We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you an important news bulletin.
Thanks to everyone who voted, and we’ll continue with the Arachniturkey storyline shortly.
So here’s the final installment, featuring the appropriate lighting.
This also means that yes, it’s time to go vote! Just head over to the 343 Guilt O’ Lantern site. You get to vote for your favorite five pumpkins, which is good, since there are a bunch that are better than this one.
So here’s my first attempt at doing that whole “artsy” pumpkin carving procedure involving cutting at different depths to get different brightness levels when the thing is illuminated from the inside. (Cutting shallower also lets you get thinner lines without compromising structural integrity, which is nice.)
As you can probably tell, this is based off one of my previous “flood infection form” sketches. Therefore, being Halo-related and all, I decided to enter it in the annual Halo pumpkin carving contest.
Part 2 will show you what it looks like all lit up and pretty, and by then the contest’s voting should be open, so you can go support your favorite artist with a website that has albino and kraken in its name.
And here’s what they looked like in Halo 1… er, “Combat Evolved”, sorry.
Yes, I know… More Halo, but Bungie deserves it.
Anyway, I’ve always found these little guys pretty interesting, so this is a sketch I knocked out during one of the breaks in class last night.
They’ve actually changed quite a bit since their appearance in the first Halo, so I may have to try out the other iterations at some point…
