Awesome Gears of War Fan Art

Gears of War 3 has been met with universal acclaim, garning an average of 91 on metacritic. The two previous titles in the series have netted near perfect scores too, with the first Gears of War standing out as one of the most epic third person shooters available on a gaming console.

The people who play it love it and recently deviantART held a content, Gears/Artists United, that asked its members to capture the essence of Gears of War in the form of wallpaper.

The first prize was set at USD 10,000, a Gears of War 3 limited edition console, and deviantART swag. The competition ended on September 28th, with 100 semi-finalists having been chosen by deviantART staff. Have a look at some of the fantastic submissions after the jump.

Creative Products Ads You May Not Have Seen

As seen in the previous post, there are some supremely creative people out there. As part of the unwashed not-so-creative masses, it’s inspiring to see the imaginative content that can be made. This holds true for advertising – I have become desensitized to it, and try to avoid all the bland, run-of-the-mill stuff. However, these incredible examples of product advertisements from deviantART that you might not have seen give you an idea on how creative advertising can be.
