Brothers to the End by HoustonSharp Brothers to the End by HoustonSharp
Here's my entry for the Gears 3 Contest.

I initially wanted to do a more grotesque and brutal theme for this same subject matter, but then I read the rules. :/

So i tried to stick with my initial idea but make it more of an homage than a bloodbath.

This image was painted in about 3 days, almost 4. Differentiating from my normal workflow, I used absolutely no line work on this. I just started blocking in the forms and rendered them. It was a fun process that i want to do more often.

Download for full-res!

I will upload some higher-res crops of this image after the contest, so check my gallery.

Good luck to all in the contest, I've seen some pretty awesome stuff so far.

Anthony, Ben, and Clayton Carmine.

Brothers to the End

Man I love this artwork so much. It looks incredible. Really captures what all of us Carmine faithful love so much. I'd so love to get this blown up and put on a wall..... don't think my fiance wants it up there though. But it will happen sometime!

haha, thanks man. Just try your hardest to convince your fiance. "If you don't love the Carmines, then you don't love me."

Anthony and Clayton were the best; Ben was going to die, it was inevitable. the rookie always perishes.

I've always thought "Brothers to the End" always tied in with Marcus on Dom's relationship as war buddies, until I saw this piece. I guess it really does span farther then just those two. You did exceptionally well with the background and foreground of this picture. I really enjoy how the mood is set in when you added Anthony and Benjamin into the two sides of Clayton: I get a feeling of innocence, but a lot of vengeance when I look into the eyes of Clay's helmet. I hope your entry does (did) well in the conest!
