As a pilot irl, I like how you portray the TIE Pilot posing for a portrait next to his air- er..spacefighter! Something all pilots do. :) Love the kill marks as well. Very awesome.

Pretty good, although those kill marks would not be there because TIE pilots fly a different fighter every time.

maybe the kill marks is not for the pilot but for the tie :)

They were not shown very much in the films but I was always fascinated with them myself. Great job of giving them the spotlight, I especially like how the older kill marks are rubbing off with age, great details all around though!

Even though I cannot see the expression of his face inside the helmet, the way the pilot pose says it all.
He is proud to serve the Galactic Empire.

One of the best Imperial arts I've ever seen! Keep up the good work! Even though you ARE keeping up the good work!

 J'adore des reflets sûr le casque,  l'armement et la transition entre des couleurs chaudes et froids, aussi bien que les petits details -  instantfave :heart:

i'm surprised that no tie pilot died though. normal tie fighters have no shields after all

mandatory requirement for piloting TIE fighter aside from excellent pilot skills:
