Art Ideas Thread!
Well transhumans, uplifts and infolife of the forums? What say ye? Let me kick it off with the two I dropped in the Transhuman discussion thread that led to this idea. I think we need to see an interior shot of a strip club on a scum barge where some exhuman-level mods adorn the freakish forms of the male(??) strippers, with a bunch of hootin' and hollerin' lady scum up-votin' @-rep on floating AR overlay in front of them, as a party of PCs wander through the foreground, a remade dudely soldierman pointing with jaw agape while the battered AGI clank, uplift neo-octopus and androgynous neuter ruster keep walking, uninterested. I love the two-shot pics at the beginning of chapters where you see one angle of a scene and then the other. My fave so far has been the guy in full vacsuit with helmet pointing a gun at baldy, which has you thinking "Man, some kind of security meathead in uniform is messing w-" and then you turn the page and baldy has massacred a bunch of people. I would love to see one of those for an egocast, where you see someone in a splicer or exalt or remade strapped in with a sketchy looking transhuman at the controls, and the next shot is a darkcast gone wrong where a row of cases as far as the eye can see are being ushered off of platforms at gunpoint, with the closest case being loaded with the ego from the previous page, a team with guns at the ready surrounding them.This would be interesting -- aside from sometimes running dry on ideas, it would just be interesting to see what kind of pics people want to see in the books. Maybe there should be an art ideas thread? Things people on the forums want to see depicted in the books are going to be some awesome things, I have no doubt. The most epic/devious/horrifying moments from on-going campaigns, crystallized as a single image, would make for good reading, much less good art ideas!
