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.

B5 and D4 are both really sick, I love the Idea of massive ships :) B5 looks like a cross between a town, a space station and an aircraft carrier which I really like, and D4 reminds me of a gigantic flagship which could lead an armada into battle. I also like E9 as another big ship and C2 as a fast fighter :) You could perhaps do with a few more sporty looking fighter style ships? Great work anyhow and I hope atleast some of these get included in the end product :)

F7 is my favourite out of these, with A3 and F9 close behind.
I like the symmetrical horizontally split ones as a rule.
I'm not really a fan of the ones like B1 or H3 as they seem to lack a sense of motion or direction, though it is nice to see ship designs that aren't trying to mimic planes or rockets!

very inspiring! Amazing creative output.

I like many of these (all of them if I look at them for too long; one can truly discover unique features in every single one), but my favorites so far would be I10, F1, G8, D9, H10. Notice that these are all very "ship"-ships, I guess I'm pretty boring that way.
Otherwise, I love the color sheme of F3 and the beehivishness of D9

I am rather partial to J3 and C6, B5 is rather interesting as well, and it seems you have a couple of side sketches for that one... might you explain what you were meaning for that to be? this is quite a nice variety to have derived from only four other illustrations, nicely done!
