Grunt Minor by Tekka-Croe Grunt Minor by Tekka-Croe
Another Halo work. Just like my Elite, I've sort of blended together my favorite elements of previous official designs, and tossed in a dash of my own style for good measure.

Inked and colored with Copic pens and markers, respectively.

Halo (c) Microsoft, 343i

343 should have used THIS design for the Unggoy in Halo 4.

I actually have to disagree, if you're talking about the armor. The "Covenant" that you fight in Halo 4 aren't so much the Covenant and are more just a faction of fanatical dissidents. They don't have quite military grade armor.

Though, if you mean the way that the body of the Grunt itself turned out, then yeah. I would've preferred it to design that made it into the game. The Grunts in Halo 4 look like their arms and legs are made of pinecones.

I meant the grunt's body. I also don't like how the Grunts in Halo 4 don't have respirators.

They do have respirators, it's just not a full-on mouth mask like the traditional Grunt. The H4 Grunt helmets have a tube along one side that seems to feed to their nose.

Oh. But wouldn't they need a -full- respirator? Seems like they would die already without actually entirely breathing methane, rather than oxygen AND methane.

not exactly, as long as there is enough methane in the air for them to breath they are fine, in halo cole protocoll it is explained, as there is a grunt colony where there is a methane river, and the fog from that is enough for them to breathe, and the atmosphere itself is oxygen.

this is what they should look like in halo 4. but stoopid 343 had to totally redesign the entire freakin thing and made them look like little rock trolls. >_<
this is an amazing concept i like how you rounded it out but kept a faithful design.

And yet, the elites most likely were messing with grunt breeding to make them look like that. That's how I feel about the grunts in H4.
