My latest and greatest images right here. No spefic genres but rest assured of 2 things:

1: Most of my images are for my pending RPG and 2: I retain all copyrights to all of my original works no ifs, ands, or buts. Do not copy my work I will make a federal case out of it.

All that fan art you can have so long as I get credit for creating the image and you post this link :
That should just about cover it. Thanks for viewing and all the faves folks. I'll say it again in person rest assured.


My collection of some of the coolest art and ideas DA has to offer.

Fastest Hunk of Junk in the Galaxy
I saw a piece of art on here that made me want to one up the artist (petty I know but I get that way sometimes.) I noticed while recreating this scene that in the movie the falcon has not 3 but 5 sets of landing gear...kinda took some of the fun out being so damned accurate with the image. Oh well it's as close as I'm gonna get. Enjoy fanboys/girls
The Blue Demon by Spydraxis01
The Blue Demon
The Black Mantis has asked me to accompany him to, of all things, a slave market. I despise slavery no matter whether it's legal in some systems or not.  

"What's the big idea? You know how I feel about this sort of thing."

"So there is a line you do not cross?"

"You know there is."

"In that case, you'll probably hate what comes next."

As we gaze out of the windows a massive Hadean drags out a small blue figure scantily clad in no more than a couple of flimsy cloths. As he chains the small humanoid to the struts on the left and right it becomes obvious that the creature is humanoid...and female. I feel a hand on my wrist as the Black Mantis stops me from subconsciously reaching for my gun. I hate Hadeans and this one I just want to kill where he's standing. I turn to the Black Mantis and ask:

"Why the hell did you bring me here? Is this some twisted game you're playing or what?"

"No son, this is a test to see how you handle impossible situations. You can't kill everyone here, many of which are innocent bystanders, but I'm guessing the do gooder in you won't let this continue either so now you have to make a decision.  Leave with your tail between your legs or..."

He doesn't get to finish the sentence, before I start bidding.  What transpires next has to make history...every stinking sentient that comes down the ramp i pay dearly for and have them transported aboard my ship to be returned to their homeworld or wherever the hell they want to be dropped of...with a few credits in their pockets.

The Black Mantis only wanted to see if I was a hero...Bastard...I'll be back here alright...and that Hadean...I get his name oh yes and one dark night in a shadowy room I ma gonna pay him a visit.  For now all the slaves are freed save one...the blue female from the first bid. One of my officers calls me stating she does not wish to be free...Dafuq?  What creature in their right mind doesn't WANT to be free?  I conclude my business with the Black Mantis and flip him off for good measure rotten bastard that is the last time he ever asks me for a favor, I knew it was going to bite me in the ass.  On board my new ship (I gave the Lillun to Harley)I am greeted in the EMT room by none other than the little blue...demon?  at only 4 feet tall she is gorgeous as all get out. Two small horns sweep backwards from her forehead and she's not wearing a stitch of clothing...this is gonna be one of those days.

"I am here to serve you master." 

"Alright, which one of you brain children, let her up here, and naked yet?"

There's not the tiniest snicker from anyone...I am not pleased. I avert my eyes as best I can and order this ...this...demon to follow me. Jaws drop and eyes quickly turn away as I march her to a replication unit to be scanned and fitted for some decent clothes. I had the items to her an the look on her face is nothing but confusion. What the hell is so confusing about getting dressed I wonder...and no sooner does that though form in my head when she blurts out.

"You wish me to cover myself master? Will that not make it more difficult to pleasure you?"

One lone gafaw escapes a lieutenant's and without even looking I place a bullet hole next to his head...he either stopped laughing or I killed him, I don't check to see which it is.

"Little...what are you?"

"I am your slave master."

" I mean...what species are you?"

"I am a Doajinn master."

"A say what now?"

"A Daojinn my master."

"Where are you from? Don't you want to go home?"

"Daojinn have no home we are bound servants, our whole lives are spent in service to others."

"Get outta here, you're kidding right? No you're not kidding...that's not how my life works, and I'll bet the Black Mantis knew all along."

"When you signed your reciept you agreed to take me on as your servant."

"Yes but you're free now."

The thing shrieks like a wailing Banshee I'm certain she could crack glass with her voice. 

"Alright, alright, alright, ENOUGH!!!"

as the sound dies and my hearing returns, and the bleeding eardrums stop...she starts crying...Black Mantis...I will repay this you sonofabitch.

