How To Draw A Tie Fighter, Tie Fighter, Star Wars
To draw a Tie Fighter, it's best to first draw a 3 dimensional cube shape. Because of the angle we will be working at, draw your cube somewhat tall and draw the sides a bit shallow (almost like a rectangular cube, rather than a square cube). Draw the
We need to find the center location for both sides of the cube, as well as the very center for the cube itself. Draw an X from corner to corner on each side of the cube (red lines). The intersection of the X's will be the center of the sides. Then dr
Our final guide lines are diagonal lines that run through the X intersections as seen here. Be sure that these lines are parallel to the top and bottom edges of the cube. The lines should protrude beyond the front and back edges of the cube just slig
Now that all of our guide lines are in place, let's begin working on the outer framework of the wings, which are vertical rather than horizontal. The wings each have six side, the top and bottom side are in line with the top and bottom edges of our
Next, let's draw the inner framework of the wings. Each wing should have 3 long beams running from corner to opposing corner, creating a 6-sided star shape. The intersections should meet the X intersections we created in step 2. It's ok if the inters
Erase the intersections created in the previous step so that we can insert circular connection panels. These panels are covered with plates, panels, and random circuitry. The arms that connect the wings to the cockpit will mount in the center of the
To draw the cockpit, use your circular guide line created in step 2 to draw a more precise circle. Use your circular template tool or protractor in order to create perfect circles. At the lower, left section of the circle is the window. It is in a ci
Before we draw more detail on the cockpit, we need to draw the arms that connect it to the wings. These are large, cylindrical shaped pieces that are covered with panels. Notice how the arms are wider where they connect to the cockpit than they are t
Let's return to the wings and draw grooves on the large panels between the framework. Each panel is covered with a series of lines running parallel to themselves which point in the general direction where the cockpit arms connect to the wings.
Let's add more detail to the starfighter by adorning it with more panels and plates. Notice how the cockpit has numerous rounded plates that start near the window and wrap around towards the back of the cockpit. Don't forget to draw the two small las
This is a good time to ink the image. Using Micron marker, a ruler, and a circular template tool, carefully ink over your pencil marks. Be careful not to ink any unneeded guide lines or pencil mistakes. After you're done inking, erase your pencil mar
To make the image more interesting, let's draw the Tie Fighter flying through space. Black out the entire background of the image with a brush and ink or a fat felt tipped marker. Also black out the window.
If you wish, you can add a couple of laser beams being shot out by the blasters. To do this, use white ink or opaque white paint to draw two parallel lines starting at the blasters and bleeding off the page. Make sure that these lines are parallel to
