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.

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.
