Awhile back, I was searching for someone to create a mascot for EpicTable. I wanted a mascot–an iconic figure, not just a logo. Some creature that would be to EpicTable what Eddie is to Iron Maiden. My search led me to Adam Vehige and his gallery on deviantART.
Along the way, I spent (way too many) hours paging through some really great artwork. I’ve found myself returning to these sites when I need inspiration for an important villian or location.
Looking at work of this quality can often give me the boost I need to come up with a site or encounter that’s more memorable. I thought I’d share some of my favorites here.
I’m not going to load you down with a ton of links. There’s a lot worth exploring on deviantART and CG Channel. These are just my favorites.
Author’s Note: Sadly, the CGGallery links have become unavailable since this post was written. I managed to find Lacoste’s and Jieanu’s work on deviantART, but I’ve not been so lucky in other cases. I’ve removed the links but left the text in case anyone cares to track some of these artists down.
