Spitfire Vs. Spitfire by LaptopGun Spitfire Vs. Spitfire by LaptopGun
Finally managed to finish this. Not nearly as good as I was hoping, but I guess I'm still learning. The Spitfire (plane) shown is the Mark 2 variant. This was also my first real attempt at trying to draw a landscape. Still learning my tablet, shaky lines everywhere. Ah well.

Any tips for improvement would be much appreciated. Especially on drawing pegasus wings, I'm awful at those.

Edit: I absolutely can't believe this got onto EQD's drawfriend, its totally blowing my mind. Combined with the painkillers I'm taking which are making me feel a bit loopy (literally got my wisdom teeth taken out this very morning) it almost seems unreal... thank you so much everypony, this is such an unbelievable honour for someone like me, to see it up there with so many other people's amazing art. I never thought something like this would happen. /manly tear

I wonder if Spitfire has any sisters that go by the names of Seafire and Hurricane...

Thank so much! ^.^ And they are indeed. Heck, pegasi can make sonic rainbooms and tornadoes, so I'd say she has a pretty good chance for sure. ;)

Oh, yeah! I forgot that pegasi(especially Spitfire and Rainbow Dash) can break the sound barrier. :P

Maybe she should challenge Chuck Yeager and his hypersonic jet after she lets the classic spitfire eat her dust. :P

Ouch, I had my wisdom teeth out myself. I hope you get over it much faster than I did, my friend.

But damn, the oral surgeon has some good sh*t to put you under, doesn't he? ;)

Cool drawing, man. I love old WWII aircraft, and ponies only sweeten the deal. :D

Brohoof to a fellow wisdom toothless friend! :D And yeah, the pills afterwards kinda make up for what you had to go through. xD But thank you very much! I'm a huge fan of WWII planes as well, and have had this idea kicking around for a while. Glad I was finally able to finish it :)

Yeah, I likes me some WWII stuff, too. Even made some OCs based on a few, hired a guy to make a picture for a story I was writing 'bout 'em.

But yeah, had my wisdom teeth out years and years ago. The oral surgeon I went to used an IV to knock me out, and man, that stuff when you wake up makes you feel like sunshine and rainbows. Really good stuff. The pills afterwards were meh, just took the pain away from the giant, bleeding holes in my mouth. :XD: I'm just glad you only have to go through that once!

Anyway, take care man, and get well soon.

Nice OC's! I particularily like Hellcat. :) And yeah, I vaguely remember asking the oral surgeon after I was still on the IV stuff what his favourite airplane was when I woke up (no idea why I asked that xD) and telling the nurses they were pretty. Felt great until it wore off and the pain kicked in.

But thanks!

I always enjoy art with ponies and planes, also is your name a reference to the Laptop Gun from Perfect Dark?

Awesome work. I have to admit that I am really rusty on plane tech but that spitfire looks like it rolled right out of the factory. These had merlin engines am I correct?

Yep you're completely right! They were powered by V-12 Merlin engines :)

Absolutely amazing work! The level of detail on the spitfire plane is incredible, plus the overall anotomy of spitfire is great, And I do love and notice the detail you put in making the brackish water look brackish plus the rolling hills. Amazing! And on a more amusing note, Dat determination on spitfire.

Nice job. Not easy to get a good contrast between two different styles and bring them together. Tolk you a bit to do the plane though i can tell. A lot of details to it.

LaptopGun Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Thanks! It took quite a while, yeah. The hardest part on the plane was the wings and actually getting the little Celestia roundels on the wings looking acceptable. Tablets can be hard to use, bleh
