CSC -141A Williamson Starcraft LTD cargo ship by Artraccoon
CSC -141A Williamson Starcraft LTD cargo ship
Milieu: Axis Universe

The CSC-141 is a frontier cargo hauler with a single jump 300 light-year range.  This craft is usually found on "off-route" cargo runs to colonies, mining outposts, and other such frontier locations off the main commercial routes.   The ship features massive bow mounted clam shell doors for the handling of large cargo, and smaller side doors.  It also has some passenger capability, with modest accommodations.  The two orange hatches on top are for the bays that g-coil stevedore mechs or robots are kept.  The round dome over the secondary drives houses the hyperwave communications system.  Between the three large plasma drives is the FTL/Traction drive systems.   Some of these frontier cargo ships do sport armaments, but if this one has any they are well hidden.  Dixon Transport Services operates this vessel, and it approaches the desert planet of Amzara, to deliver supplies to  colonists conducting planetary modification efforts there.  The neighboring world is an uninhabitable place with an dense atmospheric mix of chlorine and other gases.
Qa'ruul Light cargoship by Artraccoon
Qa'ruul Light cargoship
Milieu: Axis Universe

Qa'Ruul class Light Cargoship built and used by the Schazzhen.  Schazzen use many ways to build their spacecraft, and this one is created using metallic and silicate accretion, hence it's organic form.  The rear is where the large clamshell cargo doors are, nestled between the plasmadrives.  The stardrives are contained under the two nodules above the plasmadrives, and the two long appendages are hyperspace field projectors.  The large glowing yellow blister and the two smaller appendages are sensor systems.  The script along the top gives the ship's name and purpose, in this case the "Es'lani-unda" a free merchant operating off of the Altair Grand Trunk Route.

Feltap Z Gee
Keivee, a Fel'Tap space adventurer has just come in from the vacuum of space.  She had fun outside the ship exploring, but now she can hardly wait to ditch her vac-gear. 

Design notes: Okay the Idea was to give a Fel'Tap girl  a Barberella style I just got to do the follow on images...

Lot's of stuff in the works!! I just posted the "Rai Navigatrix" on DA and Pixiv and on my Artraccoon Empire FB page. Expect to see more Rai characters in the very near future.  Other SF works are coming soon as well...more aliens, Fel'Tap girls, more spaceships, and girls with guns.  Oddly there are several starship engineers in the works as well.  So watch this space!!

Hey Can You Do StingRay, ThunderBirds, Captain Scarlet, & TerraHawks Vehicles?
Artraccoon Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2014
I can, but a lot of folks do those already.  I do have roughs for "updated" versions of Thunderbird 1, the SPV, and assorted vehicles from UFO.  I've got some very rough sketches of a modernized Stingray and Junglecat.  Sadly I'm not very familiar with TerraHawks.
