Latavi Dropship Pin-Up
"ON TARGET"is the what this bit of Latavi pin-up art is called and that's what the words at top in Latavi say. And her rump has landed "On Target".  It decorates the nose of Latavi Model 5 troop carrying dropship used to deploy their heavy armored shocktroops.  The weapon and what little gear she's wearing reflect parts of the full gear those troops have. 

This will feature in a future illustration that will depict the dropship and watch this space. 
A-Kon 26 Staff T-Shirt by Artraccoon
A-Kon 26 Staff T-Shirt
This is the artwork I did for the A-Kon 26(June 2015) staff t-shirt.   Aki is in the lead toting a sword, Uma jets about toting a really big gun, and two battle pods crewed by mice hover while a new Herobot rockets up ward.   Join the team, and fight the evil power from beyond the Earth! 
Pirate Fighter Pin-Up Art
On the hull of the ACA-80 Pirate Fighter is the bit of Pin-Up Art.  For your enjoyment here is a close up.  The lettering is different, but looks cool. 
ACA-80 Pirate Fighter by Artraccoon
ACA-80 Pirate Fighter
    This is an ACA-80 fighter, fairly common among the independent outworlds.  This example is used by the "Boro Cluster Pirate Gang".   ACA-80s are easy to maintain and modify. and fairly rugged craft.  The missile armament varies, but this example is packing the standard four 30mm pulse laser cannons, two 20mm projectile cannons, and two triple missile pylons packing MMM-4D missiles.  The Boro Pirates operate these fighters from two large mother ships, one an armed converted freighter, the other an old battleship from some defunct Outworld regime.   

Design notes:  This design was based very much on the  Nieuport-SNCAO ACA-5, a French super-light fighter project of 1939.  
RPS-41D ShadowRay Recon Elint Craft by Artraccoon
RPS-41D ShadowRay Recon Elint Craft
 The Interstellar Axis Space Force's top line recon and intelligence gathering craft.   Information is a key to success in battle and in galactic politics, and the need to gather up to date and accurate information is the reason for ships like the RPS-41D.  The RPS-41D( Recon/ Patrol/ Surveilence ) uses assorted types of sensors, electronic & hyperwave eavesdropping systems, and tracking systems.  With a crew of 3 to 6, depending on the mission, the RPS-41D is used to shadow threat forces' fleets, suspected pirates and other criminals, gather information on space traffic, map and scan local environments, eavesdrop on planetary communications, and even generally monitor whole systems.  Using various stealth features ,well thought out flight paths, and excellent piloting skills, the RPS-41D can be almost invisible.  For those times that trouble does find the RPS-41D, it has weapons for self-defense and to aid an escape.  It is armed with two twin 7.6cm Plasmabolt cannon mounts with wide forward arcs, two front mounted 4cm Pulse Laser cannons in ball swivels, and one aft firing 3cm twin Pulse Laser cannon mount.  The 45 meter wide RPS-41D has surprising speed and maneuverability for a craft it's size, almost on par with heavy fighters and attack craft.  The FTL system has a maximum range of an estimated 500 light-years between between drive coil reset and recharge( 7 HRS), at a speed of 6.9 light years an hour. Most of these stats have been obtained from Axis Fleet open sources and may not reflect actual operational statistics.

 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...…
