The Spitfire is an iconic symbol and will stir many memories for those involved in the war. This is an example of how to create an illusion of the plane flying by using some simple techniques in covering the board and given the wing angles using sugarpaste clouds. Paul uses google images to research the plane and to create his template (atttached) and constantly refers back to the drawing to ensure the detail matches up. Its one of those designs that you can spend hours on, but here Paul takes you through the stages in just over an hour.
