Sangheili Dancers by Etoli Sangheili Dancers by Etoli
:3 Posting this here for now until I get a chance to color it. I actually drew this weeks ago to keep myself entertained while I was rendering out that damned special effects final in Maya. . . I had this scene keep playing out in my head.

I'hro and Eto must perform a traditional coming of age dance upon completion of their Bangala training, to the pride of their families. . . and the enjoyment of the young warriors who have also come to honor the event. XD *snicker*

I'll eventually write about this in my fiction-in-progress. . .

Love it! :love: As always you portray the Sangheili as beautiful graceful creatures, I adore the sense movement and how you've made them all sleek and slinky and balanced. And, this may seem odd...but I also really like how you do your Elite's toes... :D Bowing to the talent here. :worship:

...and reading comments above, yes Etoli and Atomic! Need more fiction! I'm suffering withdrawal here.... :D *wonders if Damatee is going to get around to writing something* *pokes* :D

Can't wait until more of your story comes out. The detail on the traditional dress is really nice. Sad that real cultural dancing will put to shame the "dancing" I figured out how to do in Halo 2 multiplayer... ;_;

Dancing? Eh? Multiplayer? What kind of dancing is this you speak of . . . I hope it does not involve a corpse. O___O

Raygor Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2007
No it doesn't. I'm not sure if you've ever watched the "Tribute to Elites" video, but there is apparently a melee motion glitch where if you press "X" and "B" (or whatever your melee button equivalent is) at the same time you can whip out melees that do no damage at a really high speed. Over time, I've combined the basic "thrash about with a weapon" into refined dance moves using the Shotgun, Sniper, Plasma Pistol, Plasma Rifle, and I think the Needler, but that might be the same as Plasma Rifle... but yeah, I made up crappy dance moves. No corpses involved. (I loathe people who do that...)

That reminds me of the time me and a friend had way too much spare time and randomly set up a couple of Elites in Multiplayer to strut to the opening of Stayin' Alive.
Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a womans man: no time to talk.

I should now be shot. Repeatedly. xP

And awesome art as always, I'm looking forward to seeing it coloured.
Halo really wouldn't be the same to me without all those wonderful creations and interpretations that have spawned from peoples imaginations.

Ooooh, speaking of which, were you still planning on doing a drawing of that? I've always been curious what you had in mind for the D'amor and how they would look.
