Ever have one of those weeks? You know the kind I mean. Where you can't dig up some motivation and you're desperate for some kind of pick-me-up? Because I've totally been there; done that. Sam's life pro-tips for getting out of that funk: 

Grabbing a hot cappuccino for breakfast and digging into all the artwork and creations that the Halo community continues to pour heart and soul into! Hopefully, you're not riding the struggle bus this week but if you are, let your fellow community members lift you up and put a smile on your face!

CRÈME DE LA CRÈME

The latest edition of Inside Infinite was pretty hype, especially if you like Sandbox info, so it feels only fitting to follow that up with @thatrookieovthr's Halo Infinite Master Chief. Simple but looking good! 

Snack Break

We've seen guitars, pianos, harps...kazoos. But never a ukelele. Until today! If you've been dying to learn how to play the Halo theme on said smol instrument, thanks to Ukemaster666, you too can be a pro in no time! 

Snicker's Doodles

Most of you know the drill by now. If, on the off chance, you are new, welcome! This is the main art section. Settle in and enjoy!

Up next, let's check out some videos from around the community!

We've all seen @Mooreshots1's toy photography by now, right? (If not, go check it out and then come back, the video will wait!) Now that we're all here, we can watch this sweet video of how he brings some of his shots to life. From "weathering" his toys to the backdrop, it's a pretty neat process and I like seeing the work that goes into staging and make it look good! If you're wanting some inspiration or to get started, definitely give it a watch!

I was gonna be really excited and tell you that @NickBrickBuilds was back with a new video but honestly, I'm just very late on this. I don't know how I missed it but this LEGO Energy Sword is sweet and I want one. Nick says it's pretty awkward but look at it! It's so cool looking! 

@Bahaiel says, "Fireteam sigmoid is sent to recon a station essential to the war." So that's what you're seeing in this teaser! I look forward to the full thing!

Every now and then we see a quick stop motion animation but this time, @motiondomain is bringing us a whole montage! They held a contest over the holidays and here are the winners out of the 122 entries! I absolutely love seeing community events like this and can't wait to see more!

Hot off the heels of the latest Mass Effect remaster news, @Kidskull51 brings you the Halo Legendary Edition trailer! If you liked the Mass Effect trailer and wanted to see the Halo version, I don't think you'll find much better. This is very well done and I enjoyed it from start to finish!

If machinima is your jam, don't miss out on Last Second Film's latest. This is all filmed in Halo 5. Oh and the entire set/environment is Halo 5's forge. Yes, really. Check out Chapter 1 – The Lost Pilot now!

Petits Fours

There's always a little room for second dessert. Just a small snack, right?

Doodle's Snickers

I've never played a Resident Evil game in my life but it's been virtually impossible to miss the "Tall Lady" memes this past week. Both @Xbox and @XboxUK had a couple good ones and then I discovered this one by @jimmy_yes. So good!

Fin

Thank you all for sticking with me until the end! Hopefully you found something to put a smile on your face. If your artwork has been featured in this Spotlight blog, be sure to fill out the latest submission form so we can properly reward you with your Fire Unicorn rewards. In the meantime, happy almost Friday everyone!

Ciao xx

I was thinking about these blogs the other day and realized that this blog is my 42nd one since I started at 343. That's a whole heck of a lot of artwork that I've had the opportunity to share with the greater community and the reality is, that's the best present I could have asked the community for so thank you! We're closing out 2020 with a bang so let's get to it!
