Spaceship thumbnails by Hideyoshi Spaceship thumbnails by Hideyoshi
Trying something for the EVE Online contest...
here are some thumbnails!
Some are really crappy and I am not sure if I like one enough to carry it further yet...
Any favourites?

assign them some names and classes ^^ (i.e. #16 could be the Jackal, assault frigate)

11, 16, 20, 18 if you add a deflector dish to it so you can realign that mother.

I-I thought it kind of looked like some sort of "skimmer", it also reminded me of F-Zero for some reason.

mm I agree with you i don't think any of these are particularly strong enough. I think they are all a bit too amorphous even for EVE. people probably go for 4 (and I would too) because it appears to have the most solid design.

I'd say bash out some more shapes :}.

If I had to pick from this sheet, I think I'd say 4 or 16.

i see thanks! The design will be worked out more thoroughly later anyway, these are for general silhouette mostly!

I.. I was about to write that..

That's so spooky.

I went with Thunder instead, it's more universal.

Yeah. It's overall shape is very aesthetically pleasing, plus it looks most like a legit spacecraft. :'B

i really like 12 and 8, but maybe that is because im identifying known eve factions in them - that said, there are lots of ships that belong to fringe pirate groups that don't adhere to any visual language.

I like number 6 and number 20. 6 kind of reminds me of a sword.

I'd fly any of them, but 8, 13, and 14 stand out to me. 8 would make a good Minmatar or Caldari frig, while 13 or 14 would fit well in the Gallente fleet, probably as cruisers or some sort of mid-weight ship? In any case, the front-heavy designs like 3 and 4 are pretty cool, you don't see many of those I think.

Anyways, these are awesome thumbnails! :D

5: Would make for an excellent larger ship; not quite largest class, but second from it

6: Great design for a fighter

11: Would make a good first-timers cargo ship

16: Killer larger battleship design

4 gets an honorable mention as a cargo ship; the nose has all kinds of uses. Maybe to house a huge antenna array?

Those are my faves.
