The Librarian by StellarStateLogic The Librarian by StellarStateLogic
I see very clearly how much the Librarian has shaped humanity since the end of the first human-Forerunner war.

Whenever you look inward and see an ideal femaleÖ whether it be goddess, anima, mother, sister, or loverÖ

For a brief, barely sensible instant, you will see the face and feel the spirit of the Librarian.

ó 343 Guilty Spark; Halo - The Forenunner Saga: Primordium


Just because.

I have watched the entire footage of Halo 4 and I donít give a damn to 343ís Forerunner design. I donít give a damn to Ďcanoní Librarianís appearance, either. Iím sticking my Forerunner appearance headcanon based on to Greg Bearís interpretation of them resembling Tolkeinís elves and I draw what I want. *flips table*

Honestly I'm fine with either designs, canon or not.

At first it did bugged me a bit (your head cannon design) but I can't be a preachy fanboy about it. It's a beautiful image in it's own way.

(Even though it reminds me of Kos-mos from Xenosaga a bit but that could be just me XP)

Well, I personally am -emphatically- glad you went with this design. This seems to be more appropriate to what I feel like the Forerunners represent - something ancient, and a facade of fragility disguising great strength, and somewhat ideal.

The effects of the stars, and galaxies, and nebulae, the charm of space itself you have provided in the background are simply beautiful. In the smooth panels of muted color, and in her pale countenance, you encapsulated everything we've had impressed upon us about the Forerunners: a solemn people who held responsibility of literally cosmic proportions, and would be forever remembered for temperance, as a "Gold Standard above the Gold Standard" as it were.

Every detail of the Librarian is a study in stoic beauty, and controlled excellence, and a design that suggests a state without flaws, nor contradictions...Exactly how I'm sure many of us hoped the Forerunners would be portrayed in the games, and were disappointed in our own ways to see they weren't. Bravo. I say it again, and only once more, although it merits a thousand more praises:

I commend your sense of elegance in your art even tho i do not share the exact style in taste but i do know elegance when i see it and you keep nailing it. 

How much do you take in commissions about one character with a background?
