EVE_contest_doodles by David-Holland EVE_contest_doodles by David-Holland
Think i might enter the EVE design a spacey ship contest. Could be fun although i've never been into the EVE style. Amazing backgrounds though

Photoshop

my favourites are 19, 10, 21 in this order
23 is good too but it reminds me to some Homeworld ships

Try out a trial, its pretty nuts(by some standards not so fast paced as say wow (if u can call it fast paced)), and beautiful. 14 day free trial. and check out the market, u can seee ships in 360. makes sure its a 6 point sheet.

Yeah i tried it out a while back when i had nothing to play. It was ok i suppose but i felt it was overly complicated and the skill training was insane. I like in depth games but i don't have the time to invest in a game like that unfortunately, it's like a second job lol! I love the concept but i need it dumbing down a little :D

I agree, those two were my favourites, as well as the ones I think would integrate well with EVE.

nice stuff..but your suppose to do 6 views of a single ship lol
id go with 1, 3, 4, 8, 9 , 10, 20 or 21....got a good few caldari ships there, and the last could be a caldari/amarr hybrid type

David-Holland Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2010
Yes but these are just thumbnails before i start properly sketching out a few designs :) I think i was Proteus when i played the 12 day trial, they where kind of cool

ok two things

i really love these sketches and i never saw them from you (either that or i misse half you gallery)

second, you gotta give me soe pointer for this, up until now i managed some concepts of my own but it was using sketchbook pro which i think has some neat functionalities like symmetry
but its also nice to not rely on photoshop just for painting, my main issue there is nice straight lines without using shift (i can't do them on photoshop but i can on SB) maybe its the resolution
because i work on very small ones on sketchbook and huge ones up to 4k px on PS
Reply
:icondavid-holland:
David-Holland Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2010
Ummmm what do you mean? This is just a 2000 px canvas, so not very big and i just used a round brush with nothing applied like dynamics etc. I use shift for vertical and horizontal lines (the tools there so might as well use it) and to sketch any other angle i still use the ghosting technique.

:iconnightmaregk13:
NightmareGK13 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2010  Student Digital Artist
ah so nothing applied, maybe thats where i have my most issues
yeah i know the shift trick
but yeah its a low res canvas

ghosting technique?
you mean white layer lowered opacity on top?
Reply
:icondavid-holland:
David-Holland Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2010
Ghosting the line. It's simple but kind of hard to describe but i suppose it's a little like a golf swing. When a golfer swings they usually take a practice swing first right? So just apply that same principle to drawing a straight line. Put two dots on a piece of paper roughly an inch or 2 cm apart. Next using your elbow as a pivot point, not your wrist connect the two dots with a straight line. First practice the line by moving the pen between the two dots (ghosting) then when you feel you have it draw the line.

If you can get hold of any Feng Zhu or Scott robertson DVDs they go over it too

Have to say I thought of your art when I read about that contest. I think you could place well. :) Good luck!
My favourites are the one in the bottom row, third column, and the fifth row, last column. Actually, the whole of the fifth row is pretty awesome.
