Doolittle Raid by MercenaryGraphics Doolittle Raid by MercenaryGraphics
This is an updated version of the piece I did for the Doolittle raid.

This piece is dedicated to the 70th Anniversery of the Doolittle Raid.

The Raid was a total secret to all involved and the members of the raid were chosen by volunteering for a "dangerous secret mission". 16 B-25 twin engine bombers were to take off from the deck of the Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet and bomb Japan mainland.

Art  available:

This piece was created in Illustrator CS and is entirely vector.
The shading was rendered using the blend tool between different vector shapes, and a some use of the gradient and transparency tools.

They paid the Japanese back somewhat for Pear Harbor by attacking the mainland in a daring attack.
