The Rocketeer by spidermanfan2099 The Rocketeer by spidermanfan2099
The Rocketeer

This was a colour commission from Robert Atkins :iconratkins: on his sketch, in light of the upcoming anniversary and rumoured remake (about time... more flying combat this time please!) this was a fantastic piece to get to do :D

Colours by me!

Its from a con sketch that Rob pulled out a while back, he's a big fan of the character too and you can see that from the sketch. He just asked me to try and keep it in tone with what the Rocketeer was about and the time period, so I did my best... and had fun along the way. I completely forgot we'd done this as its almost an oldie now haha!

Hope you guys like it :D

Rad ;)

The Rocketeer is beginning to become one of my new favorite Disney characters, just because of his awesome retrofuturistic design. I very much like this piece, nicely done!

He is very cool, though not actually a Disney character, they just produced the movie (he was around a bit before that movie came along), and is still going in the comics as, IDW have been releasing stuff for years now.

He's definitely a classic though!

Rocketeer is my all-time favorite character. You can be darn sure that if I loved him before, I love him even more now just because of this awesome picture. XD

Interesting. Is it possible you can send some textures to my email.

I'd rather not tbh, I made most of mine up from others I found. You can find alot on Google if you look... but if I hand out mine, then you'll end up making work that relies too much on my textures. Sorry mate. Just do the google routine and make some of your own ones up, it'll be better for you.

Very welcome. I thought it was cool because I saw a show about finding & auctioning off hollywood memorabilia on syfy and the rocketeer helmet that was used by the actor was one of them :D
