This was originally just going to be a quick sketch of the Master Chief's helmet on a blank background. As you can see, I got a little carried away, and this is the result after a week of off and on work.

I hope you enjoy!

EDIT: Some people made the observation the helmet was originally too elongated, which I agreed with. I shortened it down, so it should be more proportional now.

_____________

Freshly deployed from a D77-TC Pelican Gunship, Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 prepares to back up the UNSC forces, who are currently engaged in a losing battle against a mighty Covenant invasion fleet.

When the ground commander called in for reinforcements, I bet he didn't think they'd send a Spartan.

I like this one, but I do hope they do a remake of Halo CE: with the new tech that was used in reach, it would be awesome! (well... more awesome actually)

It started out as a very simple line sketch of the the Chief and the assault rifle. It was then scanned and the rest was completed in PS CS5. The cruisers and Pelican also started out as line sketches that were scanned.

Thank you! :D
