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!
As I had been illustrating for about 3-4 years for 3T productions they asked me to create a 4ft long print containing as many characters as I could find that I had created during this time. This piece still hangs in the entrance hall to the second floor.
I was rather excited to find 3 of my sites in the cover feature of this months issue of Web Designer Magazine!
