Gears of War by CrescentDebris Gears of War by CrescentDebris
My entry for the Gears of War 3 art contest being held here on dA. The locust appear on the left in the form of a Brumak and Reaver. They are a bit darker, both to fit in with the dark feel of the original game and also to be more subtle as they are, for the majority of Gears 3, sort of "in the background". There's a new threat. That's where the focus is. So Marcus is looking their direction. You'll see the stalks, a drudge, and a drone busting out of the ground which I liked a lot on Gears 3. It's like the Grub Hole Express.

As for Marcus himself I put him in cover, which is obviously a huge part of the series. His right boot has bloodstains thanks to the almightly "curb-stomp". And lastly, to contrast from all other promotional material for the game, I chose not to feature the Lancer or Retro Lancer as the star weapon. The Longshot has always been a fan favorite and I think it needs some love.

Technical: 100% done in GIMP. Default Round Brush. During the final polish I took some photos of metal, gravel and bricks around here on some "Overlay" layers for a bit more texture.

That's really amazing. I really like how it's light on one side with the Gears 3 theme, but it looks like Gears 1 on the left

You can feel the tension from this picture just by seeing the different shades you used, and the mood that was set up too.
In my fav's already

Oh my goodness, you got Marcus' face right :highfive:. Very well done, great detail. Shame the cover is so darn tiny though. LOL. I'm sure he'll get out of it, he's been in worse situation after all :XD:.

This is a good piece of work, good lighting. I like the grainy style of this, gives the feel of a regular painting. Always good to see more artists using GIMP. :)
