Low-level Strike by LeviWasTaken Low-level Strike by LeviWasTaken
UPDATE: Ah, such an honor! Bungie highlighted this image (where I posted it at HBO as well) in their Comm Chatter on their front page: [link]

"All Brute cruisers are pulling back to Truth’s ship. Winds inside the storm just hit 200 kilometers per hour. Energy cascades all over the artifact!"

---------

This is actually just the top third of a much larger piece that I'm working on, so don't be surprised if you see this again in the future... Don't have a lot of time because of school these days so who knows when I'll finish that complete version, but hey I thought this part worked pretty well on its own! Makes a good wallpaper too.

You know, I know too much aerospace. Usually I'm very critical of spaceship designs. But there's two reasons I like Halo's
#1. They go about it in a smart way:
The A-10 Warthog, IRL, was designed as a gatling gun and they built a plane around it.
UNSC spaceships are designed as a MAC gun, with engines, weapon systems, etc., built around that.

#2. They look, and just are, awesome :D

Yes, that's one of the reasons I love 'em too. They look utilitarian - not just some artist's ramblings. :)

YES! :la: Exactly!

I mean, most sci fi is - what's that there for? Why is the thing shaped like that?

"uhh... I dunno. Looks good."

But Halo's ships actually MAKE SENSE :D
Well, they make about 80% sense. But they could be about 20% cooler :XD:

Hah yes. That's what I tend to do with my art (unless it's not fitting with the story or visuals of that world) is research it and then design it based on that to a point.... and then make it a LITTLE bit cooler. :)
