cover stories

Hopefully most who have received the latest issue will be enjoying it. It was quite a tough one on account of the cover feature being an absolute bitch to illustrate, consternation over which managed to cause a few tensions within the EON ranks. Originally I had asked Svenstaro, famous for his 3D EVE ship wallpapers, to put an image together for the cover, but as the text came in it from Nate it seemed that what I wanted was either going to be impossible to do in the dwindling time we had available before deadline, or it just wasn’t going to fit with the theme of the cover feature itself.

After flip-flopping and prevaricating about the place (as only I know how) the calvary appeared on the hill in the form of an image CCP had created as a extra for the Testflight article – which ended up working far better than I hoped, thanks to the work of EON’s Art Editor “Wee” Jamie who toyed about with the in-game map elements. As ever, it all worked out well in the end, but i do feel a little bad for Svenstaro having had done all the work I had asked of him with nothing coming of it… If he ever makes it to Fanfest, I will have to buy him a beer.



One thought on “cover stories

  1. Oh, so that’s how you treat your minions! =)
