View Full Version : Gears Cole Train Wallpaper
01-18-2009, 06:09 AM
Here is a little gift to all the "Cole Train" fans out there. Cole is a composite lineart I put together and painted. Tools used were Photoshop, Wacom Tablet, and Painter. Finalization done in Lightroom.
If anyone wishes to use any part or all of this image for a boxart, feel free to do so but please credit me or else I'll be really ticked. I may even share a single layer .PSD sans titling if you ask nicely in a PM and promise not to give out the file or untitled imagery. I put several weeks of work into this and am willing to share as long as the terms of my copyright are not violated.

You should create some artwork with Baird, Cole, Marcus and Dom in it and make a box out of it.
Great work, you're very talented.

Hey, mind posting that Gears 2 wallpaper again? 'Tis a shame that you took it off.Thanks. I'll see if I can find that Gears 2 wallpaper you are inferring to. I may have deleted that project from my hard drive.
EDIT:/Not sure if I want to go down this road again, as it was not pretty the first time, but since you requested it, here it is. I downsized my previous version to 1920x1200 (down from 5120x3200) and desaturated it a bit. I also gave it a faux-HDR treatment and finalized it in Lightroom. Other than that, it is the same image I linearted and repainted last summer. The initial linearting and repainting took about 25 hours, which I had spread over two days. I only made minor changes to the original artwork created by Epic Games, so I can only take credit for repainting the piece, but not creating it.

Haha, thanks dude. I don't really care what others were saying about it, and neither should you.

Yeah, I know. It was such as slap in the face after explaining my process and what I did, only to be told that I only used a filter or two. But yeah, I need thicker skin.
