Halo - Museumby trooper226

A museum of the events of Halo, spanning the insurrection to the return of the Forerunners. This particular section was devoted to Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy John-117, and many many years after the events of Halo he is remembered as a legend. His different suits of MJOLNIR power armor are on display, from the Mark IV on the left to the Mark VI Version 2 on the right, kept pristine with cleansing gas inside each case. Gazing at the suits of armor is a 6 year old boy, the same age as John when he was kidnapped by the UNSC. I did this to try and show the scale of his growth, from a little boy to a giant fighting machine. In the background, you can see the years John lived (almost), and a hologram of a Covenant Super Carrier that John destroyed in orbit above Earth.

Song for this piece: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaKUlt…

I contemplated how to do this piece for a while. I was originally going to have it in more of an Iron Man style with his suits displayed in a lab, but the piece didn't start well and I scrapped it and went with a museum instead. I've said this before, but I think this is my best digital piece yet! What do you guys think? Oh, and an Attack on Titan - Halo crossover collab with GTPanda is definitely coming to a dA page near you!

UPDATE: I forgot my screen is really saturated, so on everyone else's screen sometimes my pictures look gray. I fixed it though, you guys like it?

Actually during Halo 3's marketing period, they did a fictional documentary about UNSC war veterans, you should check it out!

Nice work. However, i wanted to point out that his current armor his wearing now is still the same armor he wore in Halo 3, but when he was in cryo sleep for 4 years, Cortana upgraded Chief's armor by it's overall apperance. But overall, this is fantastic!
