Well as they say, art thrives on limitations.

...with a fleet of cloaked Klingon Birds of Prey on approach, barely given away by optical distortion, the displacement of nebular gas, and the faintest bit of engine glow. I'm talking not even noticeable at first glance. How many are there? You may never find them all! Should make for a months worth of fun

Isn't that the same ship design you entered in the Star Trek Online Enterprise-F contest a few years ago?

If I remember the rules of that contest, it said that once you submitted your entries, you lose all rights to that design to CBS. So if you're entering the same design, aren't you in violation of that contract?

The design can't have won a prior contest, and while I did win the unofficial fan vote, I didn't make it into the judge's top 25.

CBS obviously owns the rights to all designs seen on the show, yet those designs are still eligible for this contest, so I don't think it will be an issue.

If it is, meh. I never enter these things expecting to win. (Though I managed to place 7th in the Star Citizen reality TV show and Runner Up in the Eve Online CCP vote.) Worst case scenario I'll still have a nice new image in my portfolio:

Nearing completion, but I'm worried that it's starting to look like something you'd see painted on the side of a van. However, the judge's are looking for "Heart" above all else, so maybe that's fine.



Also thinking of adding a Klingon Bridge view screen, a bit like this:

-with a terminal in the corner showing the locations of all the birds of prey clearly.

[edit] Oh, yeah, not posting this ref image here because it breaks the format. Too big.
http://julalien.files.wordpress.com/...interior-9.jpg

Ended up not trying to do something like this. Instead working on a single bird of prey de-cloaking as it fires, to give away the rest. It's a tough balance between visible and invisible when presenting an image to the viewer for the first time.

How are the rest of you doing? Any brain storms or problems?

Re: 2016 Ships of the Line Calendar Contest?

I'm curious to see how this goes. Either my Google skillz are poor or there aren't a lot of folks talking about this. Does this mean a lot of people are doing rather than talking?

I'd love to, but don't want to risk it, having never learned why I didn't make it into the Design the Next Enterprise contest top 25 (also film festivals and The Next Great Starship contest reality TV format got me into the habit of waiting for them to premier my material before I got to share it.)

I'll post it after the contest closes if I don't make the lucky 13.

I'm curious too, but I'm certain there a quite a few talented contestants we'll never hear from. I can't wait to see what they produce!

Re: 2016 Ships of the Line Calendar Contest?

I submitted 4 things altogether. One was something I had lying around which doesn't stand a chance, 3 I actually tried hard on (the 3 I posted here). I just don't have the knack for a fifth in me at the moment, or rather I don't have any meshes with which to use to make a fifth. I'd love to do something with a Galaxy Class, but both of mine are either unfinished of crazy crazy low res.

You are pretty good at effects, You could try something like this from this distance with one of your low poly models:


I'm still poking at colors, but I'm about done with my cloaked birds of prey piece. No new ideas looming...

...but with only a few days left 'til the competition closes...

Just realized there would be a crease down the middle where the fold will be. Might have planned my layout differently...

Well, I managed to get a fifth out of me :P Just submitted it. Forgot I had my NX-01 Refit mesh just lying around. Feeling pretty good about that one too.

Nice! That's a fun one, as we never got to see her on screen.
