The Great War drove warfare to new heights. Sometimes quite literally: airplanes for the first time entered the war theater. At first, the role of the canvas-over-wood biplanes and triplanes was air reconnaissance, with pilots occasionally emptying revolvers at their counterparts or throwing metal darts into trenches. Later, bomber and fighter planes emerged - the start of aerial warfare as we know it. Needless to say, artists quickly picked up on the romantic heroism of the aerial 'dogfight', developing an artistic tradition in aviation art that lasts until today. 'Air Superiority', a Battlefield 1 concept art piece by EA DICE Senior Concept Artist Robert Sammelin, easily fits that tradition, showing dynamic air combat against a glorious sky.
Battlefield 1 is a first person shooter game in the Battlefield-series, made by EA DICE in Stockholm and first released Fall 2016. The game is set in World War I, allowing for both gritty details from the gruesome fighting in that war, but also weapons and fighting styles that are as far apart as aiming flame throwers at tanks, and hitting soldiers with shovels. Visually, the game takes its cues from a wide range of media: WWI-era photographs and film, but also post-war romanticized paintings, or the 'Lawrence of Arabia' movie.
