1. Pick up a book, best if it's weird fantasy/science fiction 2. Open random passage 3. Read 4. Draw it
Also tabletop sourcebook can be great for inspiration. Eclipse Phase has transhumanist future and fucking sun whales. Werewolf: the Forsaken 2ed has pretty sweet blend of modern horror with animism and bunch of other shit. In next post I'll copy+past passage from Eclipse Phase, see if you wouldn't like to draw it.
SURYAS AND SALAMANDERS (CORONAL MORPHS) Perhaps an example of transhumanity’s most extreme neogenetic creations are the morphs adapted to live in the sun’s corona. Suryas, named after a Hindu sun deity, are large, whale-like, and uniquely adapted to dwell in the brilliant, superheated plasma cloud of the sun’s outermost layer. Each surya is like a miniature version of a circumsolar habitat. Their metabolisms generate powerful magnetic shields that shield them from the sun’s heat and radiation, while acting as magnetic sails and scoops by which they sail on the currents of the solar wind and extract elements carried on it. Suryas are protected by layers of liquid water “blubber” that capture harmful ions, which internal medichines extract and eject, while maintaining useful elements such as oxygen and hydrogen, from which more water can be synthesized. They communicate using patterns of dark and light coloration on their exterior skins and are extremely sensitive to the he- lioseismic soundwaves that are the sun’s pulse, using these vibrations to predict and avoid heavy weather in the coronal atmosphere. A second type of coronal morph is the salamander, a tiny humanoid morph with gas jets on the back and chest for maneuvering in vacuum. Salamanders have very similar metabolisms to suryas, but are unable to survive unprotected in the corona. They subsist on the chemicals and energy extracted from the corona by Ukko Jylinä, the only habitat where they are found. Both suryas and salamanders communicate either via transmissions from their implants or by “sunspot- ting”—shifting dark and light patterns on their skins to form language.
