Marcus Can Dance?

Near the end of 2008, film animator Tal Peleg made a video with one of his favorite game characters, Marcus Fenix from Gears of War. Tal’s career consisted mainly of film, feature animation and VFX. Soon after this video was made, Tal made the jump to games, working on Dead Space 2. He then joined Naughty Dog as a Senior Cinematic Animator. The video was a big hit here at Epic, so we decided to post it for Gears of War Fans.

Tal said, “Around fall of 2008 I rigged and animated this to the track of UT3’s “Go Down” (3DSmax). It wasn’t very intuitive to animate with unfortunately, but I thought it reached a fairly presentable point. Seems like it meshes well as Marcus dances to one of the more awesome techno tracks of the Unreal universe.”

Gears of War and Minecraft!

Many of our community members are fans of both Gears of War and Minecraft. In January, we saw our first Gears of War map in Minecraft, Gridlock. Since then, the community has created Blood Drive, Depths and even started making statues of Gears of War characters, weapons and Epic Games logos.

“Ninja Taco” made a Clayton Carmine Statue and even gave a tutorial on how to create it. Blue Dodger from the Epic Games forum has created a lot of the Gears of War items in Minecraft and he shows them off in THIS thread.

Have you made or seen any content from any of our games created in Minecraft? Let us know in the comments here or on Facebook! We’ll choose ten random repliers on Monday, September 24 to receive Minecraft Skin Pack 2 containing four Gears of War Characters!

Hand Drawn Marcus Fenix T-Shirt

Hand Drawn Marcus Fenix T-ShirtSkise from the Italian Epic Gamers community has a friend who is a tattoo and traditional artist. Alessia Montisci (aka Fava) decided to surprise Skise with this amazing hand drawn Marcus Fenix t-shirt. After she sketched the Marcus images onto the shirt, she used black fabric ink to go over the lines and shading to make it permanent.

I’m sure Skise will cherish this one of a kind Gears of War item for years to come. You can see more of Alessia’s artwork on her Facebook page. Alessia would also like to thank Tattooist Serci Luigi for his dedication to Tattoo Art.

Alessia is also a fan of another Unreal Engine 3 game, Mortal Kombat. See the gallery below for her amazing Mortal Kombat Art.
