Friendly neighborhood self-confessed laconophilia, whose armor suits him, but it can not hide that mark (Nothing ever will), who was prepared the very moment that he let his arrow fly, that’ll slay anything that's evil (that's his deal), who will never die (just go Missing In Action), who's desperate to regain his honor, who has the innate ability to be overlooked and ignored, who hides a bitter heart under a veneer of lovable idiot, and who knows deep down that Who I am is not who I want to be...

Halo Graphics Evolution : Anniversary vs. Original

Apparently graphics have gotten slightly better over the last decade !



SGT Johnson tho……..

The important thing to note is that Johnson and the Arbiter are not going to actually look that good in game, in engine.  If you read down into the press releases you will see that:

"Renowned CG cutscene studio Blur is handling the do-over on all of the Halo 2 cutscenes."

So the cut scenes will be rendered separately from the actual game play.  Just compare that shot of Johnson with the shot of the Chief  running down the hallway for example.  There is a great disparity in the level of detail in both shots

Caboose. Why don't you smile in your pictures?


I am smiling…but…I guess you can not see it.  Because of my helmet.  I’ll show you!


Actually kind of happy I got this ask, becuase do you know how long I’ve wanted to do the SPARTAN II “smile” gesture in armor?  Way back when we were first trying to work on armor, back right before Halo 2 came out, when I was still in High School, I really wanted to do a set of Mark V MJOLNIR armor with some else who had read the books and would get it when I did that.  Years later I almost even did a Chief and Kelly-087 with someone who had read the books, but, that plan didn’t work out, and that armor eventually became the first version of Caboose.

Throw Back Thursday: Caboose/Halo MJOLNIR Mark V Armor.
2007: first time using Pepakura and Fiberglass.  Helmet not braced when Fiberglass, severly warped.  Worn only twice.

2008: Only shoulder armor kept, everything else remade with Pepakura and fiberglass. 

2012: Vacuum formed plastic armor.  Molds a combination of Version 2 fiberglass pieces and sculpted foam bucks.   Same helmet from Version 2 with new Bubbled Visor.
