Conwing L-16 "Sea Duck" by Kimura-Shinjiru Conwing L-16 "Sea Duck" by Kimura-Shinjiru
Growing up TailSpin was on of my favorite shows (2nd to Beast Wars). Back then I loved planes (still do, but not as much as cars these days). I recently came across some of the old comics I had and felt compelled to draw the plane (I loved it), and actually draw.

The plane took about a day to draw and color, the background is borrowed from my 3D project.

Download for full view. I put a fair bit of effort into the details.

TailSpin (C) Disney and all that good stuff.

:oo
The Sea Duck was my first thought when a saw Cabbie in Planes 2 :D
the basic shape looks the same, but the proportions are much bigger xD I`d like to see a reference to the Sea Duck in a future Planes movie :D

Glad you like it! When I was little it was own of my favorite shows, and the plane was one of the big reasons. Somewhere kicking around in a box I have one of those (hideously dis-proportioned) Sea Duck play sets.

Ah, back when Disney knew how to make good cartoons.

I did a lot of "research" on the seaduck before I began modelling my own 3d model and I think that your picture is one of the most impressing and inspiring ones of those I came across. Really great work!! I often used it as kind of a reference :)

Thanks! It took quite a bit of work to get it right. In the show the plane looked fine in motion but at a standstill it was always drawn anatomically incorrect. Glad you like it and that it was helpful for you!

Yeah really! I noticed that as well! Even the number of the round windows on the side did change from picture to picture.. I guess that's were the "freedom of art" comes in ;)

Thanks! The scenery is something I did a couple of years ago for my 3D car, it seemed like an appropriate background to use.
