Strix by polarlex Strix by polarlex
This is my 3rd entry.*
Please, check full-size.

2nd - Aquilon [link]
1st - Shaitan [link]

----------------------------Wiki - injection-------------------------
Strix (pl. striges or strixes) was the Ancient Roman and Greek word for owl. In folklore it was considered a bird of ill omen that fed on human flesh and blood, a product of metamorphosis. The name is Greek in origin and means "owl" (the name of the genus Strix follows this meaning).

The contrasted lighting really helps to make the features pop out in just the right way. This effectively gives a solid sense of depth, volume, and proportion, which is kind of necessary in a scene where the background is a space-scape, since there is little/no opportunity to place other objects to give the necessary sense of scale or proportion.

Beyond that, I like the design! :D It's much more balanced and realistic than many spacecraft designs, while still holding a very unique and appealing appearance. Well done :)

This was by far my fav design in the contest, it's a shame this or your other one didn't make it into the top 3 let alone the final 15! Oh well.

This is what happens when a Jovian engineer sleeps with a Matari vixen. She smacks him into creating a sexy and rusty looking ship. Me wants this bad.

in order of best to worst

this is also the order i would most likely like to see win [link]

1) strix
2) aquilon
3) shaitan <- it a bad name could be called s-hit-an by some people

interesting design.

Would leave the specs to CCP though, a frig with 6400 Shields and even more Armor (plus Structure), CPU/Cap and Structure are nowhere near realistic.
You seem to had a lucky hand at dicing out numbers of the Aquilon (if you take the Cap by 50%), but you horribly overdone this one.
You also seemed to had a lucky hand at modeling and texturing the Aquilon, which perfectly fits into EVE and looks amazing.

thanx. I`ve said before, that all specs are just for fun. To show how it fit the meaning of the "dream ship" for me. This 1 is sorta "Polaris". To show how it fit the meaning of the "dream ship" for me.
Sorta special edition ship. GM or NPC. [link]
