Halo by LeviWasTaken Halo by LeviWasTaken
More focused on painterly expression than accuracy of details and designs with this piece. I just went with the flow.

I think it'd make a good cover of a pocket novel if Halo was written in the 70s...

The cheif's face thing shouldn't be there honestly,Bungie and 343 hid it for a reason,and I was told if you want to see what the Cheif's face looked like,look in the mirror.

I agree. That's why this is a personal take on it.

You can kinda see the Chief's face, if you look closely.

Brilliant, I like how you also drew the target reticle onto the visor as well as managing to draw his face in there, quite a unique combination.

Took me a while to notice you can see his face. I hope they never reveal it. As far as I'm concerned, the helmet is his face.

Can I show you two of my SPARTANS and passages that I wrote for them? If so, then let me know what you think (personally, I prefer Gabriel's passage).

Order of occurrence:
SPARTAN-II Prototype Gabriel-297: [link]
SPARTAN-II Prototype Luna-082: [link]

Thanks, great work yourself; I'm enjoying that, keeping with Bungie's theme of hiding John's face, you tantalize us with a silhouette without giving away any distinguishing features.

Any suggestions, either for the stories (I took inspiration from the books, mostly in the writing style of Halo: The Flood) or the images themselves?

Just tell the stories you feel passionate about. The visuals are coming along nicely. If you want a slight critique, I'd say the hands tend to be a little too small. Next time you draw them, just overcompensate! :)
