There's no sound on it yet, I'm going through the YouTube catalog and I'm enhancing it just a tad via the YouTube editor. Here's a work-in-progress of building the F-14 Tomcat in Cinema 4D. In this video, I am just showing the animation of the wings. Eventually I will create sliders for the radome and canopy like I did with the wings.

And that's how close they fly, I think it's a mere 18" separation. Awesome skills.

I once got to fly with them, and he told me that yes to qualify they have to fly 18" apart.

I'm already setting up the animations. I set up Xpresso sliders so that it's easy to animate. Everything that's movable on this Tomcat (or nearly everything) will be able to be animated (in Cinema 4D only however, as I cannot export animations).

Now that I have the wing pivot area worked out, I also worked out the wing sweep angles. I can rotate the left wing (right wing mirrors it) from full open at 20 degrees, to swept back 68 degrees. I'm guessing the wing sweep to 75 is when the aircraft is on deck? I'll need some F-14 experts to confirm or deny this. (note: the flaps are only a placeholder at the moment, not done yet, and no slats in. Also, there are no spoilers in yet, hence the dark groove on the top of the wing.)

Oh this is ROFLM (butt) O   good.
Watch Mom Goggles. Sometimes we wonder how moms do it. From dirty diapers, to cheering on the next Rembrandt…they seem to just see things differently. Our moms see us differently. Watch as two dads get a glimpse at the way moms view the world…and then realize that it goes way beyond what they see.

I finally found the old classic game, HeroQuest fantasy adventure game. My wife and I played this with friends long ago. It came out when we married in 1990. I think it was lost in a move, and I was so excited to find it again on eBay. It is in the style like Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. I'll definitely be painting the figures again like I did in our old game. My wife and I would even make our own expansions and adventures. My boys absolutely loved it!

Digital & Traditional Fine Artist and VFX Animator.

My name is Dale Jackson. I am a professional graphic and VFX artist. I work in traditional media such as acrylics, color pencils, pencils, technical pens, oil pastels, oils, and digital art.  

I love producing traditional and digital works of art, particularly aviation art, landscapes, and people and animal portraits.

I've always had a love for aviation. I grew up around planes on USAF bases and often spent afternoons with my sketch book drawing them. When I was out of college I entered the USAF and was a crew chief on the KC-135. I'm particularly fond of military aviation, historical and modern. For me, painting aviation art is a burst of nostalgia and a history lesson. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to do some 'nose art' on various USAF aircraft, and more recently to have had a couple of my pieces chosen to hang in both Hill Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field Air Force Base. 
Bragging rights
Awarded the United States Air Force Achievement Medal for artwork painted on KC-135 aircraft. Awarded several awards for art.
