Cool! The Concept Ships blog is also worth keeping an eye on if you're not an embittered, alienated, imaginationless husk of humanity you like imaginary spaceships.

From the comments on the "25 Inspiring Examples.... " link: I’m so tired of looking at space marines and space ships. The user who is tired of looking at space marines and space ships is tired of life.

Maybe the poor dear just needs to look at a few top-heavy women in chain-mail bikinis to clear his visual palette.

(No reason you can't have both, of course. Your average Baen cover has a hot chick in a bust-enhancing armored spacesuit doing something against a background of a spaceship exploding real good.)

i picked up a book on the concept art of godzilla once (still kicking myself for not buying it) ...there was a big spread from 'godzilla vs mothra'... the skies were fluorescent pink and mothra was shooting quite a large amount of lightning out of her eyeballs...different times, I guess...

Ugh. Total love/hate thing with concept art... mostly love, though. I went through a period of collecting production game concept art, but it was so close to impossible to actually get anything that I quit in absolute despair. Having said that, you will get my System Shock and Undying pieces only by pulling them out of my cold, dead hands.
