It was never a dull moment in that case. There was always a jokester that would make us all laugh and maintain that quality bond as a squad. Good times indeed. Here I’m just trying to work with the brush and getting those details down in a speedy manner. Will probably end up adding more details to this sometime in the near future.

Couldn't think of a better title. Pretty cliche. I'm just messing around with layer styles. Trying to get that good lighting mood. This was a bit of a pain but it was fun non the less.

I started with the background. It was just a white "T" in front of a brownish orangey color. Then I added a red blob in the middle and Walla... it turned out to be something great. For the face, I wanted to capture a memory that I cannot forget. It's a stare of a woman in Iraq when I toured down there in 2004. We patrolled and stationed a rundown castle like place in Tal'Afar, Iraq for a while. Up north of Iraq to be exact, near Mosul. They didn't want us there. We all knew it. Just the look on their faces told more than a story. So yeah, I wanted to capture that face and paint that memory on the canvas. Hope you guys enjoy.

Never thought I would ever create one. It's pretty fun actually. I will be creating a lot more tbh. Really fun.

It was fun to actually add more details to an existing painting I did a little while ago. This was inspired by Dust 514/Eve Online.

Here's a speedy of Chief before I hit the sack. Not proportionately correct since I used no ref but oh well ;p Good night everyone. Wed, 05 Sep 2012 01:09:22 -0400 Halo 4: John 117 http://shadowness.com/gabriel/halo-4-john-117 <a href="http://shadowness.com/gabriel/halo-4-john-117"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/256171/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br /> It's really exciting to know that Halo 4 is right around the corner. I have been following the series ever since Halo Combat Evolved came out for the xbox in 2001. I haven't been reading the books to keep up with the halo universe. Heavily augmented and trained, chief was among one of the last few spartans alive. Thanks to "spartan-217" for the info, The last spartan III's were on onyx with 5 spartan IIs + Fireteam black team(4) + alice,douglas,jerome + chief In Halo 3, Cortana put chief to sleep in the end so I really can't wait for the continuation of Chief's legacy. I really hope the new trilogy will live up to the hype. Crosses fingers. ------------------------- If you guys don't know what the background silhouette depicts, play the first Halo game ;) Bungie/343 Industries (c) Tue, 04 Sep 2012 19:50:20 -0400
