ENEMIES TO THE END by Esau13 ENEMIES TO THE END by Esau13
Gears of War 3 Contest

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.

Wish me Luck! :)

Okay, this is very creative. I love how the impulsion is pouring on a gear to separate the two pictures. Honestly though, I have to say I'm in love with the Locust side of the pic. Guess you can say I'm a sucker for the monsters/bad guys haha! I absolutely love the Locusts 'hive', I find it suite beautiful. All the carved details in their architecture, hidden traps, and the scenery. Water surrounded by ancient stone, isn't that just lovely?

AAANYWAYS, fantastic work on this, keep it up!!

Lol I thought there were some good ones that where better than mine that could win the grand prize. However I do think I was robbed by not even being picked to be in the top hundred.
