Colin's Inspirational Traveller Art Thread

Postby C. Chapman » Tue Feb 10, 2009 11:22 pm

Okay, one thing I tend to do for any rpg I'm running or playing is create a thread wherein I post a lot of cool appropriate inspirational pics from anywhere and everywhere. I tend to be pretty damn good at locating appropriate art, and if you want to get some ideas as to what kinds of threads I create look at these:
Cthulhutech Art thread
Hellas Art thread

Because it's the polite and right thing to do, I try to ensure the artist's names/nicknames are presented, along with links to their galleries. You enter their galleries at your own risk; be aware that they may or may not contain artwork you would deem appropriate or worksafe.

Now, on with the show:

Colin, Your latest Art thread on the Cthulhutech board is pure genius, very inspiring, I wasted over an hour going through that and all the associated links last night.
And if you are doing the same for Traveller I will be very happy.
Thanks for all your hard work. :D

Thanks for the kind words, and yes, I hope to do the same for Traveller if only to prove that finding good sci-fi art is not actually difficult at all. Some of it will be familiar to you from the CTech art thread (because both being sci-fi settings, there will be some usable art in the CTech thread that I'll port over here), but I hope to post plenty of other pics as well (like the stuff by Nicole Cardiff I opened with).

cheers!

And to those who don't know, Colin's inspirational art threads on the Hollow Earth Expedition forums are legend.

I like this stuff. I hope it does prove inspirational for Traveller, because IMO this looks much more in line with modern SF than the "Golden Era" stuff it was originally based on.
