The Facepunch "Reference Pictures" Photo Thread

**AUG 21st, important rule revision: Please, please try not to google “reference pictures” or “cool wallpapers”. This thread is for unique photos, not for cool artsy wallpapers you found on Google Images. **

[c]

Seeing as I’m one of the most universally disliked posters since DrSalvador, I’m the best person to start a megathread.



2:35 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: anyway
2:35 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: what's your opinion on making a reference picture megathread?
2:35 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: you know, of actual pictures
2:35 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: that would be possible to map.
2:35 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: there was a concept art thread a few months ago
2:35 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: but nobody can find it
2:35 PM - MaddaCheeb: Don't we already have that? Oh yeah that.
2:35 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: and it had no rules
2:35 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: or anything
2:36 PM - MaddaCheeb: I need sci-fi pictures 
2:36 PM - MaddaCheeb: So sure
2:36 PM - MaddaCheeb: Do ittttt




2:17 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: still, I think it'd be better to have a real megathread
2:17 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: with fancy banners
2:17 PM - Turtleey - buy me skyrim: and ongoing discussion
2:17 PM - Shirk: Yeah


So basically, put your fancy pictures here, or if you have mapping block, look for fancy pictures and then map them.
And since the best threads have rules, have some rules.

RULES
1: This is not a thread for pictures of you.
2: This is not a thread for pictures of your cat or other people’s cats.
3: This is not a thread for pictures of your musical instruments.
4: This is not a thread for mapping requests or pictures of your map.
5: This is not a thread for your artsy pictures of flowers and cupcakes. If the picture isn’t mappable, take it to Creationism Corner.

6: This thread is for pictures of things that would be possible to map in Hammer, or at least to a degree.
7: This thread is for discussion about the pictures previously posted and requests for pictures, such as “hey, can you get a closer picture of that thing in the corner” or “can you take a picture of the outside too”.

8: For larger images, use [t] instead of [img] so that they don’t stretch the page.
9: Please try to avoid posting massive, epic concept art or fan-art. While those are cool, they’re practically impossible to create in Hammer and they’re very easy to find on Google.
10: I’d recommend trying to use only your photos, but if you found a photo from a source that isn’t well-known (ie, NOT GOOGLING “cool pictures”) you’re encouraged to post it.

So, start posting your pictures. And if anyone has a better banner, please share it.

No real theme, these are images I’ve used in the past and felt like sharing. I’ll post more later.

Those are great, but try to use [t] instead of [img] for bigger images so that they don’t stretch the page. Actually, I should add that onto the rules.

One of the best sites for derelict and abandoned architecture and references.

I also use a similar site, which also has some location filtering.

Does anyone have any good spy villain base/lair reffrences ? I find them rather hard to…well…find

Watch Austin Powers, or James Bond movies

I’ve gotta ask once again that people at least try to post THEIR pictures, otherwise there isn’t much of a difference between this and googling “cool wallpapers”.

And some content.

By “their” pictures, do you mean pictures we have photographed ourselves? Because if so I have a feeling there will be A LOT less pictures of anything neat besides a few things.

You can google reference images but you can’t google into (most) peoples cameras, plus this will be for the intent purpose of making flashy things in hammer.

Reality sometimes looks unrealistic.

Here’s some Arizona-style houses:

What shitty looking homes haha

They all seem a bit grungy, but neat projects all the same.
