Master Chief by shadesoflove Master Chief by shadesoflove
My second attempt at drawing Mr. Chief.
Back to my good old fineliners and Promarkers for this one, with much more success than the previous submission!

I'm happy with it. :) Hope you like!

Haha I didn't really have any to begin with - I had to blend my olivey greens with dark greys XD Which is no small feat for alcohol based markers lol. My poor paper...

Hey mind telling me the color of promarkers you used on this one?

Hmm... let me consult my Letraset colour chart...
If I remember correctly:
- A mix of Pear Green+Cool Grey 2 and Olive Green for the armour because I didn't have any other muted green (though I imagine Moss or Marsh would have been better)
- Gold, Sunflower, Pumpkin and Orange for the visor
- Cool Grey 3, 4 and 5 for the dark bits
- Arctic Blue for sky, Cobalt Blue+Ice Grey 2 and Denim Blue for the forerunner structures (Arctic for the shiny bits)
- Apricot and Apple Green for the landscape

I quite like Chief's Halo 4 armour - it's a pain to draw, but it looks pretty cool XD

That's how I feel! Only with colored pencils XD and your digital is very good :) excited to see you working with traditional media again though :)

As much as I love the effects and unlimited colour palette available on digital media, nothing beats good old fashioned manual drawing with a pen/cil. I knew I invested in that heap of Uni Pins for a reason! XD
You're excellent with pencils, moar pictastic greenery soon yes? :)

Yes indeed! Methinks I shall begin on the song-pic for "You'll be in My Heart" tomorrow :) and I'll do it traditional.

Song-pic? Is it going to be Chiccolo? Looking forward :)
I've got a cutesy Piccohan almost finished and a suggestive Pic in progress - though both digital - so hopefully this weekend will be all Deviated up =P (Unfortunately my traditionals need to be family-friendly as I tend to work on them in the dining room >_<)

ShirePower Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Bahahaha! That's actually pretty funny (about the traditional)

Excited to see everything ;)

And eventually more Chiccolo, but the one song-pic I have planned is Pic and Gohan. Very soon I am going to do a funny little comic of Chiccolo though XD annnnd I'm starting a fanfic with them soon. I want to write a few chapters before I post it.

practice wouldn't help. I ended up with some hand damage a few years ago, and now struggle to hold a pen.

Just sad to hear of difficulty holding a pen to draw or write because of an injury. I have a chronic ankle problem from a years-old sports injury and find myself unable to walk from time to time after an aggravation and it's not nice. Hope it's manageable. No offense intended.
