So with the release and my complete dedication of my free time to Halo Reach, the game being a prequel to the first Halo, i tried to envision the Master Chief as he was in the first game with the styling of the spartans of Halo Reach..

Though i've been trying to think up a background...if anyone has any fitting ideas, let me know =D

this might be late, but one of the ring worlds with a downed phantom behind him.

how about him fighting on a MAC Cannon station similar one in halo 2

This is really good. It's hard to find good pictures of the chief in mark V armor like this.

Cool spartan drawing. Love the way he prepared a sticky in his hand and about the the backgroud maybe a wasteland like the one in invasion. But that's my opinion.

Looks awesome amigo :D

This is amazing! As in Halo Reach we only get a glimpse of the Chief at the end of the game, but this makes up for it in so many ways!

Burning building, bombing banshees, and a front line of marines, (possibly colliding with elites) and some vehicles. You know a ''classic'' back ground. Or something simpler... Still an amazing piece!

Epic work, Chief looks awesome!

Awesome the ways you put the pistol at a cross-draw position.

"Who gave him a weapon? He doesn't need a weapon to kill people. He can do it with just his thumbs. Just. His. Thumbs."

Nice re-imagining of John in his MARK V MJOLNIR Armor. He looks like hes going to do something bad-ass and obviously, kill aliens. The Covenant must be afraid, they must be afraid right now.

although, technically it's still the wrong armor... cuz it's outsourced B.

Very well done. I love the details you added. There's rumors that 343 Entertainment might be remaking Halo: CE on the Reach engine for the 10th Anniversary of Halo, but nothing's confirmed. (It would be incredibly awesome, though.)

For a background, though... I do think it should be set on Halo. Maybe with some Marines behind him, and some Flood in front.

just hope they don't actually use the Reach armor... cuz it's not de sem..

Amazing Work

:D As usual man the Pic looks great. I will say that my eyes were drawn to the right wrist and the way he is holding the gun. The position looks unnatural, or perhaps the angle of the gun is off a little. Maybe the tip in and the butt out a little. Overall though it is a great depiction, and I agree with many of the other comments about him needing to be surrounded by gore of sorts.

nice pic man. id put him on a cliff with a covanant horde in front of him. lol

I agree with HellaXande. Destruction should be all around the Chief (who I just noticed does NOT follow the i before e rule, but he's too cool for rules). And there should be smoke and dust billowing around the legs. It would really set off the plasma glow.

Nicely done! :iconcoolplz:

this is one of the best MC pics I've seen great work. :winner:
I could see him standing in a impact crater with some marines hiding while other Spartans fighting in the far background.

This looks awesome o.o for some reason I picture him onboard a pelican transport or the new vulture? XD

This is very good! I'm a longtime Halo fan and I appreciate this. *goes to see if there are more Halo drawings in your deviations*
AzureChris Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
