Create a starship for EVE Online

Arty types, listen up. If you’ve got some smashing concept art skills, EVE Online developers CCP want to hear from you.

In conjunction with DeviantArt, the EVE Online Create A Starship Contest has just kicked off – giving visual creatives the opportunity to, well, create a starship to feature in the MMO.

What you create is up to you – it might be a thing of beauty, it might be a terrifying structure – but you need to put (virtual) pen to (virtual) paper and get sketching. The developers need all six orthogonal views for your design to qualify: that is, left, right, front, back, top and bottom – all of them in colour-less line drawings. If you’d like to include a seventh view – a fully rendered, textured creation – you’re more than welcome.

Want some inspiration?
