Every writer needs inspiration. And even with the magic of the internet, sometimes it can take time to find the right resources to get the creative juices flowing. So, to speed things up I’ve started cataloging useful Pinterest boards. Whether I’m looking for fantasy characters, cyberpunk tech, or a post-apocalyptic setting, Pinterest seems to have a ready supply of it all. Hard to go wrong with thousands of categorized images at your fingertips.
Without further ado, I present to you, seven awesome post-apocalyptic Pinterest boards.
This board has everything from guns and knives to gas masks and custom armor. Some of these pins are traditional artwork and others are high-quality, hand-crafted props. If you can’t figure out what your heroes and villains should be wielding to maim each other, you could do worse than digging through this board for ideas.
There’s an assortment of ways to get around in the wasteland, and this board covers it all. If you aren’t sure how your dystopian characters are going to make their epic journey, take a peek in here. Armored cars, dune buggies, and trucks with spiked tires… What more could you want?
Crumbling buildings, cities being overtaken by the wild… There’s plenty of inspiration to find here. Truly creative settings can come to life and become characters of their own. These awesome images can help provide the ideas you need to get started. Plus, it’s one of my own boards. Enjoy!
Characters are the center of any story, and sometimes all you need is one image to bring an entire backstory to life. Plus, you know, the wasteland is a dark and unique place with character possibilities that don’t exist in many other genres. Rusted androids, mutated uglies, raiders with tire-armor… If you need to jump-start your character concepts, dive in and start scrolling down. It always does the trick for me.
If you didn’t find what you were looking for in the other character board, take a peek here. When it comes to good post-apocalyptic Pinterest boards there’s no such thing as having too many.
And if you STILL haven’t found what you’re looking for… Or you just want to look through a variety of post-apocalyptic art, this is a good place to browse.
Last but not least, I present the mother lode. This board has a wide assortment of post-apocalyptic images. It’s also the largest board. So if you just want to sit back and immerse yourself in the gritty apocalypse… this is the place to do it.
I’m sure I’ll add to this list as time goes on. But if you guys enjoyed this post I’d love to hear about it in the comments below. And if anyone has any great boards or resources to share, I’m always looking for stuff to add.
Go forth and conquer,
