I've done some deep digging for Halo: Reach reference material and these concept art pieces for the various helmet permutations have been worth their weight in gold.

Well, that`s some CONCEPT Art! Sometimes the basic stuff is the best. Love it.
It`s not always about the glossy high end pictures ( though i do like em obviously too).

After all i came to value the more military looking, rough helmet variants such as Hazop.
Still love my CQC and ODST buckets.

Technically not Concept Art (?), but Art nontheless. Made by Andrew Averkin for Blurs Cutscenes in Halo Wars 2DLC "Awakening the Nightmare".
The Guy makes much more, i find it to be very inspiring:

The Library Hall of Delta Halo, i would like to recreate that imagery in my Architectural series sometime.

Another all-time favorite of mine. Took a pic from my copy of the Halo Encyclopedia, unfortunately couldn`t find it online.
Cortana looks good:love: Chief buff as always:lol: Interesting to see the old style when her hair wasn`t dark...

If anybody knows a scource please give a link, i would like to know who did this.

Not official Concept Art, it`s good material for a printed poster maybe?
Found this a while ago. And where that came from is much more :D
Work by Eric Will who did stuff for the Halo Comic Series i believe...
I hope you like it as much as i do.

Something to show the true horror of the flood actually, so he says.

Cool. The last one is by Sparth and was already posted here (just mirrored). An all-time favorite of mine.

Now some real "concepts", for all ODST Lovers out there:

DUUUUDE. I love that last ODST. Looks freaking amazing. Sparth is an extremely talented artist, it’s insane.

Also, I found that art you were looking for. It’s by Isaac hannaford.

I met the guy at ECCC a few years back, a super nice guy. You can see his watermark next to chief’s left thigh.

Nice....
Thanks for your effort! Have heard of him. I really like Halo 3 paintings. Especially those used in the skyboxes of that game.

Hope to see more reveals of this kind in an upcoming Halo Infinite vidoc similar to the sprint series of H5.
An entire episode of concept art.....:love:
