Since its launch over a year ago The Studio has brought some of the world’s most exciting artists into the digital world of the PS3, creating bespoke themes and icons which have transformed the look of your XMB. One of these artists, and in fact one of the first featured on The Studio, is illustrator Kristian Hammerstad based in Oslo, whose distinctive ‘Hungry Eyes’ theme became an early hit. He is now back, this time with his take on the Killzone franchise.
Hand-drawn in striking blood-red, black and white, Kristian’s design for this dynamic theme is influenced by all aspects of pop culture. “I draw inspiration from a million different things” he told us, “but perhaps mainly comics and films. For this particular theme the main inspiration was of course also the Killzone game.”
Bringing to life the powerful momentum of the marching army, this is certainly one of The Studio’s most striking themes to date. In celebration of that fact we are also giving you the chance to own a limited edition print of the artwork – head over to the community forum to find out more!
