Forerunner City by TDSpiral Forerunner City by TDSpiral
Yay! A city I'm happy with :D

Oh, and it's something Halo too. I haven't done anything Halo in a while. Keep in mind, this was a 2 hour speed-paint, if I have some time, I may go back and refine it a lot more.

Updated: Can you spot the Keyship? ;)

Wow, this is really nice! You should try to create a Covenant equivalent though... That'd be amazing!

it's hard to tell where it is when you don't know size of this structures and how it looks compared to them. I have found 2. One on orbital station and second in "ring" hangar at bottom left.
Good work.

Fantastic! This is right in the same vein as the artwork 343 has been using, particularly on Greg Bear's novels. Hopefully we'll see this kind of style in Halo 4.

Don't mean to be such a purist here but; isn't that a Forerunner dreadnought berthing ship? not a keyship? x3
the Keyships are the one's that look like the Eiffel tower xD

I do really love this pic, I'd love to have this printed on a big canvas across my wall.

No, there still is a Keyship in the back. Just the shape at least.

I've been trying to kind of nail that art style down for over a year now, and I think I've gotten pretty close with this one.
