Inspiration

I'm currently commissioned for a graphics job and I need some inspiration. I need to see some amazing looking dungeons, specifically the walls. Mostly I'm interested in structure and design, for example arches, pillars and so on. Right now I'm drawing a blank, and some top favorites such as SD3 and Chrono Trigger don't really have amazing looking dungeon interiors.

Can anyone help me out? It doesn't necessarily have to be 2D, 3D is fine too if I can see the walls clearly.

Anything can be a dungeon if you build it right.

I kinda like the idea runescape has with there interiors:

They definately have a good idea, not that I'm a fan of the game because of the multiple gameplay changes. Another good reference would be skyrim:

Especially for layout.

edit:soz images aren't working o_0 so I left you the urls

I'd say Torchlight but the dungeons in it don't really have walls.

Also check out .hack//infection if you haven't ever played it. As far as I can remember it had a lot of different randomly generated dungeons.

my 2 cents what ive done in the past is look at Metal slug maps. they have a VAST amount of terrains and settings.

you can find them on google metal slug resource sites. each map is 100% pixel art and one very long horizontal image.

they are gods of pixel art.

[QUOTE=smirt362;1682899]Tom made these


QUOTE]


the first image SCREAMS RPG maker beacause ive seen those rock walls a thousand times recycled in the RPG maker community.(he added purple) Another thing is RPG maker never uses full black either.the color used for the black is exactly the same as TONS of rpg maker "chipsets". usually people edit the RPG maker XP tiles beacause they are larger then normal RPG makers resources.

in the RPG maker community they call tileset "chipsets" and ive noticed tom has done this before when he made a wooden type indoor bedroom room tileset. one day he magically got 5x better.

either way im not against recycling GFX from rpg makers beacause they are there for people to use in their games free.
