Images similar to original HQ art

Postby Jaguar69 » Monday January 24th, 2011 12:10am

Hi folks, I have seen so many great homebrew cards that look fantastic, just like the original cards in the look and feel. Most using new images that look very similar to the black and white.

Is there any websites out there that you would recommend where I can obtain similar looking images for spell/ equipment cards? Such as from different games etc.

I have seen drathe's excellent tutorial on converting images to look like B&W bitmaps, but I have seen some cool looking stuff on the spanish HQ site and wondered where people get such great stuff.

Thanks in advance for any help! |_P

Google "Fantasy Art" or something like that...with safe search OFF...

I have already googled 'fantasy art', 'fantasy images', 'fantasy pictures' with not too much success.
I thought that someone may know of a particular place where such pictures could be found wothout the need to do too much editing.

Iv tried going on warhammer sites too, but these are hit and miss.

Deviant art is ok if you have an idea of what you want, because you can make it search for inked, fantasy art, black and white, pencil, traditional. Then it's just a case a trawling through a sea of crud to find something decent.

To answer my own original post. Just found some cool stuff.

This site is pretty good for Fantasy art images.

Can be used with drathe's tutorial to create HQ looking images.
