The Return - HECAC by Slaskia The Return - HECAC by Slaskia
Oof, I've been sitting on this one for a while: finally just pushed through and finished it. However, even if I did finish this earlier, I wouldn't have posted it until about now anyway.

Why? Cause the lineart version of this I submitted to the Halo: Evolutions Community Art Contest ([link]), and I didn't want to take the chance of some ass stealing it and trying to submit it as their own entry (last day they accepted entries was July 31st). Seriously doubt I'll be picked, as I know there are artists out there that would kick my butt.

Anyway, as the title says, this was based off the short storty The Return in the Halo: Evolutions book.

And it is plainly obvious I really suck at environments....especially coloring them. I was mainly experiementing with different shading techniques anyway....

Never really credited 'you' per say.
They credited the halo wiki.

Just a head's up.

I can understand being afraid of 'false women' like that, especially if you've had bad experiences with such in the past.  You are forgiven.

Rtas?

Slaskia Featured By Owner May 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
No. Just a random, unnamed, Sangheili. Couldn't be Rtas anyway, since he guy had all his mandibles in the animated version (not to mention he wasn't a shipmaster at the time the character glassed the planet he returned to in the story).

Hehe, no, the only art piece I've posted on HBO was the colored version of my contest submission. Plus some of my subject matter I don't think would be well recieved on there. (Sangheili fanatic? Yes I am.) So you haven't missed anything. :)

This is a really high quality Sangheili picture. I've not seen that many of this quality. The thigh-pads in particular look fantastic.

Oh yay! It's a wonderful piece!

Is that the black scar in the groud i the background there? And he's holding a human bone ...

I didn't really like this story in book-form, but it took on a whole new tone and feeling when read out loud in first-person format in the Waypoint version, don't you think?

I hope you get this published. :)

This reminds me a hell of a lot of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2.

Wow, this looks fantastic! I love how the Elite himself turned out, and the background environment looks great too! It's not really sucky at all. He seems to be pretty heavily focused on that bone.

Wow... just wow :O I love this piece!

Where to start? The Sangheili himself has some beautiful detailing, I really love the attention you paid to the armor and his facial expression! The shading here and there really make things pop.

I like the contrast between the Sangheili and the background itself, it almost looks like a painting compared to him. And it really gives the impression of a 'dead planet' in contrast to his bright armor.

Fantastic job! You never cease to amaze me ^_^

I remember this was put up on Halo: Waypoint, loved it, and I think you captured the emotion excellently here with his sorrowful eyes and that almost regret spread over his very well detailed face. I think the background works quite well, the burned earth beneath his feet and the storm above him.
What I'm trying to say all in all is I love this piece. Well done!

Not, this was on a human colony world the Shipmaster in the pic had personally glassed. He returned there to find a purpose some 6 years after the end of Halo 3.
