Congratulations on being selected for the Staff Pick greatly deserved.
Watched the large image and stayed gaping at it and marveling at all the greatly done details.
As to the clouds not being that neat I have to disagree I flew once on an Islander (a 7 passengers small plane) and we flew through those type of clouds and they looked just like the ones you painted. I suppose their being blurry or not would depend on the altitude at which you look. It was a wonderful experience.
Congratulations Olie (ahh and welcome to the forum )

Wow great details, fantastic job.
looks like a screenshot from a video game
my only complaints are; the propeller doesnt look like its rotating, it looks more like a gaussian blur has been applied to it, maybe some subtle swoosh lines would help give the sense of spinning
and there are no exhaust marks on the side of the plane
other than those two minor things, its great work, you did a great job with the other details
the larger image really shows the ammount of work put into it
i wish i had the patience to do something like that
Thats great Olie!!!
