Chief lipsync by jameson9101322 Chief lipsync by jameson9101322
My entry to the www.bungie.net weekly contest! [link]

I didn't win, but I was featured in the news post and that's exciting enough! Maybe the most disappointing part, however, is that I animated it and it was hosted as a static image, so I'ma need to rectify the situation.

I tried to upload the video here, but no dice. DA does not like any of my standard filetypes. If I get it ported to swf I'll try again. Until then click here for the Youtube video: [link]

Those unaware, this is the version of the Master Chief featured in my longwinded webcomic Company0051
:iconcompany0051:

Voice credit of course goes to bungie, it's one of Steve Downes' lines from Reach:Firefight I stole off youtube.

Were it not for my shred of decency, I would harass the living hell out of you until you submit this piece to Jessica Shea (BS Angel) at Halo Waypoint. Funny thing is, his face matches up with his appearance's description in the fiction.


Strong jaw - check.

Short, brown hair - check.

Serious eyes (they're pale blue in the fiction) - check.

Looks so handsome, Cortana had to make a comment about it when analyzing him with Dr. Halsey - check.


I think his skin color's a little paler than that, but otherwise, this is fictionally accurate! Pair this with the fact that after being in cryo-sleep for so long in the fiction, he has the body of someone around his mid 30s, despite being around for 45 years (still younger than Cpt. Lasky), this might as well be Master Chief unmasked!


Quick, somebody send this to 343i; make sure they don't make him ugly or old if they ever unmask him (they might overlook the fiction and give us some random Average Joe)!

If you enjoy this face, check out my webcomic :iconcompany0051: It's complete now, but John and this specific mug of his ran around DA for about five years :)

I've only heard the samples - and now this one - so far, but he is definitely going to be my Firefight voice when I've got the credits.

"Did'ja...miss me?"
I just got goosebumps. ^___^

Here are some of the best ones: [link] He's SO funny! To all those people who've commented on my comic saying that Master Chief's got no personality and doesn't smile... I think this sample will convince them otherwise.

Pffffft... Lawl. Okay, I'll be honest, after Reach I did kinda think the Chief was a bit of a soulless automaton with no personality compared to Noble Team, but now... this will make him easier to write at least, thanks for the link. xD

Don't get me wrong though, personality or not, the Master Chief is pretty much responsible for my fascination with big armoured supersoldier guys... ^^;

PS. And who couldn't love your version of the Chief? He's brilliant.

Fans of the automoton are the ones who don't like him ^^

I've always read a soul in John, the way he treats the other soldiers and the banter he has with Cortana always painted him as a humble business guy working hard for what he does but being at heart kind of like a regular guy who doesn't really have a home or family, so he's making the best of what he's got and what he's made for.

I think it was a couple of moments in Fall of Reach I hate that book so much... that did it for me. First off the fact that any of the Spartans would be so loyal to people that basically brainwashed and abused them as children irritated me no end, and then that other bit after the augmentations where a 14-year-old(?) John just flat out murders a group of ODST because he was ordered too... Something just was not right there...

But like I said, that's the book, not the game. Game-wise, he's nice enough... and that you can plausibly make him a nice guy is probably what I like best about your rendition. ^^

You've set me off now, I think way too deep about these things. xD

I've seen a lot of contention about the books. Some people really love them, others don't like them at all. For me I feel like bungie game canon is like A+ gold canon that is absolutely the truth and that book/not-bungie canon is like silver canon that you can kind of ignore if it messes with your story... then comic canon is bronze canon that you incorporate if you really want to. Then of course the honorable mention ribbons belong to all the fan stuff...
