Brute Minor by ubald007 Brute Minor by ubald007
Brute Minor: Hi everyone:) Ok so Ive been working on a few other characters, I really got inspired when I watched the ODST live trailer:) the brutes are rarely seen (Meaning image research wise) but they did such an awesome job on the trailer I had to start doing images of these guys. So with some help from some friends, I was able to start!. This is a Brute Minor the weakest of the brutes, I will be doing other renders of the diff types so I think the next is the Brute Major. Rigged posed and rendered in 3d Studio Max// Post-work digital painting color ajust CS2. I hope you all like. CHEERs.

Minors don't have shoulderpads or kneeguards; so that would be armor of an ultra or a major.
Again, awesome work though. Lovely detail.

The Brute Minors in Halo Reach look so different than the ones in Halo 3.

This is just epic. The brute looks amazing, but it's the odst's pose and armour that really does it for me. This should be promotional art. I hope someone at bungie sees it.

incredible work. for a minor he's crazy-ass intimidating. idk how you'll make them increasingly vicious as the ranks go: minor, major, captain, and captains..but there are 3 variations of captains and then two chieftans. one is the gold armor the other is the black & red. ha sorry i have my halo dictionary.

nottt a problem! i'm a huge halo fanatic hxc. like got the dvd the games the dictionary the novels i've read'em all & yeah..want to buy this sweet-ass bust that's like..$150..but um no if you have any questions about any of the species or characters or ships or weapons on any background info or detail fuck just go ahead and ask. the stalker is actually a specialist of the brute ranks. as well as is the brute jump pack and brute bodyguard..and then the brute chieftan is black & red armor..but the highest chieftan of the two is the gold-bronze armor..oh! and then there's the brute honor guard..which you know took place of the elite honor guard..same armor style..'cept on a brute.

Sweet I have to research every character, its fun but a pain. Ok hears a question, what color is the brutes blood?. In Halo 2 Ive heard it was pinkish purple, Then in Halo 3 I heard it was dark almost black? then in legends it was green!? I have looked it up only to get a not so sure answer. Thanks for the help:)

so i was reading through contact harvest..has a lot to do with tartarus & the brutes..couldn't locate anything about the blood color itself even in the gruesome battle moments..played through halo 3 & odst a little and in both their blood comes out as a dark purple...if i can locate any further evidence as to their blood color i'll be sure to let you know. any other questions?

Thanks man! dark purple it is then. I was hoping it was, becuse I know the Elites blood is light purple.
I decided to do the Major next, in fact Im just resizing it right now:) let me know what you think.
should be up in a few mins..CHEERs.

very cool! i will be checking shortly then. idk how much of halo you're into or played all the games but the elites have always been a superb species and i've been playing the reach beta for days now. they are so strong and powerful, their physical prowess standing over a spartan is intimidating for sure. but the brutes are such an interesting race. for future notice jus in case..jackal blood pretty sure purple as well..grunts are blue blooded and the lekgolo (hunters) are orange-blooded.

Sweet dude thanks a bunch!, Info is so important when rendering such great characters. Pus I like to stay as close to the characters as possable;) Yeah I really like the Elites aswell I love the ones in Halo wars. I dont play much but have a few friends that do, I dig the whole halo story-line. So reach is a good play:) I can wait to do some renders with reach stuff, Bungie has been doing some Great work.
let me know when you have a chance, thanks for the peek..

CHEERs.

Look's good, I've been reading the Halo Evolutions novel and there's a pretty scary story about brutes in there if your aware of it.

I also appreciate the retouching before you show it off brings a lot more life to it.

Btw, would you consider doing some kind of ship render art? I might be hard to make ships in space look interesting i just thought it would be cool

Thanks:) yeah re-touching is a must, I only know what I can get on google;) Being Im really trying to get the characters rigged and ready, vehicles are coming a bit slower. I will try to put more vehicles in my renders:) CHEERs..

Very good stuff. I'm very impressed with the detail in the brute minor's armor, as well as the anatomy.

Looks like another flawless work of art!
