This is THE BEST fan art of ANYTHING Halo related. The colors on every character and weapon really has attitude and a personality of its own. In other words, it all really POPS together very coherently. If The Arbiter was suppose to be the main focus of this piece, than you've done an excellent job with that too. By making his colors slightly darker and grittier. And yes, you can really capture the movements of each character; like you're watching a cinematic cutscene. That should belong to a "Halo 3 Anniversary" game. The one star is for the unoriginal setting.

Dynamic action is caught well, pic captures the energy and movement of the subject and the characters all have a solid weight to them. The source of light is pretty good as well as the focus blur on the close and far specimens. The nearest elite that is looking towards the camera has a terrifying visage and the focus on the viewer and the breaking of the fourth wall is very believable.
The artist's use of color on this is very good also. Consistent palettes on each figure and an overall consistency that is believable and appealing to the eye.
All in all, very well done.

When humanity is in peril, and the Covenant rears its head to sink its fangs, these guys come from across the horizon.

And it is glorious. Arbiter is definitely the savior of the human race in this universe (Master Chief is the savior of the universe in general)

I'm just going to say that picture you did, is pure awesome! Overall how long did it take for you to rig all of the character in that? And how long did it take you to add after-effects?

When we joined the Covenant we took an oath, according to our station all without exception!

On the blood of our fathers, on the blood of our son's, we swore to uphold the Covenant, even to our dying breath!

There was honor in our Covenant once, and there shall be again!

If the Sangheili had been depicted like this after Halo 3, I would be a lot more enthusiastic about Halo than I have been lately. This is a really energetic piece, and captures the sense of restrained rage, professionalism and alienness that I love about them.

Well in Halo 4 the Sangheili looked rather feral and naked, but also shows more ferocity within the Elite ranks, especially when they're not organized as much when they were in the old Covenant.

I thought it became "Vadamee" ?

The lost the 'ee' when they rose against the Prophets. Frankly, I disagree with using the Arbiter's former name at all in post-war media, since as Arbiter, he was stripped of it.
Harbiger152's avatar
Thank you I did not know they no longer used the "ee".  After the war I think the Arbiter could reclaim his name because it was stripped by the Prophets and seeing as the Sangheili are undoing everything the Prophets have done then he could return to his former rank and title.
