"...I mean, if you want. It'd be no big deal."
"Sure."
"Okay. Friends."

Been wanting to do an illustration for this part from 'The Fall of Reach' for a while, and finally got around to it this week (though it still took 3x longer than I estimated). The timing is still good though, because the end of September is when this happens in the book. ^^ I'm also trying to get better at drawing children.

Actually no; in the books ('The Fall of Reach' to be exact) it clearly states that John has brown eyes and Sam has green eyes. 343i seems to be trying to retcon John's eyes to being blue, but that's just another sign that they have no respect for Halo canon and are just doing what ever the heck they want...
Arguments aside though, yes, Sam's death is so terribly sad. :(

...or maybe the genetic alterations the Librarian made to John 117 on Requiem, may have as a side-effect, resulted in his eye colour turning blue?

Not quite; because in the prologue of Halo 4 you see John as a child, and they show his eyes as being blue then too. It's simply an unnecessary retcon made by 343i, and one that I simply refuse to buy into because all it shows is that some fans know their own main character better than they do. :\

The 'Scanned' trailer as well as Dr.Halsey's flashback prologues aren't 100% canon. They are subjective to a lot of changes which many may view as a retcon, but I personally guess the prologue are the condensed thoughts of Dr.Halsey about her Spartan and his life.

You do have a point there, I've heard there's a bit of a debate as to "how canon" those flashbacks are...but still, if you're going to take the time to make an expensive CGI cinematic, I don't think it should be too hard to get the main character's eye color right. :\ Oh well, I'm still always going to make his eyes brown no matter what...

Anyway i like picturing them, John and Sam, respectfully with blue and brown eyes because it's rare having dark hair and blue eyes, blond hair and brown eyes and Kelly's blue hair (lol  just kidding her hair turned dark). I'm going to read the books again and I have already imagined Sam's return with the help of the Librarian if she can bring Cortana back maybe she can do the same for Sam. I know i am crazy and i need :help:

Talking about rarity and co-incidences
My best friend's mum has dark red hair and green eyes. Doesn't have freckles but is around an 6'0" in height and is a Taekwondo instructor. Does this remind you of a certain someone from Mass Effect or is it just me, because the facial features also seem to partially match?
