Megalodon-Battleship by Akiman Megalodon-Battleship by Akiman
Hello;

Here's my entry for the eve-online contest. It's a gallente battleship. I wanted her to carry the feeling of gallente ship designs while i was trying to make an original and nice looking ship.

The concept was a flashy imagination in the first moment so i knew what direction i was supposed to go and i knew i wanted to design a ship gives a bit of feeling between brutix and megathron. I made it look like a classy car feeling because gallente's are classy :) and i wanted to make it a bit deformed then at that moment i thought 'this actually looks like a shark'.

A space shark diving into the dark waters for searching her prey. Hell yeah i said to myself. Kind of reminded me my pvp days :). So i modified it a little. Megadolon* was the name to give. Still had issues with it since gallente ship names are taken from the greek myth and as a short name "mega" wont do...hehe. But the name supports the silhouette.

I've played eve for a couple of years so yes i was gallente and i can say i really enjoyed with her and the contest itself Because there's a chance to get in on that ship in eve. I guess thats what we call it 'priceless'.

Except the beauty shot all six orthogonal views are done with my hands which was very exhausting XD.

I've made a proxy model to see if my orthogonal views are in proper shape. Then i used that proxy model as a referance to fix any possible distortions in the perspective view.

Oh and ive used photoshop,tablet and maya.

...and ENJOY!


* for who doesnt know megadolon was the biggest shark ever swimmed in the seas in the known history.

Played eve for a stupid amount of time. was around during this contest and if I'm honest I didn't see all of the entries. I no longer play eve due to lack of time and the fact that I think ccp have some work to do to keep people long term interested now....however, looking at THIS image brings back a lot of memories and tempts me. Truly an amazing design and a great final render. You definitely captured the galentte style. Very nice work!

Megalodon is Ancient Greek for "big tooth". It's a shame Gallente ships don't look more like this, instead of the Cthulu-esque Eldritch abomination nightmare fuel they are now.

This thing is really nice. Definitely fits the Gallente design philosophy. This is a ship I would have liked to see in the EVE universe.
