Lee and Twoshoes. These two are another pilot/mechanic duo that lead a rebel force based in the “Forge”. They become the main characters of the story about halfway through once Amelia and Nathan are gone.
The amount of reference I was digging through just for the plane alone was kinda crazy. I had to figure out proportions of people next to it, try (and fail) to find reference of someone pulling the prop (part of starting the engine), perspective, etc. I probably should have just gone downstairs and raided my dad’s books for references, but google worked well enough.
