Dawns Sax by Dragunalb Dawns Sax by Dragunalb
Ok, a little sketch thing I made whilst riding the train and slapped some color on it.

So this is the knife my crazy bitch ODST Allegra Fischer aka Dawn uses all the time to kill Elites, her favorite game. Mostly inspired by the sax, a long knife Vikings used as tool but as weapon for close combat too. I gave it a more futuristic look and a saw on the upper edge. The metal is all dull and darkish (that girl likes black), along with the hilt that is covered with leather for a better grip. In the hilt are some other tools integrated all going the cool Swiss Officers Knife way I like, but I was too bored to draw them all, so here's the unclapped version.
The little thing graved in the blade is a flying eagle cause Dawn's actual name before the ONI stuff was Aivla which means eagle in Rumansh. Well she earned that nickname due to her sharp sight, but that was long before the Covenant when she used that knife only as a working tool and hunting knife, but now that life is almost forgotten.
And on the bottom you see the back of Dawn in her ODST gear, showing where she puts the knife when she isn't slicing some Elite's throat with it. Damn those ass-overemphasized armors in Halo Reach for female soldiers!

Um, left on the top you see some sketchy Dawn sneaking up on an unsuspecting Elite Minor to stab him and downside on the right... Well I simply had to put those two in it, featuring some specific episode of Arby 'n' The Chief. You just have to love them ;)

Halo belongs to Microsoft.
Saxdesign and Allegra "Dawn" Fischer belongs to me.

True but he continued to make videos for the series again though! I've only recently learned of it.

You know Jon picked the series back up recently, right?  Season 8 started sometime last year.

Really? I thought he stopped it entirely years ago, since people lost more and more interest in the series. Thanks a lot for telling me!

No, actually the reason he came back to it is because he didn't like the ending.  In one of his vlogs (where he explains away parts of the latest episodes) he explained that when he wrote the bittersweet ending he was in one of his depressed moods (I think he suffers from depression, at least thats what he claims).  Then he looked back at it and decided he wanted to bring it back.

On one hand I'm happy it's back.  Arby n the Chief is always nice.  On the other though, I thought the bittersweet ending was just so fitting for the series end, I kinda wish he had left it there.  Nonetheless, the newest season is pretty cool, as he kind of leans away from the comedy (it's still there, but in smaller doses) and focuses on a more psychoological drama/horror aspect.  You'll see what I mean when you start watching it.

I see. I thought he was just fed up with the series in general, since he seemed to get out of ideas too towards the end. The never season looks promising though. I only watched one episode yet but I quite like it!

The new season gets better and better as the tension grows.  There's one scene that scared the living crap out of me.

Would be a cool idea but by the looks of it, the UNSC science hasn't managed to copy Covenant weapons and relies on copying their shielding technology for mow.

Maybe in future, thought you think we already developed better laser and shields by time we fougth covenenat. But halo 4 i belive sheilding is better and starting to equip them to unsc ships. I know rail/gauss base weaponry one advantage unsc had against covenant

UNSC technology is already old compared to today's standards but I got to say that is makes a lot of it's charm to be that retro compared to Covenant or Forerunner technology.

I prefeed reach the bewt of them all. I didnt care how the unsc soldierw looked in four. Ther tech was nice, but they looked soldierw looked downgraded from reach. I hope if they show odst in halo 5 they dont mess them up. I loved the odst armor through the seriea. From 2, 3, odat, and reach

Yeah, we need ODSTs again. Too many rabid fanboys going around, pretending there are no ODSTs existing anymore.

Not to be debby downer, love the glee she exudes by the way, but a serrated knife like that may not be best quick stabbings, the teeth on the back make it harder to pull out.

Dragunalb Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Yep, it's a very old drawing. I now rather tend to let the knife be serrated only along half of it's length or do not make it serrated at all. I still need to think about it.

Maybe a few smaller or specialized knives (opening cans) as backup but besides of that, the sax is supposed to be her only close combas weapon. That's why she's specialized.

Yeah, the first series were really great. When he gave it to that other group, it became horrible, so I was really glad he reclaimed the series again. Still the longer he continued, the more it got repetitive, as in Arby just moping all day about how sad his life is and so on. The series were still good when it came to jokes but it got way too repetitive. I don't even know if he does videos anymore.

To be fair I never knew he transfered the series, I figured a few more people got in on it later but not that soon xD I got bored once the whole Claire(?) relationship thing and 'saving xbox' came into the matter xD If he's still making vids I want to know how he comes up with stuff to do

Nah, that LA part with the non Halo figures was done by another group of peeps. Those were horrible... Fortunately he took over again and brought it back to glory. Well until things got bored.
I stopped watching around that time too. I have no idea if he still keeps the series going.
