It’s A Lot Of Work To Make Just One Video Game Poster

When Star Wars: Battlefront II was officially announced, alongside the trailer came the release of this poster image, which you’re going to see a lot of over the next six months. And when you do, be sure to notice how much devil is in its details.

Rather than just being the work of one guy who was told “make a poster”, when it comes to producing key art for a big video game in 2017, more people end up working on it than many entire games.

Duties were split across two companies, with work done at both DICE and production studio Goodbye Kansas. Wojtek Fus was responsible for sketching the top and bottom scenes out, after which an entire team of artists step in to finish the job. Chris Brandstrom and Sven Juhlin modelled the three main characters you see in the centre of the image. Anton Grandert did the VFX you see all over the thing, while Anton Palmqvist also contributed art.

Joseph McLamb and Andree Wallin (along with Grandert) then handled art direction for the final image, while Johan Sundbaum, Viktoria Anselm and Laura Black produced.

As you’re seeing here in these close-ups, there are several areas of the poster which would be incredibly-detailed standalone images in their own right.

But here, they’re just helping out. Think of this as a big Where’s Waldo, only you’re trying to find Rebel Scum instead of a dude in a hat.

All that, just for one image. Video games!

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
