Leaf on the Wind by Scarecrovv Leaf on the Wind by Scarecrovv
My submission for the 2013 Traveller charity calendar.
Two frontier scouts salute their comrades in the supply ship as it breaks for orbit.

Also subtitled, "Man punches spaceship into orbit."

this is a great piece. The mounts look really good and captures the feel of those silhouettes from the books

Looks a lot like a POLICE VIPER from the 1984 video game ELITE to me.

The Elite Viper and Elite itself were very much inspired by the Traveller role playing game, which braben and his friends played.

Ah, that certainly explains a lot. Thanks for the heads-up. I've never seen that chronicled anywhere, including in the notes which Ian Bell published at his site about his time developing ELITE.

Yeah, I absorbed it from somewhere. Probably a Traveller site. I'm not sure when the Keiths drew the original Suleimann design. It's possible, of course that whilst Traveller pre-dates Elite, the drawing itself doesn't and was, in fact based on the Viper :)
If I'd known I could have asked Braben when I met him a few months back - except I had no idea who he was until afterwards :D
