The White Knight - Assassin's Creed 3 by Eddy-Shinjuku The White Knight - Assassin's Creed 3 by Eddy-Shinjuku
Photoshop CS6: Painting, Airbrushing and Illustration. 20 hours +/-

- Part of the AC's philosophy is about the blurred lines between good and bad, this art I attempt to show the pure depiction of both Juno and Des without the notion of who's playing protagonist and antagonist. So, to derived to a standstill conclusion is not ideal as it's a cycle of revolving truth and idealism; you just can't pick out the truth because it's a constant motion from one side to another.

- This depiction is symbolically prevalent in AC3. You have to complete the game to really immerse in the contradictory and 'elusive uneasiness' in the portrayal as it celebrates irony in a harmonious and serene atmosphere.

- My rendition of Juno is portrayed as pure, sacred, and almost 'motherly' looking, someone you aspect to provide guidance - almost angel-like. I believe this is her true nature. Though nothing is what it seems due to circumstance...as revealed in the game.
I believe she is broken within and driven to make things right in her own account. This has took a turn on things from what the First Civilization was planning all along; IMO in some ways Juno's action made her the first 'higher being' to become 'human'...a fallen deity.

CREDITS

- ImagineFX magazine Issue 88 and 89 for awesome resources and neat brushes.
- In game screenshots for Desmond and Juno references.
- Ubisoft for Assassin's Creed series.
- Will add more soon...

Amazing drawing with precise details & visuals. The angel (that oddly looks like Palutena from Kid Icarus) adds a mystical flavor to it. And if it wasn't enough, Ezio is drawn in the 2000ish way, which makes it even more unique. As recalled in Assassin's Creed's story, the main character goes into the 1700's via a virtual computer system (I think), which links every element of this drawing. If I had to grade that drawing out of 10, it would have had a higher mark than 10 out of 10 because of the precision and the technique used. Very well done.

This piece of art is quite amazing. It flows beautifully and it shows that Juno has some sense of power of Desmond (which, in a way, she does.)

Everything is drawn in great detail, from Juno's outfit to Desmond's jacket. Everything seems right on point.

The vision is clear in this picture and I have yet to see something similar to this, it's different. It has a great impact on me aswell, it's like, what's gonna happen next? What will Juno do with Desmond?

Overall this piece is wonderful, you obviously spent a lot of time on this and it paid off. Great work!

Awesome piece. I really love how you've used Desmond's hood design from the opening CGI intro and how you've made Juno's face not as dull and boring as it is ingame.

Thanks! I believe that hood design would have make it into the in-game model if this game was made for PS4/XB1.

I miss Desmond. When I saw the video after few sequences of AC IV and I'm talking about video where they're showing us that Desmond is really dead I thought about quitting this game. I hoped till I saw this video that he's still alive. That he survive, somehow. AC series ends with Desmond's death now it's just a game, one more game nothing more. Everything what they built was destroyed in this crucial moment. I'll finish AC IV but only because I've got big sentiment for this game but I'm thinking about giving up with this series. Desmond was the most important character. Connection between ages. Now we've got faceless character and pirate who cares only about money.

Maybe he's 'alive' in the machine the same way Juno was. Also, his picture is on the main screen in all the security rooms so you never know...

He's body is dead so he's dead. Live as a ghost is not something I call life. I said before I'll finish the game but I don't think I'll do this. I'm so bored of this game that even new DLC doesn't change anything. What's more game for PS 4 doesn't work good. The social sharing is not working and when you're playing multi you're disconnected so often that you're losing hope for game. In wolfpack some options don’t work, like extra points for aerial or focus or acrobatic kill. I hope you know what I'm talking about. On PS 3 I was on prestige 3 now I've to start from 0. In single player on PS 3 I finished 62% of the game and I collected everything on every location I've been. Now I've to start from the beginning. This is not for my nerves.

They got to his body so fast they were able to recover bits of him to study. What if they made a clone and ghost-desmond was downloaded into the clone? What if YOU were a clone in the last game and that's why there was an image of you on the screen? (We know you have to be blood related to Desmond somehow).

I've actually never played the multiplayer because I like gaming with people in the same room as me, not strangers online.

This is probably one of the best Assassin's Creed fanart out there. It looks original, it's aesthetically beautiful, and you've managed to portray the characters and their stories in a very accurate way.. :love: Love, love :heart:

Yup people are fast to forget about good ol' Desmond, I mean, apart from his avatars, I believe he is the main protagonist, and this tragic tale yet pretty just needs an art for it :nod:

yeah EXACTLY! I feel that sometimes Desmond is not enough appreciated in the fandom, and I was really sad with the ending of AC3, I hope we will be able to see him again on the next game. I think he is a very cool protagonist, so as your art:dance:

Talking about Desmond, I think we may miss him in AC: Black Flag; unless it's a spin off and not the main plot progression then it would make sense.
I don't like the idea that Abstergo can 'hack' into Desmond's memory, it cheating lol

I don't like it either. I don't know, something seems really off about his story, it just doesn't make sense that they made Desmond the ultimate assassin just to end him like that and continue the game with his ancestors. I still think that we will se him in Black Flag, probably like Clay in Revelations or something (I've read some really good theories about how the modern story can go on in BF). Guess we will have to wait to find out.

I think in the end he resolved it with his own decision knowing the gravity of the situation.

Despite that, it's sucks because no more Desmond; many may not feel it, but he IS the main protagonist ^^;

I actually got shivers when I saw this. The plot to this story is consistently keeping me on the edge of my seat and always will. ( I hope lol!) Juno *enter spoilers here* and her ties to Desmond are detrimental. I wonder how this will all tie up... Good work bro!

Yup, our Desmond that me followed since the start got caught ugly in her doings, this simply irritates everyone ;p
I guess now Ubisoft want us to see the 'bigger picture' as they let loose hell - at least now we know who we are against :nod:
So I'm curious and intrigue of what's the next installment going to be :w00t:
Of course it's not going to be subtle like AC1..

Anyways, many thanl for the view and support, cheers! XD XD
