This afternoons artwork is a Star Trek themed trading card called Evasive Maneuvers:
With this illustration I wanted to add a sense of motion as the Klingon Bird of Prey banks to avoid the shots of the USS Defiant. To achieve this I simple tilted the two star ships at opposite angels to one-another, and then blurred the stars and planet in the background to correspond the to direction of the motion. Then by staggering the torpedo shots it hopefully gives the sense of a rapid motion as the Bird of Prey dodges the incoming fire.
