nem, tô falando de fazer o background em 2d mesmo, no photochupa. Tô sem tempo pra aprender outra coisa. A única caoisa q de vez em nunca mexo é o Google Sketchup, que ajuda fazer alguns esboços em 3d pra ajudar em perspectiva, e tal
Great ship, should mention some more though like Fighter? Could also mention what it's power grid and everything would be and what slots it would have. Since you haven't played EVE it would be kind of hard to do that. If you want I can show you my ship on EVE which could give you some idea as to what you could add to this? Note me for the link.
I agree with the rest, the Render is totally awesome! Great shape and line , love the color. As for EVE, i have no experince to know much about it but I could totally picture something like that in this contest wining. Good luck man
