Serious Business by Lueb-Art Serious Business by Lueb-Art
Since about the time the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber was publicly acknowledged, the thick hilly terrain of Mid-Missouri has been the arena for frequently viewing the mysterious, flat, ominous spectres. They usually are seen alone or in pairs, but the A-10 is assigned to protect the Whiteman AFB fleet, and the smaller impressive birds are frequently seen as well. In this scene A-10s are escorting a couple B-2s, and though much smaller, due to perspective foreshortening, look about the same size.

This is the first Vue 9 Complete render I am somewhat satisfied with, after a long 117 hours of rendering due to all the ecopainted tree instances, and though I missed having most of the multipasses that I will someday have with Vue Infinite, I found more creative ways of using the depth pass. I had to rely more on PSP and Painter after rendering.

Their radar signature almost cancels each other out...

Good point. I've never seen the B-2's being escorted by the A-10's, it's just that they share the same base and have different missions, one offensive, the other a more defensive role. I just wanted to show them together.

That was meant as a joke; the picture is just kind of ironic. It's a helluva picture, though.

Yep. It's very true though: having A-10's with all their angles and protrusions would sure mess up the radar signatures. Good thing they can fly low and slow though.

fear what you can see, but fear what you can't the most

Good advice. Humans have a limited bandwidth regarding light, so there's a lot more we can't see than can.

actually, I was referring to the fact that while RADAR can see the A-10s, it can't see the B-2s that are flying with'em.

You're right! I wasn't looking at the image when I replied and forgot kind of what the subject was. Yeah, about the signature of a bird I think.
