Ahhh I'm so impressed with this commission! Drawing was done by
, and is pretty much the 'cover' idea I have for the first book of my story series I am writing.
Summary of the scene: the Imperial Central Authority (primary villains of my story) are launching an attack near the industrial port of Davenport, following a surprise attack that has grounded most of the Republic fleet that was in the air to defend the city. With the battle close at hand and enemy ground and aerial forces approaching, the Elysium (the country the battle is taking place in, and who are strong allies of the Republic) air force takes to the skies to project the remnants of the grounded airfleet, which use their burning hulks as stationary fortresses against the enemy.
Allied Republic fighters (the F4U Corsairs) assist the Elysium Airforce (the P-38 Lightnings) in maintaining aerial supremacy. The Imperial's primary fighter planes are modeled after the BF-109 fighter, which are escorting the Imperial Fleet (depicted in the distance)
The F4U Corsair in the foreground is flown by Alexia Lancaster, the primary heroine of the story, while the one in the background is flown by Lionel Blackwing, the squadron commander.
