It's really inspirational to look at the work you can do now and then see that you made this in 2004. I don't mean to say this is bad or anything, it just pales in comparison to the work you're currently producing. It gives me hope that one day maybe I can improve that much! :D

This HAS to be based off of the Cole Protocol.

Looking at how far you have come since this, the improvement is staggering. Gives hopes to us who think they'll never learn to do anything decent.

WOW, Nice job

Awsome! Reminds me of the part in "The Cole Protocol" where Keyes has to lead a bunch of ODST to infiltrate an Innie ship.

:+fav: for sure.

100% Awesome.

How you create something like this purely with the brush tool is beyond me. It must have taken weeks, or months.

Do you use a tablet and stylus? I imagine using the mouse for this kind of thing would be near impossible.

That's neat. It looks very realistic with the lighting. Must've taken a long time.

may I use this as a cover for my story/novel [link] I will accredit you and keep you updated.

im very happy to see that people are still seeing and commenting on this piece. I'm goin to actually start updating my page now, and since I'm going to be putting recent work on my page, I want everyone to just be aware that this one is pretty old and is beginning to show it in comparison to my newer stuff (I finished this one at the end of eighth grade).

and Prae7orian, you missed it on HBO cuz i never thought to post it there. I'm kind of surprised I didn't though, cuz it woulda been the perfect place to show it. Well, I might do a new version of this piece, so it might turn up there sometime in the future.

i luv odsts. this pic is crazy incredible.
MXCoriginal Featured By Owner May 21, 2006
Unbalieveable. You captured the very essence of Helljumpers.

But am I the only one who thinks that the guy on the right looks just like Joel Act(the guy who plays the voice of Caboose in Red vs. Blue)?
Prae7orian Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2005
and wow, I skipped the little blurb you had...100% brush tool? :wow:
Prae7orian Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2005
impressive, the helmet-less ODST here is outstanding. Nice lighting too, I'm surprised I haven't seen this on H.B.O. at all (or maybe I just missed that post :P). The only thing that stands out to me is the arm of the trooper in the background...seems a tad bit out of proportion, but it's no big deal. Still, awesome work. :thumbsup:

sweet man, I hope you have more stuff....or plan on making it.
Deriesne Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2004
O.O Amazing work dude. Did I ever tell you how much I envy you?
ekaj Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2004
Nice. The lighting setup is interesting. This piece makes me think of Doom 3 for some reason, even though this is obviously not set that far in the future. Must be the helmet and the shadows. Great first deviation, canít wait to see more.

It amazes me how IoKra critiques peoples work with such distain when his own skill level is FAR below the works of art he is criting , your piece is a VERY accoplished piece , I especialy like the face of the soldier as we all know faces are one of the hardest subjects to pull off with skill. Its a good moody atmospheric piece and you should be proud.
chasestone Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2004
iokra, i replied to ur message, but it didnt show up on this screen. So now im confused and curious as to if u recieved it at all (deviantart's wierd man). If ya didnt get a reply, then just holla and ill send another.
IoKra Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2004
Wow this is very good, even if the concept is slightly basic. How many layers does it have and how much time did it take?
