Hello Community members! I would like to share with all of you a few pieces of work that I have done and am planning to do. I will be doing renderings of battles scenes (mostly) and some other renderings including night time shots, book cover art, and visually bringing to life some moments from the campaign and books. I know there is a "night time" screenshots thread, but I will be doing my own interpretations. Some renderings will only encompass Spartan and Elite character models and others will "try" to encompass other Covenant models. I will be using the Halo 3 game engine to make these. I could use 3DS Max or Cinema 4D for some truly captivating images, but I don't have time at the moment to build and render 3D models. *All images captures made with two controllers, and anywhere between 30-50 screenshots for the background and character models. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [b][u][i]Section 1 - Battle Scenes[/b][/u][/i] [i]Non-cannon[/i] #01 - [b][url=http://max2107.deviantart.com/art/Recovery-98843485]Recovery[/url][/b] [u]Description:[/u] This is a rendering of a Spartan recovery squad (Green Team), securing a D-77 TC Pelican (Victor 398) crash site, whom are ambushed by an Ultra Elite Unit (before the Great Schism). The Spartan team was ordered to secure the crash site and retrieve the A.I., Elena, that was onboard and being transported back to HQ. (Valhalla) [Completed 09-24-08] #02a - Sentry - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Night patrol at Fort Parangosky, one of the few remaining outposts near New Mombasa during the First Battle of Earth. It is currently being run by three different Spartan II squads (E.V.A., Scout, and Rogue), and is a key foothold behind enemy lines. The Rogue unit's main objective is the safety and security of "Fort P", while the E.V.A and Scout units carry out reconoissance missions. (High Ground) #02b - RTB - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] A Spartan II recon squad, E.V.A. and Scout units, returning to Fort Parangosky from a night time reconnoissance mission. The reconoissance convoy consists of three M274 ULATV Mongeese, two M12 LRV Warthogs, and two M12G1 LAAV Gauss Hogs. Little did they know, the Covenant was doing reconoissance on them as well. (High Ground) #02c - Vindication - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Fort Parangosky, a human outpost near New Mombasa, behind enemy lines during the First Battle of Earth, was being watched by Covenant forces. They strategized a plan of attack and carried it out with a squad of Elite Majors and a Spec Ops Elite Unit, commanded by two Ultra Elites. The fort is being defended by three batlle-hardened Spartan II squads, E.V.A., Scout, and Rogue units. (High Ground) #03a - Vedette - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Daily Patrol rendering of the communications and missile base, Stanforth Missile Base. The base is located on the outer fringes on New Mombasa and is about 16km from Fort Parangosky (High Ground). The missile base is currently being defended by two small platoons of Spartan II's, standard Spartans in Mark VI armor and a special Security unit. (Standoff) #03b - Reinforcements - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Two small Spartan II platoons charged with defending the communications satellites and missile silos at Stanforth Missile Base, received word of an attack on Fort Parangosky and knew that an attack at Stanforth Missile Base was imminent. They were pleased to see that some of the surviving Spartans from "Fort P," had survived the attack and retreated there to assist the units currently posted there. (Standoff) #03c - Shield - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] With a massive Covenant offensive on their hands, the Spartan II's had to defend the this vital base and not let it fall into Covenant control.

(Standoff) #04a - Evacuation - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] A UNSC Underground Facility "Crow's Nest" was located 24km west of Voi, but fell under attack from the Covenant Loyalists. The east wing of this facility was temporarily housing six Spartan II soldiers, each wearing their specialized armor for their specific soldier objectives and when the attack came, they had a side mission to assist John-117, the continuing evacuation of the stranded Marines. (Rat's Nest) #04b - Renege - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] With 5:43 left until the detonation of "Crow's Nest," Master Chief was diverted the basement elevator, while the remaining Spartan II's retreated with several marines to the last D77 TC Pelican.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Obi Wan Stevobi Wait, I don't get the cover art section, unless you are the one that actually did the cover art. Excuse my ignorance if you are.[/quote] Oh no, I merely provided the original image as a reference, but I will be doing my own renditions, using the Halo 3 game engine.

