This is the 2014 version of The Ships of EVE Online Poster
poster I started in 2010, created using the new ships database tool I built as a WordPress plugin.Background
As is apparent if you compare the two posters, the game's graphics have evolved quite a bit since then. Many ships have been redone, and new shaders are being used for many of them. The biggest change though is the fact that the ships now get colored backgrounds matching their race's dominant space coloration (in the ships preview window). This version includes all 418 ships available in the game at the time of writing (for the Phoebe release), including those that can only be flown by game developers.
Note: The number of ships has increased a lot, but that's mainly due to the fact that ship skin variants of the same ship are considered to be separate ships.

The process has changed a bit because I have better tools now to help, but the core is still the same: I take every ship screenshot by hand, and crop each by hand as well. For the WordPress plugin I have front and side views, which means that's a total of 836 screenshots. All 2014 posters
