Tikal by Noble--6 Tikal by Noble--6
A flight of Apache Gunships races through an Afghan desert to provide air support for a NATO convey under attack by Taliban militants.

___________________________________

This piece was 100% inspired by the song "Tikal" by E.S. Posthumus.

I definitely encourage you to find it and give it a listen!

A base line sketch was drawn for the choppers, and the rest was completed in Photoshop CS5. I hope to make a series of pictures to represent each branch of the United States Military. This one is for the Army.

Full view please!

Enjoy!

Great, great detail on those Apaches. Very well done. I like how they 'bank into' the attack, following the group leader. Very cool.

I like the angle and the motion. The fired missiles get a bit lost in the haze. Apaches are probably my favorite helo :D

Great picture! For future reference though, aircraft in combat don't use overt (visible) lights, and attack assets usually work in teams of two. ;)

It's a song by E.S. Posthumus. Some of their stuff has been featured in movie trailers, so that might be it! It also sounds kind of similar to the Black Hawk Down soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.
