To The End by MATT-A-NASHI To The End by MATT-A-NASHI
Gears of War 3. (character) Marcus Fenix. Brothers to the end. The mix of sci fi/ barbarian warriors in the GOW designs are fantastic! And the emotional impact of 'the realities of war' is really captured as the story unfolds. Those elements influenced this piece.

Thanks, mostly it was uses as symbolism (Cog necklace) - the strong tie Marcus has with his brothers in arms, The Cogs.
Yeah, past all the great action/creatures/tech, its the heart of the story that keeps people riveted!

Love this, well done. I'm seeing him going back for Dom's tags here... is that right, or is it just random? Either way, a powerful piece and I agree with you 100%, it's the emotions behind this game that drew me to it in the first place.

Thanks! I usually prefer simplicity in my work. But considering the nature of GOW, it felt right.

Great work on this piece! My only critique is that the fingers look a little stubby, but the coloring and the composition are great.
