Happy Illustration Friday on Saturday once again. First one for 2012! This week's prompt is "grounded", and I decided to draw an airplane. On the ground.
I wanted it to be a pretty airplane. It may be strange to think of a warplane as "pretty", but the Red Baron Fokker, I think, is rather pretty.
About a year ago or so, we watched the movie. Prior to that, when I would hear "Red Baron", I usually thought of Snoopy and/or pizza. I liked the movie, though. I probably wouldn't have chosen it, but the guys wanted to see it, so I watched along and enjoyed it.
Similarly, I appreciate how these Illustration Friday prompts get me to draw or paint things I might not normally draw or paint - like this little Fokker.
