Only Human by bluemattersoda Only Human by bluemattersoda
Welcome to Mombassa.
Here it started
and here it will end

Well, i was very close to abandoning this piece, but thanks to everyone's encouragement I finished it off. So thank you every one who offered support and advice - i am truly grateful.

But yep, i'm off to Hong Kong in a few hours, and it's exactly 30 mins to new year where i live, so I guess I should say Happy 2008!!!

again, I can't stress how thankful I am for your support (you know who you are ;) ) - I am now a lot happier with this piece, in fact, very happy :D

thanks all for viewing!

Closeup details:[link]

ps: i felt like adding that i used only a couple of textures in this - the camouflage texture, the hessian bag texture for the gloves and some slate textures for some of the rocks. the scratches, foreground rocks and everything else were hand drawn with a tablet

It's a play on the phrase "we're only human". Apt for a story about extraterrestial genocide!

It's because the Halo 3 ODST main characters are just ordinary humans

ROFL yeah true. I might take it to Staples though and get the HUGE print so it can go on the wall with my Marine stuff xD

Brilliantly done. Expecially all those scratches and marks on his armour.
