So, here's my second new SvB Artwork:
Here you can see Karylla Noir aka Blackfire and Ryko Maiell aka Infinity.
Karylla is repairing some part of her spaceship "Lightning", and Ryko prefers just to watch her as he tends to be somewhat lazy most of the time. (And why should he work when Karylla is doing it?)
Ryko is an enigma as he doesn't look like he belongs to any of the peoples of the FGS (Free Galactic Star Republic) and his abilities are legendary - he is far stronger than he looks like and practically no computer system is safe from him. Moreover, he seems to speak about any language known in the FGS, and his knowledge about trivia of any kind is unfathomable.
Especially Stardust is permanently infuriated about the fact that Ryko seems to be perfect in almost everything, and whenever they bump into each other, she starts verbal fights with him that lead to them being so preoccupied with their bickering that it is left to Blackfire and/or Stardust's "partner" CASS or Alayn to actually get things done.

While I was at it, I turned the pictures into proper cover artwork for the stories:
On this image you can see Karylla Noir aka Blackfire and Ryko Maiell aka Infinity at the command center of Nightfall Station, their headquarters which is located in the asteroid belt between the 7th and 8th planet of the Suune system.
BTW, if you go to the dA page and click "Download" there, you can better see the details, especially the black on dark-coloured stuff.
By the way, here you can see the difference between the old artworks and the new ones:
Here you can see Karylla Noir aka Blackfire and Ryko Maiell aka Infinity again somewhere in Nightfall Station. By the way, the floor and walls are slightly luminescent, so there are no shadows.
