Great design work. I like the detail and the blend of the two worlds, Halo and feudal Japan. It sort of looks like the lovechild of Master Chief and Raiden. The necklace piece reminds me of Akuma from Street Fighter. I like the added flair of the cape as well, nice touch. Makes it look as though it's a breezy day or this could just be a dramatic entrance. I'm sort of seeing wind and lightning as he descends upon his enemies, you know, in my mind's eye or whatever. Th staff/katana bit is tricky though. Most katana's don't have such long handles. That's just sort of a side note though. I look forward to seeing this colored.

Its has what most would say Wow. The Amount of precise and Delicate detail make this stand out among the other renders. It is a job well done though the SKULL should be more round and has a very Pac-Man Ghost Look to it. The shading is amazing and looks as if he ready to go to war at nighttime. The bag on his side should have more areas to hold onto and strap to because it looks weakly supported. Because he is a Samurai, He/She Should have more decoration on the shoulder pads and gauntlets. The Loose Straps on his/her Helmet should be more round and look more wrinkled. The necklace or whatever that is should have decorations as well. Further more, Because he is Samurai, he should have a flag with the UNSC logo or Spartan Emblem on the back of his armor, such as the Elite Honor Guards of Brute Honor Guards from Halo 2.
Well done.

Very nice detail here. One thing I'd suggest though is to push the pose more. As of now he looks a bit stiff, especially because his left arm is pretty straight. You could also tilt the shoulders a bit more since one arm is relaxed and the other is raised. Tweaks to the pose can really help to push the character. Regardless, keep up the good work.
