The Planet is Lost... by GhilliedNinja The Planet is Lost... by GhilliedNinja
Here is a piece I have been doing on and off for about two weeks, it depicts a human planet, being glassed by a Covenant cruiser while the remaining Covenant fall back to be extracted off the planet :)

I really wanted to make the clouds look good as I am normally useless at them ;) So this was my attempt at a better style of doing clouds, so feel free to tell me what you think of them :) I only used two brushes on this piece, a chalk brush, and a soft brush for light glows and to aid in blending some parts :)

I hope you like it,

Enjoy xD

I really like this pic:)
But donīt like the new Banshee Design. In Halo 1 ,2, 3, 3 ODST and Wars its the same but then they change the design for Halo Reach._.

Well they started to change it for Wars by making the wings more blade-like and added a curvier cockpit, but I know what you mean ;) I like the halo 4 one though as I think halo needed a slight redesign and art direction as otherwise it would end up like COD where its the same art style every game which gets boring fast! Also the new design is a more plausible design that COULD work in the real world. You can tell they really thought hard about how the banshee might work and how it could pull off the fast manoeuvres that it has throughout the games and books :) So I like that when 343 took over, they gave halo a slight revamp, but kept it true top the halo universe that they had adopted :) 

Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you like this piece :)

Yeah, neither, i still have to finish 2 of the forerunner series ones, but the original series was incredible :P Got them all on my bookshelf at the moment :) Might re-read through them :) Also make sure you watch E3 live today as some halo 5 news will be coming out and possibly halo 2 and 3 remake news :) I love rumours and exciting secrets!!! xD

Yeah that would be cool:)
But we have a Halo 1 remake:)

Yeah, but 343 made that game using the reach engine supplied by Bungie, and I have a feeling that if they made a 'bundle' they would do the whole collection on one engine :)

Ahhhh just stunning work with this one pal :dummy: I love all the effects and colours you put on this, looks just awesome :noes:
Those banshees look really good, i love how you did the lightning and other effects on this one :meow: 
I think that the sky around the cruiser probably needs a bit more colours than only one hue, but its okay :lol: because that ground looks so freakking fantastic..all tose colours and little colourful shiny things,, amazing man, amazing :peace:
Those clouds look really good too, i love the orangeness on the other side of the picture :la: I think you did great with the clouds :icongreatjobplz:

Keep it up, still looking forward to get the commission >'D and actually
the price is 2400 for full coloured digital painting like the Pelican you did?? Because I happen to have 2600 points at the moment 8D~

Wow, thanks suvi! :aww: Im glad you like it! Yeah i made the sky just one tone so that the cruiser stood out, but i guess it does look a bit boring so if i ever do another piece like this one i will make it better! :D Thanks! Thanks, i love the clouds too haha xD

I love how the mountains turned out. The left one really reminds me of the Matterhorn in Switzerland XD
The battlecruiser looks a bit weird but the Banshees look really good and cold with that blue beam they leave behind. Also you did a good job on the clouds! =)

How much time did this drawing took to be finished?

Hahaha thats awesome :) Thanks! I just sorta went crazy on the mountains as I was really tired when I was doing them and so I kept working on them for waaaay longer than i expected to, but ah well! :D

I know.... It is bugging me a LOT! See i am trying to do these pieces without references but i kinda forgot how it looked, all i had to go by was my memory of the new alexandria mission i recently played on Reach xD but its dark in that mission so i couldnt remember any of the details properly :D I might actually sort it out and update this in the next few days (using reference xD) coz i want it to look good :D

Thanks a lot! Im REALLY glad you like the clouds haha xD

Erm, tbh i dont really know, as i didnt do it in one session, I reckon about 4 hours :)

Totally worth it. The structures on those mountains now look very... mountainish? :lol:

Ah, now I understand. It's not that bad for a work made up completely from memory. Just the nose looks a bit off. The entire hind section looks fine.
Speaking of the New Alexandria mission: If you do the Pelican trick, you can fly with that thing out of map and close up to the battlecruisers for a closer look if you want. Actually you can even fly through them but it's fun nonetheless, hehe.

You're welcome! ^^

Doesn't looks bad for about 4h of work though.

Yeah, the nose looks too....bubbly? I cant describe it but yeah ill sort it out :) 

Yeah i know, but i was doing LASO so i didnt wanna risk dying haha, but i will either do that, or ill just go on theater and take screenshots xD 
I love that easter egg so much! One of the best bungie has done ;) 

Thanks so much ^^

Yeah, bit it's only the nose that makes the cruiser look weird. The rest looks pretty good, especially the banshees =)

True, I've been flying around with this Pelican for hours! So much fun :la:

And again you're very welcome ;)
