I did this image firsthand for my mom's surprise birthday card. I always give her unique presents each year, and so it happens I did CG art this time around featuring this little Pilot right here. I always had this character design on my head for quite a time now and this just came flying in for the occasion and spent about 2 weeks or so on this one. Learned a lot and it did really brought me to a few new horizons on CG, so hey that's awesome!
