Designer SKINs: Next-Level Nanocoating Tuesday, August 25, 2015

The Caldari affinity for utilitarian design is the reason many were surprised to see their shipyards the birthplace of Designer SKINs. Eliina Kariopka, known for high-impact designs, brings the fiery intensity of Caldari Prime's evening skies to nanocoat technology in "Raata Sunset", the first of several Designer SKINs for Caldari ships.

The Designer SKIN concept isn't exclusive to the Caldari. Artists from various factions have secured contracts and resources to begin developing bold new styles, with many expecting to roll out in the near future.

Redesign: The Gallente Dominix Tuesday, August 25, 2015

The venerable Dominix has seen combat since the Gallente-Caldari War. The time for the iconic look of this historic battleship to evolve has come, and the Gallente have spared no expense in updating the appearance of this glorious warhorse.

Built upon the Dominix hull, the Sin has long been Gallente's entry in the field of battleship Black Ops. With its predecessor's redesign comes one of its own, including rumors of a complete hull overhaul in the near future.

Camera Update: Watch the kill shot Tuesday, August 25, 2015
