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, 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 :)
