Rules are simple. Turn this shape into a ship! A complete "fleshing out" of the design is NOT necessary, but it "may" increase the win chance. This is primarily an art contest, with a 500 flux prize being provided by TheSupreme!

The winning design will become either a new contest to flesh out the identity of the ship, or it will go straight to the suggestions forum. Depends on my mood (and the size of my next paycheck lol).

oh, and some extra inspiration: when i created this shape, i thought that the inner 2 holes would make for some nice power generators via fusion of lighter elements. (think tokamak). Note: the preceeding sentence was OPTIONAL inspiration.

Each person is limited to 100 submissions. (Extra points for actually making 100 good posts in this thread :shock:)


Example section, aka NOT PART OF THE CONTEST:
Props to Nightsky for doing a great job on this sprite!

Great idea! Are we allowed more than one submission?

The front is down btw

Real ship is much smaller, just made this to be similar to the size of your sprite.

All three are merely made out of portions of the whole design layout that was given. The bottom one was made out of choice segments and rearranged to make the design I had in mind possible. Honestly, I'm not entirely sure about the middle one... But the symbols are supposed to be scarabs (from in-game), the big brown things are supposed to be armored "shields" to protect the large cannon array in the front... That's pretty much all there is for selling points... The others should be pretty easy to figure out.

Many a day, I go through mental debates:
Is there any exception to the 3-Ates?
"Tolerate, Compensate, Mediate."
Alas there is none, they are so great.
Perhaps you can try, but only your best.
For every time, these shall pass the test.

well the original intent was for you guys to use the whole sprite as inspiration. BUT, if you can wow me with only part of it, more power to you. Just know you may or may not be starting with a handicap.

Well, i gave a sprite, make a ship. That's all I said. How you interpret it is up to you, but keep in mind that I'm the one who's judging it, and I gave you a perfectly nice sprite.

Oh just make a ship already :lol:

How long does this last until? I'm guessing the end of the year, seeing as you're allowing so many submissions...

It ends when the interest in adding new submissions ends. (Obviously sooner than the year 2020).

I'm not even sure we have enough entries to even call it a proper contest. I'll see if i can drive more people here somehow.
