100 Ships. by Rodrigo-Vega 100 Ships. by Rodrigo-Vega
Mass Sketch Dump for the upcoming MMORTS game Novus AEterno by Taitále Studios.
This one has kind of a funny story. We were talking about ship design and just about every member of the studio with any hand at 2D art had a chance at designing some human ships trying to find just the best designs we could use, the ones that work better with textures, etc.
So Daniel Cortés, whos been our character designer and multi-purpose 2D guy extraordinaire, came up with a style that pleased us all and seems to work well well when imported to the game. But you know I´m kind of a ... perfectionist and wasn't all that in love with the shapes of the ships themselves. So the first.. 3 or so in the A line -are his ships © -, and then by quickly butchering those and another large one he made (not pictured) I resolved to make 100 ships in one go to see if together, we could pick -something- from within all this. It took me a few hours split in two days, the first 70 were done in one sit.
It might happen that none of this are used in game anyway, but I thought it was a nice anecdotal picture, and with some feedback, from you the viewers, we might make better designs to please the players in the future.
So what do you think? Do you like any ship in particular?

B2, D1, D10, and E1 are all good looking ships.

I think it's interesting that there are so many ways to design a ship.  D10 seems interesting but they have their own unique design to them.

Amazing you did these all in just a few hours.

Mostly in one day though, it was too late to stay though and decided to leave the remaining ones for the next day.
