting name at the moment of posting this remain unknown). Markov's fighter is painted with a typical Russian Air Force camo livery and his own trademark Shark teeth (Ence the nickname "Akula", or Shark). His fighter also has Russian/Soviet Air Force roundels 'though it is suspected he's flying as a Mercenary pilot.

The duel of the world's top fighters......... has begun!
*Plays Ace Combat Assault Horizon "Gotta stay fly" theme*

Yeah, I got sucked into the Ace Combat franchise. Like a dumb pidgeon into the intake of jet fighter engine...

When I saw the Full Blown Assault trailer of ACAH, I instantly knew I had to make a fanart of the game :D So I made that "versus" sequence between the F-22 and the T-50. Cuz a dogfight between those fighters would be epic. :iconbadassplz:
And any plane with a psicothic shark mouth painted on it is awesome. Because!

Not much to say about this. Made it using the same technique as usual. I did tweak it a little at the end so that it would have a more cinematic feeling to it. Quite fitting IMO. The T-50 has a few errors for which I apologize. It was the first time I made a work with that fighter and I had to use many photos of the actual thing to learn the shape of the fighter. Pretty tricky. At some point I considered dropping this project because the T-50 was not coming the way I wanted it to look like but luckily I perseverated enough until I had something I deemed acceptable.

The whole thing is made on PhotoShop, The Lens flare effect is from Corel Photopaint however.

I hope you guys like it. :)

I'm still drawing on paper and got one drawing ready to scan but I want to have another two done before I scan them and then color them. So the newxt few projects will be all aircraft related.

I will get to all your comments ASAP.

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

Can always be arranged if you play the PC version. Just mute the music and play the track of Zero instead. :D

I'm not gonna lie, first time I saw that scene, it reminded me of the final scene of the battle between Galm 1 & 2.

Yeah I think these face-face sequences are pretty common in the Ace Combat series. After all... almost every game boils down to a duel between rival aces.
DaFaithful1 Featured By Owner May 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah. BTW, I just downladed Ace Combat Infinity just now and I pretty much sense that there will be a duel between rival ace guarnteed
