Ancient Shield by ONI-Defense Ancient Shield by ONI-Defense
After finishing Halo 4's campaign, I was inspired to complete a painting I had left unfinished for months depicting an Onyx-like shield world installation.

I listened to 117, a track from the Halo 4 OST while working on this piece. www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCrL76…

Credit for the Forerunner texture goes to ~dano555666.

Update: Thank you to everyone who faved this picture. :thanks:

It looks like a moon. But that's no moon... it's a Shield World.

These are not the Halo installations you are looking for.

But, it does look like a moon, doesn't it? At least one the illuminated side. On the darker side, a little secret is revealed.
