Storm Halo! LOL
Man, I got to say: this was my best artwork so far now. I had a HARD time making it.
I really apreciate the fact that photoshop has the Pen tool.
I could draw the lineart thanks to it, though I did have to research a lot of official artwork, because I couldn't do it from scratch without a model. :/
Everything was just fine until I removed the lineart. :iconoh-god-why-plz: Holy crap, I had to adjust SO many things...
I won't paint Master Chief EVER again, at least, not in this style... He was a real pain... >.<

I know it's easy to see Piper, but what makes us identify Aerrow if we can't see his face? Well, simple! The red helmet is a hint to his red hair, the green visor is a tip to his green eyes, the red and blue armor are hinting at his clothes too! :D

Now let's hear why did I do this!
Piper as Cortana: Well, both are smart and sweet. Their personalities do match a lot. Both like adventure, they're equaly skilled (intelectually), and both care a lot about their friends! Also, both have an "evil" side - Piper has the binding, a power that can make her become evil, and Cortana has the rampancy, an state that makes her lose control of her mind and can as well lead her to the evil side!

Aerrow as Master Chief: In this case, those two actually differ a bit - while Aerrow is very talktive, Chief is quiet - but they still have some similarities. For those that have some "advanced" knowledge about Halo, you'll know that there's this line that talks about Chief and it's what made me choose Aerrow to be him:

"He is neither the smartest nor the fastest nor the strongest of the Spartans. But he is the bravest - and quite possibly the luckiest. And in my opinion, he is the best." - Dr. Halsey to Cortana.

You got to agree that Aerrow meets every single word here.
He's NOT the smartest of the team, Piper is, and even if we don't count her, Stork was shown as smarter, but his paranoia sometimes gets on the way.
He's NOT the strongest, Junko is.
He's NOT the fastest either (and no, that race from episode 9 doesn't count, because he was using a vehicle, I mean fast as in, running with your legs). In several episodes, we have seen that all his team mates run faster than him.
But he is, without doubt, the bravest of the team and also the luckiest. We rarely see him having bad luck. The others have their share of bad luck more often.

~~~

Well, that's all! I hope you guys enjoy! And don't forget to check out my upload about the picture that inspired me! ^^

He's red and blue with a green visor to hint at Aerrow's appearance. XD
You know, Aerrow's red hair, green eyes and red and blue uniform.

The description explains with more details the resemblances between Aerrow and Master Chief and Piper and Cortana as well. :)

Well, I drew the lineart first, using the pen tool, so I could get straight lines (something I wouldn't be able to do with the mouse without this tool). ^^;

Then, creating MANY layers, I started painting, using only color, brushes and the smudge tool. :meow:

To make Pipertana look transparent, I duplicated her layer, the original was as normal with opacity at 20% and the copy was as overlay at 100% opacity, so she'd not disappear in the background. :)

The hologram effect (those straight lines covering her) was made from scratch, it wasn't a filter. I created the pattern myself and filled a new masked layer with it. :D

Thank you for the :+fav:! I'm glad you enjoyed my artwork. Feel free to browse the rest of my galery. :love:
