Re: VTHU: Illustration Round 17

In Response To: Re: VTHU: Illustration Round 17 (TDSpiral)

: Sorry I'm late, professor! Had a bunch of work to get done, and had to put
: this on the back burner for a bit.


: Anyways, this is my ancient San'Shyuum warrior. This specimen's physicality
: is not mangled by years of inbreeding and old age. One of the things I
: wanted to get across with this was the fact that the Forerunners and
: Humans described the San'Shyuum as being muscular and beautiful. So I
: wanted to make their facial features much more human, less wrinkled and
: smushed.

: With the clothing/armor I was heavily inspired by an art book called
: "Art Deco Fashion Masterpieces". Originally I was going to go
: with a personal armor system like the Forerunners because I figured they
: would've already reverse engineered some of the Forerunner tech found on
: the Keyship. However, I felt that the influence of Art Deco in their
: design worked perfectly with their culture: grandiose, luxurious,
: indulgent, and oppressive.

: There's at least three little design easter eggs with this guy. I'll give you
: one since it's a bit obscure: the knives on his waist are based on the
: knife that the Prophet is wielding against the Sangheili in this image.

Haha, the one I was working on actually has a lot of similarities to this, especially with the cloak and pants. Yours is of course very nicely realized!

The thing I realized I was having so much trouble with was the feet. What the hell do they look like? AFAIK the only glimpse we've seen unless someone's grabbed the raw model and spun it around is Truth's feet in the Halo 3 Covenant cutscene. Couldn't tell how many digits they were supposed to have.
