The Dark Lens

Posted by Alex

These images are from photographer Cedric Delsaux’s Dark Lens series. The project has been around for a while but a new set of images was just released. World Famous Design Junkies has a great write up of the history of the project. They detail the three waves of content releases and go into a little more detail.

It’s brilliant because it’s often really subtle. As if it’s just natural that these characters are living and breathing in that world, and he happened to take a photo of them.

I wonder how they’re being rendered in; a pretty cool process I’m sure.

There are quite a few Star Wars composites popping up around the net, this is by far some of the best work I’ve seen. The ATAT is awesome!

I was scrolling through the blog and thinking of how grateful (once again) I am to ISO50 for mentioning it when I realized it’s based in my very own Minneapolis. Hurrah!

I think one of the main reasons I like this so much is that it’s exactly what I like so much about Halo; futuristic stuff set in the grit of reality.

I’m generally bothered by the fact that in most science fiction, all that exists are space ships and space ports. I was really happy in Starwars II, we got to see a bit more of the lower levels of society; take a break from star ships and see alien bars.

This is what will make Outskirts from Halo 2 one of my favorite video game levels ever; when a super-soldier is defending the earth against evil aliens, he’ll do it from the shadows of run down apartment buildings and bombed out parking garages thank-you-very-much.
