Sword in the Stone by TDSpiral Sword in the Stone by TDSpiral
"This Forerunner installation is in suspension until one worthy Reclaimer can pull this artifact from its resting place"

Yeah, it's a reference to the King Arthur thing. I know, not the most creative. But hey, I'm trying. Plus, I'd rather let the viewer's imagination do most of the work. Showing, not telling.

I'm a big fan of Sparth's Halo artwork. Well, actually, just his artwork in general. So I kinda wanted to try my hand at something similar to his style because I'm still searching and discovering things that I like about many artists.

-UPDATED-

Added a hole in the ground and some other minor things, like more snow and clouds.

Great work once again! The reference to Arthur is not shallow at all, in fact I find it to be really creative; Bungie has made multiple historical references in their games so I don't see why you can't do the same in your work.

Amazing and continue to keep up your great work!

Well, usually they make biblical references. Such as how The Ark was designed to withstand the Flood (I always thought that was really creative- like there's no way they couldn't have had that planned from the beginning).

So, the King Arthur reference is a bit out of place, but it was way more creative than calling it "Forerunner Environment". I was actually having a dream about this drawing last night. It's called a Sword installation (as contrasted to a Shield World), and it's basically a giant laser beam that kill things with accuracy. Unlike the Halo installations, which are largely imprecise.
