Commissioned around 2007, this fanart was based on the 2002 Joss Whedon series "Firefly", set in space, in 2518.
Serenity, is a cargo ship. In this scene, the ship leaves a space station around a distant planet in the galaxy.
I later got a commission to do Rivertam, from the "Serenity" movie, but the art was never fully finished (I was not paid my second half). I'm not sure it will ever be done...
