Hammer and Anvil by MikeDoscher Hammer and Anvil by MikeDoscher
The 'Marigold Adventurer' makes another narrow escape, trading a little paint for something forgotten. The Jupiter Trojans are full of lost caches and hidden installations from the time of the Minute War. All are hazardous, and most are trapped to varying degrees. If it isn't nuclear mines, it may be hydrazine leaks or engineered prion infestations. This time they got the intact fuselage of an RF-21 for their trouble.

Howard Carter would know the game, if not the playing pieces.

All digital, but for an initial pencil sketch buried in there somewhere.

I might give that a try in modeling that. If you dont mind, that is.

Do I see hints of the Firefly-class in there? :D

I can see it- Wasn't really intentional, though. :) I'll probably go back and revise the design a little. The mounts for the outboard motors look a little flimsy. They don't really have to take a lot of torque, as those engines are high efficiency/low thrust ion units, but visually it doesn't look strong enough.

Love this - classic 70's Sci-fi cover feel, blasting backdrop, very metallic ship - excellent!

The "Marigold Adventurer" is so real looking and the background so lively that somehow it all works together. Briefly, I'm reminded of a salvage team strapping an old jalopy to the top of their trusty van, but that doesn't last long, because the Marigold Adventurer sure doesn't look like a van or an oceanic salvage tug or anything earthly.

Love it! :aww: It reminds me of a bug ... I like the ghosting of the ships in the BG - it gives off that effect that they are in a thick smog of some sort. That or a really dangerous explosion, as implied XD.
