lol, just what the thread title states. Also sorry for the wall of text.
A week ago I decided to mess around with Eve but didn’t really want to do anything in game, I definitely wasn’t gonna sit in station and just spin ships so I decided to open some new accounts and created a bunch of characters. Gotta give due creds to CCP for their Character Creation, it’s definitely another aspect of this game that doesn’t get used very much. The rendering is excellent and the whole process is easy to work with and the results are amazing.
Within this past week I created 5 new characters and then customized 11 character’s total, all wearing NES Apparel items for new portraits. And I actually had fun doing it.
Now when I first started playing this game, my original plan back then was to have a male character from each Faction, basically the 4 Horseman Of Eve.
Unfortunately accounts only have 3 character slots so I just created Minmatar, Gallente and Amarr male characters. Also I didn’t realize just exactly how long it takes a character to train up skills so I basically just stayed with this character - DeMichael Crimson. With almost 210 mill SP’s now, I’ve noticed I’m starting to run out of useful sub-cap skills to train.
So in my first couple of years of playing, I only had 1 account with 3 characters on it and only used this character in-game. However I needed a Trade character so I opened a 2nd account and created a female companion character for my Minmatar main. I actually used the Trade character quite a bit for a couple of years.
At the time when I got the 2nd account, about 8 years ago, a friend of mine in-game decided to quit playing and gave me his Minmatar male character and all it’s assets. I’ve pretty much just kept that character and all it’s assets as they were in case he ever decides to come back. Course it’s been over 8 yrs now so I doubt it but hey, whenever I log into that character and view all it’s stuff, ship fit’s and names, I’m reminded of my friend that I use to fly with back when we were young and inexperienced. Had some good times back then.
Soo, I had 2 accounts with 5 characters, of which I mainly only use this character and sometimes would log in the Trade character on the 2nd account. Then a couple years ago I decided I wanted to try out Faction Warfare so I created a male Minmatar character which filled up my 6 character slots on 2 accounts.
Anyway, I decided to finish the original goal I had when I first started this game - of creating the 4 Horseman Of Eve. However since I had already created a Female companion for my Minmatar main, I decided the other characters also needed companions.
So I created the last male character to complete the original group and then created female companions for the other characters. After doing all that, I ended up with a total of 11 characters on 4 accounts.
While doing that, I got an idea to create some Eve Scenes featuring the characters in Eve related location shots. I spent quite a bit of time in-game doing contracts and traveling to fit the new Characters with approaite NES Apparel items, then even more time making the actual scene using the character’s portrait.
This is my first one and I plan to make others that I’ll post in the ‘My Eve’ subforum with a short synopsis about each scene. I just wanted to share the circumstances and the reason behind the idea, plus get some feedback on the finished product.
And without further ado, here is my first Eve Character Scene:
