Art Contest: StarCorps Industries

Breaking News; priority – A,
Wardak sector, Newbella November 24,
Winston McMahon reporting

In the midst of the current economic crisis, StarCorps Industries is under contract with FHI to produce a new assault class chassis for general sale as a mobile fire-support platform. Unfortunately, the new prototype was located at the Masada testing facility (7 kilometers north of my current location) which was overrun by the Word of Blake 47th and 51st divisions late Wednesday night. Details are sketchy, but reports indicate that the design is a total loss—along with the rest of the StarCorps testing facility.

As a result of losing this contract, StarCorps is now facing imminent bankruptcy. In an attempt to overcome the loss of its prototype, and the demise of its advanced testing facility, StarCorps is said to be working with its trusted team of design engineers to resurrect one of its most enduring and venerable designs in hopes to “wow” investors enough to keep the current contract alive. Board members have scheduled an emergency meeting for Friday, presumably to plan the quick launch of this new chassis and prevent the fall of its Star League rooted company. We were able to get a brief statement from Brian Fitzgerald of StarCoprs Industries early this morning:

“We are desperately working around the clock to find the solution to the current problems we are facing. But, rest assured, there is a solution; we will overcome as we have always done in the past.”

- Brian Fitzgerald of StarCorps Industries

More on this as details arrive; this is Winston McMahon, reporting for CGN news.

Your mission should you choose to accept it: Design and Illustrate StarCorps HGN-739 Highlander Concept for review.


Contest Rules:

While this is intended as an art contest and not a design contest (it is not required for you to come up with a design for your HGN-739 Highlander only artwork) it is suggested that a design be submitted with your illustration in the spirit of the theme. Feel free to use the design to elaborate on the location of weapons and the basic design structure of your illustration. Artwork and the optional design will be posted for final judging when applicable.

2. No more than two entries per person.

3. All artwork must be new (no dusting off old drawings).

4. Medium is open to your choice, but please submit original illustrations (i.e. no coloring existing images from TROs).

5. Scanned images should be at least 600 x 600 at 300 DPI (images will be resized for voting).

For this art contest you create Highlander artwork for an entirely new design concept (HGN-739) as you see fit to solve the above problem. As stated you may or may not submit an actual design with your artwork but it is assumed that the Highlander will be based on a new chassis and not one of the existing variants like the Royal 732b.

So you design a new Highlander for the Jihad era, then create an illustration for your design. If you want to submit your design and artwork together great, if not then just send in your artwork. I hope that covers it, sorry if I was unclear in the original post. Thanks!

The contest fluff suggests that the scenario happened during the Jihad era. The exact year is not critical; however feel free to select one for your design if you like.

Sry. I never made it past the framework/outline on my entry. I had every intention of finishing it yesterday, but I was so wiped out and exhausted from camping the previous night I passed out on the couch. :oops:
