The name is a little odd but the livery is actually pretty good!

Here's a cargo airline I'm fiddling with called Pony Express. Created the old livery a few years ago, and the new livery earlier today.

Okay, so this is actually pretty good, but here's my feedback anyway:

1. The name is really weird. I don't have a clue what it could symbolize or why it was chosen. If you have an explanation, I'd love to hear it.

2. On the newer livery, I'd make the whole upper winglet blue rather than make it just like the fuselage. It looks like glass the way it is right now due to the way it matches up.

3. Save your work as .PNG, not .JPG because the quality of .png's is much better.

For 1, look at the post below as he explained it.

It makes sense within the context of it being a fictional airline set in an MLP project me and some friends had - if it isn't something you're okay with, at least try to ignore that fact. I just wanted to explore the application of real-world design cues to a fandom whose idea of 'aircraft liveries' involving pasting ponies onto the side of airplanes, ugh.

Also, I did save it as a PNG - I'm not sure if uploading to the site compresses it in the process.

Here's the updated livery with the fully blue upper wingtip.

And here's the same livery on a 747-8F.

On another note, here's another one of those 'pony airlines' I've helped develop, and I even tried making a history of its livery from the 1940s to today.

Note: the original design I proposed to my friend for this airline was the second from the bottom. After some reviewing we both realized that it looked too bland, even for a supposedly blandish-looking Eurowhite plane. I decided to reuse it, calling it a late '90s/early 2000s era pre-restructuring livery.


No bucks to give, and none the wiser.

Thoughts? Washingtonian is a legacy carrier based in IAD, and founded in 1967. This is the 90's livery. Also, I think AE is compressing the file.

Very battleship, but blander. I'd say it needs some work...the biggest issue I can see here is I'm not sure how many airlines had logos positioned like that on 90s liveries. Somehow it seems to me that the logo should be smaller.

Thanks for replying! I will make the logo smaller and adjust some other things too

Also maybe some kerning is needed between the G and T in the title.
