[Icehouse] Idea for Wiki Art

Does anyone here think it would be useful to have "standard" artwork on
the wiki for various pieces, colors, and configurations?

I am thinking, basically, of the following:
* One each of every color large, medium, and small; from above and from
* Nests in every transparent color; from above and from side
* Trees in every color; from above and from side (which would be very
similar-looking to nests, from above--maybe distinguish nests by NOT
showing pips on the small and medium, but show them in a tree?)

This would have the benefit of making it very easy to show a layout of
any board on a grid, or to show movement or placement examples, or even
to use as clip art to make more complex elements (ex: an RGB tree) which
would, of course, be uploaded as unique files (unless we can use DHTML
layers in the wiki code--I doubt it).

We could also move towards "standardizing" artwork across the wiki--a
low priority, but the "professional" thing to do in the long run.

It really wouldn't take me very long... but maybe someone who's a
professional graphic artist would like the honor? I'd use the TH set
photos on LooneyLabs.com for color reference, slightly tweaking colors
like blue and purple to improve their "transparency" for applications
like the nest. Basically, look at the art in Chicken Run--that's what
you'll get, if I do it myself.

Thoughts? Volunteers? Additional standard art ideas?
