Halo Firefight by fromthedead Halo Firefight by fromthedead
Master Chief from the Halo series by Microsoft Game Studios/Bungie/343 Industries/

Done in Photoshop CS3. Approx 15 hours. Background is based off a screen shot from Halo 3 and repainted. Master Chiefs armor is based off the Halo 3 design since it's my personal fave version.

Had fun doing this. Next up I'll be working on a character from my other favorite series - God of War.

Wow, this definetely looks like it took a long time. You did a good job. I would maybe try using other textured brushes to give it a bit of a "rough" effect. You could also create a bit of a receding effect if you use atmospheric perspective. That way the objects on the back don't look confusing when it comes to where they are at. Keep going!

Thanks. Yeah I didn't have time to remember how grunts looked exactly so I looked up some back grounds and repainted one. I don't normally get that lazy. I think I could've put more detail in the trees and leaves though.

This is awesome! I love Halo, and this is a perfect painting! You should make a tutorial for something like this, I'd love to learn how to do something similar!

I have a WIPs lying around here somewhere. I basically just sketch it on paper, scan and use that as a base for the painting.

Same here. Might get a PS4 first but right now neither console looks all that impressive. I thought the jump to next gen would blow me away. I'm just sort of "meh" whatever. Too much social integration, games still look like PS3/360 games and they haven't worked out all the hardware kinks yet.

I like this piece alot, (and not just because Halo is awesome). First, you've included subtle details that just make the picture. The reflection of orange on Master chiefs armor, the fog, and even the background. All very wonderful.

Nice one:) I dont get what is below the weapon on the backgound, so for me those claws? and a body? are too blurred, it distorts perspective a bit.

It's a couple of grunts. I got lazy painting them so I put them out of focus to make Chief stand out more. They really aren't that important. They're just grunts.
