HALO - Hotzone by ApneicMonkey HALO - Hotzone by ApneicMonkey
I just really wanted to do a painting with the Hornet Attack craft from HALO 3.

About 1.5hrs and I used a reference for the Hornet.

Gosh I remember that scene where you're in the hornet and there are all those damn banshees and that phantom flying around and you need to clear the landing zone for the pelican, but it's just so frustrating since it's so easy to get shot down!

I loved this addition to Halo 3. Finally, a human flying vehicle you can actually control!

Although rumor has it there's a Pelican you can take in Halo 2, but it's really hard to use and when you get it, it's not even at a useful point in the game.

War veteran: You call this a dog fight? I've seen better from 'nam!

Me: Buddy, you weren't even IN 'nam.

War veteran: Your point?

Me: don't make me call in the Hornet Attack Squad.

I thought the Hornets were underutilized in Halo 3. Not that the UNSC didn't use 'em enough (I've been killed by enough randomly-falling aircraft to know), but that the player really didn't get to use them all that much. They seemed really cool.

Like this painting. A very nice one; it was really all done in Photoshop? Do you use a tablet? Or did you manage this masterpiece with a mouse?

The only thing that could balance this out would be a few Banshees in the back. Presumably doing something, like shooting at the Hornets. I dunno. Still, :+fav:!

Yeah, I use a Wacom pen & tablet and it was all done in Photoshop. I want to paint the Hornets again sometime so maybe next time I can have them fighting some Banshees. :)

This was the one the the better levels to play in Halo. I love flying those things.

I feel sorry for the bloke who got hammered in the right side. The explosion looks fantastic....
