Finish on Hatebreed
This was fun. I kept the lesser important aspects simple and rough, such as the bodies. I feel it worked appropriately to the bands aggressive sound. Despite the roughness, there's enough sculptural detail in the faces to give the piece the solid look it needs. The T-shirt slogan Jasta wears was an idea I had joked about with writer Chris Mitchell. We later decided it would be fun to include it: While researching the band, the majority of online images featured the band in black shirts -- and some with similar verb-age. The type font on the slogan is called "bluecake," and was done using a Photoshop technique of a cloning stamp set to "lighten" at 100%. I had the type reversed out of a black box scaled to the desired size in Freehand. I then imported the box into the image over to the far right -- what would be considered "off the page." Then using the cloning stamp, I lightened the words into the t-shirt -- then simply cropped out the black box.
