HALO - NOBLE 6 by ApneicMonkey HALO - NOBLE 6 by ApneicMonkey
Time for some more HALO fan art to boost my excitement for the release of Reach even further.

This came together surprisingly quick, probably 3-4hrs of work on my Mac and I'm reasonably happy with the end result. I took several liberties with the armor as I wanted to add a personal touch to the painting. You can change around his armor in the full game anyway so it shouldn't matter to most people. :p

Full size version can be found on my blog: [link]

Yeah, it was before the game released so I wasn't sure how 6 looked - I had to guess with a lot of details. :)

They are but to be honest, I did this before I made it to that mission in the game and was basing it on the trailer where you see '6' holding the dog tags. :p

Very Nice. I love how he is carrying Jorge's Tags. Still quite a sad epic, I honestly cant stop playing the campaign, whenever I play I tend to notice little bits I missed before, along with scenery and not to mention all the easter eggs make me "lol"

Btw, you should do a painting tutorial some time. Would love to know how you did that sky ^^

HOLY COW. Every time I am gone for a little, you come back with work that ALWAYS BLOWS ME AWAY. This is an amazing piece, and even Jorge's dog tags add such an emotional touch to everything. I cannot imaging your library of brushes you have in your arsinal.

Strangely enough, for all the brushes I've collected over the past few years I usually only use 2 standard round brushes and a chalk brush - all of which come with Photoshop. :p Always best to keep things simple. ;)

I took a strong liking to Six and I have to say this came out looking very nice. :D

However I can't help but feel that this reminds of the last mission/epilogue. Dammit she was awesome. :'(

Good thing I've finished the game now so I don't feel spoiled. :p

It does have a similar feeling to the Lone Wolf mission - completely unintentional as I didn't know that's how the game was going to end. :)
