Los Angeles, Calif., Jan. 4, 2009 - News Release
Pixologic, in cooperation with Epic Games is pleased to announce our "Epic Focus" interview on Gears of War 2. In this interview the lead artists for Gears of War 2 go into great detail about their artistic goals for the game and their techniques used in realizing that vision. Artists included in the interview are: Art Director Chris Perna; Senior Artists Kevin Lanning, Kevin Johnstone, Pete Ellis, Chris Wells, Mark Morgan and Pet Hayes along with Technical Art Director Shane Caudle.
All eight artists provide insights into how they use ZBrush for 60-90% of their work in a production pipeline, and how the software was indispensible for delivering the outstanding detail and high production values for which Gears of War 2 has been recognized. Also included in the interview are over one hundred high resolution stills and screen shots, most of which have never been released to the public before now.
