The attention to detail is excellent. You also followed canon by giving his skin the pale, almost translucent look of a soldier who's spent more time in his armor, than in the sunlight. Bravo-Zulu, RexAdde!

I really like how you did his face - it reminds me of those rumors when people managed to get the texture file for his helmet and part of Chief's face could be seen (I've seen the image myself).

True, true; although if we knew everything it just wouldn't be fun. For example, that recently leaked image of Daft Punk slightly ruined the sense of mystery and wonder for them. I hope they don't reveal what he looks like completely, because then he's only a man as opposed to some sort of deity.

No problem, it was a very good pic of Chief. Did you see the novel quote i matched to your pic in the forum post? They both resembled each other perfectly.

Thank you. :D Yeah, I saw it. I tried my very best to make it as similar as possible to the descriptions of John in the books. I'm not happy about the nose and the ears tho. I should really fix it, but I'm too lazy, haha.

I kinda like it the way it is. I thought this look could be good because he is pretty old in Halo 4. But I totally respect your opinion. :)

I like to say this is entirely correct. it mirrors what his bone structre was as a kid, and a hardened supersoldier stuck in a suit would be as clean shaven as possible to remove itching. 

also i kinda like how you gave him the :iconimseriousplz: face XD

I like it :) i know John is not supposed to be unmasked but there is nothing wrong with imagining right?

I don't see what people are complaining about :) I like how you pictured him. John is not supposed to be prince charming

He still looks good, and this fits his description as far as i am concerned.

He looks like a monkey. His jaw bone is too far forward and doesn't fit his face properly. His ears are also too big.

Nice job!! I bet this was really painstaking to put together but I think it looks really cool! Halopedia does indeed put him in his mid/late 40's; but it does state cryo can either slow down or completely halt cell aging. It's possible physically he may have more in common with someone in their late 30's. However, with all the wear and tear, it might age him a bit anyways. I get why some people aren't in favor of stuff like this, but y'know what? I don't mind when people try to unmask the chief. In a way, that's kind of what 343 is doing with their new trilogy--showing us the more human side of him. He's not just a super awesome war machine. He's a person. People have names and faces. They aren't blank ideals we can all relate to and imagine ourselves being. And I thought they did a wonderful job with Halo 4. :) I've had three adventures with Master Chief. Pretty excited to have a few new ones with "John." But anyways, good job!! This is awesome!

I'm sure this was hard to do, so good work and all; however, a lot of Halo fans would prefer people don't do things like this. In all honesty, most of us don't want to see John's face. His character is so distinguished and unique, he's instantly recognizable and relatable without his face ever being shown. He's somebody that's been extremely loved over the last 11 years just how he is and, personally, I'd be perfectly okay with either his face never being shown or shown at the end of Halo 6, his last appearance. :no:

He probably had it cut like that before halo 2 and facial hair grows faster than head hair. Or it just needs to be short to fit in the helmet
