Inspiration & Reference
I just wanted to know if people had any links to good websites for either level design inspiration (photos, paintings, concept art, etc.) or just for architectural reference. We had a thread like this on the old qmap, but we know how much good that does us.

Heh 
I remember the program, 'Making Their Mark' iirc; each episode followed one artist as they created an image specifically for the program. I held on to that particular image and used it for...oh, you know. 
Mike Wilks 
Wow, that guy is awesome. 
LD Theory 
Maybe some people have links to good articles on leveldesign theory ?

For example gamasutra features, like http://www.gamasutra.com/features/20030603/licht_01.shtml 
Speedy: 
could be, but that's probably a topic for another thread. 
Worth Making It A Thread Probably 
useful articles like that are hard to find, the ones on the TeamShambler site spring to mind though 
As In, They're Good, Not Useless

Shouldn't the curve be flexing while the spike is piercing it and not before?

True, but this looked more jelly.
wanted a spark in it, and more rushy...

I love you 
Art And Architecture 
40,000 images of art and architecture, brought to you by the Courtauld Institute of Art:

(Also, when you see it say "this feature is only available to registered users," don't get discouraged -- the feature you were expecting is still available, and the only thing you can't do usually is weird stuff like save your searches, build image sets for others to view, etc.)

thanks for that, some really really nice stuff there. I know what I'm doing all of tomorrow morning. 
Eh Woah? 
I know what I'm doing all of tomorrow morning.

What, using that inspiration to start some bad ass mapping?? 
 
I think he means 'Masturbate furiously over them all' seeming as nitin doesn't map. 
Another One: 
ArtServe: http://rubens.anu.edu.au/

This site has tons of high-resolution images. For example:

10,000+ pictures of Cairo: http://rubens.anu.edu.au/htdocs/bycountry/egypt/index1.html

50,000+ pictures of Japan: http://rubens.anu.edu.au/htdocs/bycountry/japan/index1.html

60,000+ pictures of Italy: http://rubens.anu.edu.au/htdocs/bycountry/italy/index1.html

You could spend the rest of your life downloading all of these.
