Hello capsuleers,

Im posting here since the OOP section got no response, so this is a last ditch hope that maybe, just maybe, someone might take interest.

Do we have any art and illustration enthusiasts out here ?

Ideally with potential ingame isk to invest and get rl engraved/printed copies with, if you happen to enjoy it.

PM if interested and here's what one of my works looks like:

I am doing this because time is short, life is short, and I want to be able to keep playing Eve and just do the pvp game, and then have the time to focus on my art/work/family in rl...

No other video games i find fulfilling as much, but the isk-making part takes me way over the time and money that I can realistically apply to this.

So, I would really appreciate the support, if you can, and you get to own some original artworks in return. Thank you.

Verlyn (ie the real person) makes his own art/world...

This is more of a call to support my own original art as shown in the OP, and not really a call to take on commissioned works.

I am still curious though, and may ask what you would have in mind ?

Well...maybe CCP doesn't sell these sorts of things because they just don't sell...But I would imagine in a game full of spaceships that a few artistic renderings of spaceships would be valued by the community.

I already own the 4-pack of battlecruiser prints, framed on my gaming wall. I also have the canvas print in a rather large size of the starship captains swapping stories while lounging in a station. My wife hates them....but I buy them anyway.

Sadly these are all done by freelance guys, and CCP just keeps trying to push $50 shirts with little pirate faction logos that mean nothing without a more than passing knowledge of the game. If only they'd sell something that looked good already, and added value if you happened to know eve.

I'm thinking about getting that giant damned naglfar wall cling....but I don't think thats what my wife wants on the giant wall above the fireplace. That 16 foot wall is just begging to have a giant nag on it though....

Well I could work something out, how do landscape compositions with a few spaceship-like shapes and people thrown here and there sound like ?

Not necessarily Eve based, but Sci-Fi ?

Something along this theme, sci-fi deserts, forgotten planets, but black and white, and darker tones:

Also, how much isk would you be willing to pay per print copy ?
