    Default Here's a Little Something...UPDTD 10-17-2009

    ..for the world's greatest game developers!

    Yeah, this isn't a Gears wallpaper, but hey, it isn't my fault Epic does not have a general artwork section in their forums.

    Yes, I made everything you see here, including the logo. I tried to get as close to the real thing while keeping a tiny bit of it my own. All work done in Photoshop except for a few lighting/coloring tweaks in Lightroom.

    Thanks Epic, for all the hard work you guys and gals do in bringing us fans some killer games.

    Enjoy!

    UPDATE 10-17-2009

    This is a new wallpaper showcasing my custom fabricated Epic Games coin. The coin's front sports the Epic logo inset and "GEARS OF WAR" and "UNREAL TOURNAMENT" text on the ring in recognition of Epic's two top game series. The back of the coin displays the Unreal technology logo on the inset, and, the ring is overlaid with the text "POWERED BY UNREAL TECHNOLOGY".

    The background is totally custom made by yours truly. I tried putting the coin onto a plain background but nothing really did it justice.

    I made the original project 2560x1600 at 300 dpi if anyone needs that high a resolution for their desktop or for hard copying.

    Enjoy!!

    Awesome Crotale. Everytime I see your work, I think about how Killer that would be as a sticker. Something to put on the back of my truck window every month. Swapping them out with the new ones...

    Dang that would look so cool...

    Wow... amazing as always. You know some cool techniques and you have the skill and talent to know how and when to apply them. It's the little things that make it rock, the color for example, most folks would have went with the blue/gray steel look (I know I would ), but you've made it more interesting just by color choice alone.

    It's almost hard to believe there's no renders in here at all, it's just that good. Then there's the fact that it's polished to a fine sheen, most people would have left it at "good enough", but Cro, you just go and make it the goddamn best it could be, hell I only do that when there's mucho dollars involved.

    No criticisms I can give, it's just that flawless.

    And if you like this one, wait until you see what I have coming next.

    TheRealBigBoss said everything I was thinking. Your Digital works are the only ones I know of, that make me pause for a moment, to not only admire. But to also rap my head around the great care in the details and amount of sheer work that shows in every work of art you post. I hope Epic appreciates your work as much as we do.

    Thanks Zenith Omishu. I kind of feel the need to give back to Epic. Epic is rather unique in the developer world, as they are in my opinion the most generous of all developers.

    Woah... that's like... EPIC!

    Loving the e-glass strands at the top, and the metallic look is way cool.

    Thanks Boss! I tried several color and texture schemes, but this combination won out in the end.
