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.

Clathrus Archeri 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clathrus_archeri

Clathrus archeri (synonyms Lysurus archeri, Anthurus archeri, Pseudocolus archeri), commonly known as octopus stinkhorn, or devil's fingers, is a fungus indigenous to Australia and New Zealand, and an introduced species in Europe, North America and Asia. The young fungus erupts from a suberumpent egg by forming into four to seven elongated slender arms initially erect and attached at the top. The arms then unfold to reveal a pinkish-red interior covered with a dark-olive spore-containing gleba. In maturity it smells like putrid flesh.

I don't understand much of the math behind this one, but the shapes are really interesting, organic somehow. 
Handpainted Animated Pixel Art Landscapes 
From an old calendar / planner called Seize the Day that had these beautiful scenes that changed every month, and had variations for each day... sometimes it'd be sunny, sometime it'd be raining or snowing.

Someone's converted these to HTML5
http://www.effectgames.com/demos/worlds/

Very cool to see that if you click the options button, you can see that all the animation is being achieved by changes to the image palette.

Mark Ferrari, you don't have to say more.

Here you have his lecture from GDC:

Brilliant 
that video could not be more relevant. I can't believe how he made the time of day changes work. This guy is a genius. 
Gilbert Gorski 
 
Great stuff, both the pixel art the the Gilbert artwork. That is some really beautiful pixel art. I'm also really into Gilbert's artwork - the Little Boxes one is an instant favorite.

Some Utility WADs 
I packed a few of the textures I made into a couple of WADs: one WAD designed to address some issues with the default light textures, and one to expand a little on the default base textures.

@ubiq 
No offense but not a fan of the site you use for hosting those files. The wads are great though!!

I uploaded them to Quaketastic

Thanks, I updated the post with the Quaketastic mirror. 
 
 
@mfx 
Thanks for the latest link, there are some cool designs in there, but I don't get the first one. What kind of site is this supposed to be? (note that I've only visited it from my phone, not from a computer, it may explain my lack of understanding if stuff is missing from my mobile experience)
