Finally, my entry to the EVE Online competition is submitted (at last minute as always!).
My starship, named Daedalus, was based off of the Merlin class frigate (for those of you that are familiar with EVE) and was an attempt follow the design sensibilities already found throughout the Caldari Navy. On top of this I attempted to give it an iconic design, something that would fit its title as a navy flagship.
I'll include the written description from the piece here (due to its small font on the actual work):
Originally conceived as a flagship vessel, the Daedalus was intended to lead auxiliary attack groups against the numerous Gurista incursions along the Eastern Rim; its imposing and recognisable visage intended to intimidate the comparatively smaller pirate navy. After a large number of successful engagements, the Daedalus-class battlecruiser, having proved its worth, was transferred to the much larger primary fleets, filling a fast-attack turret based offense role.
By YC106 however, the Daedalus had fallen out of use, in part due to the surge in production of the Ferox and Drake class battlecruisers. Their upgraded missile systems and tank-based role in battle, by this point, were favoured over the offensively capable but defensively weak Daedalus. In time it was almost completely absent from the Caldari Navy, with the few remaining vessels left fulfilling political roles as private, diplomatic transports.
After the Gurista involvement with the Innovaatio Varustukset Corporation in YC109 and the resulting kidnapping of one of the coporation scientists, it was recognised that Nugoeihuvi's Internal Security division were deploying a number of Daedalus-class vessels in their search for the missing scientist and his pirate captors.
Recognised by the Caldari Navy for its high-risk, high reward combat effectiveness, this security operation signalled the return of the Daedalus to active fleet status.
The ship was designed in Google Sketchup, given a simple lighting render and then textured in Photoshop. All space work and graphics were also designed in Photoshop.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my entry and good luck to all who entered.
I wanted to look at this contest from a different point of view and try to again add more narrative to the my artwork. This piece is a reflection of what the future could hold, not just for yourself but for your children and how time can pass much faster for smokers. The child in the picture is me as is the base for the dying reflection, but the child could so easily be seen as my son and this is the reflection of a fathers fear for the future. Pleas let me know your thoughts.
I want her on action! I haven't play the game but i have a clear vision of Lara Croft. It's been 3 weeks since i started to do this and I've made a lot of revisions for my self so it takes to long to finish.
My entry for the Tom Raider Reborn Contest I didn't want to portrait Lara Croft as the main subject. After all this is a game beyond the main character, it's also about experiencing the world you are thrown into. I know this is not an accurate depiction of the game itself but everything was created with a certain motif. Even if you never set up a camp o climb that high, they are all elements to reflect gameplay and the overall experience. Anyway, let's see how this turns out, some entries are insane and full of win.
