The Rocketeer by MercenaryGraphics The Rocketeer by MercenaryGraphics
My homage to the "Rocketeer" created by the legendary Dave Stevens, www.davestevens.com/html/main.….

Here Cliff Secord, aka The Rocketeer, is facing off against Nazi bad guys as they speed away in their Heinkel 70 over the Hollywood Hills.

This piece was created in Illustrator CS and is entirely vector.
This was rendered with the pen and knockout tools and some use of the gradient tool.

Why the Musketeers didn't used Muskets?

I've never seen a Musketeer portrayed with a Musket before

I love this movie. Im not sure if it was meant as a look back at Commando Cody in "Radar Men From The Moon" but it certainly brought back memories of those serials. I actually recently found a DVD set of thos original serials and spent a few hours watching them back to back. What nostalgia!

Thank You!

When I first saw Dave Steven's work, I thought "This is how I want to draw".

Cannot hold a candle to him of course.
