CQB by Palulukan CQB by Palulukan
This is a commission I did for a friend. He has a huge love for the CQB helmet so there was a little bit of pressure to get it absolutely right but I had great fun and really enjoyed using the markers with very little line-work. The only black line on the helmet is the outline, the rest is built up with markers and I think the finish works really well.

There are little things on there that won't be clear to most people as to why they are there but they are meaningful to the person who this piece belongs to and that is all that matters.

Hope you guys like it!

Peace

I go mark V (not mark V (b) just plain mark V). Love how theres no random lines on the helmet visor like mark VI altough my new favorite is mark VII. Nice, would never be a ble to have right proportions like that

I can only think of Caboose from RvB when I think of the mark 5 and so cannot take anyone who wears that helmet seriously. Thank so much, just takes practice and you just have to transfer what you see on to paper.

I have my doubts about how good Halo 4 will be. It looks like they have done alright with the campaign but multiplayer has some HUGE issues that bug me. (Instant spawn (even if it is only on some playlists - it isn't something halo needs), promethian vision, loadouts... the list goes on.) Not to mention the horrible armour they have come out with so far. It's sad but I guess I just have to wait and see.

It is copics with some graphite pencil for the scratchy details, white gel pen for the highlights and I can't remember if I used a white colouring pencil to add texture and soft highlights but that is what I usually do. I am glad you are interested. Thank you very much!

Thanks a lot! Yeah, this is all copics - the brush tip is really nice to work with on something like this. I noticed your custom build armour in your gallery. How is that coming along?

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it - a lot of people don't understand the flower but it has more meaning to the person who this was for so it doesn't matter. (:

Ya, well, it's an emblem, right? It reminds me of the SPARTAN, Daisy from Halo Legends.

Yeah it's an emblem, the CQB lover who this is for is a gardener and so he and our friends use it in the Halo games. So Halo 4 better include this emblem. (:

Haha, I'm sure the person this was for would love that introduction, I'll tell him and let him see what he thinks. Thanks very much. Always liked that the scout looks like it has a watering perch for birds at the front or a water scoop.

Thank you very much, it gave it a nicer more realistic style rather than being cell shaded and 'cartoony'.

My friend who this was created for is a gardener and this is the emblem that him and I plus some other friends use in the Halo games although the centre differs between us. So it's just a personal touch. Thanks for the favourite.
