My first stab at creating original illustrations for Wikipedi and the Battle of the Beams article.
I begun by trying to source as many photos from different angles of the Knickebein antenna I could find. Most of the photos were of quite poor quality, but could be used to make qualified guesses about the proportions and figure out how the antenna was put together. The antenna was modeled in Wings 3D and exported as EPS, imported into Inkscape to be touched up, shaded and finally exported to plain SVG.
My first contribution to the English Wikipedia Graphic Lab/Illustration workshop, SVG frogman redrawn from CG original. Not much detail as it's intended to be viewed in a tiny size.
