EVE online create a starship by Colin-Ashcroft EVE online create a starship by Colin-Ashcroft
Well I could not resist such a great competition. I had real limited time, although I managed to magic some from somewhere. I managed my time into some research, concepting and finally my finished design. I did not have enough time for a rendered view so I thought it more important to get the presented orthographic views finished rather than trying to rush a fully rendered extra view.

Anyway I'm off to view some of the other entries! Good luck to everyone who entered and thanks for viewing my work!

Hey cheers! Interceptor/stealth were the directions that appealed to me the most.

I noticed. I can imagine it sliding through space, sun gleaming off its hull and that would be the last thing you see.

I really love this design! I have seen quite a few recently, but this is definitely my choice - or it would be, if I were to pick one.

Of course I know that starship designs have massively changed during the recent years. Therefore it is very hard to get some designs going that fits anybody's likenesses. For me, there are mainly two factors that keep me away from EVE, even though I have it on Steam for quite some time now, and that is time and a lot of the designs. Your design, however, makes me want to wish for a lot more time, this ship already implemented, and, well, even more time. I want to fly this ship so bad... That wish is only beaten by the wish to look at it (since I'm really into looking on to beautiful designs, which is a reason why I don't like the formula 1 that much anymore) :D

Wow thanks Diavolus. Comments like yours are a real inspiration.

I was thinking maybe the fact I don't know anything about EVE online apart from the little research I was able to make during this art challenge would go against me. I spent most of my time on the design phase and didn't bother rushing a rendered view just to make it pretty.

Very intrigued to see what choice they make. I don't really expect to get anywhere, I love challenges like these to push myself as an artist,learn new things and be inspired by other people too!

The fact that you say you want to fly the ship so bad really nails the reason I wanted to enter this challenge. To design a ship that people think is cool and would want to fly. That's the point of the competition I suppose and also of creating art as a concept artist.

Thanks for your comment my friend!

You're very welcome :) I think comments with "Wow, I like it" or "Great job" are comments that head the imaginary trash can immediately, so I write just a few, but more detailed comments.

Yet I'm not quite sure what tied me to this ship, to be honest. I think it's the top view that reminds me on some kind of a futuristic/fantasy blade, showing some round (I'd almost say "organic") parts for protection, and the bottom view showing the technology within... Also, when I look at it from the right or left side, it looks like a very aerodynamic ship, making it a perfect interceptor for atmosphere battles as well...

And I'm sure, if you somehow manage to make a rendered wallpaper out of it, it'll make me drool on my keyboard anytime I see my desktop ;) Go for it :D

Haha, thanks again. Yes I really appreciate constructive comments. Yes, interceptor/stealth craft were the directions I looked into.

I have some other work to complete but I will be back with a rendered piece sometime soon!

Take care!
