Unexpected Discovery by Noble--6 Unexpected Discovery by Noble--6
"Chief, take first platoon, hard drop, and secure a landing zone. Sergeant, load up two flights of Pelicans and follow them in."

_____________

In its pursuit of the Covenant Assault Carrier, the Solemn Penance, through slipspace, the UNSC frigate, In Amber Clad, stumbles upon an ancient superweapon ominously orbiting a massive gas giant in the dead of space.

This is a counterpart image to: [link]
_____________

Mostly completed in Photoshop CS5. The frigate and carrier started out as scanned line sketches.

Though its hard. Not much material in the visuals field to go off of.

I always wondered what the Chief was thinking when the second Halo array came into view. Probably something like "Oh come on. I just got finished blowing up one of these things!"

This is a completely different picture - the first one was for Halo: Combat Evolved. This is for Halo 2.

"Well why'd we be looking at that when we could be lookin at Halo?"

"Halo?"

"HAAAAAAAAAAAAA-LLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!"

Halo 2...best Halo, IMO. Then Reach, I'd say. 3 was good, but the campaign was the weakest, and Halo CE on a PC was DIVINE!!

Incredible work, as usual! Your space art is fantastic, buddy. And the fact that it's Halo-related is just a huge bonus. ;)

Thanks so much, man! Yeah, I originally was just gonna do a generic space scene, but every time I do that, I feel the need to Halo-ize it, haha.

Thanks again! :D
