This is a question for the digital painters out there.
I'm in the mood to do a very dark, Giger-esque, industrial, horror type digital collage/Illustration. The Photoshop work is no problem. My question is where to find hi-rez reference material. I'm not sure what I want to do yet but I'll know it when I see it. Do some of you guys take your own photos? have any suggestions where I might look. stuff like rusty metal, wires, gears, strange machinery, general creepy stuff, etc.
I've looked through Photodisc and some other stock photo places. no luck. Any suggestions?
