If it’s not robots then it’s those end of the world video games and movies. I’ve been hooked on Fall Out 3, and had recently watched a film called The Road (Yes that morbid yet superb movie with Viggo Mortensen in). With these post apocalyptic images firmly implanted into my head I thought I would see if I could create my very own end of days. The hardest part of creating this image was spending hours trawling through stock photos trying to piece together images like a jigsaw puzzle. For it to really work each image had to be in the right perspective and shade to everything else. The elements from each stock photo were carefully cut out (not too precise though as I needed to leave a little bit of a trim so it would give me the room to blend things in) & using the hue and saturation I was able to strip away a lot of the unwanted colour which helped give it that morbid feel I was going for. After a few more hours of tinkering I added shadows and some textured layers (Smoke being the first and film grain being the second). Finally to bring the whole scene together a simple dull grey green was overlayed over the whole document.
