Robert and Company by Artraccoon
Robert and Company
The trio of Sad Puppies have finished the work on their latest project, "Robert the Robomutt", named as all the puppies are for SF&F lits this case Robert Heinlein.   This was done for the new "Sad Puppies 4" campaign..."The Embiggening"...this time an effort to get fans involved in the whole Hugo Awards process and to have really represent the "fan faves" in SF&F instead of the process being dominated by insiders.  The eventual democratization of fandom, to have fun, and to encourage creative efforts!!  This version is without the letters( that version can be seen at the link below at the Mad Genius Club), so that it can be seen fully...and so that maybe SJWs can enjoy it's artfulness without so much guilt.  ;P

More about it…
Expedition 33 Security Officer by Artraccoon
Expedition 33 Security Officer
Risa Zowe is one of Expedition 33's Security Officers.  She checks her scanner to check the perimeter of the exploration area and monitor the expedition members positions. 
Expedition 33 Senior Science Officer by Artraccoon
Expedition 33 Senior Science Officer
  Mu'Klar, a Kii'Purtii, is Expedition 33's Senior Science Officer.  He points out something of interest, and will trundle over to examine it, no doubt using some of research gear he has overpacked...but he insists he has to have it all.  His size and strength at least allows him to tote the load.  
Exploration Team 33 by Artraccoon
Exploration Team 33
 Fel'Tap expedition commander Korii and her Nezuni science officer Zellpi examine strange artifacts and the environment on an alien world.   Kitzu crew member Rolkr operates his light mecha and uses a scanner pole fitted with a light to help scan the area.  Two scout craft scanning and mapping the area zip by in the background. 

The piece will be used as the cover of the next issue of Jarlidium Press zine, "North American Fur", issue 33.   

I'll be posting more crew members that didn't make the cover, and probably will go into more detail in the future about the crew and equipment of ExT33.
Sabrefalcon SF-61 Fighter by Artraccoon
Sabrefalcon SF-61 Fighter
Milieu: Axis Universe

 A SF-61 Block C "Sabrefalcon" fighter from the 94th Squadron of the American Federation contingent of Solar Union forces in the Interstellar Axis, patrols a frontier region.  Considered a "second line" fighter, it is still well liked by pilots and very adaptable.  This model is often referred to as a "missile slinger" with the x-plan wingtips loaded with missiles instead of pulse laser cannons.  Other than missile armament, the fighter as two 3cm. nose mounted laser cannons, two 3cm. laser cannons mounted on the lower wings, and two heavy punching 7.5cm. particle beam cannons mounted in the upper wing roots.  

Design Notes: This crazy craft was inspired by an old Processed Plastics toy that was little more than a F-16 fighter with 4 wings.  I decided that plan form would be fun to work with, add a little classic Old School Anime styling and TADAAA!...The SF-61!!.   The "Hat in the Ring" was the REAL emblem of the 94th squadron of the U.S. Army Air Corps in WW1.

 Howdy!   On my "Artraccoon's Studio Page" on Facebook, I'm doing a series where I'm sharing a work in progress.  It's a loose step-by-step showing how I work on a piece of artwork. In this case a futuristic race queen posed on the nose of a racing aerospace craft parked at a show and race event. You all will see it from it's start as a BiC pen sketch, to inks, to digital colors, background development , to final I do it.  I'll try to do something daily on it, as time and work permit.  It's a glimpse into my process if you all are interested, and I hope you enjoy it.  Sexy redhead alert.   

You can get there from here...…

Whoopie doo...they didn't like different opinions or challenges.  They put their politics first, friendship and humanity last.    I can't worry too much about them, I've things to to make, stories to write, and battles to be fought to help save the soul of SF&F.  Funny enough, I've made a lot of new associations, most of them successful authors, outside of our usual mutual circles.
