I thought I would stop by this page just to see other Culture inspired art and saw I had been made an admin (I remember being asked about this a while ago and said yes but I have been so busy I have forgotten about it).
I thought I would send out this blog entry as an introduction, I am a huge Iain M. Banks fan, and Consider Phlebas is my favourite story, although I love Excession too.

I am VERY unfamiliar with being an admin of a Deviantart page but I will do my best to pick up bits here and there to help generate some nice content for fans of Banks's work to look at.

I saw someone say this page is very quiet, hopefully it won't be for long and fans of The Culture can get to look at images created by the minds that were inspired by Iain M. Banks.
R.I.P
Thought I'd let everyone know that I've located some IMB Culture fan-fiction hosted on archiveofourown.org
So check it out. There are currently 13 related stories on there. Here's the link:

This group indexes art and fanfiction derived from Iain M Banks astounding Culture novels. Hopefully a repository for culture-based work will inspire more artists and writers to produce images and words around...

Massive GSV's, small(ish) ROU's, the blinding annihilation of gridfire, slowly turning orbitals, snarky drones, shape-shifting Idiran spies, alluring Special Circumstances agents, mysterious Excessions, pulsing Effectors, nebulous Avatars, and whatever else your... Minds... can come up with.

Does anybody know the location or existence of a Dweller drawing? Not a Culture species, per say, but a gas-dweller species from a fantastic (is there any other kind of Banks sci-fi?) Banks novel called ‘The Algebraist’. They are the oldest known beings in the galaxy (version) having existed almost 10 billion years. They are funny, wise, irreverent, clever, impulsive, strange, decadent and immensely knowledgeable. Love to see an artist’s version of these creatures...

Not allowed to add to the gallery; a bit strange as a 'contributor'

Anyway, here's the Sleeper

How do we submit art to this group? It seems there's little new stuff coming in and overtime I try and submit, it's rejected on time out rather than human input?

Wow! Is this where it begins? I'm all washed up with nothing to contribute but if someone can fix me up with a primitive form of Quicknow maybe I'll up my game.

Hi - I thought I'd join this group to contribute culture paintings - I submitted one, but nothing's happened - maybe I misunderstood how this works? Let me know - Cheers!

Hi!

Sorry that no-one has gotten back to you sooner.
On your page you can select 'add to group' and you can type our groups name and that will submit it for review for inclusion to the page.

I hope this helps :)

Hi - No problem!
I used to participate in the art community at Renderosity, but this seems unfathomably complex in comparison! :)
