Hey there everyone, welcome to Halo Spotlight. The place where Halo community creations are put front and centre. In fanart features, we highlight artists and their creations.
This fanart feature will be a little different than the usual piece. Rather than featuring 4 different art pieces, we’ll be featuring a single project that has evolved over time.
We spoke with AnOddFox to get an insight on the artwork, and this is what they had to say.
The MJOLNIR TYPE/F is a reconnaissance type armour set used for infiltration missions and an information gathering. The helm is a modified MJOLNIR IV/S Scout fit with noise amplifying modules to help hear if enemies are in coming or if enemies are in key areas, along with night vision to traverse through dark or dimly lit areas.
The helmet’s shape resembles a fox’s head to help blend the wearer into the environment with it’s slick design. The visor can be removed and replaced with a more reinforced visor. Along with the visor however they’ll sacrifice their night vision for better all round vision.
These modifications are used if the user is planning on going to more combat heavy areas or they feel they’re unnecessary (seen on the purple spartan).
The armour can be equipped with a fur collar if they’re going to colder environments. The shoulder plates are used to distort the figure of the user to help conceal them, however the user can take them off if they find it unnecessary. That should conclude the description of the armour.
We also asked AnOddFox if they had any plans on creating more animal themed armours. You can see the response below.
If you want to know if I plan on making more animal based armours, the answer is a maybe. I do have some concepts in my mind for the armour sets but that’s as far as they go.
Along with that I may or may not try and learn blender or any other modelling program to 3D model this armour set so that some buddies of mine or even fans of the set can use the armour if they want.
A huge thank you to AnOddFox for taking the time to share artwork and information. If you want to see more from AnOddFox, you can do so on their Twitter account.
You can let us know what you thought about the piece on our Twitter. Not had a chance to read any other features yet? Head over to the new spotlights section of the site for all the most recent Halo community content.
