Immolation of Reach by Julian-Faylona Immolation of Reach by Julian-Faylona
a 2.5 hour speedpaint...

This is a scene where Covenant battle cruisers descend upon Reach and began glassing its surface. At the far right you see 2 spartans staring in horror and shock at the hellish vista that lay before their eyes; the Covenants are bombarding one of Reach's largest cities with their Energy Projectors causing buildings and landmass to actually melt into molten lava and is seen flowing into infernal streams along the roadways of the city.

This is a request from :iconhyperactive-nutcase: based on a pencil drawing he made which he asked me to fully render. you can view it here:

I really enjoyed working on this one. it's been a while since I made any Halo works.

This is extremely well done, very dark, beautiful, and powerful. You can actually feel the despair of those Spartans as they look on helplessly as the flames consume their world...

This scene really made me feel for the characters in the game. Everyone thinks they'll win, but then when this started to happen pretty much everyone knew that it was the end for Reach.

Awesome job you two!
