The Last Stand by Sama-mj The Last Stand by Sama-mj
Artist: Matthew J Sama

The gears of war trilogy has always given an emotive build toward a climatic brawl which we know will not go without sacrifice, whether it be for victory or in vain. I tried to visualize this through a peak moment in battle where courage borderlines self-sacrifice.

I like this piece! I kind of reminds me of a gray scaled frank miller with splashes of color like sin city. It has a nice vector charm to it and the scale is nice. I kind of think some elements seem to float in the image due to the ground having limited shading and only seems to have texture lines. Other than that I think you did an outstanding job!

Thanks!!! I was definately influenced on Miller's Batman Works. Really enjoy the gritty-ness he's able to create with 3 colors, simple detailing, and splatters.

thanks again, appreciated! I put a lot of days / hours into trying to make the aesthetic more unique with the graphic novelish style.
