HaloFanForLife’s Minimalist Halo Characters: #9 Palmer

It’s day 9 of my Halo minimalist art project, which means we’re 3/4 of the way through the series. We’re moving on to our second female in the series, or first if you count Cortana as an A.I. only and not truly a female…(and if you do only count her as an A.I., you’re dead to me! LOL J/K)

It’s Sarah Palmer, everyone’s favorite Spartan IV Commander!

Palmer was made with only 6 colors. While I could have added another color to help flesh out the face more, I actually prefer it this way. It’s more “Warhol” like in this respect. The armor being all greys and black are detailed enough and with the crimson appliqués added it pops nicely.

So here is day 10’s preview. Does this one have you guessing? I hope so. It’s profile isn’t quite as recognizable as most of the other ones have been.

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.
