Flying Imp, Elven Spelljammer by juanosarg Flying Imp, Elven Spelljammer by juanosarg
This is the finished Flying Imp spelljammer ship. I never liked the original elven spelljammer ship designs: [link] Too insectoid for my tastes. The last thing those ship represented, in my opinion, is the delicate and stilized nature of elves. Okay, maybe I prefer Tolkien's elves to D&D elves :)

Sooo, I decided to make my own. The Flying Imp was drawn with pencil, then outlined with black ink, scanned and painted in Photoshop. The background is a cutout to try to make it similar to the other spelljammer ship I have here. Trying to give it that videogame sprite feeling!

Fantasy spaceships. I was amazed when I first heard of Spelljammers years ago; now THAT is something very original.

Tolkien's elves are kinda... well, they are more like powerfull feys than elves. Eladrins in current D&D.

If this were a game, I would buy it.

I can see how the narrow waists and bulbous ending might give the insectoid impression, but if you pay attention to the veined green sails and how they connect it shows that the theme of old elven 'jammers was one of branches & leaves actually.

That said your own 'jammer is indeed a very beautiful one.

Actually, I must say I don't like the truly original Man-O-Wars either :))))

Not elven enough!!

Very nice!

BTW: The design you cited as the "original" elven design, is the rebooted elven design from the Shadows of the Spider Moon adaptation of Spelljammer. You are not the only person I've met who has been slightly disappointed by those.

The original ships look more like butterflies. Here are some of Silverblade's elven ships: [link]

I really like the look of this ship. The white hull is a nice touch and gives it a definite Elven flavor.
