Thrill-powered backgrounds for video calls
« on: 27 April, 2020, 04:26:55 PM »
Hey, folks, now that we live in a science fiction dystopia many of us are spending their days on video calls. Increasingly, that creates opportunities to add a fun background... so of course I started to think about 2000 AD art.

Are there any resources available? I'd love to use a background that shows Mega City One, Nu Earth or other places? I'm also conscious that most comic art is focused on characters, and images used as background should probably not have figures visible. So just using our favourite 2K art wouldn't work, I think.

Hive mind - any thoughts, links or other contributions?

Amongst the many and varied backgrounds I use when meeting with my team (and then hurriedly take down when I have a 'grown up meeting') I've got a few 2000ad ones I've used - as well as Asterix, MM Fury Road and others.

I'm hoping I've attached them to this post... but technology may well fail me ... or I fail it...lets see...

Damnit the file size is too large... hold on...

Right I'll stop spamming this thread - but when I got the Fabry one this one by Chris Weston (bit of a classic) was the one I was actually after...

BBC has released a bunch of images of empty sci-fi sets.
