I like how this turned out. I myself am a big fan of Halo, and like how this picture came out. But as a critique states i need to be very picky.

I like the background and how it is blurred a little but still has textures to make it look very 3D and realistic, staying true to the game.
I also like the colors, they definitely give this the impact they need but not enough so.

A few things bug me on this though.
One being how the pony character turned out, not saying i don't like the sketchy style to it but that should have only been on the armor and the tail/mane. If you want this picture to pop a little more, you should make his face and wings more clear with less sketch lines.

Anther thing is with the rain you should have made it bounce off of him, making a kind of haze, giving him more depth and realism.

Other then that everything looks spot on

I walk a lonely road,
The only one that I have ever known.
Don't know where it goes,
But it's only me and I walk alone.

The general style of this one (especially the high emphasis on orange lights) kinda reminds me of some artwork from Battlefield 4.

ive noticed a lot of games are going for a blue - orange colour scheme lately :P
Raaleth's avatar
Makes sense. These two colours allow you to achieve nice contrast and keep the piece/level/any other piece of visual art interesting when it comes to colours. Kind of a no brainer, it makes me think why it took the movie and games industry so long to actually come up with this idea.

well for the longest time, they thought we all wanted realistically dull brown and grey :P
