Gratuitous Space Battles
Well, the brief was ace! It was to literally translate the name of the game into a look for the site, as lets face it, Gratuitous Space Battles is somewhat self explanatory, so the homepage had to kick as much ass as the name! It had to be gratuitous, set in space and portray gratuitous space battles ;)
Well, as you most of you know, and those who don't can soon surmise from the pages of Fully Illustrated, I love sci-fi, and especially sci-fi themed games, so this was going to be nothing short of a blast from the second Photoshop was booted up. As usual, I spent a large chunk of time creating the scene you see in the background. This was initially made up with elements from the game, followed by hours of toning, tinting, blending and mixing in lots textures to tie in the whole scene. The page had to feel alive with action. Following on from here I then themed all the content to follow suit and worked on making the main homepage a literal hub for all things GSB related. Great little project!
This is the ‘green with envy’ Stats Envy monster for a new gaming stats site due out later this year. It was a really fun little brief to create an angry, envious little green monster, just the kind of project I like :) I really do love illustration!
Its been many years since I've received a brief asking for some 'none cartoon' illustration, so I really enjoyed sinking my teeth into this one.
