: I just saw somepony doing a sonic boom. Looks like he or she could become part of our flying team.Spitfire
: She's an alicorn. Parcly Taxel, princess or dean, whatever you call her.Soarin'
: Oh. impala99
could well hurry up with the Luna wallpaper he promised Parcly…
This picture was initially conceived as Spitfire and Soarin' practising in a vertical wind tunnel like that found on Sentosa
– I've visited it twice – intending to depict actual skydiving training. After drawing out body shapes I realised that having them in open sky made more sense, and with minimal alterations placed them on opposite sides of a cloud (which pegasi would perceive as some sort of "terminal" or meeting point if they were flying around). The sky colours and gradients are taken from Pink Is the Warmest Colour
, Taxel's boom intentionally resembles real-life sonic booms (albeit with tail colouration like Rainbow Dash's sonic rain
boom), the cloud style is taken from a Psyxofthoros Princess Twilight
and the title puns on the two Wonderbolts' names: Supermarine
Spitfire and Søren Kierkegaard
