There seems to be a certain style inherent to most submissions. Though, it's inherent to most eve ships too :p

I've began to amass the best eve-fanship entries by my judgement into the groups #Eve-online and #eve online artist groups in an attempt to get them more exposure. It may also be the push these two groups need to get off the ground. please note it takes some time for submitted works to show up in the galleries and even the moderators may try to hide the pictures.

I heard some where that the Maelstrom was origanaly a fan made lego modal that was submitted to a forum thread here in like the first year or so of the game, as a dreadnought design back when CCP still hadn't released them.

Any truth to this? Guess it'd be hard to know that far back.

Thanks to the guy who submitted the winged banana, had me laughing all day.

As for my entry I thought it was kinda cool idea but I deactivated the DA account I made in embarrassment when I realised I was competing with bored areonautic engineers.

I thought all those supre high quality ones were great but they kinda spoiled it for the everyman eve player who could get the idea out there and have the excellent CCP medellers and artists finish the job perhaps but very unlikely.

My vote goes to CCP who have tacitly stamped their authority in an entertaining and upbeat way.

I'll type up my ideas in the apropriate forum.

Well i kinda know how you feel...my artistry work isn't much to write home about but i'm just hoping my idea behind the ship will boost the prospect of it being thought of; "Hey that's a cool idea, lets work on that one since we can improve on it's basics quite easily."
Just try and at the least get a special EvE present in any case :P

You're welcome :)

But since i lack the skills most of the artists that enter the competition I will probably only submit this, sketching the 6 view n thats it.

well Im off to bed you can have a sneak peek at my next ship though, im still material defining atm and I havent applied any filters for shadows or actual lighting other than I want currently to be emphasized. It is going to suck getting rust to work on this one.

Blunder

maybe for once i actually got the minmatar look right instead of knock off caldari.

you could try going for a little bit bolder in the deisgn other than chopping off the bottom of the nightmare off. Fourtuantely there are like 7 sansha ships and stations more than enough to conclude new designs out of those, go a bit out of your way if you have to.

what I find hilarious about the contest is that so many of the submissions very plainly come from people who've never played the game and don't think that such things as source material research or knowing the first damn thing about the game is important. in fact, a huge number of them are plainly stuff these guys did before the contest came aong which they decided to enter.

I mean, here are some things that can be considered typical of this trainwreck of a contest, (and of slightly slightly above-average quality)...
ships that claim to be of a given faction, but don't match their aesthetic at all,
entries that couldn't have taken more than fifteen minutes to slap together,
ships that don't match the design style of any known faction in the game,
ships that invent a whole new ship class,
ships that are blatantly from a completely different IP,
ships with names that are already taken,
entries that took an existing ship, imported it to 3DS Max, added some stuff then hit "turbosmooth",
entries that aren't even supposed to be at all related to EVE by the submitter's own admission,
an oriental bloke with his shirt off, and
whatever the hell this is supposed to be

the few genuinely good submissions are depressingly few and far between.

TL;DR - fail competition is fail.

well I've seen some contestants, when their failure to research the game is pointed out, respond with "nobody told me what they should look like".

which is serious grade-A bullcrap, tbh. And even if it wasn't, it's not like it's hard to use Google image search.

I think a fair amount of people are just digging up old designs they made years ago for the contest. That's definitely the case for the ones that are straight out of Star Wars or Star Trek, at least.

Made some changes again. Still a WiP but getting there, hoping it DOES fit into the EvE IP Razz

Wish i could do 3d though Crying or Very sad Could make this design come so much more alive if rendered.
