“What is Creative Mondays?
Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.
So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”
As you can plainly see from this week’s Creative Mondays piece it’s all about the PC game Battlefield 3. I recently purchases a new laptop for my design work but looking at the specs I couldn’t help but give one of the latest (and greatest) games a try. The game is beautiful and its a credit to the developers that they manage to keep the game looking stunning on relatively low specifications.
Needless to say, this game took up a chunk of my weekend and it’s inhabited my creative conscience ever since. The shot you see is an actual screenshot from the game with a couple of fighter jets (also from the game) added in, I applied a great deal of grunge effects, digital erosion (or whatever you want to call it) and altered the levels significantly. I’ve already got some ideas about creating a poster with a BF3 theme and this was a nice way to experiment with some layering and texturing.
Oh and I got the Battlefield 3 font from Alex Gillis over on DeviantArt.
