Master Chief - Home Again by TacosaurusRex Master Chief - Home Again by TacosaurusRex
OH HEY LOOK, ANOTHER UNFINISHED MASTER CHIEF PICTURE!

A late night speed paint I did while listening to the new Halo 4 soundtrack (which is incredibly beautiful btw) - [link]

We got the game earlier today, but I havent gotten to play it yet because my brothers wont let me on the Xbox.... So no spoilers please :>
I JUST FINISHED THE GAME AND NOW THIS PICTURE MAKES ME REALLY SAD

Since it was a speed paint, I didn't put a whole lot of effort into detailing the armor so there are probably a lot of mistakes, but I plan to go back, fix everything, and add more details to the piece later on this week.





p.s Ive never really done a rain picture like this before, so this was sort of an experiment for me. It was a lot of fun though, and I think it turned out all right! But tell me what you think?

What does the status of my birth or guardianship have to do with art, truth, or colors?
I love your signature format.

Neat.
Cool drippling effect from the rain on the armor, not the easiest thing to pull off.

I really like how you drew the rain splashing on his armor.
A lot of people just draw raindrops over a picture and call it good, but that detail really adds something somehow...

Wow, this really captures the emotion of the ending of Halo 4. That ending and this picture remind me of my friend, who was a supreme Halo fan, who died two years ago this week. This brings back so much emotion, that's how I know you are a superb artist, I commend you on your brilliant work

An ending like that in a game like Halo reply took me by surprise. Thank you for the kind words and I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, but friends never truly go away. You can always find bit and pieces of them scattered throughout our daily lives and I'm glad that I was able to bring back part of him for you.

i love how the rain makes it look like he's crying. I guess after he lost Cortana, thats what he did inside...

yeah that my intent :D I'm glad somebody picked up on that! That part of the game was soo sad though.... I was playing co-op with my brother when we beat it and I had to choke back my tears so I didn't look like a doofus in front of him haha

I can read emotions in certain pictures and paintings rather well :) yeah, i felt like crying myself when i reached that part of the game. I noticed at the point before Cortana touches his chest how his voice became shaky for a second like he was trying not to cry.
I believe that Cortana isn't really dead. Shes just Missing In Action.

She'll be back in halo 4/5 prolly halo 5. they wouldn't risk completely killing off a character such as her since it drives sales = $$$$.

O.O EK! if they make her human they better have a love sine in it, i would die of happiness if that happened :D

I had an idea of what was coming since I had seen posts about the game on various websites (and since some dude kinda spoiled it for me) but I still wasn't prepared for the ending and I seriously almost cried.

They are planning on making a Halo 5 and someone told me that it will be even darker than before... I dont know if my heart will be able to handle it after this one though :'C

i know how you feel, but the question on my mind is that are they gonna get cortana back or am i gonna beat them to make them get her back, and i also cried at the end. by the way Master Chief sounded i knew he loved her and so did she. but as soon as she disappeared in front of him i started balling. even thinking about it makes me wanna cry

such emotion. I really felt for him in the end. They say the next game will be darker. Hopefully not too dark.

I actually like how lt isn't so detailed. it makes it feel . . . heavy or worn. It's hard to explain how it makes me feel.

Man, oh, man - this is amazing. The only things I could say about the rain would be: watch out for where the rain makes tangents with his armor, like from the right side of the helmet down towards the right shoulder - it gets in the way of the armor's actual shape there and throws off the depth in that area. It seems to come forward on the page in a way that it shouldn't.

Other than that, I'm having trouble finding anything wrong...

I thought this was Alphonse Elric at first. XD

I think the rain effect turned out well! I like the little droplets rolling off his armor. It gives the mood a somber and perhaps regretful feeling as well.
