I'm not sure if these have been posted however they are out and they are quite wicked cool.

Amarr Battleship
Minmattar Battleship
Gallente Battleship
Caldari Battleship

These are off an Artists website who says he's done work on EVE, he has other sketches in the gallery of existing ships (Titans, carriers, fighters. They seem to be public domain so I see no harm in posting them, If CCP doesn't want these viewed yet you can lock this thread immedietly.

I see some things I find interesting, namely the Amarr one being so wide and stout (makes me think they are going to try and give the Amarr a versi bs like the phoon and domi), and hte Gallente one looking like a progression of the tristan-celestis school of Gall design... I like that. I also think that the minnie one will end up with sails like the tempest has in those locations, which will make it a sweet looking ride.

Hearty Thumbs up to the Eve Artists.

If those are final, then... wow! Shocked

I like the Amarr one the best, personally (but I like the Amarr ship look).

I don't know that I like the Gallente one. But I guess it sorta fits with the other fugly Gallente ships Smile (Well, 'cept the 'thron and 'rax)

I think the Gallente one is the one that most badly needs to be seen from another angle.

I could imagine it looking really cool or really lame depending on how they do one or two details.

I dislike the Gallente one too.. the organic look might work for Titans and motherships, but not on battleships.

Yeah, I see what you mean. if it is basically that shape swept about (ie. looking similar to that, having vague rotational symmetry), I think it will be ugly ugh

The way I THINK it looks is that the engines will be on a cloverleaf like protrusions, with the two engines in the front coming out noticably (theres something on the front that seems like an engine pod).

The guns seem to be on the very nose and tail. (the 4 points, which ostensibly would be on the other side as well).

The minmatar battleship doesnt look crappy enough.
Please crap it up, and add a completely ******ed bonus.

I kinda think the minmatar looks like a crossing of the Tempest (rear) and a huge Bellicose (front), but it still look pretty cool Very Happy

The gallente on the other hand ... it needs more work or maybe it is just that it needs to be seen from a different angel.

And the Amarr, well it might need to move one of its 8 turret slots to a different spot on the ship but WHAT a sweet looking ship!!

Wow Shocked, the Minnie ship looks like a spaceship instead of something that fell of a spacestation.

QFT.

I like the Minmatar design... but I'm a fan of the look of both the Typhoon, Tempest, Rifter, and Stabber. I really like how they look! I hate the Rupture's look though! Laughing

OMG Shocked CCP, please do not go through with that design for the tier 3 Gallente battleship!

Nine times out of ten the concept art for a ship or ships is far more badass than the final ship model.

Just look at the concept for "Amarr Fighter", which seems to be the Executioner.

That Amarr BS concept is stunning, though.

The Amarr looks wicked and all, but I don't see the advantage of exposing 60% of the structure Rolling Eyes

And the Minm is not shoddy enough.. use more ducktape!

Honestly though, that concept of the Amarr is making me want to train Amarr. I'm not kidding...Crying or Very sad

EDIT: But to be honest, 90-99 % of those concepts in the portfolio look 200x better than the final ship models.. LOOK AT THE CALDARI FIGHTER!! WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT!!!

Evil or Very MadWho the frac is CCP's new ships designer? Fire the frack, and get the old back!

Thees are all symmetrick, yor olde good genrick space ship designs.

My non existed 6 years old sister can do same after playing trought freespace 2.

I want Original, unsymetrick EVE ships!

Not this "seen it 2000 times" poo!

I hope the picture of the new Caldari Teir 3 is similar looking to the scorp but diffrent in that it has two more wings and the upper and lower fins are forward swooping.

I'd rather a more traditional looking movie BS. Something like the Pheonix, how it is long and bulky, not odd shaped and all. I want to actually like what I fly...

becuase its like from 80's space scifi?


i fell in love with eve design cause it had unsymetrick designs with most imaginary looks.

in almost all new ships, however, this is not so. They are all symmetrick.

Symmetry is more pleasing to the eye. And don't try and bring in realism (how symmetry is not needed in space due to no use of aerodynamics because of the lack of friction and all) because nothing in EVE is realistic.

Asymettric designs would require orders of magnitude more engineering spent to ensure that stresses remained constant.

That can be justified in some times and cases but by and large any sane society would try to have symmetry in thier spaceship designs to reduce the amount of expense (and not to mention wasted mass) of developing ships.

Just saw these earlier today, geez, links spread fast on irc.

They all look cool, admittedly, but I have a few things I'd like to say.. maybe the artist is reading.

Amarr - too little armor plating, especially in the front.. its also my opinion that the providence would make a better tier 3 battlship, and this could become a better freighter. But hey, providence looks like it could destroy a planet :|

Gallente - looks sort of like the Hyperion class destroyer from babylon 5, although its a common shape. I really dislike the turret placement if its going to be 4 at the front and 4 at the rear. Multiple smaller engines, like on the Thorax, give ships a bit more scale than these gigantic things. It also looks very smooth, but not sleek, and if its going to be the ultimate blaster battleship with those kinds of engines.. it should at least look menacing or built for speed.

Minmatar - very bellicose-like, also a bunch of smaller solar panels would give it better scale than a few huge ones.. kind of like vigil vs cyclone.
