Frag Out by ChemicalAlia Frag Out by ChemicalAlia
Hooray, I'm finished! I added and changed some things, based on some feedback from friends and ideas I had early on. Real men paint their own lens flares, lol.

It's Marcus, and he's here to sell some cookies.

Yeah, in my original thumbnails I was debating having like a corpser's leg or the bottom of a monster in the foreground in front of Marcus. I decided against it for the overall composition of the piece and minimizing clutter and what not, since it would have covered up a lot of the simpler background.

One thing that's always fun in Gears games is how you can skip around while spinning the grenades.


It's so goofy. I love it.

Hope I can explain better, lol. He is ignoring the wretches by tossing a grenade at something larger, of which only its shadow is shown.

I've always found it looks better to create your own effects then to use a standard Photoshop one whenever possible.

And the final version is really great looking! Good luck with the contest!
