The lights are on
Bulletstorm is a violent game, and protagonist Grayson Hunt doesn't seem to mind one bit. In fact, one look at his smirk on our cover shows a hint of joy as he's simultaneously kicking one enemy, strangling another, and unloading an entire magazine of bullets into a third.
Check out the video below to see cover artist and Epic art director Chris Perna describe the creation process for our latest cover.

I'm not sold on this game outdoing Uncharted 2's blockbuster moments, but this is some pretty awesome artwork.
How long does something like that take? I know we have some graphic artists on here.....
i would think a skilled artist would first need the outline which is probably what takes the longest to make.
It looks cool and awesome and everything but honey, we have to talk about that hair.
lol 2:13 hes the texas chainsaw mascare guy
Wow, never even noticed the details... the leaping guy with the face facemask XD Very cool piece though, would make a killer poster.
Like the cover. The game looks sweet also. This must of been really fun to create.
Cool cover. I'm not digging the main dude, though; he looks kind of ridiculous from the neck up. It's almost Final Fantasy ridiculous, which doesn't fit the surrounding scene at all. I guess it's just the haircut. Otherwise, I like it.
am i the only one that feels like this cover and possibly this game looks a little generic?

I'm loving the art direction for the game also. Gears is great the way they created it but Bulletstorm really thrives with lots of color, nice job.
Do laws of physics not apply with bluish glowing whips in this world?
grayson hunt looks like nerd, they oughtta change his looks. cuz i dont like it one bit
lol at 00:12 its war from darksiders
Nice cover artwork but it doesn't have much of anything to do with the title. One gun is firing out of frame and the rest of the 'Fallout 3' gang is chomping at the bit for the clip to empty so they can thump this guys skull. I'll pass at this point.
I think it looks like an awkward game. It doesnt look new and exciting, rather it looks old and thrown up to be re-used.
That particular piece of artwork would take about three days at the most to complete. Too put it nicely, it is basically a recycled gears of war picture with a B grade concept, I can say most of the time was spend drawing instead of thinking. Nice choice of colors, but there is just too much going on at once. If they are professional concept artists, they should understand that less can sometimes mean more. With a Wacom tablet, all of the colors are just a right click away. Saying this game is supposed to be over the top would be considered a cop out. Can they at least try to come up with something original, or think outside of the box? Look at team ico's artwork if you want to see something inspiring and original. I love how all of you fap to the most simplistic and childish concepts. Take gears, add color and...OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING... rofl
I agree, don't know why, but it does seem like I have already seen everything about this game before...
The game looks interesting, and if it can nail everything it's attempting, then I might buy it.
