CTN 0452-9 by CharlotteChambers CTN 0452-9 by CharlotteChambers
EDIT: SCREECH. HOLY CRAP. This was featured on the official Halo Facebook page as well as on
the front page of Halo Waypoint for Fan Art Focus! [link] I'M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW.
And even though you'll probably never read this: THANK YOU, WAYPOINT. <3

Cortana - because she has to be one of my all-time favourite female characters, and because Halo is
and (likely) always will be my favourite video game series. And also, the last time I drew Halo fan art it was
a picture of Thel 'Vadam and I drew it when I was ten or eleven, so, needless to say, it sucked. Badly.

I think you can probably tell that I took some liberties with those patterns of hers. They were too difficult to
copy, so I simplified and modified some of them. (Don't hurt me) I was originally thinking of using the
Halo 3 patterns but decided to just stick with the Halo 4 design.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the way this came out. Although, I think I've found a new hate for drawing
human feet. I honestly think they're worse than hands, but that's probably because I don't draw them much
at all.

Oh man, this is truly amazing! :3 As a fellow Halo fan I'm very impressed with the details you have put into the lighting/colours and overall emotions of this piece. Cortana really looks amazing and I agree, she's one of my favourite characters as well. I loved how she was portrayed in the books as well as the game, but the Cortana level in Halo 3 was a right pain in the arse - I remember when I first played that level it took me a hell of a long time to get through that as it was very confusing and very hard at the time. Still, this is very impressive :D

Pretty sure that level was the most frustrating part of any video game I've ever
played, and I used to think nothing could top The Library! It must have taken me
three days of playing in a row to get through it when I was doing my Legendary
playthrough. I felt very accomplished when I finally did complete it, though. xD

Thank you very much! <3

I know I didn't get your permission, but the first one I made for your benefit, and the other because it inspired me...I just wanted to share these:
All I did to this one was add your name so no matter where the image is seen, people know who drew it:    pcimated.deviantart.com/art/Ha…
In this version I added my own dialogue to it which was inspired by the drawing itself and things Cortana has said before:    pcimated.deviantart.com/art/Ha…

I give full credit to CharlotteChambers for the drawing itself. I only added her name to the drawing and meaningful dialogue. I hope you like it and I hope she approves! (Otherwise, if she tells me to take them down, I will.)
