Elites Seeing Blue by Crazy-Dragon Elites Seeing Blue by Crazy-Dragon
Done with a ballpoint pen.
Not sure the overall amount of time I did but I know the Sangheili with the tattoos took me three hours in total.
I'm still getting used to elites, I know the tattooed guy is very burly, his 'ribs' are too deep, and the background is crappy but I tried and I don't want to screw it up even more.
Enjoy.

What an amazing piece .. I'm dumbfounded. :) Such incredible detail. The eye and expression on the right Elite's face are fantastic and I love the slightly dinosaurian look of the left, tattoed Elite. I guess you can really call him 'dino' in the best possible way! He's absolutely beautiful. :)

I certainly did enjoy this one and will do so for a long time yet. :)

Hey, I saw this one at Bungie.com. I was wondering who drew this. I couldnt find it at the website. I lost it :(, but now I found you. :D
This one is freakin badass. I love the pen shadeing and the elites eyeball. :)
I think you captured the elites pretty good.
Nice.

I wanted to enter mine at the gallery too, but theres no new ones up. :(

The guy in the back does look strange, but not in a bad way. At first I thought he was something totally new ^^;

Yeah I don't know what it is about the blue, I enjoy using it over the blue. I just use black to do small doodles, that is if I have a black pen in hand.

You are truly a master of the ballpoint. I always get the ink smudged everywhere... I haven't practiced with it enough. x3

Fabulous work!! Always happy to see Elites <33 Is there a story here? Wonderful work on the tattoos, shading/highlights and eyes. Not to mention background. <3 I love it!