"Alright kid that's enough shrieking you can be my...grrr...servant,. There are some rules though."

she smiles like a child, but I know better. As a demon she is quite possibly thousands of years old. I wonder how Moonshadow is going to take this? UGH I'm really beginning to hate my in laws.
One way to leave. by Spydraxis01
One way to leave.
I get a call from an old friend, like me he was trained by the Oni, but was not born Oni.  A Solaran by the name of Saito Nakamura. He is a high ranking member of the ninja clan that trained me.  I know why he wants to see me, it's because I broke ties, and now they want to let me know what the deal it now that I'm not part of the clan anymore...seems word of my fall form grace has gotten around. No doubt there's gonna be some payback for my threats...and vulgar display of power...but they don't know I am a Scion. Saito wants to meet on the planet Dagus 4 a hard hit world during the Millennium Wars abandoned by settlers after the Stakahn poisoned the entire planet's water making it uninhabitable. Saito asks me to meet him in and old shopping district away from prying eyes and in a place where he can basically ambush me.  Normally i would agree to meet in the open but I'm not frightened of mortals at this point and they have no idea of what I am now capable of. As I approach my scanners pick up no less than 17 additional life signatures besides me and Saito...yeah those numbers won't help them.

In the center of an old dilapidated shopping mall Saito mask, but armed to the teeth.  The mask is a sign of respect, it also shows that you're not afraid. Well that's nice but I'm not taking a bullet between the eyes for anyone. 

"Obsidian san Hajimemashite."

"Mae-govannen Saito"

"I believe you know why we are having this meeting."

"The clan wants to tell me to come back or else?"

"Something like that.  You know many of our secrets and as an outsider your actions are of special interest to the clan. They are concerned about your leaving and possibly bringing the clan great shame, embarrassment, and undue attention."

"Did you actually say the word 'embarrassment'? First of all I am highly skiled, and I have never let anyone know what clan trained me, and lastly I am NOT the guy who brought 17 men."

"Fair enough but you know, that honor must be satisfied? You were very disrespectful to our leader, and she didn't take it very well, she believes an act of apology is necessary."

"Did she mention at the time that I was a god? As such I simply put her in her place. Now I see though she wants to return the favor and put me in mine?"

"Again, something like that. She wishes you to perform and act of humility to demonstrate your loyalty to the clan." 

I reach into a compartment and pull out a note, carved in pure infinitium. At the top it has symbol, and for as far back as I can remember it has been a symbol of fear, no, terror for my clan. It wasn't until i was in the company of the one who this symbol belonged to that I understood why the symbol was something of such great dread. The symbol of the Black Mantis to those who know it is a thing of absolute fear...his power is legendary and his empire is known to but a few but to those few he is like a force of destruction unparalleled in the annals of anyone's history. The gods themselves fear him..and now as the look on Saito's face turns from serious to horrified, I explain what the situation really is.

"Take this to your Jonin, tell her, that as of this day I operate under this banner, and that as the betrothed of the eldest of the Black Mantis's house I am no longer bound by the decrees and loyalties of the clan. I will respect our clan's secrecy and I shall not bring any dishonor to the clan name.  However, if one of you idiots ever challenges me again, I will bring the full might of the Black Mantis clan down on your heads and destroy you to the last man. Is that understood?" As I ask I look to where each of my former brothers believes themselves to be hiding. Saito places his mask back on, and I nod giving them their leave.  For just a moment I thought I was going to have to nuke the place to make a statement, but Moonshadow's plan was better than mine.  I must remember to thank her properly when I get home..  
Obsidian Pair by Spydraxis01
Obsidian Pair
I wasn't comfortable with the dark skin at first, now that I have Moonshadow back in my life, I can live with it.  She has made me her Scion, and imbued me with great powers, I can still shadow slide, and I am basically invisible in shadows, once every 24 hours I can know the answer to any one question I ask. I'm also incredibly strong and fast and now I can use shadow magic. Ever been hit by a Darkning bolt? It's literally sucks the life right out of you.  Well we spent our first night together in a blurry whirlwind of passion and if there aren't a dozen offspring from the event I'd be stunned. First thing you have to know about gods is that they're very...fertile...though childbirth for deities can take nearly an form, in her case I try not to think that her divine form is a freaking half spider.  We crashed at her father's place, which is so vast I can park the Lillun inside and lose it.  Her Fathers place is a epic sized star ship 480 million miles wide by 24 million miles long and just as tall.  I'm certain if this thing were to enter a system it would throw off the orbits of several planets.  Inside of this massive ship are 3 Earth sized worlds held in place by massive gravity generators. I thought I was stunned by the Black Mantis's power until I was brought here...I never suspected. We're in a mountainous region on one of those worlds, and the view is spectacular, I begin my morning with some sword practice and after a few moments I can feel a pair of eyes staring my up and down like a choice cut of meat. and I smile because I know she's checking out my ass. 

"Mmm good morning, my champion."

She throws her arms around men and hugs me from behind, the sweat from my workout is glistening down my chest and my breathing is already heavy, and I'm pretty sure it's turning her on.

"Darling, I'm all sweaty."

