Umm el-Omad (“mother of all needles”)

Wadi Nefud, Libya

200-400 CE

The tombs offers a couple of suprises. The Corinthian columns are completely Roman, but the shape of the monuments is Punic. The epitaph, for example, is flanked by two eagles, which is customary in this area. The false doors have their closest parallel in the art of ancient Egypt. Oddly, the false door in the northern monument faces the southeast, and not - as one would have expected - the west, the realm of the dead. Perhaps the person who lies buried here, a man named Ben Hamdan, wanted to connect his tomb to the Unconquered Sun (Sol Invictus), which in December rises in the southeast.


The backgrounds of the Master Chief Collection

I’ve managed to capture the backgrounds for each of the games in Halo The Master Chief Collection. Going from top left to bottom right we have:

  • Halo The Master Chief Collection
  • Halo Combat Evolved / Anniversary
  • Halo 2 / Anniversary
  • Halo 3
  • Halo 3: ODST
  • Halo 4

- S-B312 -
Halo Saga

As the war with the Covenant Empire continued, the demand for high-risk, SPARTAN operations deep within enemy territory rose exponentially. This demand lead the UNSC’s Special Warfare Command to commission several new breeds of SPARTAN teams in both S-II and S-III classes. SPARTAN B312 (later known as Noble Six) was chosen to join this gifted few.

Daily Drawing Challenge 83: I was fiending to draw some Noble Six fanart, and I sorely miss the ‘tactical, utilitarian’ halo aesthetic of olde. So i thought I’d scratch that itch by drawing S-B312 patrolling with a nameless comrade on a nameless world. The smoking corpse of an Sangheili beside them. Also keep your eyes peeled for some Halo Wars 2 fanart! Moreover I’m thinking of doing some commission work - if you’re interested, message me (more on this later this summer).

Weekly content update once again on my drawing…

The forearm design is in the rough stages. Using Tekka-Croe’s design from DeviantArt for the Mark V arms and legs. I am so not used to using a tablet, that I am comfortable with showing little-by-little progress, rather than one big surprise at the end. :P

I will also do little design changes to make the Mark V helmet up to date with Halo 5′s Delta variant of it. :)

More updates to come. 

the halo antagonists and their motives

the flood: absorb all life in the cosmos to become a mirror of the domain, but twisted from the misery and suffering of the minds it’s consumed
the ur-didact: composing humanity as punishment for what he accuses them of and to serve his quest to destroy the flood and save the galaxy
the covenant: activate the rings and achieve transcendence
mendicant bias: [see the flood]
the created: ???
