I Finally Got His Helmet!! ::IMG::
By:SEspider
Date: 3/13/13 10:07 pm

Hey guys.

An idea came to me last night for a shirt design for Xbox Gamers. Some of my favorite Xbox memories have come from a little game called Halo. Yeah, I understand no one has heard of this game before. There's no reason to design for something that wouldn't sale. yadda yadda. I like the game and that's enough for me. lol

Anywho, my favorite of the 10+ year series is the original game. Open feel of the game, the fun of it, the story, and of course, the characters. Of the many memorable A.I voice-over lines in the game, one in particular seems to stick out. It comes from a random Grunt after the player dies. "Can I Have His Helmet?!" In the novels, YapYap the Grunt has been my favorite. So I figured I'll play tribute to YapYap, all Grunts, and the Original Halo game with the below image.

I made some clear changes to the design of the Grunt character's (let's name him PayPay) design to make him my own. Brought in elements from Halo 1 up to Halo 4. Changed his plasma pistol's design. I've also changed the look of the Master Chief helmet by also bringing in elements from a few past games to make it my own. It's a true Parody.

Before I start on it, I'd like a few suggestions. Like what color to make his armor. Was thinking of making him Red and a blue spartan helmet as a montage to Halo's MP mode. Then there's the background. Do I place him in front of a large ring? I want the background image to be simple so not to take away from the main image but also clearly related to Halo. But outside of a ring or possible a very large High Charity silhouette I'm pretty much at a lose of ideas. Shading will be left in black to make printing much cheaper. As per the Threadless standards.
I think each and every comment and suggestion. Please remember that the below is just a sketch. Lines will be cleaned up.
