Chief and Elite by ZZoMBiEXIII Chief and Elite by ZZoMBiEXIII
My WACOM tablet has taken a turn for the worse and passed away. Yea, tho we mourn it's loss.

So while I wait for it to be shipped to the warranty repair depot, I've been doodling on paper like in the days of old.

This is a snapshot of a drawing I did on cardstock paper. Penciled and inked and then snapped with my phone camera and uploaded via Instagram.

Quality is not as sharp as the things I usually post, but I wanted to share it anyway.

Yeah, all the angles can get tricky. Thankfully, I've played enough Halo to have it basically commited to memory! lol :)
I appreciate the encouragement.

As do I.
At this point, Halo 5 isn't an automatic purchase for me. They are going to have to earn that sale. And I've all but stopped playing Halo 4.

The saddest thing of all though, is that it's not a bad game. But when you put "Halo" on the box, it adds certain expectations. Things like file share, things like theater mode, things like campaign scoring, things like Firefight options, these have become part of the Halo experience for me. And that they are not in part, but ALL missing. It damages the quality of the product and the games staying power.

Anyway, thanks for the comment. Sorry for the diatribe. :)

Seems like Bungie did a magnificent job at the previous Halos. I loved the mystery and adventure in this game, because it has been five years since Halo 3's release.

I know what you mean by those. I just love to mess around with theater Champaign, find every skull on every level, fight alongside the Elites, and, most of all, stop the threat that plans to destroy everything that lives.

But what I really hated most is WHY did the Elites break a truce with the humane?? I know some of them were a splinter group (as what people are saying), but why would they back stab everyone and join the most advanced race in the galaxy!? And where's the Arbiter at? He was nowhere to be seen. I hope 343 will make a game where it had a side story or the continuing events of Halo 4 with Thel Vadamm taking Chiefs place and at least explain some things. I'd rather have cut scenes that have moving things rather than a picture of people standing around (like ME3).

You're welcome.

Nothing wrong with that. Different artists need different approaches to the craft. Personally, I was happy to see paper left behind. But that's just because it fits my style and needs, not because traditional mediums are any less valid.

There is a certain tactile sensation when working with paper. It's enjoyable. But there's no undo button with pen and paper. :P

Tablets may be one of the technology God's greatest gifts to artists everywhere, but nothing can beat good old pencil and paper. They're much more reliable than tablets .[/half-joking]

Well, except when you run out of pencil lead, or the paper you're drawing on gets ruined by an a random stain, or you mess up a picture during the inking process.......

Yeah, I'm gonna stop digging this hole now.

Random Elite: KEEP DIGGING HUMAN FILTH!

Oh screw you Elite! And get that damn Fuel Rod Cannon out of my face!


.......

Oh yeah, epic pic. Looks like it jumped out of the pages of some 60s-70s era comic book.

Paper has no undo button. But it's still fun to go back to from time to time. That said, I'll be waiting by the mailbox every day until I get my WACOM back from the warranty place! :P

I did have a ton of fun in Reach's ELITE modes. Elite Slayer was so awesome before they nerfed the loadouts. NEEDLE NEEDLE NEEDLE PLASMA! Too much chaotic fun.

Seriously, sometimes all I need in my day is a few exploding dinosaurs.
I can't believe the nerve of 343, taking away my exploding dinosaurs.
It's not the same if I can't be one of the exploding dinosaurs!

Those modes were fun. But I honestly don't miss them like I thought I might. I agree they were great in the past Halo games, but I've been having a lot of fun with the multiplayer in H4. More than I thought I would.

I was terrified it would take on too much Call of Duty for my liking. Nothing wrong with those who like CoD of course, but I never cared for it. I prefer the sci-fi setting and having to take a couple of shots before I am destroyed by the other player. Happily, they've found a nice balance of updating the mp to meet with popular trends and still made it feel like Halo should.

That's a relief to hear - I haven't gotten my hands on Halo 4 yet, and still need to play Assassin's Creed III before I even look at Halo again, so it's nice to know it'll still be Halo when I finally do get around to playing the darn thing.

Yeah. I was drawing this from memory so I didn't want to bother with the new Halo 4 armors. I don't know them nearly as well. And since you can't take screenshots from Campaign in H4's theater mode, I likely never will. But that's a discussion for another day. Thanks for the comment. :)

No retconning, Cortana altered the armor via nano machines within the cryotube.

Nope, the cryotubes have nanomachines in them that AIs can use to help repair spartan armor or if they are given enough time, completely alter the suit. But she can only use with what she is given so that is why Chief's armor still has the gash on the right side of the chest.
