Master Chief John 117 sans hat by Drunkfu Master Chief John 117 sans hat by Drunkfu
So I'm a huge Halo fan, and I did some Halo 3 fan art cuz I wanted some painting practice, and more so because I was kind of disapointed by the game on several points. First off I was expecting to see the Master Chief without his helmet and all that, I figured they'd finally have to show his face in the last game. Secondly, I was hoping for multiple spartans in the campaign story mode thing. Or at least some Spartan III's ya know?

The game is good of course, and the ending pretty nice as well - I was just hoping for those two things. It was great though picking this game up after the months of the Halo 3 ARG (Alternate reality game) Iris. Halo 3's got alot of other neat things going for it (My favorite of which being that you can rip heavy mounted artillary like gattling guns and all that which would usaully be fixed in a position in the game but in this one you can rip it off and run around with it - veeeery cool.

Hey who knows, maybe the'll show chiefs face in halo 4? I mean if you've played the game all the way through on legendary mode it shows that chief is still alive and goes into a cryo sleep and than while he's aleep years later it shows the part of the ship that him and cortanna are on headed to an unknown planet with artificial lights on it

It shows his eyes in the legendary ending of Halo 4. We're getting close to seeing what he looks like.

yah! I think when I did this I tried to find whatever information I could on what he looks like and that was one of the sources. No doubt if they make a movie though, he'll turn out being Samuel L Jackson or something.

S-spartans? (Any mention of Spartans will only draw forth a 'THIS IS SPARTA' response...)

In any case, awesome job on the armoUr (ha, take that, spellcheck!) and his weapon, it looks like it could crush a small legion of choir children if dropped.

I like how the watercolour makes it very dreary-war-Wilfred Owenish. And you know, funny thing about that, but according to Wikipedia:

"An excerpt from Owen's poem "The Next War" was used in a Halo 3 promotional video that aired on September 14th 2007 as part of Bungie's "Believe" ad campaign."

Haha yes I believe it, they had this wacky advertising campaign going where they had these old guys pretending to be like veterans from this Halo war in the future and all acting like it was Vietnam or World War II :D They had so many great advertising campaigns for that game, I absolutely loved their Alternate reality game.

Yes, I was a little pissed at those points as well.
I also hated that they changed Cortana from such a wild, free spirit to
"JOOOOHN! SAAAAVE MEEE!'
kinda chick.
But at least she said his name!
Urg. I was over all DISAPOINTED with the game, but this is a
KICK ASS
picture.

OMG. I didn't know you where a Halo follower too. Scarfy's gonna get it from both ends. >;3

Curious to know what your weapon preference is. As is fitting with the way I play Melanie, my bloodthirst for battle makes me a melee specialist. I'm always in someone's face with the Brute Shot or a Gravity Hammer.

Eh, in most of cut scenes near the end and through the game people keep tossing him that rifle, so I figured it was pretty much the default stereotype weapon for him. I personally prefer those two submachine guns *_* And the way a shotgun rips through flood. But mosty the twin sub machine guns

It is pretty cool, at first I thought it was some kind of projectile weapon thing. It had the oddest targeting meter. I'll have to play with it again when I get the chance.

Bungie will be forced into making another Halo game, kind of like the creators of Family guy were forced into creating more seasons for the series. :P People will always want more John 117.

Luckily they did what all smart and money liking game designers and movie makers do, they left the ending open for more.

Halo isn't overrated. :P If you say that, you haven't played it before.

Couple things... This isn't the end of the Halo series. Well, it's the end of HALO, but most likely not the end of us being Master Chief. In the Legendary ending you can see the chunk of the spaceship that the Chief was in floating towards an almost mechanical looking planet. That, without a doubt it the planet Onyx. Which will continue the series and possibly be Marathon 2 or something like that(And would probobly be highly squad based because of the last of the Spartans are locked in there.) So of course you couldn't see his face. :P Oh, and all but seven of the Spartans remain since the fall of Reach, six of whom are trapped on the planet Onyx. So... That explains another complaint.

Otherwise it's an amazing game!

And yes, I am a fanboy.

Good pic, btw.

isnt there a bunch of spartan III's stuck in that planet thing.. its Dison Sphere or something? Along with the Doctor Hasley lady that created the Spartan project? I looked at a couple of the youtube versions of that ending and couldnt really tell what thing was at first. I thought it another Halo for a moment, then people kept saying it was a planet.

If that really is Onyx, and it's a hint at a sequal that might actually involve the other Spartans.. well Neato >_> If not, and its just a teaser for something they may never do, at least we'll have the strategy game coming out - Halo Wars or something? the teasers for that made me drool, an entire squad of Spartans??

Nice! I've never played Halo myself but I do like this. I love the contrast of the inks and the paint itself. The hard planed of his face and those chiseled cheekbones are gorgeous! :clap:

Thanks ya, I wish I could paint so sharply that I didnt feel the need to go over it with ink, but thus far it hasnt happened. And I very much recommend Halo, Im not all together a big fan of first person shooters, but I love the story behind this one. Even the names and pretty much any number you see in it has a puzzle and a patern and a meaning behind it

I love your paintings. But the makers of Halo said they wanted -everyone- to be Master Chief. So I suppose he dosn't take of his helmet so you dont know what he realy looks like and there for he symbolicaly is you.

Drunkfu Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2007
Well thats fantastic for a game, but it also has a story to it - and an imagening an amorphis multi faced freak beneith all the Miolnir armor just isnt as interesting >_> They've described what he looks like before, also - mostly in the books I believe. some non descript battle harned guy with lots of scars, and a near ghost like complexing due to never being out of the armor. Though oddly enough there's rumors of Denzel playing him in the upcoming movie

Starchasm Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2007
Yeah, I gotta agree with you. Plus, if he was supposed to be an "everyman" sort of character they would have kept his gender under wraps too ;P

This is almost EXACTLY how I picture Masterchief without the helmet!! And I love the detail on the armor :D

Thanks! I tried to get a 300lb paper for this, but all they had was 140lb at Aaron Brothers -_- Graver seems to always use 300 and it takes alot of abuse, this stuff not much so. So I had to be reluctant with the paints.

Graver gets his specially by the sheet at [link] then cuts it down to size. :D It has the cheapest art supplies either of us has found yet.

I sneak his scraps sometimes and play with it, it takes a LOT of abuse.

Yeppers! No stores around here carry the right supplies and shipping is cheap (free if you order over $200!). Plus, they really do have the cheapest prices around.

This is the one he's been using: [link] The 300lb hot press. They give discounts for bulk orders too :D
