HALO sketches

Hey all!

It was finally announced that Dark Horse would be doing a HALO comic. I have a lot of love for Dark Horse, and think the property is in great hands there!

Months ago I was in talks with Dark Horse to draw the comic. I already had several projects on my plate, from both publishers in the US and France, so the timing was really bad for me. It didn't work out for several reasons, but it was fun to take a shot at the characters.

I have to admit, I've never played the game. So it took a lot of sketching to get familiar with the HALO characters. Here were some of the final designs I did.






Be sure to look for the HALO comics coming soon from Dark Horse!


Best,
Mike

Dang. I would have loved to see that. Those drawings are great representation of the game's characters.

Happy bug sad.

Thanks, man. Yeah, it would have been fun to do. But there was just no way, not with all the stuff on my plate + teaching.

Thanks again!
