Done in 4 hours in Corel Painter using the "Artist's Oil" tool, almost exclusively.
I've been playing around with that tool in my spare time and think I might have finally gotten the hang of it. This turned out much better than my last Master Chief fanart, and I have to say, I am rather pleased with this one. It seems to have the look I've been trying for YEARS to accomplish. Well, guys, I think I might have just found my new style~
