They Say We Never Die by LordDoomhammer They Say We Never Die by LordDoomhammer
Started as a speedpainting, turns out I had too much fun playing around with the details :P
Used no reference whatsoever, just all out of my mind.

A high res print version of this is available at my buddies at HaloOrbit, check it out! :)

Here some other Halo Work from myself:

Really a beautiful moment, though there are many of those in all of Martin O'donnells soundtracks :)
I'll see what I can do next time I make a spartan ;)

nice composition. well balanced.

this has nothing to do with your picture other than it has the sniper rifle but I was always wondering if the Spartan armor has HUD display then why do you need to site thru a scope. Shouldnt the site route into the HUD?

Hm, good point. But maybe it actually does. I mean, you don't see them raise their weapons when they zoom like in other shooters, do you?

To be honest, I didn't have a specific spartan in mind while making this, so I leave it up to your imagination ;)

hey, i thought the laser ships were the cruisers, and that the laser is at the front in a ball turret?

:iconlorddoomhammer:
LordDoomhammer Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think you mistake these ships with the ones from Halo Wars. The CCS Battlecruisers as seen in Halo 1-4 have their beams coming somewhere from the hull. Look here at 1:05 [link]
But I know it isn't completely accurate in my version - have used no reference whatsoever ;)
