Dungeonspiration: Jonas De Ro

I spend a good chunk of time on deviantArt looking at pictures.  Admittedly, there is a tons of things I'm not too interested in seeing - thousands of pictures of Naruto draw by twelve year olds, photographs of fat guy's belly buttons, and balloon breasted Poser models in stiff, out-of-the-box stances, but there is a lot of absolutely wonderful stuff too.  Case in point - Jonas De Ro.

De Ro, a Portugese/Belgian living in Germany, creates absolutely wonderful vistas that take the breath away.  I've collected a small smattering of his work below that can inspire ideas in setting ranging from fantasy, cyberpunk, and post apocalyptic nightmares.

Currently, De Ro is working as a Creative Artist on the movie based on the book Cloud Atlas.  If his paintings are any indication, it should be a visual treat.

Be sure and click through to the images on his deviantArt account and take a look at the rest of his gallery.  It's some great stuff that left me inspired.
