It doesn't look like a Santhe/Sienar design, but it is really cool.

Thanks :) I actually wanted to go beyond the traditional design and explore some truly radical changes.

Actually, the YT-style cockpit was used already for the TIE Phantom. So this isn´t entirely new.
But the rest is, the solar panels look like they fold out similar to a flower. I´m naming it: TIE Romance! Or better TIE Bouquet?
That collar is interesting, does it have a certain function?

Haha I wasn't planning any name for it :D It could be the Boquet :P

The collar might have had a function planned to it, but I don't remember what was it supposed for. Perhaps with all the folding wings it could dive underwater and hunt Mon Calamari ? The collar would then serve as a stabilizer ... or something like that ...

Then TIE Bouquet it is!
The design has a couple of nice ideas to it.
The two laser cannons aside, does it feature any secondary weapons like missles or torpedoes?

Hmmm I don't remember :D I must have had something planned, but since I didn't do the 3D model, I just skipped that.

So your 2D paintings are "just prework" for the 3D model, where last details are added?
I get the impression, you tend to work in multiple layers, each new layer more detailed then the one before.

Yeah I do that, but I wanted to go 3D with this one. I would add more details on the 3D model, but I abandoned the project and it just didn't get finished.

This looks fantastic. Are you planning a 3D version at all.

Yeah I will get all of my 2D concepts into 3D this year :)

I look forward to seeing them. I plan on getting some of your fighters into low poly 3D this year as well. :D

That's a very interesting design. Could almost see this being used as a submarine! Certainly unconventional, but it fits!

By the size of it it could easy use Warhead Launchers, Shields and a Hyperdrive too!

I like the wing positions on this very cool.

Thanks :D It was quite tricky to design a TIE that different, but in the end it was worth it - now I have something to base my new TIEs on :)

I can imagine, you really have to look out of the box to do something vastly different with the TIE design.

Yeah if Lucas asked me, I would gladly give him the ship :P Once I'm done with the concept drawing I will get onto making a more detailed 3D model.

You can always try with designing something simple - if you never did anything, it will be even more fun :D

that's a very interesting design. =)
I'm curious how it looks when it's finished.

Thanks :) It won't change much from what you can see here but I will add some details and textures.

Now this is different, I'm going to watch this like a kid at Christmas watches the toy shop.

Great work Adam. :D

Thanks :D It was exciting for me as well, because I only did standard cockpit+wings TIEs up until now. I have one more on the sketchpad but that will have to wait.

It's nice every now and then to see an original design, great job looking forward to seeing progress on this one when you get to it. :D

Yeah I had to make that departure, because I was running out of "cool" ideas to the ship. I'm also having problems with this one, but I will try to get it done today. I hope that the other ones will be a sort of turning point to TIE design as well :)

I look forward to your update. Having the same old all the time can actually make your earlier designs be less original, so new and fresh each time is the way to go, which you have been doing with your Star Wars ships quite well.

Thanks :D I made a more traditional concept and decided that it's too boring. I will try to mix in more exotic ships, veering off the known design styles.
