Halo 5 concept by LordKomodo Halo 5 concept by LordKomodo
I've always wondered after Halo 4 what would Halo 5 be like? After coming up with my own theory I looked up other ones to find one that was more believable and I found this www.reddit.com/r/halo/comments… When I read this and watched the Halo 5 trailer again and knowing the Halo lore it sounds pretty believable so I made a picture based on this. Now I know in the new graphic novels the Arbiter has this new look based off of the Halo 4 elites. I like the new look but in my eyes I felt the Halo 3 Arbiter looks better ( meaning how he looked as an Elite, not his armor ). From watching the Halo 5 trailer and from Chiefs appearance he looks like he's hiding from someone judging by the large cloak. Also his visor looks damaged so I'm guessing he got into some sort of fight. My guess is that he left The Infinity without permission to do so and was fired upon or he left with Lasky's help and got into a firefight later on.  
So yeah the Arbiters on the left, Chief is in the middle and on the right is my concept of what Medicant Bias would look like in Halo 5.

I like how The Arbiter wears the same Ring on his head as the Prophets used to.

Agreed, although I find 343's art style for elites cool it makes them look too animalistic. The elites in Halo 2 and 3 were better looking in my opinion. Also, the arbiters armor in the comic series looks too much like his Arbiter armor, he should have a more ceremonial or shipmaster like armor now that he's back in command.

The Halo 3 elites? you mean the gangly ones with the tooth pick wrists? I'm not a big fan of the art direction in 3, I find it pretty dull. I do like that they are keeping the Arbiters old armor design for Halo 5. At least, if the MC collection with Thel & Locke is of any indication.

Well if I was to choose from the Halo series which elites were the best it has to be Halo 2 and to be honest in my opinion Halo 2 also had the best campaign. The way the elites looked and talked in Halo 2 made them less brutish and more sentient like. When Halo 3 came out their armor looked cool but the elites looked more fierce and their teeth looked crazy but I still didn't mind the look. Halo Reach made them act and look more like brutes and 343's art direction was interesting but it too took away from their Halo 2 counterparts. When I saw Halo 2, it set the stage for not only it's story but the characters too. I do like 343's art direction and the new arbiter has a more fierce look but it still matches his voice and character so I'm happy with it.

The Chief kind of looks like he's leaning or something. However, I love what you've done for Thel. I can tell Mendicant Bias' look is based on that ancient-Promethean concept art, nice job there.

I heard a good suggestion about the cloak he is wearing, Somebody suggested to me that he's walking on whats left of reach, and that the sand is glass fragments, which are more abbrasive, needing a cloak to protect his armor's surface 

Not my own suggestion but its one i liked

John and Mendicant Bias both look astounding. I really love the way you've given MB a Human/Forerunner-like form, even he doesn't have legs. I've quiet a big theory as to where and why John is, that also including MB of course. I'm really looking forward more of your work.
I have to say I'm really liking your design for Thel. The armor retains the hierarchy like status as we saw in Reach, though I do think the mini holo-Halo is a bit much. I say that because it's reminiscent of the Prophet crowns. Nonetheless I prefer your version over the canon version. 

***SPOILERS BELLOW***




While 343i obviously kept the base armor the same, the upgrades are iffy. They make him look more like deity from the Roman or Greek eras, which it may be that way for a reason. However I'm still hoping that the helmet is just a ceremonial piece given the mission he is on.
If you're curious as to what he looks like here are some links:

This is all found in the new comic series Halo: Escalation.

Yeah the Halo was a bit much. I was looking to Jul 'Mdama's helmet for inspiration when designing Thel's helmet but I'm most likely going to alter it so his helmet is more " combat ready " than just a ceremonial piece. And to me the Halo: Escalation design for Thel doesn't fit the art style that 343 is taking up with the Halo franchise. In Halo: Escalation, Thel's armor resembles too much of the Arbiter armor and as you said it looks like something from the Roman or Greek eras. Thel is now a ship master so it would look way different than how it looks in Halo: Escalation. I do however give the artist credit for keeping the Halo 3 elite armor look. When Halo 4 came out I always liked the idea of the Separatists looking more like the Halo 3 elites ( armor and appearance wise ) and the Halo 4 elites ( the Didacts Hand ) have a more brutish look.

so what planet do you think Chief is on? I think he might either be on Reach's moon, The Ark, or possibly that Halo ring we saw in Halo 4 ^^ Though apparently Thel isn't Arbiter anymore. That leads to why he wears the cape (or cloak, whichever you want to call it)

I think Chief is on the Ark in the Halo 5 trailer. Judging by the giant sand storm could give hints to the Arks untstability after it was destroyed during the events in Halo 3. From seeing Chiefs large cloak I feel like he's trying to stay hidden from someone or something. Maybe he left the Infinity without permission and the UNSC thinks he's gone rogue or something else. Also his visor has been damaged so it seems like he was in a heavy firefight. But what makes me think that Mendicant Bias is the giant forerunner bird thing is that Chief doesn't seem afraid of it but instead holds out Cortanas chip so I think he's seeking guidance from him. In the terminals in Halo 3 Mendicant Bias speaks of correcting his sins and helping Reclaimer ( Chief ) so my best bet is that's him.
