The EVE Backstory

Description

In all honesty, this is all you need to understand about EVE Online's story to enjoy the game.
For those of you who know little of EVE... you think I'm kidding? Nope.
Caldari: [link]
Gallente: [link]
Amarr: [link]
Minmatar: [link]
Disclaimers:
-Exactly one ship was traced (guess which, I dare you!). The others were sketched freehand based on publicly available images provided (in some cases) by CCP Games itself.
-The Heron, Ferox, Catalyst, Tristen, Brutix, Harbinger, Prophecy, Tempest (Navy Issue) and Rifter designs are all © CCP Games, which I am in no way affiliated with.
-The Caldari figure was inspired by the official Caldari artwork ([link]).
-The Gallente figure was inspired by my own avatar (though it was done from memory, so it's probably a little off).
-The Amarr and Minmatar figures are original.
-The Caldari, Gallente, Amarr and Minmatar symbols are © CCP Games.
-The original quote (which I changed slightly) was from a comment on an EVE-related YouTube video. For the life of me, I can't find it, so I can't give the user's name. If you find it though, let me know; his quote was the highest-rated comment on the video.

EDIT: Thank you, :iconjcdutt:. The YouTuber in question was Helge129, posting on the Empyrean Age trailer ([link]).

I wasn't paying attention to exactly how much time I spent on this. However, in terms of completion time, it deserves at least second place for being longest (the first being my 3-part Thunder Bay thing). It is also easily my most complicated colored work to date, and required no less than 16 layers in Manga Studio Debut 4. Your criticisms are welcome. Very welcome indeed.

(P.S. Feel free to insert your own Minmatar jokes here.)

P.P.S. I dedicate this piece to all my friends and corp-mates in EVE. Long live the Old American Syndicate!

P.P.P.S. A big shout-out to CCP, who featured this on the EVE facebook page! Thank you so much. :D

P.P.P.P.S. 10,000 views! Thanks for the support, everyone. ^_^
