Return to Sangheilos by Ghostwalker2061 Return to Sangheilos by Ghostwalker2061
Well, I've been wanting to do something special for this New Years, you know, break out the new year with a bang. How's that for a bang?

Dedicated to my Halo buddies, this image depicts Telek's return to his homeworld at the middle of Halo 3 Times as Different. He goes home to round up some willing ships to come and help Earth and their...Covenant problem since now the Sangheilis are allied with the humans. Yay. I knew they were too cool stay the bad guy for long.

The Sangheili homworld is called Sangheilos. It was depicted as being a planet with two moons, but very Earth-like. I tried my best to recreate it from the descriptions.

In the lower portion is Telek's brand-new ship called the Shadow of Darkness, the grandchild of the Shade of Darkness. Like the Shade, the Shadow can cloak, but she's bigger and packs a meaner punch. The Shade was destroyed during the first part of Halo 3 Times as Different. Sorry for the spoiler guys.

Enjoy.

This was like...3 days of painting.

Now that is realistic! You even added the reddish atmosphere! You did know that sangheilios appears red from orbit, didn't you? Even if you didn't realistic lookin anyway, bet that three days really staged on didn't they.

He still spelled it wrong. That's the official name. It's been that way for several years.

Great painting, you should treat your text with the same level of attention. Your squashed serif font just isn't doing any justice to the rest.

This was a 4 year old paining that I did. I don't do that sort of thing anymore if you look at my more recent stuff.

I hope that there's another Halo, and that takes place on Sangheilos.

I'm glad you liked it. But that's not Sanghelios. It's the Citadel from the level the Covenant on Halo 3.

I'm not dead, but some of my physics test make me want to be. I discovered a digital arts program in my university, and although its miles away from what I thought it would be, its still motivating me to get my art act back together.

Anyway, I've been lurking, your stuff is looking good!

I'd love to paint the inside of the planet, if it looks oh-so-exhiliratingly-different directly in the planet! :+favlove:

It's my depiction of our favorite aliens' homeworld. I've never seen the Halo Beastary so, I don't know how they got the planet to look like. I just read it had two moons and four suns. Though doing a binary system is a bit difficult. But the moons I can pull off. Hope I got it close.

Thanks for sharing the details. Once I illustrate my fanfictions, they will have some of those concepts. :-)
