Art Asylum has revealed that there will be a Cortana, from Halo, for their Femme Fatale line. They have revealed an unpainted prototype.
Behind Every Good Master Chief…you’ll find a great AI. Meet Cortana, the UNSC Artificial Intelligence that helped Master Chief throughout the Halo game series (although she did get herself into a spot of trouble for awhile there). When DST first started looking at the Halo property, we thought of many of the normal categories, but I have to confess that my goal all along was to get Cortana for the Femme Fatales line of PVC statues. I did it! Microsoft had an image they called “Reaching to be Rescued” and I chose that for the basis of the pose. I wanted something that showed the full form and strength of the character but also implied some vulnerability. The base differs from that in the source image because, even though it is technically not game-accurate for the scene, I felt her chip was both the perfect setting for her AND the proportions are more in line with the rest of my Fatales. Sadly, a lot of the tweaks that were done as this piece developed are not readily obvious unless you were in on every update, so trust me when I say that a HUGE pat on the back goes to sculptor Bill Mancuso for being so tolerant of all of my adjustments to the piece. Painted images coming soon.
