'Saving what is left of the civilians within the city grounds on Planet Reach these Spartans find themselves at the front line of the rescue operation. A blood-covered child clutching onto Harold while the wounded mother is tended by Ryley. Eris will keep loading one mag after the other, keeping the approaching enemy forces from advancing towards them.

Damn this took an age to render. So much stuff!

** 30/01/2018 UPDATE - Changed the posture of the ODST on the right**

(Comments would be lovely guys, seriously. Please give me your thoughts, as I will most likely want to post art sooner this way! Motivation, you know?) :) (Smile)

PLEASE ASK BEFORE POSTING IT ON ANOTHER SITE

Wonderful, you really captured the drama of such situation. The chaos, the fear, the deafening noise of gunfire and explosions mixed with panicked cries and orders shouted, the knowledge that you may not reach the last transport in time and be doomed to be glassed or that it may be destroyed while it's taking off... If it's bad for the military personnel, just think how horrible it must be for the civilians. Truly stuff of nightmares, especially when seen from the eyes of a kid.

"Mommy!"
"She's alright, sweetheart. Ryley, how is she doing?"
"The carbine missed all important stuff, but she needs Evac, ASAP."
"We all need Evac ASAP! I'm running dry and the hinge-heads keep coming!"
"WORT WORT WORT!"

Thanks XD

I suppose I was thinking of the mission on Halo: Reach when you evac civilians. It seemed a little too bright and dull to me. Would have worked better at night. Would have looked grimmer at least.

Well, if they want to make a game centered around a galactic conflict against a genocidal alien empire we surely need more blood and civilian casualties. I mean, in the latest games you can basically unload the magazine of an assault rifle in the face of the enemy and they'll just get down like a rag doll. What's the deal? Are people too afraid to realize that real war is not a bunch of teens yelling at each other through the mike while the run around with a HMG and argue which weapon is the best even if they've just read the specs on Wikipedia? I wouldn't mind to see the levels of violence described in books, with plasma melting through armor plates like they're made out of paper and grenades making a huge mess like we see in the first games.

This is how gritty I like my Halo
cfowler7-SFM's avatar
Same here ^^ why I liked ODST and Reach as you connected with civilians more.

You hit it right on the spot. Both pretty much my favourite games. The artstyle definately too.
