Allvater Takr Jarl 'Wudkar by Dragunalb Allvater Takr Jarl 'Wudkar by Dragunalb
Just out of boredom I scrabbled around with Photoshop whilst working on the concept art of this character we use in a comic project of Thilo and me that plays ten years after Halo 3.
Takr Jarl 'Wurkar is the most badass Elite in space, being Allvater and so the lone emperor of Sanghelios and commander of enormous fleets, leading them into battle against the regrouping remains of the Covenant. Somehow I feel sorry for the Jiralhanae...

He lacks the blue tatoos on his face that cover his entire body, but I'm too tired now to draw them right now, so maybe I'll update this or maybe not, well see.

>> MORE OF MY HALO FANART HERE <<

Halo belongs to Microsoft.
Takr Jarl 'Wudkar belongs to Thilo.
The design of the armor belongs to me.

Damn that helmet looks badass, but it's huge. I wonder if the guy's neck is stiff from wearing it all day.

The fabric was well executed and the armor looks good. But I think the pose is a bit... awkward. But overall, nice work.

You've done DA a great service for posting this.

Yeah, the helmet is quite big, but compared to those councilor helmets from Halo2, this one's tiny ^^

It's one of my first works with photoshop I made quite a while ago, so yeah there are many flaws in it ^^;

Bigger question is how the heck where they even able to kick brute asses so hard with their swords and stuff whilst wearing those massive things?! Still I think those helmets look really awesome.

True, but once seen they really annoy me each time I see the drawing...

Wow, what gorgeous colours! :)

I'd feel sorry for the Jiralhanae too, knowing they'd have to face this mighty warrior and his fleets! And please, DO show us his tattoos sometime!

Oh, and what is the significance of the title Allvater? My best guess is that vater means father ... but that doesn't really make much sense, does it? :)

Thank you for the fave and the nice compliment :)

Oh yes, the Brutes get one hell of a fight with him, dual swords and armshields FTW!
I've to tralk with :icconSasumee: about the tatoos first. We said we want something celtik or germanic, but aren't sure about the design at all, cause the face hasn't so much space for big tatoos.

You're right, Vater means father and Allvater means "father of all", meaning that as highest leader and strongest known warrior of his race, he sees himself as the best of the sangheilian blood, Father of all Sangheili, and all Sangheili are his children. It's an old nordic name most Germanic tribes and Vikings used for their greatest leaders or kings. Germanic and Viking Sangheili XD

Skyward-Dreamer Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2010
Most welcome. :)

Lol, I bet! :D

I see, no I guess you're right about the face. Maybe the tatoos cover his entire head then and only a small part is visible on the face? Anyway, I'm really interested in seeing what you come up with. :)

Ooooh, niiiice! :D That's funny in a way, you might consider the Sangheili, whilst under Covenant influence, to be badass raiding Vikings out to plunder and destroy everyone! :D

We want the tatoos to cover the entire body, but not completely. There are still spaces free. Um, think of it like some sort of warpaint made tatoo. I thing it will become good. We just need some good ideas. And a naked Elitemodel to test the tatoos on it XD

Why not? Vikings weren't that bad like eachone believes. On the contrary, they where very cultured, looked for aestetics and and really cared for hygiene. They bathed nearly each weak (what was much for their time) and brushed each day their hair. They where the only warriors I know who allways had a hairbrush with them if they where gone on a raid ^^ They where just called barbarians cause for long thime they wherent Christians and eachone feared them for their raids. They wheren't really bad just because they often started raids, they just liked their warrior culture, much like Elites who really like to fight and inforce their might and belief.
I see many parallels between Vikings and Elites. The entire battle between the nordic gods and the giants is very similar to the San 'Shyuum-Sangheili war.

A warpaint tattoo sounds excellent. I was imagining something like Maori face tattoos, those might look gorgeous on any Sangheili, don't you think? :)

Lol! Well, if you make a successful attempt with a nudie, PLEASE upload him here won't you? ;)

No, I know Vikings weren't all bad but in this case I was thinking more of brutally efficient warriors.

I wouldn't be surprised if there actually is a sort of canon similarity between Nordic Gods/Mythology and the Sangheili-San 'Shyuum war, after all, Bungie has drawn lots from the Bible and indeed some from Nordic mythology with the Fenris warheads and Mjölner suits. So that comparison may be less than a step away actually. :)

Maori may be a bit too much I think. More Celtic or something similar the Picts had, that doesn't covers too much of the face. But honestly, I'm not the big Viking genious in the group, that's my friend there. He'll say what fits the best and I'll draw something similar to it but with a futuristic alientouch of course.

Is nudity even allowed here? =p

Jep, brutally efficient warrior is the right description for both, Vikings and Sangheili, there you're absolutely right.

Is pretty much is the same, just with changed Names of the two camps, and instead of magic thetre's superior tecnology and what causes the fight isn't gold but the treasures and wisdom of the Forerunners. Especially Staten seems to use many names of the nordic mythology. At least First Contact was full of it and each thing on Harvest was named after someting. Even the Jutuns und Sif.
I wonder why the spartan program had that too. Mjölnir = Hammer of Thor, Gungnir = Spear of Odin etc.

I meant the style and patterns more than the need to cover his entire face and body. :)

Sounds great though, I'm sure you'll come up with just the right thing in the end. :)

Of course, just add a warning for nudity, he he. ;)

Well, I've always wondered why Halo is such a 'religious' phenomenon at all. :) Why are there so many reference to the Bible and Nordic mythology, why not come up with new, nevery before seen or heard names or phrases. I mean, the Covenant don't really seem to have that equivalent to all the UNSC such, do they?
