Assignment in color theory to create a fake movie poster for a book/album/movie/game. I picked Halo Reach. We had to have our own work while mixing in imagery from the source material. I thought the cleaved mountain at the end was a particularly potent image, as was the scene with Noble 6 with Jorge's dogtags, so I mixed them together for this idea.
Tried going for the painty look while borrowing some ideas from my sketchy digital pics I've done lately. The background and the ship look much worse without the Gaussian blur, glad it saved me on this one...
Had to stare at numerous references for hours for this, including videos, pics, trailers, and models....and I'm still meh on the accuracy.
Halo belongs to Bungie and Microsoft
