Dawn Under Heaven: Concept 1 by RoxyRoo Dawn Under Heaven: Concept 1 by RoxyRoo
@w@ awesome.


My first colored concept for Dawn Under Heaven, a "story about hope, about friendship, about love, and sacrifice in light of overwhelming odds. And itís a film created by those who care about it the most: diehard Halo fans." Essentially, it's a live action fan film about Halo, the video game.

The image is very large. This is probably the best piece of digital art I've done to date, and I've very proud of it. :heart:


:bulletblue: If you're a Halo fan, or just curious:

Great use of scale and emotion from the Marines on the ridge. Really captures just how big this valley is. 

Have to say though, a boat that size would do more than make a bounce...

There's seriously a movie about Halo now??? Oo? Dude. You are some kinda master-artist. D8.... If there's anything I can say I like more than your cosplay sometimes, its your drawings. And I meant to ask you, because I've been gone forever, -_-; How far along are you with your Glass River comic? 8D!!!!

This is really fantastic, the details of the grass and light around the soldiers is a nice touch against the blocky shapes you used to describe the mountains! * u *

I suspect it's not so much driving as it is flying and burning (like how I drive).

There's like 5 or 6 big fan films being made right now. Faith has some great concept art, and so does Operation Chastity, for that matter. 2011 seems like the year for fan films. XDD

I know! I'm very happy for it! Maybe it'll send a message to the big wigs that the Halo movie should be made a reality!
