HALO: Charity Auction image by Cryptcrawler HALO: Charity Auction image by Cryptcrawler
Here's some more Halo work Ive had the pleasure of working on for Bungie.

I figure its pretty safe to post this low res versions since its been on the internet for months.



This particular piece was for a christmas charity auction for Child's Play which is just a kick-ass charity founded by Penny Arcade, you can find out all about it here: [link]

You can also check out the actual charity event photos here if you like [link]

This one was a beast for several reasons and it didnt have to be, but I made it hard on myself because I couldnt get my ego out of the way and as a result I delivered something that could have been better. Hopefully you guys can learn from my folly.
As I mentioned I hate using paintovers for a lot of reasons and decided that id not use any on this, so I started with the tank in the back and finished it moving toward camera.
That was a big mistake and I wasted valuable time trying to get the tank right at that difficult angle and without a lot of the visual hallmarks that give it its distinguished profile and silhouette.
I should have been smart and used a paintover but I chose the asshole "ooOOoohhh look at me" route.

Dont do that, be smart and professional. Client 1st, ego 2nd.

I decided to smarten up and use a paintover for the gun, but as a result of wasting so much time the additional soldiers in the background suffered and came out sloppier than I would have liked.

Hopefully my blabbering with give some of you something useful to take with you.

I hope you enjoy it guys and gals, take care of yourselves!
