The Process, Narrated
I used two video game covers to create this mashup. Call of Duty Black Ops and Justice League Heroes. I found the images of these respective game covers that I liked and downloaded them. I dragged them into Photoshop from finder. I created new layers for each image. To combine the texts, I cut “heroes” from its layer and pasted it on top of “Ghosts”. I simply replaced heroes with ghosts. I did the same thing for the image of superman and batman. Using the box tool, I selected their bodies and cut it from its original layer and then pasted onto this new layer over the Call of Duty soldier image. I repeated this process for the rating pending, “infinity ward”, and “Activision”. I dragged each image off google and pasted it onto this layer. I minimized each image so it would appear that it was one image with the justice league heroes. Here a few photos to document my process.
