Bomber Jacket Spitfire by Colour-Splashes Bomber Jacket Spitfire by Colour-Splashes
I'm particularly pleased with this one, since I took a bit of a gamble on the collar but I think it turned out awesome (not to toot my own horn or anything)!!! I've been working on it on and off for a bit so I decided to just finish it today as a break between commission work.
Two issues, however: I poured layers of clear nail polish into the goggle frames to give it the look of glass but some layers were too thick and they got a bit bubbly. Also, the mane and tail aren't as smooth as I'd like because I had to mix in tube acrylics (apparently I don't have red craft paint? WTF.).

Media:
Polymer clay (Sculpey Primo) on Applejack base. Painted with Americana craft acrylics and some random red tube acrylic paint I found. Goggles are filled with clear nail polish. Collar is a piece of off-white super bulky scrap yarn. Sealed with matte Mod-Podge.

I'd like to extend my thanks and give credit to the following artists and their work for inspiring this piece:

When I saw those 2 drawings I knew I had to make a Spitfire custom in a bomber jacket. Coolness like that doesn't just come around every day.

Aww this is so cute I like the different stuff added to make this toy like the fluff to the jacket and whatever is added to the goggles.

OMFG I've been looking to find out how this was made ever since I saw the picture on one of my Brony image sources. There isn't enough loves in dA to describe how much I loved this.

Since it's hard to tell the scale, mind telling me what Applejack model you used for the base? I want to make my own fail attempt at this AWESOME work.

Totally. It's not like I'm short on yarn! It would also be a good excuse to invest in a can of clear acrylic rather than using so much clear nail polish.
