Grunty Birthday Party by AdamBurn Grunty Birthday Party by AdamBurn
Bam! said the lady.

Done as part of a request I got from a few people that seem to hate the Grunts from the game Halo, they wanted one being shot in the head with the funny as hell skull Grunt Birthday Party which, for those of you who don't know, changes the game so that when you head shot one of these cute critters their head pops with a frenzy of confetti and streamers and the sound of children shouting "YAY!!!!!!!". Personally I think they are quite adorable...

Anyway this was a painting taking about 3-4 hours, not sure if that constitutes a speed painting or not but I was tired of doing such long detailed paintings, I needed something loose to paint and thought this request was a good chance to stretch my painting skills further and experiment.

It kind of makes a sad moment out of what's usually hilarious. Very well done!

I love them buggers, although HALO 3 seems to have done a VERY good job to make them as ugly and unlovable as possible (frakking suicide-bomber grunts!). In H:CE and H2 however, they were quite kewt. :)

haha yeah it certainly lightens the mood, it also makes things a lot more funny if you add the IWHBYD skull, some of the things the enemy say are hilarious.

Turn on Catch, then you might not like them so much, since grunts carry the most grenades, i think or the same numbers as brutes but there are always more grunts than brutes.

Catch is crazy, me and my brother play halo 3 on mythic difficulty, which is legendary but with the mythic skull on as well as all the other except famine, blind, and iron. That is crazy the grunts don't stop throwing them with pin point accuracy. We still managed to beat the game though. Plasma pistol and BR for the win

yeah, my friend ran off with my copy Halo 3, along with a bunch of my other games, now i have to retrieve every game i've got on loan so that i can remember half of the games i loaned him before he moved south, bloody fan boy, he had his name legally changed to Felix Sephiroth XXXXXXX, should have been the first sign of demanding my stuff back i guess; oh well once i finally sort things out he's paying for postage to send it back to me.

Getting back on topic, I think i like ODST more than Halo 3 anyway, i think it has a more in-depth storyline and while the magnum/plasma rifle is an epic combo, i would have love to have had the BR in ODST. I've never really played with the skulls, and i don't usually have someone to tag team the game with me either but firefight mode turns them on one after the other with each successive round.

Haha no their heads don't explode when you shoot them, you never actually go against any on Halo 3 or ODST, shame really I liked fighting them they were cool. But in the new game Halo Reach the Elites are the main enemy so I'm happy

Kl, was just an idea for a follow up image, like e.g.- an elite hanging from a rope being whacked by masterchief

you know, in ODST, when you turn that skull on and shot one in the head as it's standing next to another one, the other one will cover it's eyes and rub them to get the confetti out of it's eyes.

oh yeah, I didn't think about the others dying too. sometimes you get a two for one with those exploding heads. Grunt Birthday Party has to be one of the best extras for a game.

I've only played about 20 minutes of HALO in my life (yeah, not for me so shuddup ;p) but I do remember the funny noises these guys made when shot and killed :giggle:

this sounds like something I would do - I love thinking of serious games and movies and turning them into child-friendly jokes...time to replace the guns in Grand Theft Auto with water pistols and silly string now :plotting:
