A common element within space opera science fiction is the space combat fighter. Vehicles such as the X-Wing and TIE Fighters from Star Wars set the mold for a tradition of spaceships based on fighter aircraft, with aerodynamic hulls and large wings. While those elements make sense for vehicles that fly in and out of atmospheres, a fighter operating purely in space does not require them.
In this Tuts+ Premium tutorial, Alex Ries will show you how to create a near-future space fighter without referencing these earlier science fiction designs. Instead, he will show you how to create a more realistic concept referencing the real world. This tutorial is available exclusively to Tuts+ Premium Members.
