Well, we’re halfway through with today’s posting of my Halo minimalist art series. It’s day 5. Did you guess who the character would be?
As I’m sure you could tell from those large spiky things, it is of course an imposing HUNTER!
I had to go a little bit more with color here, since the hunter has that fuel rod cannon array on it’s left “arm”. So this one has 7 colors. The lightest blue I could have maybe exchanged for the darker blue, but it just didn’t look right when I tried it. I felt the added highlighting helped, so I kept it in.
Here’s the preview of the day 6 character. Can you guess what it is?
Are you liking this series so far? What has been your favorite? Any guesses as to who/what may be in the rest of the series?
A bigger version of this and all of the other minimalist pieces will be available after they’ve all been shown. Stay tuned for more details on that.
I recreated these in Adobe Illustrator using some fun techniques and refining some of the shapes. I tried to use as few colors as possible yet show enough detail so that each character was instantly recognizable.
