Absolut Mayhem by arpad Absolut Mayhem by arpad
I've always loved the Absolut concept and looked to it as never ending creative process. I don't know why, but I felt like doing this. I missed the agitation of spending a couple of hours (or more heheh) just playing with Photoshop. The idea started with an eclipse thing, but I guess its a "been there, done that" thing. Then time started flying and ended up with this absolut judgment day.. I guess mayhem soms it all. I am not a destroyer myself but, hey, sometimes we got to let it go. This is how it turned out.

This is 100% pure Photoshop. Textures made with the standard ps brushes (played around with F5 brush controls) and the cracks and flairs were made with a small Wacom Volito.

Tell me what do you think of that, once more, feedback is necessary. Thanks,

arpad

it looks rather plane. but the concept is nice. more three-dimensionality is necessary!

Nice. Though I think you could've taken the concept further. I didn't realize what the bottle was doing until I really looked closely at it.

Well the whole idea was to make people take a closer look.
As for the concept, I didn't want anything too complicated, but yeah.. maybe a litlle more...finished? :) Thanks for being constructive. These are my favourite comments, they make me think about things that sometimes I do not see :hug:

No. That's cool. It's hard to know sometimes what the artist's intentions were. It's still a great job. Looks just like a real Absolut ad.
