    Icon Help with inspiration

    Hey,

    I didn't really knew which forum to post this in, so I end up here.
    I'm appling to a vocational training in gamedesign here in sweden and the end of this year. Till then I'll have to come up with a game concept and I'm pretty much finnished with the story and gameplay. I figured I needed some graphics for this project too so I started drawing various creatures, a buttload of weapons, helmets and... wait, armour? I turned out to be a pretty bad armour designer, so I guess I need some inspiration!

    I'm looking for pictures of high-tech armour and vehicle designs. I'm mostly looking for pictures that's slightly egyptian and roman inspired but anything else is also appreciated. And don't worry, I wont steal anything, just need the inspiration

    Just as a note although not entirely relevant, when i have an idea for a character or illustration and i am not inclined to put it into immediate use, i got these little cards i bought from the newsagent which i write down a title and then keywords, enough for me to remember it in detail when i read it again.
    I then put it into the stack on my table so at any time i can go back to an idea and work with it.

    -write down a list of keywords that are (even remotely) relevant to your search
    -google image search every keyword, save a few hundred images found
    -set up a slideshow with those
    -quicksketch the most striking features in each image
    => presto derived style

    This forum has also really nice search function. I tried "armour" keyword for thread titles and it found something really interesting.

    HI Zombie,
    I've written a bit on the games industry, if you are interested. Check out the link in my sig. . .
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
