MacGamer's Contest Giveaways: Santa Chief

I'm thrilled to hear that I'm one of the top five who won the contest. I'll give it to my bro since I have already purchased one for myself.

For those who don't know the rule of the contest:

You'll need to "Photoshop" (and by that we mean "digitally edit") Halo's Master Chief on vacation. 5 winners will get a free copy of Halo for Mac

The other four winners submitted in funny graphics. I especially like the one of Master Chief bungee-jumping. Very clever and simple.

I've completed single player mode (Halo) and enjoyed some parts of it. Most of the gameplays was too repetitive for my taste. The level designs (especially structures and textures) were mediocre at best. One of their strong areas is character design although I don't quite understand why they designed that alien midget that ran like the boy in 'Home Alone'. Halo's Multiplayer, on the other hands, is packed with fun! I totally love the idea of sharing the vehicle with several other players.

Application and Toolbar Icons for Strateges, a new game from Cliche Software

This was my first icon work that was partly done with a 3D app. It was also my first time using a 3D app. Photoshop were used to smooth everything up and did some hue adjustments.
