Well, I have to say that I have been so darn busy lately, and because of that I missed my live session yesterday. Today I will start the day by uploading some really cool tutorials starting with “how to draw the Air Force symbol, step by step”. The United States Air Force is a military department for the air weaponry like fighter jets, stealth bombers, so on and so forth. The history behind the symbol isn't as old as you think. Back in the late 1990's it was determined that the Air Force needed a symbol to gather in new recruits like new high school graduates, college students, or anybody else that had, or didn't have an interest in joining the force. The symbol needed to encourage young adults to join, and to keep their current recruits understanding the importance of staying aboard to support the United States Air Force. The symbol is a registered trademark, and was created by a commercial company with the help and direction from the Air Forces senior leadership. What the final product resulted in was the incorporation of the WWII “Hap”Arnold, star, and the wings created in a way to represent the stripes of our strength. The wings are drawn on an angular shape, and divided into six sections. The six pieces stand for; air and space superiority, global attack, rapid mobility, precision engagement, information superiority, and agile combat support. The star in the middle stands for one force, one family, amongst other things, and then the solid sphere in the middle stands for global power. And at last the three diamonds the cup the star and wings represents the Air Force's core values. All in all the symbol is awesome looking, and I drew it to fill a request for a member who has a dad in the Air Force. I hope you like this tutorial that teaches you “how to draw the Air Force symbol, step by step". It's relatively easy to replicate, and when your done, you will have an awesome US logo that you can draw on the sketch of your air force pilot, fighter plane, or what have you. I will be back soon with more lessons for you guys to learn from. Stay tuned and happy drawing!
