Spartans by artbygp Spartans by artbygp
More experiments with my custom brushes. Not happy with a lot of them to be honest. I need to tweak and delete a whole bunch. Some are just useless.

Decided to test out the majority of my brush set on this sketch.

Spartans are the shit. I need to make another ODST painting as well, they are bad ass.

I absolutely love this. You have truly captured the gritty feel of Halo Universe as I see it in my mind. The games can only portray so much with todays technology, but this does look as though it could have been pulled right from novels. It's hard to imagine being inside their shoes: Inside the view-constricting helmet, walking through that desolate street in .5 metric tons of titanium alloy as if it were weightless. Without fear, the weight of humanity's survival on their shoulders. My favorite heroes of fiction by far.

Thanks for the words Dave! I haven't read all the Halo novels but damn I am so tempted in buying them all at once sometime to read them with excitement :)

Your welcome :) I have read every single novel so far, and they are all extremely well written. If I were you, I would read them in order of release like I did.

This reminds me of a part in the book "Fall of Reach" I believe where they encountered their first reported Hunter.

I never thought you lacked tone in any of your works. I did think this one was particularly interesting, not only because it was Halo, but the earthtones throughout. It just looks dirty, hazy... just a beautiful way of using shades of the same color.
