The fact that this is a pencil drawing makes it that much more amazing.

No problem!
I'm trying to learn to draw landscape stuff like this, myself. :)

I find landscapes some of the hardest things to draw so you you have picked an admirable goal! A good tip for starting out is to create a landscape using bits and pieces from a collection of base images. So after a while you will be able to just draw them out like it was nothing XD. Sorry if that was insulting your intelligence, I'm not sure how much practice you've had!

Thanks for the advice! That seems like a good way to start.
And no need to worry about insulting me— I haven't had much practice in anything. :XD:

Well just invest a little tome and you'll be surprised how soon you pick up new skills and before you know it, you will be drawing stuff three times better than you ever thought you could :). I look forward to seeing your future work!

4 solid hours, having said that, this is nothing compared to the UNSC Infinity (25 hours) and the upcoming UNSC Spirit of Fire (Up to 60 hours and not even half done!).

Hey no worries at all. We all have our separate methods. I take quite a while on my drawings as I feel the need to get every little line PERFECT, therefore I spend hours on each little detail. A few friends think I have Aspergers actually due to my ridiculous levels of patience. This is A3. And just to re-iterate, you cannot offend me with anything, we all have our own opinions and I am happy to hear everyone's thoughts. :)

It could be to be honest, I spend way too much time on the initial sketches an then draw over each line several times before I go on with the pens. Take a look through this album, it shows my process quite nicely: [link]

Beautiful artistic replication of a Spartan III's first-person view. You have excellent attention to detail, especially on the Rocket Launcher. I hope that you will try to make more in the future.

Cool. I too strive to put emphasis on details when I'm designing characters and scenery. It just shows your viewers that you desire to display only the best of your work to them and that you want all of your finished works to be at their best. This is one of the qualities that make us Deviants.

I am glad you think so, I am working on another Halo drawing... albeit very slowly. Simply entitled "The fall of Reach"... it has quite a lot going on in it.

Such as "Picked up a Rocket Launcher" and "Invasion Slayer"? It's not often when I see fan art of a SPARTAN's or Elite's or some other creature's perspective. Neither do I see much multiplayer art. Even less do I see those two combined.

Exactly, I almost left them out as I thought they would be missed. Glad you spotted them, nice to know that people look for things at the level :). As for doing a multiplayer one, I thought it would be something different

I've got no complaints. BUNGIE did make concept art for Reach Forge Mode, with a little more comedic elements than normal concept art.

Thanks! I was not too happy with the background, yes those lines are supposed to be waves. The really jagged lines curving up the side of the page are clouds. Not a great distinction between the two.
