I'm working on retheming a card game. I lack the necessary artistic skills to create my own images, so I'm looking for artwork I can use.

In particular, I need:

A space background
Planets (ideally five or more different types, but all similar) (Possibly a water world, a gas planet, a planet with rings, a Terra-like planet and a desolate rocky planet)

Symbols (all same size and style)
A Fuel symbol
A Water symbol
A Mechanic symbol
A Money symbol
A Generic "thing" symbol (as in choose either Fuel, Water or Mechanic)
A Victory Point symbol

I appreciate anyone who can point me in the right direction and/or give me some suggestions.

For icons, game-icons.net is usually my first stop.

For space and planet pics, a simple search for 'public domain planet pictures' or something along those lines should yield something. I managed to find these two links pretty quickly:

I highly recommend using http://game-icons.net/ if you can.

They are easily usable as is, or inverted with any simple image editing program.

A few examples for what you're looking for:

- Water : http://game-icons.net/lorc/originals/at-sea.html
- Money : http://game-icons.net/delapouite/originals/banknote.html
- Point : http://game-icons.net/delapouite/originals/rupee.html
- Fuel : http://game-icons.net/delapouite/originals/oil-rig.html
