Spaceships

Astero Signature Wallpaper

I've been taking a slight break from the insane pace of the past month or two. Both from this blog, in-game and from illustrating spaceships. As you probably already know, I set myself a crazy goal a few months back and decided I'd illustrate every major ship hull in Eve. That Album of 130+ images can be seen here.

Needless to say, I needed a break.

After Christmas I'm going to get back to finishing what I started. The series isn't dead, it was just time to call time-out and catch my breath. Not to mention the fact that CCP keeps adding more and more new ships and new designs to the game. Which doesn't even begin to mention the new PBR of those ships. A normal person might go insane.

Ok I am insane. But in a good way. And part of that insanity is the honest fact that I just can't stop. So I had another idea. The Astero print above is the first example of what I am calling the Signature Series. Don't get me wrong, I love the "Art Print" style of the Poster Series, but there are other styles I'd also like to explore. This is just one of those.

In my opinion, the spaceships of Eve are simply amazing works of art on their own merits. Not to mention the fact that they represent so much of us, what we do, how we do it, and the thousands of hours we spend inside of them writing the histories of our own unique characters. I am endlessly fascinated by them.

This blog will get back to normal here shortly. And I'll keep plugging away at things the best I can. This month has been challenging with new opportunities almost daily in real life, the Holidays, travel, and the normal insanity of day-to-day life.

Keep the courage my friends.
