Halo: Cryptum Merse Creature by HalcyonBrush Halo: Cryptum Merse Creature by HalcyonBrush
Hey everyone. I've been working on a personal project that started out as my senior thesis in school. It's a few concept designs from some awesome literature! I've been reading this book called Halo: Cryptum by Greg Bear. It's related to the Halo game franchise, and I thought it'd be awesome to visualize some of the scenes in the novel.

This creature is called the Merse. It patrols a crater lake and protects an island, intimidating any in intruders. This creature is very large, hunting small whales and other larger fish.

I'd for sure be scared to see that thing, even if I was a Spartan. It is both very odd and (almost) peaceful, though I doubt the creature is anything but that.

Holy Sh$T! I didn't realize they were so huge! The forerunners were not messing around, were they?
