This is a really good piece, it looks like a screenshot from one of the films. I like the colors, and the lighting of the model fits perfectly with the background. You have managed to give it a great sense of speed as well.
The model itself is beautiful ans sleek, like you would expect for a fast fighter. The shape is easily read and very coherent and believable. I always found the original Tie fighter to look a bit cumbersome, and the wings a bit flimsy. I think this is much better. You have imo managed to capture the essence of the tie fighter , but with improvements. this looks like the Mk2 version, faster and sturdier. The only thing I can fault is the guns, I think they could be a little bit bigger or more elaborate, maybe in a darker color to make them stand more out, but that is knitpicking. The overall shape and feel is that of a really good, and well thought through design, beautitully presented, well done!
What do you think?

TIE Raider - It reminds me of the Cylon Raiders from the New Battlestar Galactica Series.

Its a shame they don't modernize the star wars franchise. ^^ I love seeing fans on deviantart make better ship designs than see in comics and movies ^^

I really like this TIE design.Clap  I found myself dubbing it a "strategic interceptor." Likely it was designed to lead assaults and take on the X-wings. Perhaps it has a new or improved power plant that makes the solar panels less necessary; at least, that would be my theory.

Yeah I guess that the more refined TIEs could have some better power systems so that they were more independent.

aye, a couple thousands of those and the rebels wouldve had a harder time winning, because for 1 its a much smoother design, and has more armour protection, thus making it harder for x-wings and other variants to get through it. also room for better laser cannons, allowing for much stronger hits and also because of its design, basic sheilding could be intergrated! allowing the fighter to last much long in combat! (ever notice how the star wars universe is pretty much stuck in a looping circle of technology? pratically no one invents somthing new that hasnt been made earlier before!)

Yep the new trilogy was pretty useless in terms of new designs, because things actually looked more advanced and shared similar solutions from the ships of the original trilogy and it was difficult to look at it as one that has inferior tech.

:icondemondragonsoul:
Demondragonsoul Featured By Owner May 1, 2013
yeah, in some cases im sure the "old" tech would outstrip the new one, take the fact that tech from thousands of years ago can still outstrip tech from the trilogy, personal sheilding, no one has it but starships and oversize bases.

good design and concept and great artwork, but i doubt Imperials in the Original Trilogy era would commission such a design. The solar panels are too small to provide any energy boost to the craft worth the credits of installing them. The Fighter is too bulky for a TIE type craft especially with only two lasers as armament. Plus all that flat surface area is just asking to get shot by a rebel X-wing,
However, this design scheme could work if the ship was reworked to be a fighter/bomber or heavy fighter with upgraded weaponry and shielding.
remember when designing TIE's think mass production, fast, agile and cheap

AdamKop Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah this design surely wouldn't be easy for mass production and that's why I designed it :D All of the TIEs are cheap, simple and pose almost no threat, so this one could act as a leader ship for bigger fleets, taking on A-Wings and X-Wings, which could take on TIEs by the dozens.

Excellent work. Rather reminds me of a TIE Interceptor, but with more solidity, and less of a contrast between the cockpit ball and the sharp angles of the rest of the craft.

Really liking this TIE fighter concept as well. Looking at also reminds me a bit of a YT 2000 (with the forward mandibles and centered cockpit). For a possible new design this fighter could have a docking attachment, which allows it to be a freighter as well. Other ships that also have a docking attachment are the Lucrehulk and the Delta Skysprite.

Here is what I have so far done by using Lego Digital Designer.

I am really enjoying this build cause of all the angles :D

I really enjoy this, it has the feel of a TIE Interceptor meets the SWTOR Sith Fury-class Interceptor, if I may, I'd like to attempt to build this out of LEGOs.
