    Check out my HALO paintings! (picture heavy)

    Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates. It's been kind of crazy. If anyone's interested, I've put the Noble 6 painting up for auction, and will continue to add more as they are finished. I was going to wait until I completed all of the Noble Team, but I am short of funds at the moment and...

    Check out my HALO paintings! (picture heavy)

    Sorry for the micro updates. This sketch is taking me a while because I'm drawing a lot of armor, which I struggle with a lot to begin with, and that stupid warthog, and I suck at drawing vehicles even more. Also, seeing my drawing on a screen helps me see mistakes, like Kat's jelly arm. It's...

    Thank you! Yes indeed they are oil. The Jun one was done with watercolor.

    UGH. Why do I make things so hard on myself? If I do this right, it should be the Noble team gathered around a warthog. But half the time, I don't know what I'm doing, so we'll see how this turns out. P.S. I don't know what's going on in this picture, either, so don't worry if you don't get...

    What should I draw/paint next???? I'm kind of out of ideas...and I still don't want to work on Kat. Mostly because I dont' have money to buy the paint I need...but also because that painting has become this giant looming dark beast I want to get away from. Throw me suggestions!!!

    I thought of this only after I poured paint all over it. I lack a brain, XD

    Finished the inking. Here it is BEFORE the detailing: AFTER detailing: Still don't know if I should color it or just finish it with black and white details.... =/

    Thanks for all the comments, everyone! I can't get myself to work on Kat's painting...so I tried something different. Here's progress on Jun that I'm working on atm: I need to finish inking/detailing it, then erase all the pencil. I'm still trying to figure out if I want to paint this with...

    Halo Weapons build from scratch *PIC HEAVY*

    That's really fast! This isn't my original idea; I've had a lot of inspiration from all you wonderful people on the 405th. The main chunk of this is from marshon's tutorial, and I'm eternally grateful to him for showing me an alternative to weapon building. He's got even better builds than mine...

    Halo Weapons build from scratch *PIC HEAVY*

    Thanks for all the comments, guys! Mag is not removable. The only functioning aspect of the gun is the safety that moves up and down. It was my first time building a weapon, so I wasn't sure it was even going to turn out okay. Thanks for the tips on the pre-spray painting, guys! That helps...

    Halo Weapons build from scratch *PIC HEAVY*

    The thought has crossed my mind. I didn't harden the pistol. I did do some final touches with bondo, but I didn't harden the entire thing with anything. What I found out was that foamboard foams don't do too well with the spray paint chemicals. However, the craft foam, if you saturate it...

    Reach Helmets Project *PIC HEAVY*

    Before: After: I'm wondering if I need to seal this with anything. I still haven't figured out what I'm going to do about the visor. I'll worry about it later since I don't have any money to do anything about it. I don't think I'm going to vacuum form it because I don't have a vacuum...
