The feels!  Ah, my feels!  I loved how Halo 4 took a risk and really expanded on John's character.  In the books, he's always had a little more personality; it's so wonderful to see them bring that out in a game.  I can't wait to see how they continue his story.  Wonderful job on this piece.  He seems so ....exhausted.  Lonely.  Like he's been overwhelmed by the realization that there's nothing left in his life that's "his."  He's empty.  He just lost the most intimate connection in his life--the only thing he had that was personal; not just professional.  And what's worse--he failed her. Just like a machine, he chose his duty over her.  And she ran out of time.  In the end, she saved him; and now, what does he have left?  You captured such a great mood.  Bravo! :D

The fact that he took the armor off at all is monumental, he really took what Cortana said to heart, about being a machine. People think that he's just armor and I think that he's always wished that too. John wants to be 'Master Chief', he wished that when he took off the suit there was nothing there. He probably didn't have to think about it too much until recently, now he has to question what he is. he's always been a machine. now he has to deal with the terrifying possibility that he's human.
I'm such a nerd XD

This should be the opening for Halo 5.

It shows the chief lamenting the loss of cortana with no one to comfort him.
