Cryo Bay by GhilliedNinja Cryo Bay by GhilliedNinja
Hi guys, sorry that I've been away so long! But i'm back now for a while hopefully :w00t:

So anyway, this is my version of the very first area you play in during the campaign of halo 4. It took quite a while to do because i have just been REALLY un-inspired recently :/ So id say its taken about 5-6 hours in total! :D Which is a long time for me hehe ;)

I hope you all like this, as always, feel free to comment on what you like/dislike about the piece so i can improve ;)

Enjoy! :la:



Halo (c) 343i

Well, my first impression: it also looks a bit like the cryo deck of the normandy of mass effect ;)

You draw so well, I wish I was able to draw Halo stuff like you one day 8'] You're now definitely my idol ;w;
All the effects here, really nice work on them :iconcatsmileplz: Looks simply fantastic!
I really like the perspective! And you did stunning work with all this technology that this ship includes *__*
I remember this level so well...I was so excited to play this! 8'3 Thank you for drawing this ^^
I love that you added Master chief and Cortana there too, this is fantastic :dummy:

Woooaahh! Thanks for the compliment ! :glomp: I've never been anyone's idol before xD 

Thanks it was really great fun trying to add all the lighting effects and stuff :) I had actually planned to do a far more detailed and busier piece with objects floating around in the zero gravity and having some ice freezing on pipes and rails, but i ran out of time (This was for a Game Art Hq's 'Virtual Worlds' Tribute so there was a dealine ;) ( game-art-hq.deviantart.com/jou... )) 

Yeah i added MC and Cortana in at the very end because i love them both and i thought it would look cool having their silhouette in the distance! :D  

Thanks for the comment Tearraven! :la:

Ah, too bad you ran out of time :noes: This pic would've looked even better with all those little stuffs the game includes :D oh that ice freezing would've been a really nice effect :dummy: But this looks really great this way, in fact, If you put more details into it...I would be too jealous to even comment haha x'D just kidding ;)

It was all my pleasure, Mitch :la:

Thanks for the watch ;) I know i have already said thanks on your page but THANKS AGAIN! xD

I think i will definitely draw this environment again at some point, but i will do it in the same time, and use it as a test to see how much i have improved (so i will probablly do it again in a couple of months when hopefully i am better ;))

Thanks :) Im really glad you like it! :D Hahaha I had better not detail it then!!! haha

Ohh, I'd love to see the improvement! :D /still I'm too jealous to look at it. jkjk x'DD I can't wait ^^ 

You know the part on that first level where MC and Cortana realize that they have found an entire Covenant fleet? Where you can see Requiem and space~ You could draw that one day! *w* it would look beautiful ;3

Hahaa No problem dude! :D

Hahahah don't be jealous! You will be knocking pieces like this out in no time if you practice :) 

And yeah! That bit looks so pretty with requiem in the background and the fleet closing in xD Ill do it at some point! Oooohhh i could do a piece representing each campaign mission on halo..... THAT sounds like fun! xD Ill do all my commission work first (you could always commission me to do the covvie fleet hahaha) and then ill think about doing each campaign missionWoo

At the moment I just have to look at your art and wish it was mine ;W; haha Thanks for the push though! :la:

I agree, looks really beautiful 8D That's why I think you should try to draw it! ;3 But indeeeeeddd I could commission you to draw that part of the game, oh hell, now I just have to make commissions too and get some points! x'D aaargh!
Woah, every campaign mission~ That would make such a great collection :dummy: Those could end up in some sort of calendar or something comparable :) I can already see the landscapes of Requiem *w* Really epic! 8D Do that!

You make me want to draw something halo related now 8'D

I knew exactly what this was when I first saw it. My friend made me play her halo game and I've never played it before, but it was fun and I sucked but still kicked some ass xD But I bet you're quite the pro gamer, huh? Hehehhe [; Anyway, all the details and colours and just... this is superb! Your artwork always amazes me :3 So realistic, and yet, it has your own kind of style to it [:

I love it! :D Its my favourite game ;) I am quite sad when it comes to gaming, i win a lot more than i loose much to the annoyance of my brother haha xD

Its a brilliant game and it looks visually stunning so its hard not to want to try and recreate it in the form of art hehe

Thanks for the compliments, much appreciated :squee:

It is? :3 I can see why, it's pretty awesome (: hahaha, that's okay. That's what brothers are for, no? They beat you at video games? xD hehehhee.

I definitely agree! And you did a stunning job, to be honest. I personally think you could do the artwork for any future Halo games. I mean it. Your artwork has the perfect style and looks just like it! O__o

Oh, it's never a problem :3 You're very welcome! ^^

Haha, depends how much you want it :) If you want to be better rreealllllyy badly, then you will push yourself harder to get to that state ^^ So you could become better than me in the future if you want it bad enough :nod:

Haha yeah i look at my art and just see all the mistakes that others don't see xD Haha, thats why i must rely on others to guide me to becoming better! Thats why i started an account on deviantArt a year and a half ago when i decided that i wanted to try digital art :)

nahh, I get to frusterated with my artwork to work that hard at it xD I'm not naturally gifted with artwork whereas I think you definitely have some raw talent, even if you did have to push yourself a lot [:

Really? What kinds of mistakes? I mean, your artwork is so detailed that that makes room for more mistakes, but being so detailed, a random person wouldn't happen to notice (: Don't worry about it ^^ I'm sorry I can't help point out your mistakes... ^^' Because honestly, I don't see like..... any..... like.... ever in your artwork xD so there (:

Well, rather than get frustrated at a piece, why not just do loads of quick sketches, no more than 20 mins each, and just enjoy being creative :) Do everything from your awesome wolves, to thing you may never have tried to draw before :D And yeah i did have some natural ability, i can't deny that, but i know people who didnt have ANY raw talent AT ALL and they are now sooooo great at art its almost unbelievable that they are the same person ;) 

Enjoy art! Its a great skill to have ;) 

Hahah its fiiiine :iconspazhugplz:
