Had this one in the works for about two weeks, mostly due to struggling with the ship design, albeit only a silhouette in the distance. Everything I had sketched out at first was just a tired, cliched rocket. A friend of mine, Brock McGinnis, suggested something like an X-Wing or a Gunstar, more fighter craft than launch vehicle. That shifted the piece from a vertical take-off to something more like what you see here. In the end, after playing a bit of Sine Mora (A bullet Hell shooter with bullet time), I was browsing the app stores and PSN market when I came across Strikers Plus, one of my favorites. This led me to the XF5U, or flying pancake.
