A sketch page based on a Pre-Halo event Fire Team Quiver when they first received their MJOLNIR Mark IV armor systems. Before that time they wore the SPI Armor Systems as they are SPARTAN IIIs.
I wanted to add more sketches, like 3 of the Spartans taking down a Mgaelekgolo or even more CQC between Spartans and Sangheili and Jiralhanae. But decided that nah! I don’t have any good design/angles for these moments and I want to save them for the comic in the future.
Something Iv'e realised about the Cortana app on xbox (you know that AI helper thing Microsoft marketing department named after a character that’s currently gone Skynet on the Halo Universe) is it sure seems to respond easily to “Hey King Kong”.
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. :)
