Good day, the purpose of this thread is basically to share your favorite piece of work from a game either Trailer, CGI, in-game or concept art and pretty much give a description on what the shot evokes to you personally. Feel free to contribute, I'll start this off buds...

As seen from the Gears of War mad world trailer. I'll list a couple of points on why this shot resignates with me.

- Incredible emotion in Marcus.

- Great color palette.

- Well done lighting.

- Outstanding character design.

Some WiC shots I took for this thread...The campaign videos are simply stunning in this game and I think these show off some great CG. (I did downsize them to load faster and fit in the forums).

That's a heck of a lot of "a pixel"s.

Well it's only the thread title. However, you'll be surprise that there are people that can verbally articulate a single pixel or individual color.

I think this one speaks for itself. Blood splatters and great water effects. Hollow yet sinister looking surrounding. Great use of lighting, very atmospheric and overall a very haunting scene. Gives off a sense of loss and lonliness.
