|A great skyship painting by Ben Wootten|
If you're anything like me, your first reaction may be, "That name sure sounds familiar." And you'd be right: Ben has done work for Weta on Lord of the Rings (check out his biography at IMDB), as well as for Paizo (Artwork by Ben Wootten at the Pathfinder Wiki) and Wizards of the Coast in the RPG industry. The chances are quite high that you have seen his work in one or more areas.

If we can make the $15,500 stretch goal, Ben will produce artwork depicting five skyships, including the Star Phoenix and one for each of the major Calidaran races (humans, elves, and dwarves).
Take a look at Ben's work, and imagine what he could do with these paintings. Let's make it happen!
