ZOMBIES!!!

A while ago I was given the task by the powers that be to create a new identity for an upcoming title set in the Sniper Elite universe. All I knew was that it was called NAZI ZOMBIE ARMY and I needed to reference Nazi occultism. This was quite fun as all I had to do was build on what was already established in the current brand but to add that HORROR/ZOMBIE element. Below is a bunch of stuff I created along with my team. Enjoy!

How I created the background that is used in game screens:


Step 1: Opposite where I live there are alot of fields. We'd had ALOT of flooding that week so I decided to take some pictures of the sludgy mess it had left in the field...


Step 2: Added some faces into the mud. These are taken from pics of the GUI team...


Step 3: Added in shadows and started to paint over the imagery


Step 4: Applied a colour overlay and more shadows
  

 Step 5: Implented into the game screens with relevent text etc

Also Make sure you check Fran Court and Edouard Groults work. Those guys have helped greatly with the work on NZA. Cheers dudes!

  1. Dude, this might be my most favorite game ever. (or in a very long time) That artwork above and the art in the game is pretty wonderful.

    I wish you would merchandise some of this stuff. So I could buy it.

  2. Hey Michael,

    I do get prints of my artwork done every so often so if you'd like a NZA one let me know. Feel free to email me on luketallica@hotmail.co.uk
