A Chief's gotta hang his helmet somewhere!



Art is Back: Part 2 | mrsmiley { February 21, 2006 }

Now I know you're probably thinking, "Wait a minute, I don't remember part 1!" Well, that's probably because it happened more than a few months ago. After a brief break, I think I'm ready to get things running again here at HBN! Enjoy over 40 featured art pieces from September through December of 2005! (More recent update coming soon!)


Etoli never ceases to amaze us with her top-notch artwork, in many different styles! I smell an artist feature coming... ;) If it seems like a left some works out, or if some of you think you should have been featured... sorry. There was so much art to sift through, I'm sure some things got left out! Big thanks to admins Polarbear and Skipper for the help!

7 | lord of the doubt says:

Wow, my first art feature. And I got early in the comments. I really didn't figure it would be that one though, it was, a lot of sprite based MSP fun. The scarab was hell though, I had to resize it completely at one point, and then depixelate it. Well, once again, congrats to the highlights of 4 months in the Art section.

60 | Jayk_Carson says:

WOOT 60th POST!!!!

Haven't been here in a while... anyways, That picture of the two elite's called "Siblings" by etoli is freaking tight.

Some artwork I've seen here is dissappointing. There are 100X better pictures posted everyday and some of them I did not see.

Some pictures I saw were not even worth mentioning. Is halobabies running out of good artists?

Gruntsbanes pic of cortana is awesome. The "Coming out of the shadows" look it awesome and the gentle soft texture makes it 10 times better. She does look sort of chubby though.

61 | corpralperez says:

next time do the covies v.s marines v.s therebels

62 | corpralperez says:

make halo1 and 2 marines and make more grunts

63 | corpralperez says:

make halo1 and 2 marines and make more grunts

64 | Elite of Destiny says:

Nice artwork, Please draw more.

65 | paul says:

that is an awsome drawing.

66 | Arbiter 5000 says:

It won't work. >:(
