One of the common questions in chats or comments or even emails is about where to find ideas and inspiration for either kitbash parts or general hard surface design.
There is no real answer here as you can find inspiration anywhere really. Even if you open your PC and check how cables connect into a graphics card… there are some interesting shapes to be discovered. It all just comes to what is inspiring to you.
But here I´m going to share a few sources I usually visit and save to Pinterest boards. This all comes to personal preference, and your idea of inspiration will probably be different than mine, but since I´m sharing, my search is mostly focused around automotive design. If I need kitbash parts, I would search for keywords like car parts, motorbike parts, city bike parts, car interior, etc.
As for general forms aside from typical robot inspiration of which there is a lot on artstation for example, I find that concept cars and sports cars (sport bikes too) can be an excellent source of inspiration in robotic design so will share a few sources.
On a side note, I tried to credit each image but for some, I could not find the source, unfortunately. If you happen to know the original creators, feel free to let me know so I can properly credit them.
That´s it for now guys, until next time!
