Description P-38's of the Twelfth Air Force units in North Africa. They serviced in this theatre, and later over the heartland of Germany itself, earned the P-38 the nickname 'der gabelschwanzer Teufel' (the 'fork-tailed devil'). Here over Sicily, an unfortunate Luftwaffe pilot has flown his last combat.
Michael Colclough, Adelaide Member Since November 2014 Artist Statement This artwork is relatively new in the art world, a new kind of art. As opposed to conventional painting or photography, digital art allows a person to render any image on to any scenery, thereby creating a whole new class of artists. What it also allows those of us who are historians, is to create photos of military history like they were just taken, instead of some historical grainy black and white photo. While these artistic creations may not be considered 'real' art or genuine photography, it is undeniable that this kind of art is here to stay. It has been referred to as 'Digiart'.
I am one of those Digital Artists. I do military art.
