This version of my MiG-37B drawing is what I thought the fighter would look like through a "Night Vision" camera. See the comments for "Wings of the Red Star" to learn how I came up with the idea for drawing the Soviet stealth fighter.

This drawing was made on 80lb. Strathmore medium surface drawing paper. I used 2B and 5H leads in a .05mm mechanical pencil for the pencil work. The pencil drawing was then scanned, cleaned up, and shadowed in Paint Shop Pro 3.11. The print out was on standard fax/copy paper and was colored with a combination of Crayola and Sanford Prisma Color colored pencils. The colored drawing was then scanned back into the computer. I created the background with Terragen 0.8.11. I added lighting and other effects to the image with Paint Shop Pro 7.02.
