Halo 4: We go, together... by AndrewKwan Halo 4: We go, together... by AndrewKwan
For me, this about sums up Halo 4's ending and my personal take.

I'm rather satisfied with how this came out! I'm glad this ended up being my final piece of the year because now i feel like I'll have to beat it next year.

Roughly 20-24 hours in PS

Soundtrack: Solace, 117, Green and blue (Halo 4 score)

Edit*
I mentioned it in my rough layouts but forgot here on the final, but it's an homage to the Crisis on Infinite Earths cover of the death of Supergirl.

They should make a Halo 4:Heartbroken Edition, with sadder music when they talk about her death, and this as an ending

This drawing is amazing but it makes no sense, he is holding her yet she has no solid form, also, howwill he know where to go, the next few games will have players wandering around with nowhere to go and get lost and starve in the planet there on because they have no one to mark a waypoint for them

Isn't this also a reference to the death of Robin in the infamous story arc "Death in the Family"?

And as for the Chief, he has now lost Sam, Johnson, most of his fellow Spartan-II's, Cortana, and countless others. Will we finally see him snap in Halo 5?

I love this Picture so much it says so much about Cortana's and Master Chief's Relationship and I think I agree with one of the other comments this would have made a great ending scene for Halo 4 but the ending we got was still very emotional and heart breaking, So thank you to whoever did this It's a masterpiece in my opinion you captured so much just within a single image ^_^

i saw this and almost burst into tears i agree with you about the ending in my opinion  with Cortana dying you finally see chief break down from the strong solider from 1 2 and 3 and the boy who played a brutal game of king of the hill with his fellow spartan trainees the "demon" the covenant came to fear became a broken shell of a man who is now lost trying to figure out what to do next what his next mission is and were his way point is

I don't believe any other shooter game can make a bad ass main character like John melt away in one scene to be a man who has a lot of social issues so he can't make friends break down with the lose of some one who was a copy of his spartan "mother" Halsey. I don't see that in call of duty at all the bad ass character just remains crazy and bad ass in black ops at the end

"The heroic 'Green Knight' loses his beloved 'Sapphire Angel' after winning their greatest battle together."  I definitely felt the same way after completing the campaign.  Beautiful interpretation of what feels like the saddest scene in the Halo franchise.

Johnson's death was also saddening, and actually impacts this scene in profound ways, as essentially John feels like that he has failed both Johnson and Cortana in his promise to always take care of her. Couple that with the hard losses he had taken over the course of the Great War (the death of Sam, the fall of Reach, seeing countless lives snuffed out and scores of worlds burned beyond recognition), it's going to lead to some very interesting implications in Halo 5.

Definitely true.  It's going to be intense, and it will also be interesting to see how the Arbiter and Agent Locke will handle talking with John as individuals and as a team.
