I’m really excited to be bringing you this lesson today and it was made solely on an idea I had after watching a particular movie. The other night I watched a film called ‘Apocalypse Now’, and I have to say that it was one of the best military based movies I have ever seen next to Platoon. I know it’s been out for a while but this flick was awesome. I don’t really get into war films too much, but I just had to see what all the hype was about. Now I know why people say that Apocalypse Now is one of the best films ever made. The actors and story was absolutely amazing, and in tribute to the film, I wanted to make a tutorial that looked like one of the scenes, so here is “how to draw an Apache helicopter”, step by step. I believe that the Apache in this lesson is a Boeing AH-64. These attack helicopters were built by Hughes Helicopters from 1975 to 1984. After that McDonnell Douglas took over production from 1984 to 1997. Nowadays, it is Boeing Defense, Space, and Security that produces the Apache and they have been since 1997. These copters where built for one thing and one thing only, to do some serious damage. They are fully equipped with a night vision system, as well as with a thirty millimeter M230 Chain Gun which is displayed between in the area between the main landing gear. The AH-64 also has a four blade propeller set up, they carry a series of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles, and of course the Apache is also equipped with Hydra 70 rocket pods. This machine can do some serious destruction, and even though I’m not military machinery nut, I can totally see why enthusiasts go ape sh** over a beast like this. No wonder why my twelve year old brother loves building models of these things. Anyways, I did my very best to show you all "how to draw an AH-64 Apache". I hope you like this lesson and I also hope that you stick around to see what else I submit for you all. Peace out people and like always, enjoy!
