Far as I’m concerned, there aren’t many communities as dynamic as EVE’s. There’s a consistent flow of websites, tools, and artistic interpretations added to the ecosystem that pertains to New Eden. Much of the time, that interests me more than gameplay, so when I see something new and cool, I like to pass it on and boost the signal.

Redditor GelatinousDude is an EVE player who’s begun taking pixel art commissions. In a matter of a couple of weeks, he’s built up a reputation and a backlog. GelatinousDude generally charges between 500 million and one billion ISK, paid in advance. Well worth it, as far as I’m concerned, and I haven’t seen a word of complaint from his clients. His takeaway and guidelines are fairly straightforward:

I’m treading the line of devaluing the design service field for pixelers of Eve, and providing fair pricing for my time and the result. When I️ started doing this I️ was making about 75m per hour, now I’m up to 175m on average. I’ve gotten quicker and more efficient.

I hate that I feel I have to do this, but in order to respect my time, I’m now requiring full payment up front. I don’t hold the clients responsible that have led to this decision. I’m accountable for setting guidelines that will cover me, and I didn’t do that. I have a long list of happy clients, and they can attest to speediness, thoroughness and promptness of communication and work.

His preferred contact method is private message on Reddit; his in-game identity is unknown, but his work speaks for itself. It’s a funky artistic vision that makes me want to play FTL. To my eye, his best piece so far is this fantastic commission of an Amarr Oracle battlecruiser:

In the past week or so, GelatinousDude has also churned out an Imperial Navy Slicer, a Chremoas, a Chimera, a Kronos, a Keres, and a NyxUpcoming commissions include a Coercer and a Garmur, two of the most gorgeous ships in New Eden. I’m looking forward to GelatinousDude’s future work.
