Githyanki Spelljammer by juanosarg Githyanki Spelljammer by juanosarg
This drawing took me 4 years...

The ship is a Githyanki Spelljammer vessel. The githyanki are a fictional humanoid race in the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, and Spelljammers are magical flying ships capable of space travel between Prime Material Plane worlds. Sadly, the Spelljammer campaign setting was cancelled with the 3rd edition of the game. I based this one on some astral carrack drawings I saw on the internet.

I tried to give the drawing a videogame sprite feeling (including those low-palette clouds). Drawn with a pencil and coloured with Photoshop using some incredibly shoddy techniques that I'd never recommend to anyone...

This is great!  May I use this in next month's issue of Wildspace: the Spelljammer Fanzine?  spelljammerblog.wordpress.com.  Our theme is ships. :)  I will be happy to link anywhere you like in return.

This is a great design! I wouldn't say it looks like a game sprite, but it's got a cartoony style all its own and I find it really pleasing. I've just discovered Spelljammer and I'm in love with the setting. :D

Brilliant work, Juanosarg!

Tell me, is this a canon Spelljammer ship or one that you have invented yourself?
