Grunt Rough by soulburn3d Grunt Rough by soulburn3d
I am a big fan of the Halo games, so did this piece of fan art for fun. The grunt characters are some of my favorites, not only do they have tons of personality, but overall I love the design. Since I own several of the McFarlane Halo Grunt toys, I did a little photoshoot, and used the photos as the basis for the character's pose. Painted in about 3-4 hours, the last couple of hours were mostly subtle color corrections, usually I start off with a pretty strong color scheme in mind, this one ended up coming together at the end of the piece.

"Halo" and "Grunt" character and all names of characters and the distinctive likeness(es) thereof are Trademarks of Bungie Inc.

I do agree that the grunts had the most personalty of any of the covenant races, but they were a little to comical for me, I like how they started to make them in ODST and Reach, a little more intimidating. It's difficult to see in game as you usually are a giant Spartan super soldier, but the grunts are built like silver-back gorillas, standing with their slouched postures at 5' tall.

  Oh, I was a bit off topic there, Great picture :D

haha. They were indeed quite comical, which I kinda liked, but I can see why it might break the mood if you were looking for something 100% serious. Like the take on the originals and the later more nasty grunts, it made sense to make them nastier in later games. Glad you dig the painting.

Great job with the colors, from the dull gray of his body to the bright pink of his needles. A very great job.

Wow, you made him look infinitely more threatening than he actually is in the game. XD
