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.
What do you think?

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!

I love how she holds his hood with one hand and touches his face with the other. DO LOVE. Do so love. Desmond. Juno. Love.

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.

Awesome art. :) Unfortunately the ending to three kind of destroyed my interest in the series. :(
