Back to some digital art after quite a while. This is vaguely inspired by the MMPG EVE online, as I always picture the ships' captains to be something enshrouded by mysticism and a somehow religious authority. They are the sole governors of immense ships manned by adequately huge crews who only rarely would see their captain; and also, they're semi-permanently wired to the ship's systems. I guess that would turn them into something akin to gods to the eyes of superstitious space sailors.
And of course, there's always a wink towards Frank Herbert's Dune and the novel's Guild Navigators (hence the title).
Hope you like.
