RE- MiG-31 "Firefox" by Kayoll RE- MiG-31 "Firefox" by Kayoll
This is a request from :iconthedrawliner:

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! :P

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.

Sorry about the background, it's hard to do clouds digitally!

I can see how you've got better through time, without loosing that flare you had, improving on it!

Also, Planes I find are quite hard to draw, but you've drawn it giving it a nice cartoonistic style too, and its just... well, good! But yeah, your work has a nice spark I like XD

It's one of many aviation aircraft jokes, with faces to make it look like a person? I'm sorry to offend you. I thought it was funny.

Why won't you find out what they draw in common?

Neat o' :)

Don't worry for the clouds they're better this way I guess ^_^

It's true he's based on the plane in the movie but with some modifications of course.
If I drew it like in the movie it would have made me claim that the idea of the plane is all mine while it's not.

Merci! :D

Really? I guess that's fine!

Oh... No wonder he looks much different than in the movie! Well, if you would draw it like in the movie, you should have credited the creator (like what I always do).

I always credit the creators of what my drawings give a reference to too :)
Although I don't give it a section in the description ^^
