yeah, i'm gonna have to agree with everyone and say that this drawing of the Didact looks way better then the Didact in Halo 4.

This is my favorite version of the Didact to date. Such an elegant yet powerful design, plus way more in line with the Forerunner art style than 343i's version.

For the record, I think this is cooler than what they ended up doing. Imagine a fight against *this*, like fighting a roided up Super-Promethean Knight... instead of a quicktime event.

I couldn't agree more. Quicktime events suck. It might as well have just been a cutscene.

I have to say I like this version much better. It keeps the mysterious lore of the forerunners in tact, rather than the human/voldemort vampire thing in Halo 4. I like how this drawing keeps the Didact faceless, assertive, and much more intresting.

Well it kinda makes sense that the promethians don't look like their artificial soldiers. I like the new Didact appearance-wise, but I'm still sad there's no true boss fight

Yeah, this was made before Halo 4 was out, and it was just what I pictured him looking like from the books.

Too bad he died in the same game he appeared in. :/ he was an epic villain. All it took was a f*cking grenade to take him down.

He actually didn't die, Brosky. The portal he fell in was a slipspace portal. He's still alive.

*facepalm* oh yeah. I was so caught up in the suspense of whether an epic boss battle was going to start or not, I forgot. Cortana even said that there was a giant slipspace portal materializing underneath the Composer. Sadly, I was let down when there was no epic boss battle. Maybe next game.

I would've preferred this version of the Didact to the hideous ugly sabre-toothed, squinty red-eyed Locust Warlord monster you see in Halo 4. This is how I imagine the Didact's armour to look - rather Sentinel-like.

Didact is my favorite villain and second favorite character ever in all the Halo games :glomp: and so I told my cousin that and he said I think Didact is sexy so I went along with it as a joke. xD

While I enjoyed the game, it's still not cannologicly synced to Halo lore, so I don't classify it as an actual halo 'link' in the series. It's just like a back story, like ODST to me. There's too much wrong with the story, too many frayed ends to be connected correctly for me. But the game was better than I had expected, I want the Didact's ball-ship thing. That hing looked pretty bad ass, but his main ship resembled, and had nearly the same 'beam' as a Mass Effect reaper for me to even nudge the like on that one. I'm rambling, I'll shut up now.

Lol, I find myself rambling on about Halo too. I could talk about it all day. Anyway, his "ball-ship thing," is called a Cryptum. :3 I also feel that what makes Halo so popular is that is has little if any story holes. The only ones that come to mind at the moment are, why did the Forerunners kill themselves with the Halo arrays and not hide in a shield world? They would have survived the blast but instead decided they didn't want to live. xD Another thing is that Didact wanted to compose all of mankind and turn them into Prometheans to get revenge, but did he ever stop and wonder what he would do with an army of over 6 billion Prometheans? :giggle:

I actually prefer this one. I always pictured the Forerunners as regal, stoic, and authoritative. The canonical version looks like the result of some Prometheus Engineer-Prothean crossbreed with some chimpanzee mixed in.

:iconsierra-116:
SIERRA-116 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012
But the canonical version is fitting of a Promethean of the Warrior-Servants. Forerunners don't all look the same. They mutate to different forms, depending on their rate.

:iconprehistoricechoes:

Yes, but they had a somewhat uniform appearance. While they varied in size, shape, and muscular stature, they had a definite "human" form to them and usually had white, blue, pink, and other shades of fur on their head and shoulders. Promethean warriors were larger, with a much more robust muscular physique, but were not wholly different from their kin. And I can remember a character from a much more "human" class in Cryptum commenting on how Bornstellar appeared slightly attractive after he mutated into a warrior-builder hybrid. This implies that warriors still look fairly human as well, despite the mutation.