    [b][u][i]Section 3 - Storyline Art[/b][/u][/i] - (Halo 3 game engine and real world images) [b]==== Fall of Reach ====================================================[/b] #01 - Jericho VII - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] The Battle of Jericho VII, February 12th, 2535. Blue Team's (John-117, Kelly-087, Fred-104, Will-043, and Linda-058) main objective was to draw out the Covenant's rear guard, so that Red Team could plant a HAVOK tactical nuke in hopes of destroying a Covenant ship. The battle was ultimately lost, even though the Spartan teams completed their objectives and Jericho VII was glassed by the Covenant fleet. #02a - Sigma Octanus IV - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] The Battle of Sigma Octanus IV, July 18th, 2552. In the city of Côte d'Azur, a Spartan II team (John-117, Fred-104, James, Kelly-087, Joshua-029, and Linda-058) infiltrates the Covenant controlled city, via the city's storm drains. #02b - Côte d'Azur Museum of Natural History - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] The Battle of Sigma Octanus IV, July 18th, 2552. In the city of Côte d'Azur, the Spartan II team investigates the Côte d'Azur Museum of Natural History, and discover that the Covenant are interested in a specimen of igneous rock, and engage a new race from the Covenant, the Mgalekgolo. [b]==== The Flood =======================================================[/b] #03 - Alpha Base - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Installation 04, September 20th, 2552. A Forerunner structure on Installation 04 that was located on a butte, and was originally a Covenant held base, but was captured by a battalion of ODST's led by Major Silva. The base was renamed HS2604 by the Class-C Military A.I., Wellsley. #04 - [b][url=http://max2107.deviantart.com/art/AotCR-Blizzard-98542754]Assault on the Control Room[/url][/b] [u]Description:[/u] This was my submission for the Hawty McBloggy Recon Contest (top 5 submission), in which I recreated a moment from Halo: Combat Evolved. Installation 04, September 21st, 2552. During Assault on the Control Room, when you are on the bridge over the valley and you encounter the Gold Zealot (Elite). The image contains a Banshee, a Shade turret, a Gold Zealot Elite, three regular Jackals, five Grunt Minors (one dead), and three Grunt Majors (one dead). [Completed 09/21/08] #05 - Truth and Reconciliation - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Installation 04, September 23rd, 2552. The Covenant CCS-class Battlecruiser that was retaken by Major Silva and his men near the final moments of Installation 04. Melissa McKay, Company grade officer and second in command behind Major Silva, decides to cut the cable to a vital energy line for the ship, sending the Truth and Reconciliation crashing onto Installation 04, killing everyone onboard. Her reasoning behind the sacrifice was the Flood, if one small specimen managed to get aboard the ship and make it to Earth it could take billions of lives. [b]==== First Strike ======================================================[/b] #06 - Castle Base - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] The Battle of Reach, September 16th, 2552. Located inside Mechanite Mountain on Reach, Castle Base was an ONI facility two thousand meters underground where the remaining Spartan II's (Will-043, Vinh-030, Isaac-039, Fred-104, Kelly-087) met up with Dr. Halsey and retreated farther into the newly discovered Forerunner caves to hide from the Covenant. [b]==== Ghosts of Onyx ===================================================[/b] #07 - Torpedo - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Operation: TORPEDO, Pegasi Delta, July 3rd, 2545. A Spartan III operation carried out by Beta Company, the objective was to destroy a Covenant refinery, in effect crippling the Covenant supply line. The mission itself was a success, but at the cost of all 300 Spartan III's, minus Tom-B292 and Lucy-B091. #08 - Will-043 - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Onyx, November 3rd, 2552. One of the most highly courageous of the Spartan II's, Will was extremely skilled in hand-to-hand combat, and didn't even think twice about engaging a Hunter pair, at the Core Room Antechamber. The Covenant forces stopped firing because no one had ever grappled with a Hunter in hand-to-hand combat before. Will managed to kill one Hunter before the second killed him with Assault Canon, helping the others escape through the portal. #09 - Kurt-051 - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] Onyx, November 3rd, 2552. Lieutenant Commander Kurt Ambrose, CO of the remaining Spartan III's and a former Spartan II, decides to sacrifice his own life for his old and new brothers and sisters. Dr. Halsey and the remaining Spartan II's and III's retreat inside the rift of Micro-Dyson Sphere while Kurt remains on the other side to stop or deter the Covenant assault. Severely injured the Hunter that killed Will, Kurt is then approached by a gold Zealot elite and asked if he is ready to die, it is then before his death that he has a vision/hallucination of all his fallen Spartan comrades behind him and he says to the Zealot, "Die? Didn't you know? Spartans never die." At that moment he presses the detonation trigger of the two FENRIS nuclear warheads killing him and all the Covenant species in the area. [b]==== Contact Harvest ==================================================[/b] #10 - Utgard - Coming Soon [u]Description:[/u] The Battle of Harvest, February 24th, 2525 (assumed). The small agricultural planet, Harvest, was the location of the first encounter between Humans and the Covenant. A peace agreement was attempted, but failed and thus began the long Human-Covenant War. The one-sided battle, was killing many people and making many people flee as refugees, and it was up to the Harvest militia to ferry them and help the remaining population escape. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I would like to hear everyone's comments and [b]*constructive*[/b] criticism. I am not the best at image editing, I consider myself somewhat decent, so if you are way more advanced than me, please give some advice. [b]I am more than open to suggestions for renderings you would like to see visualized[/b]. I will be updating these periodically, weekly, bi-weekly, or even tri-weekly, depending on how busy I am. [b][u]Note:[/b][/u] Unintelligent, insulting, and spam remarks will not be tolerated and will be consequently reported.
