Six powerful engines. Each engine has two propeller shafts, driving two sets of four-bladed counter-rotating propellers. The propellers have slight paddles or blades at the ends, giving a little extra thrust. This design is based on a "blended wing" design being explored with some success today. Computer control eliminates the need for tail fins.
On a distant world where the Fae lived, they could fly anywhere they wanted to. The females had the wings, the males did not. The male fae were trained to defend the kingdom and soon became a force not to be trifled with. When you have "faery" attached to your name, you fight a little harder to be taken seriously.
From a story I have.
Over time, through disease and other changes, the faery's lost their wings and became land-bound. Not to be held down, they invented many amazing if not unusual ways to get around. Some are like this aircraft, which they quickly developed. Not advanced for jet power yet, but they are working on it.
This didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. A series of problems, both health and personal took away my creativity, so for nearly two years, I didn't do anything creative. I came to a point where I had to get out of this, as the problems continue.
Changes made: Redrawn on watercolor paper. Acrylic paint for the sky and clouds. Airplane was colored with ink and markers, sweetened up the colors a little, then some Photoshop lens flares added.
