The MTseven 13-14 Cross-section is Complete!!!

I finally finished my cross-section!!! Woot! After about 95-105 hours of work I have brought this project to it's completion and can now submit it to Spring Show. It is painted in watercolor with a small amount of gouache. I painted right over the inked line work. Thanks for everone's support and thanks to Richard Chasemore for his comments! Most of all, God deserves praise as He has blessed me with tremendous patience and has allowed me to work so hard on this experiment. This is my third cross-section I have ever attempted and learned a lot in the process. I look forward to whatever the next cross-section project I work on! Hope all of you like it! Take care and to all of you students at AAU: good luck on your finals!

FINALLY!!! The line work is complete on the space jet cross-section!

Finally! After some intense hours of heavily concentrated, eye burning work I have completed the line work on my cross-section of the MTseven 13-14 space jet. This means I'm almost done!! All I have to do now is paint it! The entire inking process was hand drawn and so was most of the project all the way along as I unfortunately have misplaced my elipse guides due to moving in and out of AAU housing between semester breaks. So although some of the perspectives are off, I say it seems to hold itself up pretty well for being the third cross-section I have ever done. I'll keep you posted as soon as I complete the painted version of it.
Here is a more detailed shot:
