Time to actually folllow the rules.

A Fly350 737-300 I made for Airline Empires.
Templates by MED,
Just to explain the design, it’s a Latvian airline, as shown by the silhouette in the livery. Just a simple, quirky design in a Leisure airline style.

Oh my god it’s back!

Some of you might remember this design from 2018. A member here made it for me. I’ve been developing my skills since then, and they’ve gotten to the point that I decided to re-create it!

It’s called Bluesky Airlines, based in Canada. Right now I’m working out the details but the main goal is to make a sort of Delta up north.

Credits to Med/Atsuk0/Blonde_bird for the template and Cayden_Smith for the OG livery and logos.

Here is mine - my fictional airline Worldlink’s A220-100.

Worldlink is a globally-based airline, with many many hubs. Credits go to Med for the template.

Here’s another one I found from my computer.

  1. Reagean Airlines is a Norwegian airline outside of IF I used to be a part of. I did a few livery designs.

  2. Template by MED as always.

  3. Kinda slapped together all the art myself lmao

I tried to make a retro-livery for Reagean on the DC-8. I kinda like it.

I made this in paint . net.

If you are trying to get to Med’s templates - it will show an error until you make an account.

I love this! Maybe add that Racoon Mask back 😉

I’m offended. Although I don’t know where the colour black comes into a iconic part of Canada lol. It’s still a livery I love.

It looks like to me, if Air Canda Rouge redesigned their livery and started serving the A320Neo… I want to imagine that now 🤤

Wait will the designed liveries get added in IF?

No, it’s just for people to showcase their (quite frankly amazing) skills by transforming a blank canvas into a great livery. It’s just for fun :)

And me thinking that the paintings we did would be added to the IF😕I was already happy. It would be an advance on the new paintings to be added

Air Canada Rouge I’m pretty sure does not have the NEO only the A321ceo
