This amazing animated short by artist Paul Johnson pays homage to the late 80s early 90s Japanese anime style TV programmes of that era.
TIE Fighter is a work of passion by Johnson and it shows. It took him four years to painstakingly hand draw the entire short. He explains:
“What if there was an Empire-focused short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards.”
There is no need to apologise Paul. You nailed it!
