Concept art or sketches?
« on: August 20, 2006, 11:55:12 am »

I humbly apologize if this topic has already been addressed, but I've exhausted all the searches I can think of, both of this forum and google.

Is there a place online where one can see non-screenshot concept art or sketches of Star Control characters, races or artifacts?  The reason I ask. . . well, I could swear that I saw a picture in a magazine once of an Orz in a red encounter suit of some kind, kinda like a fishbowl on treads.

Did I dream that?

Anyway, if people could point me to the treasure-trove of official (i.e. not fan-works) concept art or sketches that I've missed, I'd be super-grateful.

I think I have only seen fan-made art like that. The closest TFB material to what you describe that I know of would be in the manual and hints book. My game only came with .pdf files, where there was an image of an Orz in an EVA-suite. It was in black and white, but perhaps it was in colour in the luxery versions.

For original SC2 related material the best source would be Yukki's Magic Box, which nowadays only exists on The Internet Archive.

Also a lot can be found at The Pages of Now and Forever, though most will be fan-created.

there's Arne's fan art @ http://www.itchstudios.com/psg/main.php?id=sce

there's the Pages of Now and Forever - excuse the supposedly buggy design but the author vaporized mysteriously
 - http://starcontrol.classicgaming.gamespy.com/fan/pictures.shtml
 - http://starcontrol.classicgaming.gamespy.com/fan/draw1.shtml
 - http://starcontrol.classicgaming.gamespy.com/fan/3drender.shtml

there's this - http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/fanq/a/u/aumala2/aumala2.html

but all of these are just fan-made, probably not what you're looking for.

. . . Um, yeah.

I don't like to contradict admins, but that link didn't seem to lead anywhere.  Am I missing something?

It seems like a problem with the Internet Archive itself. You'll just have to try again later.
