Lovers of Halo (or of art in the most traditional sense) should dig these images from artist Eddie Smith, who over the years has worked on several games in the epic sci-fi saga.

The more recent the games are, the more modern the art, but my favourites are Smith's pieces for the first two Halos, which unlike just about anything else we ever show you in this feature, were drawn using marker pens. On paper.

That's pretty rare! Not to say many artists don't still use good ol' pen and paper at some stage of the creative process, but it's not often these days you see pieces good/important enough for watermarks and a portfolio showcase to have been made using paper instead of something like a tablet.

Smith has also worked on games like The Agency, Mark of Kri and FEAR 3, so you'll find some images from those games below as well.

You can find more of Eddie's art at his personal site.
