I would pay real money to see this become a remake of Dumbo.

Cool! There should be a plume of smoke coming from the engine/rotor.

Probably that's the question...

I think because, like me, he feel better when a hundred of feets are between the ground and himself :P

Something about the way the original sketch lines work with the piece adds to the feeling of movement. As if even the cleanest lines on the airplane can't be distinguished clearly due to the speed. It certainly evokes a strong sense of freedom. Fine work for starting out as a simple sketch.
