On going challenge: Challenge 4 - Infinity Short Story
I miss the good old days when we were making contributions for Infinity. I had so much fun designing spaceships. The process itself was the best part, although there was also the hope that eventually your ship might find it’s way to the final game (at least some iteration of it). I especially enjoyed the art challenges and all the cool designs they produced.
The purpose of this thread is to take us back to those days by re-introducing these art challenges! Although the challenges will be purely for fan art this time since I-Novae isn’t accepting contributions anymore. But we can still design for the Infinity universe. The latest version of the faction guidelines can be the the rough guideline for the designs made in these competitions:
If you want to follow the past guidelines for different ship types, here’s the old modeling chart.
The winner of each competition will be decided with a vote. The name of the winner will then be added to a list that I will add to the 2nd post of this thread.
Everyone can suggest art challenges. Just wait before the previous one has ended to keep the contestants focused.
We can have all kinds of competition categories. For example:
Epic art or just plain old simple schematic drawings. Hand drawn or painted with Photoshop. Anything goes!
Both textured and non textured.
Why not have teams with concept artists and modelers!
Based on the original lore perhaps or something involving the Corporations?
Why not? We used to have some excellent composers here and I miss their work.
In case you want to design something completely different.
This community is full of creative power and it has been somewhat dormant ever since the contribution system was scrapped (apart from those who work in the dev team). Perhaps these challenges can give this community back it’s artistic activity that once made it such a vibrant place of constant eye candy. Let’s bring it back
(NOTE: This thread is for community driven art challenges and competitions. Not for showing off any particular art outside the competitions. Check out the Infinity Fan Art/Developer Inspiration thread and the Infinity Fan Art thread for that.)
