Fan Friday: Depth of Field

No, curtail your excitement. No need to check your clocks as it's still Thursday; you still have one more day of work before the weekend. But somehow the Fan Friday last week slipped through the cracks, so I'm reporting on it now.

As usual it has some fan art. There's some art by Colm that looks quite nice, though there's a little controversy on the forums because some feel that putting images together in Photoshop and recoloring them shouldn't get a spotlight. Personally I feel it looks much better than anything I could cook up in Photoshop; I think people are underestimating the amount of work and talent it takes to do such things. There's also a report on an unofficial April Fan Art Contest, where community members submit art for the rest of the community to vote on. And Ion-Silental was the winner.

As usual the most interesting part of the Fan Friday is the Developer Corner though, where we get a little sneak peak into what's in development. This time they have a brief video showcasing a conversation to demonstrate a depth of field effect (where things in the distance look a bit blurry).

They also make a brief note of the European Press Showcase that EA held in London, showing a couple of screenshots from the event (which we've already seen in the various articles):

And finally they added a couple of new avatars to the forums. :


Read the full Fan Friday on the official site and see you tomorrow for this week's Friday update.
