Here's my entry for the GOW art contest and first attempt at drawing anything Gears related. I couldn't pass up the opportunity on a contest involving one of my favorite video game franchises. Plus there's 100 prizes that are all pretty damn cool so here's hoping I win something.
I listened to the Gears 3 soundtrack the entire time I whipped this out and it helped inspire a ton, especially "Finally a Tomorrow". It's going to be sad seeing this series end but hopefully I'm wrong and there's more planned for the C.o.G. in the future.
I wont get too wordy about my process with this here, so if you curious about that check out my blog post about it here ---> [link]
Hope you all dig it.

I am very proud of this piece seeing how I went through all kinds of mess to get it done in time. Several computer crashes, working everyday till the contest deadline and worst of all, forcing myself not to play Gears 3 until after I finished. So yeah super looking forward to that.
Anyway I hope you guys like it. The only thing that's not digitally painted by me is the background behind Marcus Fenix. Took about I dunno 20+ hours Done in Photoshop CS2 with Medium Wacom Tablet.
