Welcome to the flying circus! Let the Nieuport 17 swipe you off your feet and take you beyond the clouds!
This is my take on the first assignment for the course Game Art at Digital Arts & Entertainment. We had to stylize a ww1 plane and make it fit into a flying circus. Even though this was a school assignment, at heart I really made this for my dad.
The plane is inspired by the movie “Flyboys” in which a group of young Americans volunteer to become a pilot for the Lafayette Escadrille.
