Gears of War

Here's a piece I did for the Gears of War Sourcebook ( it's out on the stands right now). Click here to see the finished version.

Hey Brian, I want ask you something. I wasn't accepted to an art school, because of my not-so-good average grade and now I am thinking should I continue drawing. Deep down inside I know I won't. So I want to ask you this:

Did you have any professional training in art ? Or are you self-taught ?

Deep down inside I know I will somehow.

Sorry... ^__^

Thanks for the compliments! This piece was so different from anything I get to do on Star Wars. No restrictions on how violent to make this thing-- definitely had a lot of freedom on this piece.

Hey Nestor,

Sorry to hear about Art School. Don't be too down on yourself though, sometimes these moments of adversity show us what we really want in life.

I went to school but didn't learn too much about drawing while I was there. I'm pretty much self taught-- actually all the artists I look up to are also self taught. Adam Hughes, Travis Charest, Eric Canete, these guys are phenomenal talents. I think if this is something you truly love and are meant to do, you'll find a way to make it work. After all making art is like feeding your soul-- you would do it regardless of whether or not anyone paid you to do it. You know what I mean?

I know the feeling. It is just that my other huge passion in life is films and film making and it is really tempting. The thing about illustration is that I just want to learn how to draw and paint. Producing art doesn't have to be my job in the future. But my one of my main goals in life is to have an ability to draw. It is really hard to choose but I guess being multi-talented is not bad.

Mr. Ching: Wow! After the style of Star Wars, this piece is shocking; also, i love the sketches.
