HALO: FAITH - Jackal by ApneicMonkey HALO: FAITH - Jackal by ApneicMonkey
I actually thought I had finished on HALO: FAITH but the team liked my work so much they asked me to continue and do some 'redesigns' of some of the Covenant aliens that will appear in the film.

The idea was to present a more realistic and frightening version of each of the enemy species while keeping them completely recognizable to the fans and also adhering to the canon of the HALO universe.

Hello you hear currently? for awhile I have been watching you both on youtube (which I can't reply on) but I don't know to be honist if I been watching long enough to know if this is a good idea, but I'm going to risk it anyway. You see, I am a pirate king, and yet where I spend most of my time their seems to be a sad lacking in the kig-yar population, and I tend to get lonely. You can primarily find me hear, thdf.wikia.com/wiki/User:Lord_…   and hear, halo.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:… What you say? except the invite to join my pack and strike fear into the hearts of the landlubbers in the galaxy? I will only ask you once so I hope you see this.

I appreciate the offer but after long consideration, I think I will pass - I'm a UNSC supporter. :)

It unfortunately was cancelled early this year - it got a little bit too ambitious for the VFX guys who had the majority of the work.

thank you, I was hearing so much about it and now its been hovering around for a while. I hope your time wasnt wasted. Your art was fantastic, and It should be used in real halo film, hell, even the video game. Im sorry that happened

Nah, it's cool - I had fun and enjoyed doing the art for it. That alone was worth it plus it also gave me a huge amount of exposure so a lot of people can enjoy what I do.

It would be pretty cool to work on a HALO game. I know some of the guys who have worked on them in the past but I have to work harder to get to their level. :)

That's really cool. I really like the helmet for some reason- simple but it works.
Also, has anyone noticed that the more you see of the Jackals the less reptillian and the more birdlike they are?

In all honesty, your Jackal looks better than Bungies. ^^;

Bungies Jackals look like hideous dead vultures with pale eyes. Their Skirmishers on the other hand, look really good.

Thanks a lot! I really like the Skirmishers too and had a pic of one open as reference while painting this. I wanted to have a similar skin texture and that scariness they have. :)

Wait a moment, are their legs fully mechanical?
As in: their arms are actually the alien's FEET (like and ostrich) and it just sits in a mech that has feet?
Somewhat like these guys [link] from Abe's Oddysee?

Nope, their legs are organic, I just messed around with a proportions to make them a little more 'alien'. :)

Btw, I love the Sligs - now I want to paint one of them (and I have some free time this weekend). :)
