Request - Kaine Rano by Darbaras Request - Kaine Rano by Darbaras
A request for :iconkainerano:

He asked me almost a year ago to draw his character, however, I couldn't really come up with any good - and "original" - ideas for Elites. Sorry for taking so long.

I used my favourite cartoon elite style, though this time it's based on the Spec Ops armour from Halo Reach with some modifications. It was somewhat more complicated than the older versions of their armour, but figuring out how to draw it was part for the fun.

Also, instead of the plasma rifle, I depicted him with a "heavily cartoonised" needle rifle.


As usual, I drew the outlines in a vector software then coloured in Photoshop.

Thank you very much! This is my favourite way to depict elites; with the gloves, the boots, and showing things through my eyes in general. :D

Oh, I see... The suit covering his whole body, the helmet hiding his face, the air support tube, the long sleeved gloves and the colour scheme itself indeed gives him kind of a sinister look.
Good thing you always notice things like this ... Makes me value my own work! ^^

*SPOILERS*
Funny, but the request I'm working on right now has an Elite posing like a ninja in it. Looks like my subconscious is pretty much all about assassins right now! :D

Skyward-Dreamer Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012
Ha ha, yes, it's mostly the helmet though, although when I first laid eyes on that particular model, it reminded me too much of an ant's head. :D

Lol, what a coincidence! So that might very well have been a subconscious inspiration for this piece as well. :) Can't wait to see it.

To be honest, I hove no idea who this character actually is, all I know about him that he likes root beer ... But if you say so, I'm glad to hear it. ^^

Sounds like you were stuck in the same place as you were when you drew Stel. OH WELL! Atleast this looks good! First working from you we've seen in a little.
