Holy shit I love this. The perfect amount of perspective to make it not flat but not jarring, 10/10

Great very nice pose and overall being brings back some childhood memories about nice covers of metroid and probotector, very ’90 felt.

Awesome job capturing the Master Chief's ground-pound scene from the official Halo 5 Launch Trailer from a different angle.  The Master Chief's size and position in the scene emphasizes his power as a warrior and a leader.  In addition, his position and size in the scene emphasizes how he overwhelmed the first Covenant fireteam he and Blue Team snuck up on after arriving on Genesis.  Awesome job!

hey u have some really cool colours and style going on but there are a few issues with the anatomy on this one. The head is ducked too low so it looks like hes shrugging his shoulders up which is off-putting, his left arm looks like its cocked back a bit weird and the hand seems to be turning which is a bit unnatural, i feel like leaving his hand in a sideways position would work. Finally compositionally the rocks around his right hand should overlap to add to the feeling that his hand is puncturing the ground, the rocks could also fly through the foreground and that would make it seem more dynamic and add more depth to the piece. Furthermore the background could add with a touch bit more atmospheric perspective to push it back and perhaps curve it a bit more around him to suit how the rest of the piece seems to curve around him.
Ps I also think turning his head down so that it looks like hes looking foward with his eyes seems cool imo too
heres an image with some of the changes that I just explained
