Well here it is, my final entry

Tried hard to stick to the Minmitar style, building off of the T3 stylings to battlecruiser size

Also studied CCPs concept presentation, guess this is for modelling so should be a clean representation

Modelled in Max, plain grey model. Rendered then paintover in PS using various techniques ( aircraft part photos, textures and digital painting ). Time taken to properly trace over ortho views in PS usign varying line thicknesses

Hope you like it. Have a look in full size, there's a wee bit of detail in the paint

look like something that would come from a crossbreeding of The Matrix and FF7.

This is the winner to me. Brilliant concept, excellent execution. You prob would have won if you'd draped it in EVE imagery and given it visual context - that always sells.
Hell, the filled-in side view actually looks like a wave and it's aftermath. It may look too much like a praying mantis for CCP.... maybe. That's the only thing I can think of.

Tornado was good, but this was better as a concept.

Agreed. This was the most original of the 3 finalists. Quite a risky design well executed. Well done.

This is a strangely attractive Minmitar style. It's attractive and clean, but at the same time, savage. You can really see it in the solar panel design that juts ahead of the ship. On the flipside, this baby looks brittle. The fore solar panels and arms look like they could break away if they were smashed by an asteroid, mass driver shot or even another ship.

Congratulations on your third place finish!
