Awakening by Noble--6 Awakening by Noble--6
Inspired by the song of the same name from the Halo 4 Soundtrack by Neil Davidge.
______________________

The Master Chief gets a rude awakening as he is caught in the middle of a massive engagement between UNSC and Storm Covenant forces over the surface of Requiem.

______________________

This one took a good month or so to complete...Not sure exactly how many hours I put into it, but I wanted to get it done before Halo 4 was released, so I met my deadline.

It is a mixed media piece, utilizing traditional art, digital painting, and photo-manipulation. 90% of the image was completed by digital painting in Photoshop CS5.

Credits to Halopedia, where photos of the UNSC and Covenant vessels were taken from.

So what, can I recommend Daily Deviations where I am? Because this literally looks like a screenshot from the game! Makes me look forward to seeing if the Prometheans have any ships. And I know it's leaked, but I don't want to spoil it.

It's just a generic frigate, not F.U.D.
