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.
In this fanart feature, we’re showing off digital artwork by Tubbies of Plum. Tubbies of Plum creates artwork digitally via Photoshop, and has a very unique style to their artwork.
We asked Tubbies of Plum what their creative process was when creating Halo themed artwork, and this is what they said:
“For my creative process, everyone is drawn in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos tablet. I begin with the same base template to keep proportions consistent between Tubbies. Usually, each Tubby is based on a source image (Omega Team matches their concept art or Chief being from the Halo 3 cover) though original poses are used sometimes.–Tubbies of Plum
The biggest part is simplifying everything and modifying pieces to fit the Tubbies body proportions. It is a delicate balance to not over simplify, but also not going nuts on detail. Honestly, for how simple they may appear, it amazes me how much they have changed since the first Tubby was posted on Instagram.“
A huge thanks to Tubbies of Plum for sharing that information with us. It’s always awesome to learn how different artists create their artwork. Of course, this wouldn’t be a fanart feature without the actual artwork, so please enjoy some examples of Tubbies of Plum’s art below.
