Noting a steady increase in unorthodox methods of salvage collection preferred by the more 'enterprising' capsuleers, Outer Ring Excavations dusted off blueprints for an old search and rescue vessel dating back to their first forays into outer ring. Instead of weapon hardpoints and associated data processing, a highly specialised electronics platform was developed to enable detection of manmade objects with poinpoint accuracy against the background noise of dense asteroid fields.
ORE has taken this design a step further in line with recent developments on other vessels, and added salvaging hardware similar to that found in the Noctis industrial.
ORE Industrial skill bonus: 5% increase to scan strength of probes and 5% increase in tractor beam and salvager cycle time per level

This is an acrylic painting I did that was quite big. It's horrible how I can never remember the exact sizes of my paintings anymore, but it's about a meter tall. Anyways reference pictures were used to get the correct body form which I'm not too proud of. But this was more of a practice painting anyways, just to improve my use of colors and realism.
This is another painting I started in the summer but finished about 2 months ago. Took me along time to get the right colors and proper body proportions. I might be posting up the making of this painting soon, so stay tuned
As a child, I had a lot of imaginary friends. But my imagination wasn't always something I could control, and it often created beasts which kept me up at night, and kept me from venturing into the basement, where most all of them lived. This particular creature (Closeup here) is the black hole monster. He didn't really have a name, but I called him that because when he opened his mouth wide enough, I could see a black, infinite space with a few twinkling lights, which would be either stars or the glistening teeth and eyes of billions of monsters. Being devoured by him would mean being sucked into another dimension where monsters dwelt everywhere and there were no humans and no sunlight; just a dark, vast nothingness filled with things that would eat you for all eternity.
I'm sure all that sounds like... a lot of things, but this monster also had slimy, tar-like tendrils that were more like veins or nerves and could reach around walls. Somewhat plant-like, it could only cling to walls and couldn't reach very far away from its source of stability. But if I got close enough to them, I could feel a sort of electricity coming off them, pulling me closer. If it connected with me, it would be able to paralyze me and drag me into the basement.
The monster could also change size drastically. The rare times I ventured into the basement at night, I could turn around and just see a wide, open mouth full of stained nasty teeth taking up the entire hallway. It could grow larger than my house, but being part of another dimension, it could traverse straight through it like a ghost. It could only see me... therefor I had no place to hide.
I spent a lot of time in my childhood being traumatized by my own brain. Anyhow, this is my entry to the MAMA Scared Stiff Contest.
