Part I

Really interesting pics here, but no female artists’ spaces?

I save them as I find them, and I have not personally come across any studios of female artists, whose work I am familiar. 

New toys. 
Zig Pen + G-Nib + Zig Sumi Ink.

I’ve always used pigment liners or brushpens for my drawing, so using a dip pen for the first time in 25 years is a bit of a shock to the system.

Astounded by the quality of line you can get, and the fineness. I think the thinnest line I can draw with the G-Nib is about 1/5 the thickness of the best I can manage with a 0.05 Pigma Micron pen.

Life among the rocks.

Two man, inter-settlement freighter. Used to ferry supplies and fuel. Can couple a variety of cargo units allowing for greater capacity.

Various ships, flyers, freighters, jigs and speeders.

A selection of craft that ply their trade between settlements in the asteroid belt and as far out as the outer planets. Mining and processing rocks for metals and rare-earth elements before selling them on to the established and up-and-coming outposts between Mars and Neptune.

Many of the craft are built just for work in the vacuum of space, no need for aerodynamics or streamlining. Basic agglomerations of control pods, living quarters and cargo units. Some of the freighters and skiffs occasionally skim the atmospheres of the gas giants to collect gases and materials for the F-Drives that power almost all craft, blade-like fins and rudders give extra control in these rarified environments.

Many of the ships are based on old designs, modified and upgraded when necessary. Parts and technology interchangeable between many different classes of craft, resulting in the mongrel look of this rag-tag fleet.
