Halo Suit - Fotus - Highpoly by polyphobia3d Halo Suit - Fotus - Highpoly by polyphobia3d
Here is my contribution to 343s Halo4, one of the spartan suits. Will upload the ingame version later on. My task was to model the high and lowpoly and also create the textures for this full suit.

To see it ingame you need to by the limited edition xbox bundle

hope you like it

For 3 years, I've been shocking by this armor. Still, it's the only thing what made this horrible game playable. I hope Halo 5 won't be such stupid as the last one, and I hope that Fotus will be there. And can you say who draw concept? Do you know designer of this armor?

Take that horn off of the top so it can look like Megatron.

I don't think you got the proportions for the head and neck right. It would be pretty hard to fit a head inside that helmet, especially since it's also covering his neck.

the design was made by 343i not me, my model matches the concept as close as possible and was approved for that.

Sure doesn't look like the in-game model. I'm playing Halo 4 right now.

it is the highpolyversion and 100% the one that landed in the game, you can see the ingame version on my portfolio here as well

What program did you make this in? Also how long did it take you? I'm currently majoring in Media Arts and Animation and just now learning 3D modeling. I should graduate in a year and a half and hopefully I can get hired by 343i. Of course my skills need to be good enough for them to hire me.
Any tips?

something around 3 weeks from concept to final ingame asset.

How many hours per day?

hard to tell, of course usually it is 8hrs. but with feedback loops a couple of days might be "wasted" during that time. there is quite bit of time that it takes flr the initial translation from 2d concept to 3d highpoly, project depenedent workflows and such.

Ok thanks. I might graduate in time to where I could work on Halo 6. Are you a freelance or work at 343i?

Did 343 ask for the big Horn on the helmat or did you just add it on? because it seems kinda unneeded if you know what I mean? since spartan's are high ranking marines not Power Rangers or something but other then that I love the armour.

as far as i know, this suit is forerunner, not typical spartan - however, the design is not mine ;)

I agree with you on that one. The horn seems very much out of place and quite frankly I think it ruins the suit.

Of course. But I don't mean to be critical of the modeling work here, because it's fantastic. Just that one bit of the design is obnoxious haha.

I don't understand the part with the horn. Well, it's the point of the whole armor you know. Unicorn-armor, that's what they wanted to make. Not some marine-spartan-armor. And with horn it looks 100% sci-fi masterpiece.

You were saying that the horn looks weird with this armor like it's not in the place. But it was meant to be there. That's what I wanted to say to you.

Awesome work, i had no idea something like this was on Deviantart. I think the halo 4 armour is the best in the series, its way more detailed and makes the others look like toys in my opinion. I also have this armour in game, thanks for modeling it :P
