Black and white sketches are fine. Your final renders can even be in black and white. When I say 'sketch', I mean something you would throw down on a napkin or scratch paper. i just want to see the design evolution of your ship and also to make sure you are the one doing it because all artists have their own 'style' it would be easy for someone like me to see what is yours and what is not.
Anyways..no worries, just send something in.
Keep in mind guys I will be starting a free forum just so we can post code images. That will be up tomorrow so don't send anything to that contest site link I provided.
Is the runabout considered a 2 person vessel? Does it have to have a narrow, slick cockpit meant for a at max 2 hour dogfight or can it also be meant to serve as a very short range patrol vessel? Anyone have any Console ideas yet? Since my initial scetch was a flying wing integrated body design, I was going to do a "Excess Particle Ejection Stream" Basically ejectiing a combination of space debri such as ice crystals bolstered by other exotic reflective debri found in warp at a flat, 2 dimmensional stroke. The reflective debri makes visual contact impossible, and greatly limits sensor penetration, and some exotic particles are known to leech energy when disturbed by impulse wakes.:smile:Overpowered? Is this for a personal craft or carrier? becuase I could see 20 of these trails being annoying:biggrin:!
