Happy Holidays from the Team Epic Gamers!

Threw this out for the Epic Games community... SANTA COG! With the new "Santa Gear" outfit in the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, I thought this was a nice concept to color Clay's outfit with the red color. :)



Merry Christmas, and hope you guys have a Happy New Year.

Alphonse Elric

My take on the Fullmetal Alchemist character, "Alphonse Elric." Thought it would be nice to give this piece a rough, and "metallic" look.



Done on Photoshop.

Take on RAAM's Shadow


In honor of the release of RAAM’s Shadow, I made a quick paint for the Epic Games community. Thought it would be awesome to throw out something that RAAM's good at: kicking COG butt!

Introducing the Team Epic Gamers!

Today, Epic Games introduced a new community-focused program, called the "Epic Gamers." Within that, there are the "Team Epic Gamers," highlighting key leaders and aspiring individuals within different disciplines, whether it be art, community management, or events. They will also work closely with Epic Games to create experiences for fellow gamers.

That said, I am proud to say, that I am one of the founding members, along with 4 other amazing people. I traveled to the Epic Games studio, met with the other Team Epic Gamers, and thought of awesome stuff for you, the community. That, and we spent a good amount of time on Gears of War 3. :)




For more info, go to the official Epic Games Community Page.

Again, I am honored to be part of such a talented team, and I hope that I am able to bring out new and exciting experiences for you all.

"Gears of Fan" Community Spotlight

Raczilla, the Epic Games Community Manager, approached me one day and asked me... "Hey, I'd love to feature some of your stuff."

"Sure, why not?" I answered.  Already, my mind was blown. I'm surprised that the fan art that I have been throwing out has gotten the attention of Epic.



Why not head over to epic.gm/arukun14 and check out the interview? Otherwise... back to the drawing board and see what else I can throw out. :) None of this would not have been possible without your tremendous support. Thank you all for your feedback!
