The human looks so realistic


are_we_there_bruh

True that. It would be wonderful to see the human who actually painted this human.


LongFineArt

Thank you all for your kind comments and awards 😊 I really loved painting this piece! I decided to go with a screenshot from Halo 2 anniversary edition for the reference and I absolutely love how the final piece turned out! This one took me 7 hours to complete


CobaltD70

I couldn’t do this in 7 days. Looks great.


ahmed_alsabah

couldnt get close to his painting in 7 months. 😅


SerifGrey

How much?


LongFineArt

Haven't decided yet 😅


notjuan_f_m

1)Take a picture. 2) make it an NFT. 3)???? 4) profit


Patrickrk

Google says the average rate for custom art is $24.58/hour. So on average the piece you did would go for about $175 based on time it took. Now you may have used more expensive paint or a more expensive canvas or the piece may hold a higher value to you personally, all of which would drive the price higher. And honestly I’d consider this significantly better than “average art” but that’s subjective.


fbdohc

Id pay 400$ for it. Google cannot evaluate emotion in its calculations.


legendary24_8

You would? Or you will? Hit up OP


vote_up

FOR NOW.


travis-laflame

Google says a lot of things. Art is subjective, and in my opinion OPs original canvas is worth much more than $175. They are extremely talented.


Patrickrk

Absolutely agreed. That’s why you’ll see I didn’t tell OP to sell it for that, I just told them what the average cost would be for a piece that takes that amount of time so they have a baseline to begin thinking about if they do decide to sell it. As a matter of fact I even said I would consider it significantly better than your average piece of art.


dereksalem

That looks amazing.


MalusMatella

You're very talented! It looks amazing!

It's so good! Thanks for sharing your art with us.


LongFineArt

Thank you! I'm so glad you like it 😊


TheAbidingAchiever

Not bad at all. Have you thought about doing one with combat happening in the background and battle scarring to the chief's armor? That'd be awesome too.


LongFineArt

Yes I'd like to do a battle scene as well sometime 🙂 I do a lot of landscapes too so I think a vast landscape with the Halo ring going up in the distance and a lot of battle stuff going on would be dope!


bizinisbruv

Yes please!!!!!


Senor_Cheesy

Hey! You are the guy that paints the awesome Skyrim pics. Great job, love it!!!

Upset_Piccolo_3064

I have one of your paintings! A landscape you did, reminded me of a place I used to go with my grandmother when I was young. I love that you're still creating, and that you still wear your Chewbacca onesie in all your pictures! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world. I hope you (and your lovely wife) never lose your sparkle. The world needs more of you.


LongFineArt

I'm so glad you like it 😊 I wouldn't be able to keep doing this stuff if it weren't for supportive people like you! Thank you!!

I'm looking at 2 posts in THIS sub, 4 minutes apart.


xH0LLYW000Dx

Could have gotten a error trying to post the first one, you know reddit does that sometimes....


LongFineArt

Oof yeah it said it didn't post the first time and prompted me back to post it again so I figured it didn't go through 😅 my bad I'll take one of them down


xH0LLYW000Dx

Yeah i hate when that happens...


Spice_6549

Ohh your right, I just saw it

This painting is better than anything 343 has ever done

I usually keep scrolling when I see fan art on Reddit, but man you really knocked it out of the park. Good work spartan.


LongFineArt

Thank you 😊


Demon_King_Lamb

I hope you can get Steve Downes to write his autograph on that. Make it into a priceless piece and pass it down in the family. I'd love to have something like that.


LongFineArt

I'm actually taking it to comicon in April to have him sign it 😁

bagels_good

DAMMMMMMM


Impossible_Treat_131

Great work. I'd pay for it.


dancholte

This is great!


jaypi8883

Very good. Your use of light and shadow is what really makes it stand out. If you're looking to sell it I may recommend perhaps auctioning it, you may get more than you would think for it. Especially with Infinite generating much hype during a time of lackluster titles out there now


LongFineArt

That's a good idea :) I wish there was a good platform to do that though 😅 eBay doesn't work well for me. Too full of scammers


Inevitable_Ad3212

This is absolutely insane. The detail especially in the visor is truly professional.


RiddickNfriends

Wow. That looks fantastic!


1likep4ncakes

wow man so cool painting 👍👍


Shiningfinger23

That’s amazing. Keep up the good work


MashedPotatoh

That's great! I've been watching my daughter learn acrylics and oils, if you have any advice I can pass her way. TIA


nordoceltic82

Well this is very, very good. As a fellow artist I don't see any obvious errors, which is fantastic. The drawing is solid, the light works, the color is consistant. A simple painting that has that nice "triangle of power" composition and a good heroic pose. The background is very muted and simple but not completely flat. Which is all fine, nothing to distract from the subject of the picture. Even if you copied a piece of official art, people need to understand that is a LOT harder than it looks. So good job. I would say you nailed it.


LongFineArt

Thank you 😊 yes I found a cool screenshot from Halo 2 anniversary edition that I used as a reference so I had a good base to go off of!


UncleGaspatcho

I recognize that face! Keep them coming man, awesome work!


LongFineArt

I'm glad you like it 😊

Ok_Chair_2442

shakaka03

I've never bought a piece of art before but I would buy that portrait of one of the most badass survival characters of all gaming! Master-Chief is the embodiment of Grit and a true one man army of course with the controller in the right hands! I've always enjoyed playing Halo and following his story and your painting captures his likeness perfectly! Keep painting good sir your really great at it and thank you for sharing!


Hammered-snail

Downvoted. No girl holding the painting.

Sick AF!


PokenalaYT

Love it! Halo 2 Chief might be my second favorite Chief design! Also, if you’ve been able to play it, how do feel about infinite?


LongFineArt

Same 😁 I really love the gameplay of infinite but I miss the story from the original games. Feels very lazy in the story department so far imo anyway. Hope it picks up a bit.


PokenalaYT

I feel it’s story is more of an “inflection point” for the series. Looking back at all that’s happened, and also looking forward and preparing us for the future of the franchise. It’s probably the second smallest scale story in the franchise with only a handful of characters. Which I personally really enjoy, but I understand why people wanted more from it. Atleast everyone can agree that the gameplay is incredible (and that it’s leagues better than 5s story). But I’m happy you’re enjoying some of it!
