Commission #5: Beyond the Sky by Dreamkeepers Commission #5: Beyond the Sky by Dreamkeepers
This one was for Kalefnikov, the founder of the Dreamkeepers DA group. It was a pile of fun making this illustration- I havenít had a reason to draw a starship in quite a long time, probably not since high school.

And spaceships are cool- ESPECIALLY this one, considering itís not a work of fiction: The Lynx is a suborbital RLV (Reusable Launch Vehicle) under development by XCOR Aerospace. [link]

And I am infinitely pleased that the Lynx closely resembles the starfighter from a ĎChoose Your Own Adventure!í book in which I repeatedly died during grade school. Clearly this is how spaceships are supposed to look-

Cool.

Wow dude this is too awesome for words.

Wait does the Dreamkeepers world have starships?,car?, or vehicles like this?
because in the Grapic novels I only see non-powered vehicles, but I saw a tank in one of your drawings I think.
do they even have cars?

I know *Anduruna* doesn't have vehicles, just 'cuz of how they've developed through history. The closest they have are boats that use an aqueduct system. But other areas of the Dreamworld, who knows? It's an endless realm of fun. :)

Is it bad that I want to see you explain how this can happen in the actual story? Been a while since I read the background stuff about how building are built though ^^;
