EDIT: Revamped the lighting and colouring. The old one is nowhere to be found! Ha-HA!
Been working on this for a couple weeks now as my chillout / warmup painting between some commissions. Sketched the face in my sketchbook and it all unfolded from there! This is my first sci-fi illustration, my first serious armour design, my first gun design, my first (good) character illustration, and my first painting of 2013. Further up, and further in!
Title is a nod to Halo 4 (I loved it), though this is not meant to exist within the Halo universe.
