HALO - - Deep Freeze by arcipello HALO - - Deep Freeze by arcipello
Heres the Halo piece ive being promising for so long
this is actually the second attempt, the first was an outdoor scene, it almost got finished but i couldnt stand the sight of it any i started again.

the quick story behind this

The covenent have captured hundreds of human soldiers and are currently keeping them in cold storage to use as hosts so that biological deseases can gestate within their bodies. they are then released back onto the human worlds with no memory of the events, and act as walking plagues.
The master chiefe and his men are hoping to put a stop to all of this.

never was one for stories

anyway heres a close up image of thr chiefe [link]

When ending a day you should never say “I could have”, “I should have”, or “I would have”. At the end of the day you should always say “I did”.The Only Failure is When You Say, “I Give Up.”

timittytim Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2009
why are they so fat?
xalener Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2009
Did you forget that armor is thick?

Buggest mistake bungie made in Halo 2/3.
timittytim Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2009
terrible excuse, who the hell wants 50 tonne immobile fat armour?

and no, there is no reason for body armour to be thick, especially in a fantasy Sci fi.
xalener Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2009
It's not immobile. It's power assisted.

There is a reason when the delvelopers make it that way. Yes it IS that was in H1.

Everything but the Chief's extended leg looks stunning. I can see the effect you were going for with the leg but it just looks over sized. The rest is phenomenal.

killer piece, and it sucks that I found it 6 YEARS after you posted it..damn...

anyway, keep up the good work
bobdd0 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2008
wow amazing!
EternalOn3 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2008
nice dude i would love to learn how to do stuff like that (lighting and such, fade away and textures) though everything good has its bad in my opinion they are too thick cause foreshortening doesnt exaggerate that much so they kinda look like gears of war characters. Also the covenant want to destroy the flood not spread it (i pay attention to the game) *stupified* the aliens dont want to make more zombies they want to kill them.
TheLaaarch Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2008
I know this is six years old already, but I must say... the lighting is wonderful, the colour scheme works perfectly and the angle of the camera emphasises the greatness of the storage. I can almost feel the cold when I look at it!
Phaedrolous Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2008  Student General Artist
Nice background, but I think you messed up the Chief's leg a little.
Arby412 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2008

This is the best, and probably the very first amazing Halo fanart ever to arrive in deviantART.

It's easily my favorite from your gallery, so may I ask if you know any other Halo fanart that was done much earlier than yours?

Some have pulled it off right after Halo 1's premier release, but I want to know those people who have done such fanart a long time ago.

I LOVE HALO! amazing work!
philostrate Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2008
Love the scenery, and although I'm quite impressed with the details on the characters, I'm not too hot for them.
