[Commission] - Challenging the Sun

Our ancestors harnessed the power of a sun, and so again shall we.
Comissioner Pravin Lal, "The Science of Our Fathers" - [SMAC]

No fancy stories this time. Just the single largest scale commission I've done to date. Created by twilightsaint I've been wanting to show off another aspect of this character that I've had in mind since I created her. So outside of her job as a negotiator, Seljhet likes to use the money shi makes to fund a rather expensive hobby of racing. Inspired by the Race the Sun indie game, I pretty much let Twilight go crazy with the entire design beyond the ship. The amazing Racing suit design and background is just great.

With her fancy solar powered hovercraft, Seljhet takes a look at the latest racing course she has entered. Using the finest racing equipment she can buy, the Motmot mentally prepares herself for another dangerous, highspeed race through sunblasted canyons and ghost cities, dodging obstacles, mirages and other racers.

I really love this thing, It just looks totally badass and really pushes the scifi setting, and I look badass in Black and red.

The ship/setting is based on the indie game Race the Sun, which I am a huge fan of. Video of one of my more successful runs in the game here! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQUJo9Phb9M
