Concept - Forgotten Enforcer by GhilliedNinja Concept - Forgotten Enforcer by GhilliedNinja
Hey guys, this is a Character concept sheet I just finished for a fan-made Halo graphic novel called 'Ultimatum' by Isaac Semmelmann. I will be uploading more of the concept sheets I'm doing for this project as and when I complete them over the next month! So keep an eye out ;) 
Which is your favourite? Meow :3 

The description I was given to work with:

"The Forgotten Enforcer has no name but his actions speak for themselves. He is a very strong individual wielding a modified M247H Heavy Machine Gun. The Forgotten Enforcer Wears ODST gear but he modified the armor for his own puposes.'

As always comments and critiques are welcome!

I'm partial to the one in the middle. He seems the most intimidating of the bunch, yet number 1 has a vigilante feel to it. It's hard to choose really.

Thanks, much appreciated!

I think a Halo ODST sequel would be fantastic for adding a new rougue trooper like this :P But we can only hope :D

You just took my favorite type of UNSC soldier and modified his already epic armor into something even more cool. You Sir, are my hero! :salute:

I really love the 1. one due to the hoodie, the bare arms and the lacking femoral armor but I got to say that the number 3. also looks pretty awesome with the subtle little extras, though it's not too far from the original ODST armor. I'd combine those two but I guess that's also because it then would resemble a bit to my ODST Dawn and I lover her personalized armor :lol:

GhilliedNinja Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hahaha, sweeeeet! ;) I knew you would like these xD

Yeah, 1 is more of a survivor, 2 is the high tech one, and 3 is the close to original ODST, but with a few modifications :) 

Yeah, maybe one day ill draw dawn in this style (with your permission of course ;)) if I ever have any time xD haha

Thanks so much for the comment Silvana! :glomp:

I always love good ODST art ;)

I could imagine how 1 is waiting for days all hidden in the woods for someone to come by he can stab in the back without being seen. But I think all three look very good in their own way.

My favorite character Dawn drawn by you? Wow, that would be really cool! I'm no beggar but it you want to, feel free to draw my characters all you want. I trust your skills and I guess you certainly won't come up with any porn or humiliating art about them XD

No problem, Mitch. I love your art :D

Yeah, number 1 is my personal fave :) Although I quite like the night-vision/thermal-vision/whatever-vision goggles on number 2 :) Would be quite useful :) 

Haha i just absolutely love her armour, its like standard odst, but with her own personal touches like i love that long skirt/cloak thing :) Also those scars! I want to see if i can capture a beautiful yet determined face with those scars ;) A difficult challenge! But i definitely wanna try :) Also her badass blade would need to be in the pic too! Haha (...its safe to say i like dawn..... haha) xD Either way, i would ask you about any situation i might put her in as she is your character :) So don't worry, no porn scenes between her and a horny grunt :p That's just not cool! xD

I love your art too! :P

I like the idea of the goggles, but since the T-shaped visor is near perfection to me, adding eyes looks bit weird, but it's a cool thing on it's own for sure.

I wanted to go with standard ODST armor from Halo3 ODST, since I honestly think that one looks best. Then I added a few details like the optics device on her helmet, and the camouflage net on her shoulders and the "belt spat" to blur up her silhouette in order to increase her abilities to hide (and hide her ass too since Halo armor tends to point out the female rear parts XD). That way it's still pure ODST armor instead of something new and not totally overdone like some character's equipment is.
Haha, I've never heard someone considering Dawn's face pretty due to her scars but the way you explained it she'd surely look good when drawn by you, even though it's a challenge =)
Oh it was just a little joke. I know you'd not come up with such porn but I already had people asking me for it. All I can say to that is ewwww! XD

But honestly, it makes me really happy to hear that there's people out there who like my character. Especially if that's coming from someone as talented as you are! So if you really want to, feel free to draw her. I'd love to see it! :D

That's fair enough :) 

And i love the halo 3 odst armour too :) I actually also like the halo 4 spartan ODST armour (apart from that helmet!) 
Her little added features make it far more realistic ;) I love the amount of sensible thought you have put into it :) When i did my sniper training, i wore a dpm camo cloak with a hood so that my silhouette was distorted, worked a treat! So i totally understand why she has the "Belt spat", its really useful! 
And i love the look of scars, they tell stories, like tattoos too :) 
Some people are strange, and "eewwww" is the right reaction haha xD

If i have time, I will definitely give it a go :) Thank you for your kind words! :D

I really liked ODST armor in Halo3 and even more in ODST but then almost all designs for marine armor got worse or at least more mainstream and less iconic than they were in Halo3. ODST armor was still cool in Reach regarding the helmet and chest region but the lower you got, the worse it became. It's good they tried to go back to Halo3 with the ODST armor design in Halo4, but to me it looks way too bulky and like lego pieces put on a soldier. Not even mentioning the helmet... That one got really fucked up.
Well, I already went pretty crazy and off regulation with Dawn's hair and earrings, so I wanted to at least keep her armor moderate and solid black besides of the few features more helpful for her tasks. But I went pretty crazy with the crap painted on Steve's armor just for the fun of an ODST paying tribute to the marines from Aliens with their crazy armor full of tags and stuff =p
Oh so you served in the British Army? Since military duty in Switzerland is only mandatory for males, I never had military training, but I got some shooting skills from hunting, so I've got at least a basic Idea what hiding, waiting for a target and shooting is all about and I tried to let that knowledge go into my characters since they're of military nature instead of just adding stuff that looks good. Besides, that "skirt" thing the ARC-Troopers from Star Wars wear is called Kama or belt-spat, so I kinda went with that name since I don't know any English description for it.

You're welcome! Though I got to thank you :D

Yeah, i totally agree, ever since ODST, the armours got pretty pathetic, but apparently 343 plan to redo the odst armour again based on fan response ;) Hoping they fix that helmet! :D

Yeah, your decision to leave the armour ALMOST default was a good choice :) Makes Dawn seem like she could actually fit in the halo universe :) Which i'm sure you were aiming for when you sat and designed her :) 

No I never served in the british army, i was in the ccf (basically a military training force that means i can train in the EXACT same conditions as the real military, just spread over a long time :) I have shot most commonly used firearms, i have practised in shooting ranged all across the country, and i am in the top 1% for my shooting scores ;) I also have flown aircraft solo, and racked up about 40 hours of flying time :) Sorry, i sound so big headed :/ But yeah, i have basically done a LOT of military exercises and training without having to serve, i did it from when i was 14 till i was 18 :) Was amazing! xD

And i LOVE hunting ;) So great, its fun, and dinner is cheaper :p

Yeah i dont know what its called either :p But they look cool :P ESPECIALLY on odst armour!

Its going to be a sci-fi graphic novel, but i am not saying anything else yet :) I also might be selling proper prints of it, but depends how much people like it and how much time and effort goes into it :)

And im expecting to finish the prelude and episode 1 it by the end of summer holidays :)  So keep you eyes peeled around that time :)
