This is a request from
It's his main "OC" (although the plane where it's based on is fictional and has the same name as it was in the movie), Firefox.
I've never heard of this movie before so the first thing that came into my mind when ~thedrawliner asked me to do "Firefox" for him is the internet browser logo of Mozila Firefox!
I just found out it was an OC of his when he gave me the references. The original pic of this was based on his drawing. I actually gave Firefox some changes and improvements to make him look more aerodynamic... I also changed his emblem on the rudder (it used to be an angry missile or snake... I think. I changed it into a red eagle). So I thought that his plane is A-OK and ready to be colored... until I did a research of this fictional
MiG-31 plane. I found out it was from a movie and not his creation! So I was like "What the hell?! My interpretation of Firefox looks really different to the actual plane in the movie!" (that's because I based it on his drawing, not the one in the movie) So I re-drew the back section (because that's the only part that's different. The cockpit part looks the same anyway) using the tablet, it took me 30 minutes to do that, and I don't like drawing lineart using the tablet! And also, I added the small wings on the front (like from the Eurofighter Typhoon's, and the TU-144's... Sergei has them!), his original work doesn't have one. I kept the rudder emblem I made for Firefox and added the MiG logo as well. Although I'm not sure about the collar whether it lights or not, I think it looks better when it lights up.
