Here are some example of my abilities with Adobe Photoshop. This all stems from
a project I had to do for my MSc course. We were asked to pick a theme and to make
a flash video (which you can find in the "flash" section of this website,) and three
photoshopped images based on this theme. We could pick anything we wanted within
reason. Whilst my fellow students picked safer, more mundane topics I myself chose
to a mock up of what a government agency might publish in the event of a zombie
outbreak. Remember to click the images for larger versions.
The first image you can see here is the logo I designed. ZSI stands for "Zombie
Survival Information" and the whole logo is a allegory parodying the swine flu pandemic
of late 2009. This was mostly constructed within Adobe Photoshop with only one outside
image used. I took advantage of vector graphics and the text editor to make the
logo. I tried to make the logo look like a creepy eyeball. The zombies themselves
are lines created from a popular Resident Evil 2 promotional policeman from several
years ago, although I did have to chop off his hat.
Here is a copy of the original Resident Evil 2 asset just to show you how different
the original looks.
Next up we have a popular Nottingham landmark, Nottingham castle – but zombified!
I added the sky and made it reddish as well all the zombies you can see who are
all quite famous in their own way on the internet. One of them is even from a popular
Romero movie if you are eagle eyed enough to spot him.
Last but not least, we have a demon nanna you may or may not recognise from a certain
breakfast cereal advertising campaign. It’s surprising how easy it was to
turn her from a loving grandmother to a cannibalistic hell fiend. You really can’t
tell I scanned the image in off a cereal box at all.
