Roger! Our small LSO‬ (Landing Signal Officer) is getting ready for iOS coding.

From invisible man to Shiva, our small LSO (Landing Signal Officer) is getting prepared for the iOS coding.

Cleaning of background behind the LSO (Landing Signal Officer)

We first cleaned the background behind the character in Photoshop, removing it entirely and drawing blue lines to cover the now empty space. Those lines didn’t need to be as perfect as Dominique Maes’ illustrations as you can see in the series of screenshots above.

We then reworked the LSO character, removing his arms and creating new ones so that we could illustrate the major standardized signals identified in a 1945 U.S. navy training book.

Key Landing Signal Officer’s standardized signals

That done, we let all the newly-created arms appear on the screen and it really looked like our officer had turned into a new-age Shiva goddess…

Based on the U.S. Navy training guide, we have selected not 5 mantras but 5 basic signals that we want to illustrate and use as part of the ebook’s gamification.

We still need to discuss them – understand negotiate 😉 – with the app developer though. In the end, they may not all be used, depending on the coding possibilities and user’s overall experience on this new page!

NB: we’ll use our small guy for take-off too… and hope that experts will not be annoyed with those artistic license/
