Powerhouse Animation Studios – Injustice 2

 

This post originally appeared on the Powerhouse Animation blog.

Powerhouse Animation teamed up yet again with Platform LA to create a cinematic social media ad campaign for the new NetherRealm Studios fighting game, Injustice 2. With fighters based on the original DC superhero pantheon, Injustice 2 reimagines your favorite characters in unusual alliances.

The Powerhouse Animation team perfected the original storyboards, adding everything from beautifully painted touches to atmospheric animation. Their Injustice 2 campaign takes the highly polished quality of the team’s motion comics and combines it with the brevity necessary for internet ads.

The result: stunning, eye-catching banners. Powerhouse Animation used Photoshop to embellish the original client storyboards and paintings and then animated & finalized the scenes in After Effects, adding special effects and a high-level polish to each ad.

Brian Allen: Boy Scouts of America

Brian Allen was commissioned by the Boy Scouts of America to create these illustrations.

Brian elaborates about the project:

“I was thrilled recently to work with Boy Scouts of America illustrating their Bear, Wolf, and Tiger mascots for a catalog that went out to all troops nationwide.

We created illustrations that blended real studio photos of kids in Boy Scouts gear and drawn into a comic book background. The marketing team hired me to reinvent the existing mascot illustrations in my own style. I was a Cub Scout long ago, so it was a lot of fun to leave a little mark on the organization.”
