    Default Electric Lightning

    Drew this plane about 15 years ago. Kind of got carried away drawing shapes. I'm a little more efficient now.

    A favourite of mine from my childhood - two jet engines strapped together with some short wings attached - what's not to like? Fuel consumption was not one of it's selling points..

    Beautifully represented here. Great job.

    Wow! How many shapes are there? (Select all--unless of course the shapes are grouped)

    Paul, the lightning was a real hot rod. Mach 2.27 at 40000 feet. Climb rate of 50000 ft/min. The thing was a rocket ship when it came into service in the 1960's.
    Gary, I think there are over 570 shapes. I don't do that anymore.

    Wow, verry nice.
    My ever most complex fotorealistic Vector Drawing was the Breitling Navitimer Watch with 1483 objects. Me either never will do it again.

    l like it Gray, wonderful rendering but in my opinion it is not quite like the ones you do now.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Nice graphics by everyone. Are we sharing 'complex but realistic' stuff? I did some UI work a while back for software synths...luckily the xara rendering is fast enough so I could be extravagant. I wouldn't ever attempt this with most other software, the render times alone just for zooming would be unbearable.
