Delta Unmasked by Lostro Delta Unmasked by Lostro
A fanart of Delta from Bioshock 2, the baddest mofo in Rapture.

I always wondered how badly mangled his face was behind that glowing faceplate, given that he underwent brutal surgical atrocities and mutilations to be turned into a Big Daddy.

He actually came out prettier than I imagined...

Actually, the Alpha series weren't grafted into their suits, unlike the latter Big Daddy types, though they probably underwent heavy biomechanic augmentation, not to mention some serious, forced splicing.
Still, they remained mostly human.

I don't even want to THINK about what's under the helmet of a Bouncer or Rosie. The Lancers and Rumblers can't be that bad, considering they're later, more refined models.

This looks amazing :D. It has a sad look at the same time. You did a really good job with this :)

Really there just skin and organs crafted in a suit as doc souchong staes in the first game
The-Artist-64 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The Alpha Series could remove their helmets. There was no organ grafting for them.

He looks so scary and yet so badass.

This really is epic!
I'm sure Delta's face is veeeeery messed up with all that splicing.
Also this reminds me of Nemesis.

Holy shit, I really hope they don't look like that beneath the helmet.
garybarnett Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014
That's what delta really looks like?!... Cool. Makes me think of Jason Voorhees.
MasterAssasin639 Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2014
I thought he would only be spliced. He was the only version not to be built into the suit in any way XD
Richard1235 Featured By Owner May 16, 2014
He looks like a beast that will eat your face an rip your body in half with his bare hands.

and yet he has the heart of a father who will never hurt a child and beat the shit out of anyone who would

well done dude.

Well, I've seen worse. He's more «monster-badass» than creepy to me.

I wish that at the end of the game, that Elenore toke off Delta's mask and we could have seen his face, but maybe we'd only see it if we got the good ending.

goodbye subject delta. like noble team, you were lost, but never forgotten. :iconlighterplz:
StrykerArmy Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014
Noble were great heroes. They allowed the Halo events to unfold by getting Cortana to the Pillar of Autumn. The most heroic wasn't Carter it was Noble 6, he delayed them long enough to let the Pillar of Autumn leave the planet. What Halsey said is a lie, the Helmet is still there.
KyleShepard313 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
you're damn right mate. they were heroes each in their own right, and i mourned six's death as if he were one of my squadmates. and, he was, in a sense. i saw the war between the covies and the UNSC through his eyes, and i feel we're connected somehow. we're both the first to drop, and the last to leave. and while he may be a marine, and i served in her majesty's military, i still feel the two of us would've been brothers in arms indefinitely. he who dares, wins, six. you will not be forgotten.
StrykerArmy Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014
The war is still going on and I would fight to the bitter end just for Six and Noble's legacy. The UNSC can win, for the Human spirit will always remain and hope, the last element left in Pandora's box, will never be given up. The human spirit cannot, I repeat CANNOT be contained. By Covies or by Forerunner alike. They say they hold the mantle of responsibility? I say that we do.
KyleShepard313 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
indeed it is, and i'd fight tooth and nail, gun and blade to keep my squad alive. there is no greater honor than to fight by a spartan's side, that much is certain. whether it's NOBLE team, or john 117, i'd fight alongside them until the bitter end myself. but the arbiter proved that not all of the covenant are truly evil. they're merely following orders, and sometimes, orders change. and the orderers become your enemies because of it. so we must not hate the sangheili. instead, we must respect them. the loyalists that still ally themselves with the covenant are brave, there is no denying that, but they are also foolish. they blindly follow the prophets' will, like lambs to slaughter. but, that doesn't mean we can slaughter them just as blindly. we must give them an honourable death, so that they may respect us in turn, in the afterlife. remember jun's words 'i kill the enemy, but do not hate them.' and take these words to heart. for they ring true, no matter what may come of the war.
StrykerArmy Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014
The prophets are fools. For they believe that the Halo rings will bring salvation. It will only bring destruction. For they are the ones who order the Covenant forces to do their whim. To fight alongside a Spartan for us is like fighting next to a god, a Super-Soldier capable of combat efficiency like no other. For I would gladly undergo the pain in real life to become a Spartan or at least have the honour of fighting alongside one.
KyleShepard313 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
indeed, it's rather sad that the prophets believe themselves to be instruments to their 'gods', when they themselves are are fools. their religion is bullshit, but so long as they supply me with covies to kill, i'm as happy as a clam. because those covies that stayed on, they're no smarter than fools. and herds of fools must be thinned. indeed, my enhanced senses of smell, and my gut feeling that danger is coming don't amount to what spartans can do, what they can feel. to become one would no doubt be unbearably painful, but the result would be well worth it, given you'd be a super soldier able to reduce any enemy resistance to ash. but at the same time, you'd be used as a puppet, forced to carry out orders given to you by those who would send you to your inevitable doom. and i don't know about you, but i disobey orders if it feels like if the conflict with my current physical condition, especially if it feels like a suicide mission.
StrykerArmy Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2014
Those who carry out a suicide mission are either extremely stupid or extremely loyal.

Very nice... I wouldn't be surprised if the man known as Delta would come to be this Big Daddy
Jackoman Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
From what I understand about subject Delta and his Series.

They likely looked like that. As they didn't undergo the skin-grafting to their suits, and could be serviced and given maintenance regularly.
muddyscarecrow Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013
He looks kinda like Nemesis from Resident Evil 3. I LOVE IT.

I was wondering just how messed up delta was under his helmet. At least he doesn't look like a splicer.
Awesome work! :D
Starry-Bat1 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, how accurate can this be? I swear if he actually looked like that, I would be amazed, but, then again, they made Delta all spliced up before the armor got grafted onto his skin.
Good job!
Fenrize Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The Alpha series Big Daddies didn't have their armor grafted onto their skin but the later models did.
Starry-Bat1 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah, I didn't realize my mistake until AFTER I put my comment on. I do recall the opening to Bioshock 2 and the Minerva's Den. Then again, I don't think when I'm typing so, meh. :dummy:

Don't forget he was dead for ten years or something.

At least he wasn't grafted to the inside of his suit.
