As Luck would have it It was brought to my attention that I am now free to post my “Secret Project” I had been working on for 3 weeks.
For a tiny bit of history:
About a month ago I was asked if I wanted to participate in a secret little project to provide some fans with a prize for an E3 LAN party that happens every year that’s biased around Halo. I was actually giddy at the thought of this because, A.) This was going to be my first E3, and B.) OMG HALO LAN PARTY… anyway >_>
Miguel Chaves, and our beloved Louis Wu from [link] asked me if there was anything I wanted to donate… and I said… Screw given ya old stuff! I wanna make something new!
And So I did. But little did I realize exactly what I was getting myself into, What was originally only supposed to take me about a week, took me 3 because for whatever reason I wanted this thing to look REALLY REALLY good. I wanted to make it Portfolio worthy, so I literally put my heart and soul into this thing! It was also supposed to be a poster, so I wanted to make it look REALLY good when it was blown up to Epic proportions ^_^.
As well, as of recent I re-discovered my first true Art love “Dave Dorman” and so I wanted to put to the test some of the Skillz I have been gleaning from his work. His works are always colorful and crisp, and never fail to instill emotion, so I tried, I don’t know if I succeeded but I defiantly tried ^_^.
All in all I am happy with the way this turned out…. Especially Cortana, and Halfjaw, because man… Cortana was a Bitch to get right… took me forever in a day to find the reference, and finally had to ask a friend who actually had the models to help me out (And he did… thank you Veegie!) Then figuring out how to work all the layers to get that “See-through glow” Was nuts!!! And I like halfjaw… because he is halfjaw ^_^
Anyway, here it is and stuff hope you all like ^_^
A interesting set up here. Cortana from Halo. I had a dream that heck, she and him (Master Chief) have a quite a friendly attuidue with each other that mayb.. more? Heck I would hate that idea, but the idea HAD to be drawn :3 "Chief?"
3-4 hours to complete, using Wacom pen and panel in Macromedia fireworks. I didn't know what colour she really was, since Owl Lady and her boyfriend claimed that she is blue in the Halo2 (which I havn't played yet) and what I've seen from screen shots, I got... confused? So.. I guess it could be a happy medium... maybe? :\
This was a sketch I have had for a lone time. Just check out my sketches and you'll see.
The image was based on my friend's jenny, and her favourite assets she luckly has obtained over her years *grumbles*
However I guess I turned it into a positive thing. HAHA. Or maybe not -sniggers-
Well, here's cortana. There isn't much fanart of her around the internet, so I figure I'd add to the pile. I am pretty happy with the overall look of this piece, but I think I'd like to do something a little more intense... I plan on doing a few more halo pieces, I'd really like to do one of me and my friend's in our different halo 3 armor. but we'll see how that goes. Enjoy!
Here is a Cortana commission I did for an Etsy customer. This was a lot of fun to develop and I will be posting a progress video soon. This Cortana compared to my old version - zombiehood.deviantart.com/art/… - is a lot better in my mind. No more broken backs for our favorite AI! What do you think?
Ok, so we dug it back up and are turning it into a running series here on Zombie Hood, “Why Can’t Real Life Be More Like Halo?” In the last edition we witnessed a Red Team Spartan get a long distance stick on some fat annoying customer. So what’s in store for us this time? Those “oh so lovable” meter maids! If you live in a big city, or attend a college (or any school) where you have your own car and there is very limited parking you’ll probably understand where we’re coming from. And don’t worry, we’ll be back next week with more of the main storyline for Zombie Hood. Peace out yo(s)!
This was my attempt at coloring the drawing of Cortana that I did which can be seen here: [link]
What I had pictured in my head is totally different that what I have here. I was expecting to put more work into it, but then decided not to. This is the second time I have colored one of my drawings in photoshop like this.
This came out SO much better than the first time I did this!
Ever since I got a tablet, I've been working on all sorts of projects.
I decided to recolor my Cortana holding the index hence part of the title says "revisited". The first time I did it can be seen here: [link]
The new one is a BIG improvement! The first attempt was done using a mouse and I spent about 30 hours on it. THIS time, I got to use my tablet and took me no more than 5 hours!
I didn't get too into the background for this. I just wanted to redo the coloring and I think it came out much nicer. You can see I made LOTS of changes on this one. I went more with shades of blue and used a little bit of purple for the eyes. The shading and lighting came out so much better in this version too!
I also like how it looks she has a sort of "haunting" look in her face because of the lighting. I am much happier with this one than I am the other one!
This is just some banner/advertising picture I made for Halo 3. The master chief picture was a rendered picture that I got from planet render and the earth and stars in the background were brushes that I got from this site about a month ago.
Somebody directed me to this site for brushes to download and I didn't really know much about this site so I just went crazy downloading all sorts of brushes, so whoever made these brushes, the credit goes to them.
Then I just put it all together and made a banner thing.
I just knew I was going to do a pic like this one day... well here it is a girl in Covenant armour
(and before you ask what the thing on her neck is... It's a mock up for a translator... with the actual device being the bit on the throat)
To go with the pic I have also been coming up with a story behind why a Human would be a member of the covenant (considering the prophets orders are for humanity's destruction this is not easy to write)... but a few ideas have been put to paper (haven't started writing anything yet since i have another story being worked on)