She inhales in deeply, and bites down on my shoulder and we're off again.

So after my second workout I call the Lillun, while Moonshadow cooks breakfast.  There are really some things about this situation that are just off. Gods cooking breakfast and living in much the same way mortals do? It truly doesn't make sense.  In any case Harley answers and I decide there's no time like the present to get the Justiciar thing out of the way. 

Harley, I need you to contact Sathari prime and set up a meeting with you, me and Analaeus...

"Okay..." he says puzzled, "As soon as you tell me who the fuck you are."

Harley was never brought up to speed on my recent color adjustment.  

"He He, sorry Harley it's me Mic' Aehl, I had a little mishap with the whole God of intrigue thing and this happened.  of course Moonshadow is now back among the living and a second after i reverted back she redid this. Looks like I'm a dark elf from now on. That's part of what I wanted to meet with Analaeus, I can't continue as High Justiciar and I'm going to recommend that he appoint you, if you want the job?"

He looks bewildered at the onslaught of information and then asks

"Why are you stepping down?"

Here comes the part that I dread, because there's gonna be jokes.  Looooooooots of jokes.

"Moonshadow has made me her Scion."

"Is that another word for..."

"Don't say it dude. You can think it bro but doooon't say it."

"So does this mean that you work for Him now too?"

"No but I live in his house hahaha." 

"Okay bro, I'll set it up, in the meantime our comms are getting blown up by the clan asking about the wedding."

"Bah, I forgot all about that. Alright I'll com aboard and we'll set this up."

"How about a double wedding dear?" Moonshaow chimes in.

I'm only vaguely aware of the stupid look on my face as Harley bursts out laughing.

"Darling was that a bit too soon?  Would you like more time to think about it?"

"No uh-I-um I've never been on the receiving end of a proposal before I'm just a little surprised is all.  Can you marry your Scion?"

"As my Scion you have do as you're Mistress bids."

"Hmm as you wish my mistress, a double wedding it shall be."

I'm not sure about this but I do love her, and I know she loves I guess we're in for a penny, in for a pound. Still I'm who do we get to perform the ceremony?
As of today, I am removing my art from deviant art. Their value to protect our work from members who resell it for monetary gain without permission our compensation, has caused me to question why I would pay here. Nobody is supposed to be able to download my work even if they are a member yet it was fine so until they get their act together with some better security I will remove my work from this site. To all of my fans, you can reach me on my Facebook send a friend request and a message with the words "da fan" and I'll look it over.
Hey here's a poll and I'm only look for genuine input. In the latest adventures of Obsidian Mask the Demi-Godess and Obsidian's current love interest Moonshadow is murdered. She bestows her power upon Obsidian since her killer fled before he could lay claim to it. So what I'm asking help with is this: What was her sphere of influence? In other words, what was she goddess of? I have not as yet revealed this in my writing and I would everyone's input. What do you think she is the goddess of and why?

Quick question: what are your editorial requirements for contributions to science-fiction-cgi? 

If/when I make future contributions I don't want to waste your or my time if it is not going to fit your requirements...
Spydraxis01 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
We have a strict policy in our galleries, if an image does not belong (for instance a fantasy mage) we reject it, if an image is posted to the wrong gallery (A nude in "Original Characters") it is rejected. I personally have made several posts about gallery submissions and expect all members to have a basic working knowledge of how the galleries are set up.  Most importantly the art needs to not be of high quality I have allowed some mediocre pieces into our galleries because they were great concepts IMHO but overall the pieces should be aesthetically pleasing. Lastly (and I cannot stress this enough) it must be a sci-fi piece or part of a sci-fi universe. A dragon is perfectly acceptable so long as it is based in a sci-fi universe (see Galaxy5 gallery) those are the only exceptions. To define Sci-Fi we have used the following criteria: The piece should have something (any object) that gives it away, a ship, multiple suns, laser gun etc. that gives the nature of the piece away.  I have heart-wrenchingly rejected pieces that were simply fantastic all because they were not actual Science Fiction pieces. Contemporary pieces featuring actual NASA space scenes are NOT Sci-Fi they are science fact regardless of the context, put them next to a trek ship and you have something.  I hope this helps
SaltyCowdawg Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It does help, somewhat.  I guess I'm still new enough to DA that I can't figure how to post to particular galleries.  I do 99.9% science fiction images so I line up there, I guess I'll try again...
Spydraxis01 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
If you post to the wrong gallery and give me a heads up I can always fix it

Hey friend how did you get the sub-dragon morphs from dariofish to work on your DS4.6 which I have but only the poses, textures, and expressions work again how do I get the sub-dragon morphs to work.
Spydraxis01 Featured By Owner May 31, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
The morphs should be dialed in via the parameters tab or look for them under hellfish or animals in your Content Library.
