This pin up is the main reason I am trying to go to BronyCon for the first time this year. If I get just one, single item - it's this poster. I have seen a lot of fan art over the course of the past three years, but this is by far one of my all-time favorites. I don't really have much else to say other than I really, really, reeeeeeally like it. 20/10 would buy.
Of the vast array of images focused on her, this is, perhaps, the most lovely rendition of Spitfire I have ever seen.
Being the Captain of the Wonderbolts would suggest that she has many responsibilities and that her schedule is hectic and toilsome. In this, we can respect and honor her as an individual with great authority, but what we may forget, when she is not drilling the unit in an attempt to strengthen them, she is still a girl at heart. This depiction of Spitfire in a more "playful" behavior reveals that her role as a commanding officer does not conflict with her natural state of being. I believe that we can all agree that Spitfire truly desires peace, comfort, love, and a good life.
And, of course, what's a little recognition for being a high-class lady? Spitfire is iconic for being portrayed as a sexy pony. And why not?! She's the type of gal that most guys could only dream of being with. Heh heh, no doubt, I've known your style as being "occasionally saucy" as you put it, but being "casual" is also something that drives guys wild. Spitfire, in this image, as we can PLAINLY see, is very much casual. However, there is something quite appropriate about her. True, most of the attention may be directed, instantly, to her bottom, but it is the heartwarming expression on her face that I admire the most. This only serves to confirm that a cheerful smile coming from a beautiful girl is something wholesome and meaningful. It's the reassuring and heartfelt expression that produces a deep and wonderful feeling. It's the type of feeling that will make you fall in love.
Without saying, the internet is full of pornographic content of cartoon ponies, many featuring the luscious, bodacious Captain of the Wonderbolts, Spitfire! Trust me when I say I know, I have viewed many of them, willingly. However, of the images I have seen, how much more would I desire to see a beautiful pony girl like Spitfire smiling at the viewer, with joy and purity, as she is doing now. Truly, it's the kind of expression that will drive every male to pursue her.
Whatever people may think of her: a mere background pony, Captain of a famous flight team, or sex goddess, I believe that she is a wondrous girl at heart. Your style, indeed, portrays this with great effect. She is very attractive and her behavior is something that is cute and wholesome. No doubt, this is a grand display of Spitfire in a clean fashion. Excellent work.
