Well, I can't seem to find any backgrounds to match the kitchen or warehouse scenes detailed here.

Just an idea.

cool thanks. but the thing is, you guys probably have a better idea of what you want the "moon base" to look like. if u wanted to sketch a few pics, feel free. or u could refer it to something.
CHEERS

Three reasons why I'm not replying with pictures illustrating my ideas for this scene:
  1. Well, as I've said before, I draw like crap (on paper anyway, with computers I can take my time and generally get something close to what I had planned, but on paper: imagine art worse than stick figures; I just figure I never got those motor skills :wink:).
  2. Also, I don't want to go against what any of the writers had in mind.
  3. Therefore, it logically follows that if I draw it, by standard means at least, it will violate my second goal; since what any of the writers had in mind is far outside my capability to even render a sketch of it.
So, I'll just quote Eegah :D :
Eegah wrote:Screen 9- The Warehouse
A huge huge stack of boxes is essentially the background of this room. One small light on a string hangs down in this very large room, illuminating only a small portion. The door, on the left, is outlined in gray. On the right side, there is a series of violently opened boxes, with an apeman’s head sticking out of one. He eyes Roger suspiciously. There is a mallet lying on the floor right in the light.
For the light, perhaps something like your broomcloset picture, only with a smaller area of effectiveness.

I imagine for the apeman eyeing Roger, just to have a box with blackness inside, and later we'll put an animated sprite of big, round eyes inside, so we can have them blink occasionally.
Eegah wrote:Screen 10- The Kitchen
The kitchen is a large room [...] with the door on the right. There is a huge bunch of bananas sitting next to the door. The rest of the room is a large series of metallic kitchen stuff (refrigerators, ovens, various tools). On the far left side of the room is a display case full of banana cream pies with little cherries on the top. On top of the display case is a large sign which says ‘DELICIOUS PIES!’ in goofy red lettering. In between the case and the kitchen area is a large [red] couch with a big fat apeman in a muscle shirt, leaning back and watching TV (with rabbit ear antennae).
This part should come fairly easy to your imagination, simply imagine the major kitchen appliances of today (in stainless steel), only updated a few hundred years (perhaps LCD (plasma)/LCARS display panels, automated door-opening mechanisms (no handles?), etc. : generally less analog and more digital; fewer knobs, more button panels). The pies should be easy; perhaps use something from the Pie-ery.

Sorry, if these descriptions can't do the job...I may come up with something more representative, though don't expect much in the way of sketches from me. Perhaps if this is inadequate, kain would provide one of his by now famous sketches?
