Feel free to link directly to the entry you are commenting on. And please remember: we're not here to tear each other up. Do not troll your fellow Captains, give feedback! Let the others know what you liked and disliked. Maybe they can take this feedback into consideration for the next challenge!

Let's get those creative juices flowing! :cool:

Great contest idea! I'll grab some screenshots tomorrow.

Do screenshots even count as original work? You arranged it, sure, but every resource is actually something Cryptic made.

I personally find pure screenshots not to count for much. But the rule itself I take to mean to not use other people's work in the sense of other people's screenshots or resources from outside the game that you didn't create.

I do a fair bit of manipulation using multiple screenshots and some effects to make the images look "Better" than the game allows.

I like the double nacelles on that Excelsior (post #14).


Live long and prosper.

I'm a little sad to see that most of the entries are screen shots as well. Granted that yes, Photographs CAN be art, but being an art challenge it doesn't seem that challenging to just hit print screen a few hundred times then grab the right one. Granted any thing i draw looks horrible, but you know what? At least i did it by hand (and again, i shows because holy crap i'm terrible lol)

Hello and welcome to another edition of our Fan Art challenges! :cool: Since this is only the second one, please make sure to read the rules below. Also, feel free to post feedback about the rules/ challenge in the discussion thread linked below, as well as themes that you would like to see in the future.

Today we start the four-week run of the second Fan Art Challenge: Ships
Create Fan Art that shows off and depicts one of your in-game ships of either faction, or one from each. Feel free to choose the setting (e.g. docked, in combat, in orbit, at warp, under construction etc.) you would like.

Thats why i changed my entry. My previously post was a design study of a Federation ship. I changed it because of what pwebranflakes wrote.


Live long and prosper.
