Hello everyone. :woohoo:

Phoenix Dream RPG game development team has decided to make a contest.
This contest is to design "Argo" a land-sea dreadnought for our new and first game "Faded Haven".  

The ship is a fantasy-technology(steampunk if you wish) land-sea dreadnought, something in this style: images.wikia.com/aselia/images… , industrial-forest.deviantart.c… It goes over both water and land by using a magnetic or some other kind of energy output at the bottom of the ship to keep it slightly above the surface. It is basically in white color with silver decorations and it's rather huge. I leave details to you and you can do also some major changes in the ship's design if you wish. If you need any more information or have any questions ask.

Rules:
1. You may enter as many times as you want but each entry must be significantly different. So, don't submit a new entry if all you did was change a gun or move something over a bit.
2. The same person can't get more than one place no matter how many designs he/she posts.
3. Your entry should be of your own work.
4. Your entry should show Argo in a unique way—get creative!
5. Deadline? Contest starts NOW and ends May 30th, 2012.
6. The designs should be posted to your DA gallery along with a link to this journal post so people can easily see what the contest is all about.
7. On your art piece, you must include this tag in the TITLE so that I know you're entering it into the contest: (Argo contest)
8. You need to tell me about your entry by sending me a note or writing in a comment below.
9. Judging will be done by Phoenix Dream team, but all the thoughts of other people will be taken in mind so be sure to leave a comment.
10. In case the contest don't have at least 5 entries it will be annulled.

Prizes:

First place:
- Your design will be used in the upcoming RPG game "Faded Haven" with all credit given to you.

I have quite a good idea just hope i have the time to do it! How big does this thing have to be? Was it designed for taking on other fleets and mythical creatures of immense power? Because i have some kick ass ideas for those areas!

It has to be rather huge around 4 floor building at least. It was designed for multi functional use in various situations. This includes war, so it has some rather good gun(s) as well.

Hi ya, I was wondering if in your game, there were any mythical sea creatures- sea dragons, serpents that sort of thing- any animal that is really powerful or "revered"/feared by the people in your game?? It's just that I'd like to base my design of an animal but also tie into your game's universe. :)
Reply
:icondreiks:
Dreiks Featured By Owner May 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
yes there are all of the ones you mentioned :) The greatest creature dwelling the oceans would be Leviathan. It's a gigantic old water dragon, believed to be the king of oceans. Water dragons are serpent like dragons.
Any other questions? I will be glad to answer :)

Thank you very much for your reply! Just one more question, I've never made concept artwork before. Is there a particular way someone should set out concept art. Do I have to do a side-view, plan, bottom view etc Should I include the ship in a landscape?
Also, what is the general aesthetic of your game (i.e. futuristic space age, steam punk, tribal with technological twist etc) or if you haven't really settled on an aesthetic, is there any other concept art for your game that I could look at and try to emulate the style?
ps. sorry I'm being annoying with all these questions, I'm not even very good at digital paintings but I really want to try this out :P

You can't be annoying with questions :) I like to answer questions :)

A basic way to draw a concept art would be somewhat like this: [link] but you can also draw in an another way that's more suited for you if you wish.

It's a fantasy-technology aesthetic. In other words it's the basic fantasy medieval time with improvements in specific fields of technology, mostly in war orientated technology because the biggest technological advance was during the age of terror that ended 10 years before the beginning of the game. I hope it answers your question ^^;

Sadly we don't have any technology orientated concept art yet, which is one of the reasons why we are holding this contest. In the contest description I gave 2 examples of the type of ship we would like to see, use it as inspiration, but do not copy them, make your own design.

More questions? :)

Well that's not enough if you want to make something good :)
take a look at her drawings: :iconsaimain:
Yes she has an incredible talent, but she also spends a lot of time drawing these pics. An average of a full colored and detailed piece takes her around 80 hours if I remember right.
So how about a bit patience next time you draw something, nothing good comes with haste (in this case)

Same goes for a design, most artists spend a lot of time researching as well, so if you want to make a better design spend some time there as well :)
