Re: breaking barriers


On October 14th, 1947 the sound barrier was officially broken by a Peregrine Falcon flying at an altitude of very high. Though Peregrine Falcons were known to reach speeds in excess of 322 km/hour while diving, the feat of exploding the sound barrier through level flight was super unexpected and the only dude who was watching dropped his hot dog and was pretty sad about that for a while.

So uhh, this turned out looking kind of abstract, but a falcon breaking the sound barrier was the concept I had in mind when I made it, anyway :P

It may be kind of abstract but it's still totally awesome! I really like the broken bits of sky.

Re: breaking barriers


yes, abstract, but your concept comes through wonderfully discernible...

This design is absolutely beautiful and I hope it makes it into the fog of war very soon because this is probably my favorite design in this derby.

not sure if this was serious, but I couldn't find this "fact" anywhere. On the same exact day you wrote, the first level flight breaking the sound barrier was done by a Chuck Yeager in an aircraft though

I like this design a lot; the tessellation effect, the "sound" notes, it's very eye-catching.
