PROJECT Images that represent worldbuilding

Discussion in 'CREATING WORLDS & SETTINGS' started by Minibit, Aug 31, 2014.

  1. I'm working on a banner to advertise the newly-completed "Worldbuilding from Square One" series, and the design is a stretch of five board-game-squares, with each one framing a picture that represents a part of the worldbuilding process, and the text
    "Build your World from Square One" over top

    I have an image of cartographer's tools I like to represent the mapmaking aspect, and a picture of a bright, non-earth planet that I'd like to use for square five

    but I'd like your help finding images to use for the rest of it. Specifically, I'm looking for pictures of all shapes and sizes that can be easily seen as representing

    • Multiple aspects of culture (food, dance, art, clothes, buildings, etc)
    • Geographical design (mountains, valleys, deserts, invented landforms, etc)
    • Flora & fauna
    I do NOT want to use images that
    • Are funny or cartoonish
    • Have a person or humanoid being as the focal point
    • Are too specific to one genre of world (the Guild is for scifi, modern, realistic, and historical worlds as well as fantasy ones)
    Now Gimme!
