EVE Online: Create a Starship Contest on deviantART

Starships are the shield, sword and signature for the pilots of EVE. They are created both to tear down entire empires and to gather and transport the resources needed to build anew. What new machine will you bring to the warfront?

Design a starship and enter it into the EVE Online Create A Starship Contest for a chance to have your dream ship become a reality. The 1st Place winner will have their ship added to the premiere space MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game), EVE Online where countless pilots will build and fly the winners’ creation.

Objective

Entries must depict a starship suitable for integration into EVE Online (Examples: image, video);

The depiction in the work must be of a starship which, if it were in use in the game’s universe, would have an equivalent size of 50 meters to 1000 meters in length proportioned to the human form.

You will need to provide six (6) views of their entry (all in the same image) – left, right, front, back, top and bottom. The six views are to provide accurate views of details, measurements, and shapes. The six views should be clean, uncolored line drawings /renderings. If you’d like, you can include a fully rendered view (a seventh view) of the starship in the entry as well.

Your work will be judged on the basis of originality, creative presentation of the task, and technical artistic skill.
