"She said that once. About being a machine..."
Just a quick update on this, I've been working on some 2d-to-animated footage techniques over the past few days and this was the result!
I've been meaning to do a halo piece for a while now, so this is it! Was quite an enjoyable experience, a couple of issues that I'd like to fix at some point, but I need to move on and complete some portfolio work now.
One of the parts that really stuck with me throughout Halo 4 was Chief's struggle with Cortana's deterioration - a character that is able to take on entire armies on his own, but he is unable to do anything to prevent the loss of his only remaining friend that he was charged with protecting.. so I thought it would make a good theme for my first fan piece.
I used reference for the details of Chief's armour and Cortana (game renders etc).
All work done in CS3.
