Drakes End by TranquilRuins Drakes End by TranquilRuins
Finally finished this wallpaper off to, what I hope, is an acceptable degree.

This is a Caldari Drake battlecruiser, from the EVE Online game, wrecked.. which I know how that feels personally a few times :/
I started the wallpaper with 3d (untextured) objects, did a render then painted the planet and sky .. and then the larger portion of the Drake. The wreck in the background was used from a screenshot in game and edited to look blown to bits :).. wanted to do that from scratch but time does not permit. Also the corpse is from a render and just darkened a bit due to the scene lighting.

I'm created it while looking at a LCD 19inch screen .. which I'm still a little ify about since the lighting changes depending on a what height you look at the screen.. so a bit of playing around to get it right. I hope.

Hey mate, I love this picture and it is perfect for a fan fiction article I've just published on an EVE Online fansite I run. I hope you don't mind us using it. [link]

One word. STUNNING. This takes me miles back to the chapter of a vicious space battle's aftermath I depicted in one of my sci fi books. EPIC work.

Thankyou :) I've lost heaps of Drakes in my relatively short time on EVE, the first loss was the harsh, but gets easier lol. Can't imagine what I'd feel losing a carrier :)

I wish wrecks would actually show like this in Eve :)

Aye! I think CCP are supposed to make wreck versions for ships next expansion.. unless I heard that wrong. Looking forward to it if it is true :) (If you have ever played Homeworld 2.. thats they way ships should go blow up - slowly like a huge ship sinking in the sea).

Hmm, could be true... :)
Personally, I can hardly wait for Ambulation to be released.

I've been meaning to buy HW2, but haven't found it yet.
I did see some screens of an Eve mod for it though, which seemed pretty cool, but it never got finished apparently.
Nothing compares to Eve anyway ;)

Some new ship designs would go down well (for me at least), and I'm super keen for Ambulation as well =) BRING IT ON

Thanks :) I'm starting to think maybe I should have made two wallpapers ready, released one, then the other soon after. (Prehaps I should make one wreck/blowup wallpaper for each race at least).

That'd be a great idea. Or perhaps two versions with one being two (or more) ships mid-battle and the other being the aftermath.

Nice...try replicating the Amarr-Minmatar battle shown in the Empyrean Age trailer in which the Abaddon used some sort of weapon to neutralize the entire Minmatar fleet...that would be so cool...:worship:

I'm getting a few requests so I'll have to make a numbered list up with choices and then roll some dice :) or pick one.

Amarr-Minmatar battle, empyrean age trailer - on list ;)

HOW DID YOU PAINT IT?
HOW DID YOU DO IT??????

Thanks :) Just digitally painted, though used a template of some of the EVE models (untextured) and a sphere for the planet. Didn't want to spend time sketching it out.. but that also creates other issues, hopefully next time I do a wallpaper I'll do it entirely from scratch.
