Gears of War 3 - Splatter by CoreyBrown Gears of War 3 - Splatter by CoreyBrown
Entry #2.

So far everyone, I have had an excellent time deciding, sketching and creating these illustrations for not only this contest, but for the games fan art as well. This in particular piece I decided that I wanted to do something I have not done yet... Which has now become my favorite illustration for Gears of War I have done yet :P

Inspired by the gameplay of GoW3, I decided to take a more simplistic approach to my second entry. I knew I wanted to do another Marcus piece, and this one would have him in just black and white. The splatter effect I did, along with the hidden #3 came after... after I had already painted up a background for this piece and then tossed it lol. Happens I guess : / Gave me more practice on the positive side.

Tried doing this piece without the blue glow to his armor and gun, however I rather like it, so I kept it haha.

I believe I will try to get around to doing a 3rd entry to this contest, but as we all know these things take a lot of time. Regardless to weather or not I get to another GoW3 piece, I'd like to thank the Gears of War team for coming up with this contest and DA for hosting it.

Again, another piece that required some sleep deprivation and RedBull action :D

Photoshop CS5, Wacom Tablet.

Thanks for viewing and enjoy!

saw someone else do this or something similar

Ya it does look similar lol. It is part of a clip found on the internet for Gow3. I actually did not see this posting, had I of it probably would have made me choose another concept for an illustration lol.
Regardless, I guess it will be up to the judges to hopefully place one of ours :D

Everyone is going ALL OUT with these massive full coloured submissions. Yet you went the opposite direction, and went after the simplicity, and gorgeousness of line art. This is probably one of my favorite entries so far!!! THIS ONE i'd definitely have as a wallpaper! Amazing work!

Thank you VERY much for the kind words! I tried... lol. Ya, thats actually the idea behind this piece. I wanted something that was mild in a visual aspect (the simplicity of this one) yet interesting, someone would know exactly what it was speaking about at first glance. You nailed it right on the head!

Fantastic job! I wish I could enter the contest but I'm only 16... Oh well. I'll support the game by buying and no lifing EVERYTHING.
But yes great job and I like the pose you gave for Marcus along with the abstract coloring.

Thank you for the kind words

I REALLY wanted to go to the local Microsoft store and go to their tournament with my brother but its a school night so my mom said no. I'll just ditch the last class periods of the day after my lunch period to go and get it with my uncle.

I am so excited and I've been playing Gears 2 for practice. Anyone who isn't excited for this game is beyond retardation.
Your welcome :).
