Feet First Into Hell! by GhilliedNinja Feet First Into Hell! by GhilliedNinja
This is just a relatively quick piece of an ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) from one of my favorite game franchises, Halo :) This took me about 2 hours to do in total, which is pretty good ;)

I hope you like it! :la: Please feel free to leave a comment :D

Enjoy xD


[ Halo (c) 343i ]

Halo 4 ;) I have played all of the games (my first EVER console game was halo CE preordered for original xbox) so i have been a fan since just before day one haha xD And i just think that purely due to the fact that the story was soooooooo intense and deep in halo 4 that it deserves to be at the top of my list. However Reach had its epic moments, and halo CE sums up my entire childhood. So i dont like saying that one in particular is my fave, but halo 4 set a new benchmark for halo games with its story, its graphics, its multiplayer and its overall perfectly balanced gameplay (once the balancing patches came out haha), plus lets be honest, it managed to survive an entire company swap!!! (i know 343i is mainly made up of ex-bungie employees, but that is still an incredible feat :) 

Emile was cool, but i think i preferred Jun, he could still be alive, and i like that sense of mystery :) Plus i am proficient with marksman rifles in real life, so i can relate to being the sniper in a fireteam :)

hehe, yeah well i love emile's armour and i didnt like halo 4 as much as reach, i dont know why, it could be that only masterchief was recognised and not the second player, and i am only 13 and only learned of halo about 2007 so i havent played all of them but tomorrow i am hosting a halo tournament at my school for halo CE on the school pc, and i am actually pretty good at it, my friend :iconspyroandc: is the schools halo champion, he has been playing it for as long as he can walk talk and play games, he is a halo nut, he can beat number 2 and number 3 in the school at the same time when they are on the same team(me being number 2 and his brother being number 3)

go have a talk to him, you might like him, he likes medium to light armour and heavy weaponry
i cannot beat him, he has been by himself on a team and has vs 15 other players on the other team and came out on first

Yep, I totally do! Way cooler than Spartans.

Say, did you used special brushes for this work, or did you just used the airbrush tool?
Reply
:iconghilliedninja:
GhilliedNinja Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Airbrush tool? :)

I used a really small default brush (Ps cs5) to sketch down the line drawing (Which i didn't use any references for so if anything is wrong and bugging you, sorrryy! ;) Did it from memory straight after playing ODST), then i just made that same brush bigger and drew in the odst's values in black and white. I then did a rough background and then added in colour across the whole piece so that non of the original black and white is showing :) After that i just used the blur tool to give the effect of a lens focal distance focusing on the closest side of the troopers helmet :) Hope that helps ;)

Yeah, I'm still using CS4, so there's an airbrush tool/brush I usually use to create nice colour flows. Kinda explains why I've never heard of your method of drawing ^^;
So thanks a lot for explaining!

It looks very good to me. It's even more impressive thinking that you drew the whole armour without reference but using your memory and imagination only. Especially the shape of the ODST's helmet is often hard for me to draw, but I think you did it very good here =)
