It's weird, but I kind of enjoy - at least in Core - the characters doing their business in this backgroundless sea of white. It calls to mind - to my crazy mind, anyway - Legend's flexibility with theme and setting. Not that two-page spreads aren't pretty, mind you...

I think the class and race artwork might be best for that backgroundless style since it lets the player place it in any setting they can imagine, but I think I would love to see some more spread pages in the GM tools and encounters sections to maybe help inspire prospective GMs for their own games.

So, is there going to be an Art Gallery on the site after it's revamped?

I love those little line-art drawings that are in the margins. Those things are great, we need many more of them. They illustrate the subject without distracting, they're thematically cool because they look like something that an adventurer might have doodled in his adventure book, and I imagine we get them a good bit cheaper and faster than full art, although I don't know by how much.
Every game should have those things, really.

We also need art for the races, although I reckon everybody knew that, and since the Kickstarter is getting some pretty good funding we can probably afford to go with a full page art at the start of each chapter, which would be cool.

We've been considering doing a line-up of all the iconics - since they cover all the base races, that would let people know the relative sizes of the races.

Would people like illustrations for extra tracks/racial tracks, too?

Of course. I feel that the extra tracks tend to have more raw flavor to them than the normal tracks. Elementalist is all about a theme, necromancer is very iconic, and the various racial tracks are very distinct.

That sounds good to me.

I would. Maybe smaller ones would suffice though? I dunno.

I'd rather see more art than big art, especially where there are so many things that need or could really benefit from illustration. As much fun as full-page art is, it's also going to gobble up what could have been multiple lesser images.

They do? Is the monk a gnome, then?

I have noticed that besides the class portrait, there are no pictures of the demon paladin, while there are several other "sketch" pictures of all the other classes.

Yes and yes. I think maybe short writeups of them would be cool, too.

Yes to all of the above, And I would also enjoy some more art of them doing stuff together. Be it fighting, escaping, or maybe a period of relaxing/joking around.

what can I see find the art style of the book pleasing to the eyes.

Yeah, artwork for the extra and racial tracks would be great, though art for the more generic ones that are supplementary (utter brute) wouldn't make a lot of sense.

I don't know, I kind of want to see what that cyborg gnome from hell would look like.
