Where did the inspiration images come from?

This image is by a Hungarian concept design studio, Pixoloid Studios, and was created for the role-playing game Starfinder (Paizo Publishing). They've done heaps of work for various films, games, and animation projects.

The second image is by Bruce Brenneise, an illustrator from the USA who loves world-building through vibrant and epic (and sometimes weird) environments. 

The last image is by Nick Greenwood, another USA-based illustrator who works across many genres, but particularly in fantasy and science fiction.
