Brute Stalker

To be honest, I haven't played much of the Halo series (or any first person shooter). I get pretty motion sick watching the screen bob and bounce around, not to mention the anxiety that comes from knowing that someone is waiting around that next corner, ready to murder me and then hump my corpse. Thankfully, that doesn't stop me from enjoying the visual aspects of the game. I loved the trailers they made, and the cgi videos were top notch. I just can't handle, you know, playing.

According to Halopedia (which I just learned existed):
Stalkers are covered in gray armor and possess integrated circuitry for Active Camouflage in their Power Armour. They often use Radar Jammers to confuse their prey and are the main users of Incendiary Grenades. It is unknown how Brutes are promoted to this rank (possibly the number of casualties they inflict), but they are commonly seen acting as spies and bodyguards for Brute Chieftains. The Stalkers replaced the Special Operations Elites of Halo 2 after the Elites became Separatists from the Covenant.

Setup was pretty simple, as was processing in Photoshop. All I had to do was a little color correction and add the laser eye thing. I wanted to get his guns in the shot because they're full of cool details, but it just didn't work out. Maybe the next one will have the guns? I hope so.

So, people who play Halo, how did I do? Does he look like he's in the game?
