Take a girl for a ride by Quirkilicious Take a girl for a ride by Quirkilicious
"I can give you over forty thousand reasons why I know that sun isn't real. I know it because the emitter's Rayleigh effect is disproportionate to it's suggested size. I know because it's stellar cycle is more symmetrical than that of an actual star. But for all that, I'll never know if it looks real... if it feels real... before this is all over, promise me you'll find out which one of us is the machine." - Cortana

Truly the best thing about H4, something the first trilogy only subtly brushed upon, was the character/relationship driven story between Cortana and John.

Cortana's face looks a little like Elizabeth from Bioshock in my opinion. Not a bad thing, this is great work. :)

This is just gorgeous looking. Cortana looks super sexy, the angle and the pose are also really sugestive, and combined with the light around her looks pretty dynamic and alive. Amazing work.

This reminds me that I need to get around to catching up on the Halo series sometime.

Must find the time somehow.

Cortana from H4 drawn anime style?

Great idea and lovely execution.
Looks pretty awesome.
Who doesn´t dig cool tech chicks anyway? :3

The only thing that is missing, in my opinion, is a pair of shoes.
But then again you propaply drew her like that because that is
how she appears in the game.

This is gorgeous, and that quote sums up the game nicely. It was full of feels. I may have cried at the end. I really hope 343 do something amazing with the next two games. The relationship between them was always snarky, but Cortana has been presented as more human than Chief in the past, and I think her comment on that is really evocative... This picture is amazing, sorry I got sidetracked. :ashamed:

My fave FPS series. I always thought that they short changed Cortana's character in the original trilogy especially her relationship with the Chief. Glad it rectified in the new Halo. Now how do I get a copy in my country? Hmmmm...

Honestly, what you like about halo 4 is what I hate the most. I miss subtly. Not being slapped by a 2x4 in the face with it.
