Captain Maths to the rescue!

"Image must have 3:2 aspect ratio. Ideal resolution is 2048 x 1364"

But, Megan...

  • 2048 / (3:2) = 1365 (not 1364)
  • 1364 * (3:2) = 2046 (not 2048)

You must chooooose!

I'm a bit curious about how I could create an entry. I've seen the three entries in the Codex, and there's no way I'd be able to create something like what was chosen with my "artistic ability". Is this contest asking for something like those entries, or something like the fanart entries?

I'm also a little curious if there are any recommended programs to use to design an entry? The only other contest I've done was for Warframe cards, and my entry didn't exactly go as well as I had hoped it would. I'm pretty good at drawing, but some of the frames are just a little too complicated for me at times.

A quick question about this one... Codex art "synergy"... does this mean there will be cephalon fragments hiding on one of the planets to unlock this art for our ship?
