The year is quickly coming to a close which means, hopefully, we can start trending upwards. I don't know about you all but I am definitely feeling challenged by 2020 and I'm ready for some less hardcore days/months. If you need a temporary escape, allow me to help with a mini gallery of community artworks. 

CRÈME DE LA CRÈME

Over the almost two years of doing these blogs, and my countless years in the community as a whole, I've seen a lot of different takes on Master Chief but never quite like this. Using some of Chief's own words, @DarthPhrox brought him to life. Do you see your favorite quote in here?

Snack Break

To celebrate the launch of the Xbox Series S|X consoles, Ben Rowlands picked up his one man band and put together a rockin' take on the Halo theme. This is so good!

Snicker's Doodles

With Halo 4 joining MCC on PC next week, I'm not surprised to see a decent chunk of Halo 4 love this week. That's certainly not all that we've got on deck, however.

The Chief Among Us

Yes, while Master Chief is our main guy, apparently he has some pretty sus moments. Don't believe me? See for yourself. (I could have called this section the /u/Taco144 section but when there's more than one person killing it, you don't wanna take chances. *eyes emergency meeting button*)

Sweet Rolls

Cozy up on the couch/chair/surface of choice, turn down the lights, fire up the cameras, and watch the action!

If you are into sick snipes and some solid MCC gameplay, you'll really dig this @EEli_X and @JeffSheney montage by @ZentzProdEdits. So sit back, don't panic, and enjoy, "PANIC." Oh and some of those plasma tosses were incredible. 

If you've ever looked at Halo maps and seen the top-down view of them and wondered, "Hey, how do *I* make one of those?" this next video is for you. Experienced Halo forger @ArturBloodshot made a video outling the process so now you can make your own too! As someone who is not a designer, I thought seeing the process was really neat. He says it's, "really easy" so I'll have to take his word for it because this is wizardry to me!

I don't even know how to explain how good @BaconMediaYT is. What's that? He just casually remade "The Maw" cutscene and it looks incredible? Yeah. You gotta see this one for yourself to appreciate the skill and work on display!

Petits Fours

As per tradition, a round up to send you on your way!

Doodle's Snickers

This pixel art by @BryanHeemskerk is awesome. That is all.

Fin

And with that, I bid you so long, farewell, auf wiedersehn, adieu! Well, until next time, at least. If you're looking fot this week's form to claim your Fire Unicorn rewards, look no further! It's right here. Be sure to fill it out so I can give things out next week. If you missed the form during the week you were featured, you can fill this one out too so long you provide the information requested. 

Ciao! xx

I'm really, really excited for October. Last year I got a really good taste of what the Halo community does with #Inktober and I cannot wait for this year's results! You better not disappoint me! There's not much from there in *this week's* edition but the month is young. There still is plenty of time. If I can get enough Halo themed Inktober art, maybe I'll do an #Inktober special and only show art from that. We'll see, but for now, let's check out the art!

It feels like it's been forever since I've put together a Community Spotlight for you all but also it feels like yesterday. (Real talk – quarantine time is the weirdest.) I've lost all sense of time, but one thing that remains indisputable is that it's Thursday – so here we are with a fresh Spotlight! There's a lot so strap in and bring extra snacks. I'll take some popcorn if you're sharing.

People have been asking when the next Community Spotlight is coming and I'm pleased to say that today is the day! Come catch the latest in Halo fan art, some incredible 3D printing, sweet screenshots, and more. Did I mention that we reached 1,000,000 followers on our official Halo Instagram account too? We can't thank you enough but we can try with another Halo Spotlight blog!
