Illustration for West End Games: Star Wars RPG...It's about time I showed proper respect to the great SW spacecraft designs by posting an illustration with a ship in it! What better than a Tie Fighter?
"There goes my insurance premium..."
Insurance? Uh oh. Now where's that paperwork? Errrr...more importantly...where's the glove compartant on this thing?
Thanks, Will! Yeaaah...I always thought Tie pilots were cool looking...as are the Biker Scouts. Them and the "Horses" they ride!
All the pilots have individual life-support systems in their suits that last for 3 days! Maybe the pilot's still alive!
Great work dude!
Great work dude!
I think to myself... What a wonderful work!
Thank you, Giant! I've always found the Tie (and the awesome-looking pilots who guide them)to be awesomely cool!
Great illustration! I love the inclusion of the the little pilot shadow in the cockpit.
That's exactly the level of detail I tried to put in my illustrations. Your attention to detail demonstrates why I paid attention to detail. I felt that it would matter to those who were building the adventures.
In my opinion, attention to detail is what separates the good artists from the great artists. And you are definitely one of the best artists I've ever seen.
Well I appreciate the kind words, Julie. They say "familiarity breeds contempt" and I fall into that catagory artistically. I'm rather familiar with my art, so I favor other artist's styles over my own.
Ah yes the only production fighter in the game where you have to worry about how much damage you do to the ship if you have a muscle spasm for any reason.
Yeah...wouldn't want to spill your hot coffee in your lap if your a Tie Pilot! Wwoooooo!
Cool. Even if I prefer X-Wings; many other space epics have similar ships, since X-Wings pretty much look like a stylized jetfighter... but TIE Fighters are not only very distinctive, but also one of the few first ships we see in the saga.
True. X-wings have that sleek look...but TIEs have that unique style. Alien. They speak more to the idea that aerodynamics aren't necessary in space. Plus...TIE pilots are cooool!
