The PAK-FA recently underwent it's first taxi and test flights. I've seen a lot of drawings (with lots of speculation) out there of the aircraft but have yet to see an actual picture.
Has anyone seen one?

To maybe answer my own question. I stumbled upon this this morning:

The Russians would put a star or a tri-colour on the vstab. Even during the Soviet regime, they never flew an aircraft without national markings, or tactical codes. Three-digit tactical codes are common on development and testing aircraft. The prototype would not be unmarked like the pic above.

I hope it looks like one of these; http://www.automotto.org/entry/designer-renders-russia-s-fifth-generation-stealth-superfighter/

The aircraft resembles the canceled YF-23 more than the F-22A. There are F-22A elements in the vertical and horizontal stabilizers. The YF-23 featured a form of V-tail, without a separate v-stab/h-stab..
