Space Shuttle by KarynRH Space Shuttle by KarynRH
Did this in about two hours, which for me at my skill level is really good! I realize it's not perfect but I made it for a small image and too much detail would have looked bad. I'll need to come back and re-do this when my skills have improved but really, I'm fairly proud of it right now!

And I learned a new thing: the blue field of the US flag on military craft must always be on the nose-side. It's supposed to be displayed as if it were an actual flag and you're seeing the reverse side. The same is true of uniforms. I had no idea!

Thanks! Yes, I still have a long way to go. I've been improving but I really need to get better at using the gradient mesh. I used it on the engines but stopped there and just used regular gradients elsewhere. I'm getting there, though! I'm trying to improve by mostly not doing tutorials, and instead just recreating things from photos. I used the photo here as a guide for this image: www.septclues.com/SPACE%20SHUT…

I posted above that I learned today that the flag is supposed to be like that. I thought my reference photo was screwy so I looked it up.
