This one I tried to put more thought and time into, and planned it out before hand. But there is no such thing as a perfect livery, so...

I should also mention that I did not make the logo


It’s meh. Logo could be put in a different location and I don’t know what you were trying to go for with the name. But it’s better than what you’ve been putting out recently.

But seriously in GIMP there should be something called the pen tool or something like that. Basically it lets you draw shapes that should have more or less editable verticies. Use that coupled with some kind of grid to help you create something even. Beyond that sketch out ideas before committing to something, and even then edit that finished something. 

For those who don't know the "pen" tool is actually shortcut "b". With this you can choose the endpoints of the line and although it still uses pixels it also has gradient pixels, meaning edges are less rough because they seem to flow from one color to the next. It's very useful and I use it for most of the lines I use that aren't straight x-axis or straight y-axis lines, which are almost always best formed by just using the pencil.

Good, progress.

 

AP is supposed to stand for Atlantic-Pacific.

It's the logo of Fidelitone, but it does look a little bit like Northern's

I think now would be a good time to mention that without a free use license, expressed permission of the creator, or the expressed permission of whoever owns the trademark, that it is indeed illegal to just take random logos and graphics you find.

I thought that that was only for commercial usage, but will not do again.

The legal hangup is the part where you imply that it's yours by sticking a name you come up with on it. Which generally is poor practice.

So how do you declare that a part of it is not yours? Or do you just not do it?

I decided to change the background to a sky here, and made the colors darker on this one so it wouldn't look too "flat", unlike the first one. Why do you prefer the first?

The second background actually looks more flat, and it doesn’t really represent Uzbekistan in anyway. And I really recommend you lower the opacity of the background, it takes too much attention away from the livery.

Note the changes to the background and color scheme:

What's wrong with this background? IMO it looks better than the other one.

Still pretty dull and has nothing interesting to it. Also don’t like the purple on the fuselage.

What color could be used instead of purple? Should I also lower the opacity on the first background? Should the tail be recolored as well? (FYI the image used as the first background was pretty much the only good one I was able to find because others were too small relative to the size of the A330 template I chose.)
