RPG-a-day, day 18: What art inspires your game?

Day 18: What art inspires your game?
I don’t really use a lot of art to get inspired for a game. In fact, sometimes I have a mental image for my character and it’s almost impossible to find good art of them! For our Force & Destiny game, I created Chunlade, a female Twi’lek Jedi, a Seeker. Seekers are like scouts, so my mental image was her dressed in practical clothing. It turned out to be really, really hard to find artwork of female Twi’lek Jedi that are not all cleavage and exposed midriffs and thighs… So in that case, if I had looked at artwork for inspiration, I’d probably never come up with the concept of Chunlade.
