No Hope by NickNightshade No Hope by NickNightshade
"Sometimes I wonder if we ever really stood a chance against the Locust, or if we were simply too blinded by our arrogance to understand the inexorable truth.

Humanity cannot survive this war. I am beginning to doubt we ever could."

-Scratched on bulkhead of CNV Sovereign

This piece took about 30+ hours and is the biggest undertaking I have ever attempted. A labor of love but I think it will give you all something to look at for awhile. So rev up those Lancers and enjoy.

I know, right? Haven't played the newest one but I thought 3 was the best of the series that I've played.

I have the newest one, but i think the gears 3 is the best.
Judgement tells the story of the beggining of the gears, and the protagonist is Baird,
and when you finish it, there is another chapter "aftermath", is cool too.
I thought the 3rd is better because it's harder and more exciting, like when Dom dies. )':

I feel that's the inherent challenge of creating a prequel after a series has concluded: not only are you trying to outdo the original in terms of gameplay, but your story has certain restrictions because we already know which characters live and die.

great composition and lighting, perhaps the faces on the Brumak and Corpsers couldve used another pass to get proportions right! But easily my favourite entry! Well Done!

Thanks man! I really struggled to get their faces right, especially the Brumak, and I had trouble finding the precise reference for that angle so I kind of had to do a combination of improvising and picking something I thought looked cool. Glad you like it though!

Crazy wonderful piece, man. Someone should be paying you to draw Lovecraft beasties like this. I totally believe the scale of it and it's actually kind of terrifying. Nice work!
