Default Looking for subject suggestions

Hey folks,

I'm thinking of doing another Traveller art project. I've done a few images in the past of various things that were of interest to me, but I thought it might be illuminating to get some perspective of what others in the community would be interested in seeing.

No promises that anything will come of it, but good suggestions, particularly of the non starship sort (unless it's something that has not yet seen a treatment i.e. Leviathan), could motivate me into taking action of some kind when I get motivated and have some free time.

Cheers!

A Shuttle or Pinnace maybe? That X-Boat rocks!

I'd love to see a really nice detailed rendering of a Gazelle Class Close Escort.

The Imperial Palace or Moot Spire?

Ancient ship from SOTA?

Something that would look nice on the Calendar

A scene in which most 'major' (i.e., commonly encountered/discussed) species are present in some form, where they aren't a) fighting, or b) sitting in a starport dive, would be interesting. (Major negotiations around a large table, perhaps?) Something of this sort might look really good on a calendar.

A scene on a new, primitive, or backwater world, highlighting the scene, environment, view, and perhaps some 'typical' (or not-so-typical...) equipment found with a landing party (a vehicle of some sort, characters engaged in research/scouting activities, scientific stuff), or something of that sort. Something highlighting the 'not run-of-the-mill' backwater setting.

I'd like to second Hiverlord's excellent suggestions.

Perhaps an exploration scene of some sort? A mixed-specie party outside the pyramids from "Shadows" or an Octagon tower?

Or a diplomatic function of some sort? Zhos, Aslan, Vargr, Darrians, and Imperials standing in small groups with cocktail glasses and plates of canapes?

Some interesting ideas. I hadn't thought about the 'Shadows' pyramids or the ship in SotA before. I actually tried to figure out a setup for the Twilight Peak octagon, but I just couldn't wrap my head around the description of the environment for some reason.

I've often thought of doing something like Hiverlord suggests, I did a few sketches of a scene with explorers in an ATV going through a forest the size of Redwood trees, except the trees were huge fungi. The problem was that it would take a lot of work to punch that out. I already do this for a living, I don't need something that's work in my spare time.

Oh, and thanks for the complement Spinward Scout. What kind of shuttle are you referring to?

Definitely some food for thought here. Keep em coming if you have more!

Just a generic shuttle like in a ship listing in one of the books. The Traveller Book has a bunch of ship's I'd like to see CG.

A Speeder, or a standard GCarrier?

A Slow Boat, or a Slow Pinnance?

A Scout in a Grav Belt?

The Zhodani Z80 Grav Tank?

Best regards,

Ewan
