This Was Home by siligoose3 This Was Home by siligoose3
"Home Sweet Home" doesn't have the same meaning anymore. Damon Baird, Sam Byrne, and Clayton Carmine examine what used to be a heavily populated city. Same sh*t, different friends.

I'm a huge Gears of War fan that's read the books and comics, but I've never actually played the game. I could really use an X-Box!

Love this piece, been using it as my wallpaper for a while, simply amazing! I was wondering where did you get the images for Baird, Sam and Clay from?

Its just a photo-manip of 2 stock GOW3 wallpapers. Characters were cut out, rearranged, and colors tweaked. I didn't create anything here, it was just an 11th-hour entry to the contest.

I agree with the books. Now with Judgment coming out(focused on Baird too), I'm never going to get around to playing any of my unopened X-box games.

I can't believe you've never played the game. The good news is that Xbox consoles are on sale now because of the Holidays. Gears of War 1 sells for only $5 now. Gears 2 is $10-$15 now. Gears 3 is about $29.99 now. Hopefully you'll join us soon!

Thanks! I actually got one for Christmas just after this contest, along with all the GOWs. It was a wonderful holiday!

Thanks! I had never played the games when this contest took place, only watched the cut scenes and read the books. It wasn't until after GOW3 came out that I got my X-box and the games.

Yes. Yes you DO need an xbox! With the Gears of War series completed in the games, I've read all the books, and I am a part of the Epic Games forum, I want more Gears! Like it, love it, need more of it. :D This is a fantastic piece :thumbsup:

Thank you so much for the heads-up! I didn't realize I re-sized it while cropping. That would have really sucked!

Just a further heads up, because I LOVE this entry, and don't want it to be disqualified.

You have the width right, but the height is wrong, making it not the required 16:9 (widescreen) ratio. Unfortunately, just cropping down to a 1440 px height would crop out essential character parts. If you had more scene to the left and right, it would be better to add that in on either side, increasing the width to exactly 2905 px - (2905px x 1634px = 16:9 aspect ratio)

Good luck!
