"...As we start to rebuild,
this hillside will remain barren,
a memorial to Hero's Fall.
They ennobled all of us...
and they shall not be forgotten."

this is really quite good though I cannot pride myself on my own digital works this is good the music and swaying grass are especially nice touches to the scene being portrayed here. in the future maybe you should try to add a bit more of that is not too complicated like someone standing before the memorial or even maybe a shift to nighttime of dusk rather than just dawn though this original effect is quite stunning but all in all this is amazing and I wish that I could do something like this and regret my shallow pockets that I cannot afford a good art program and curse my slow computer that refuses to run gimp
What do you think?

No problem, but quick question, how does someone add music to an upload on DA? I've been searching everywhere for a way to do it. Thanks.

I uploaded it as a.swf or flash file. That was, when you're editing your work in adobe flash, you can add music in.

Is that hat sgt.Johnson's?
cause it looks like it and i miss that old badass....

I think it is... all their hats look the same in a way... actually probably not, cause when Sgt. Johnson died at the end of Halo 3, he wasn't wearing his hat if I recall... meh, idk.

Every Soldier, Marine, Airmen, Sailor, Spartan, Militia, Civilian, Law Enforcement, ODST, Insurrectionists, and all the lives that fought against a Genocidal Enemy that wanted to destroy an entire civilization...
They all gave their lives to protect the human race, to protect our right to live among the stars and each other...
We never gave up nor surrender...it was not in their creed

No matter what they will always be remembered in the memories, the scars, the tears, the rebuilding, the survivors, dreams and all other ways...

They will never be forgotten for bearing that cross with honor, for many...

Remember Reach!
Remember the War!




Nice work on this...its really well done and i really like it :)

Hey man, I was wondering if you were fine with it if I were to do this [link]
Don't worry, that's not the default version right now, so if you're not cool with it's no problem for me to take it off.

What's the purpose of the site?

Floodgrunt Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Student Digital Artist
It says what it's about on the homepage, although for some reason the site wasn't available a few minutes ago.
The link to the default site is in my signature.
Here's what it says on the home page:

"Welcome to Armor Watcher!
This is the place to go to check out your own and other people's in-game armor quick and easy!
View your Halo 4 armor and share it on facebook directly, or get some nostalgia with the Halo 3 and ODST armor viewer, where you can put together your spartan just like in Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST!
In addition to viewing people's armor, we've recently added a Halo 4 screenshot extractor for those who don't have a windows PC or just don't want to download an unknown .exe program.
If you have any suggestions, feel free to drop by on the shoutbox page where we would love to talk to you about it.
In the meantime, please enjoy what we've got ready for you.
~ AssaultCommand"


Anyways, I might decide not to use your animation as it breaks the site for a Internet Explorer and perhaps other browsers when I use it.

This will be both a memory of what we fought for and what we are expected as soldiers to fight and protect to optain victory or die trying for the good of the human race. When a fortable foe at us we will not give up but, we will stand strong with our hopes dreams and brother/siters next to us, backs againt the wall, and nothing to lose just to protect others who should never face this nightmare. Never again will we face this nightmare.
