Sorry for taking so long to get this one up and going. I didn't expect to win and when I did I was away on holiday with my family.

So, Artist Showdown. I've been a big Halo fan since the beginning. And no one outside of Bungie's concept artists has drawn more of the Master Chief than I have. (Click HERE or HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about) But I'd dearly love to see what the Comic Vine community can do with the last of the Spartan-II super soldiers. He's been a comic staple for years now, so let's give the Chief some love.

Incidentally, if drawing all that mecha isn't something your particularly interested in doing, feel free to use Cortana, SGT Johnson, or some other main character from the Haloverse. I wont hold it against you. Not everyone is interested in drawing that much Super Soldier armor. ;)

Would you be so kind as to pin this thread, and remove THIS one? Thanks! :)

Oops, forgot to place a deadline on this one. How is September 10th? Good? Good. Sorry about that. Also, here are some reference pieces from the Vine's character page.

Fantastic idea! I'll definitely come out of my hiatus to give this a shot. Can't deny the Halo U!

Here is my entry. :)

EDIT: posting an updated version. I botched the perspective on the pistol of the original. Got it fixed and uploaded the new version. I think this one is a lot less difficult to look at.

Wish I actually played Halo, oh well.

@mfundo: Well you don't need to be a player to enter the contest. Hell you don't even need to be a fan technically. As much as I enjoy the series, I'm not so much of a fanboy that I don't appreciate a little lampooning of the characters now and then.

bump because this deserves more.

God, I would love to post an entry, but I started to sketch, and while it looked half decent, I got angry and stopped.

Keep at it man. It can take a while to get that armor down, but it's worth it. If you need an extension on the deadline, say the word. :)

@ZZoMBiE13: I should've never stopped drawing >.<

Nah, I'll give it my best shot, but don't bother waiting up on me.

@Deranged Midget: There's still a week before the deadline anyway. But if anyone needs an extra day or two, we can always extend it. I'd really like to get a few more entries on this one.

I'm kinda letting my fanboy show here I guess. I really dig Halo. :)

@ZZoMBiE13: I'll give it my best shot, and trust me, so am I ;)

Today is the deadline for this one. I'd like to keep it open a couple more days in hopes that we could get at least one more entry. Is anyone else working on a submission? Close to done perhaps? Anyone?

Can you give me till September 12th? I just came up with an idea I like. Will submit tonight!

I know the idea is probably not too original, but I liked the concept. Hope you guys like it.

@momarkey313: That's amazing. Thanks for submitting an entry. It's sure to get a lot of attention during the voting round.

I'm still going to wait until tomorrow night in hopes that someone else has an entry to submit. *fingers crossed*

Well I was really hoping for another entry, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

I'll close this one down and put up a voting thread at midnight (central time). That's roughly 2 and a half hours from this post.
