How to Draw the Air Force Symbol
Start this tutorial by drawing out a square shape and then add the inner guidelines, as well as the wing guidelines.
You will now use the inner guidelines to draw the diamond shapes, and then draw the small circle or sphere in the middle.
Now it's time to start drawing out the Air Force wings as you see here. Start by draw the top part of the wing design, and then the shorter shape just underneath. When your done you can then move to the last drawing step.
All you have to do here in your last drawing step is, draw the tips of the Air Force wings that happen to look like triangles. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Description: Well, I have to say that I have been so darn busy lately, and because of that I missed my live session yesterday. Today I will start the day by uploading some really cool tutorials starting with “how to draw the Air Force symbol, step by step”. The United States Air Force is a military department for the air weaponry like fighter jets, stealth bombers, so on and so forth. The history behind the symbol isn't as old as you think. Back in the late 1990's it was determined that the Air Force needed a symbol to gather in new recruits like new high school graduates, college students, or anybody else that had, or didn't have an interest in joining the force. The symbol needed to encourage young adults to join, and to keep their current recruits understanding the importance of staying aboard to support the United States Air Force. The symbol is a registered trademark, and was created by a commercial company with the help and direction from the Air Forces senior leadership. What the final product resulted in was the incorporation of the WWII “Hap”Arnold, star, and the wings created in a way to represent the stripes of our strength. The wings are drawn on an angular shape, and divided into six sections. The six pieces stand for; air and space superiority, global attack, rapid mobility, precision engagement, information superiority, and agile combat support. The star in the middle stands for one force, one family, amongst other things, and then the solid sphere in the middle stands for global power. And at last the three diamonds the cup the star and wings represents the Air Force's core values. All in all the symbol is awesome looking, and I drew it to fill a request for a member who has a dad in the Air Force. I hope you like this tutorial that teaches you “how to draw the Air Force symbol, step by step". It's relatively easy to replicate, and when your done, you will have an awesome US logo that you can draw on the sketch of your air force pilot, fighter plane, or what have you. I will be back soon with more lessons for you guys to learn from. Stay tuned and happy drawing!
