Welcome to the weekly virtual photography roundup hosted by Aaron Young from The AC Partnership Program.


Every week I will be picking our top 5 favourite Assassin’s Creed shots and showcasing them on The Ones Who Came Before website, in order to promote virtual photography and talented content creators within the community.  


Aaron is a keen virtual photographer and loves to post his journeys through Assassin’s Creed on Twitter.


Keep an eye on the site as more weekly shots are added, we are looking for captures across all Assassin’s Creed games. Tag your photos to the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture for a chance to be featured.


This week’s theme: Assassin’s Creed

 

Enter the Light


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @maddog7794



“The holy women Fulke is close by.”


Fulke is a member of the Order of the Ancients, and is also known as the Instrument. She is a devilish character who torments the Raven clan with her wicked ways. She inflicts a lot of pain on Sigurd and in turn makes herself an enemy of Eivor. This incredible capture of her tells the story of a troubled women seeking power. The lighting is exceptional, allowing Fulke to appear as a silhouette. I love how you can see the cross next to her head showing the faith she once had before turning to the dark side. Seeing her walk towards the light is a bit of a metaphor, after her failed attempts to destroy Eivor.  



The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week


Judge: Jack (@_Virtualtourism) - TOWCB Virtual Photography Team


''Fulke's silhouette standing tall breaking through the orange light of the evening sun as it pours through the forest trees, makes for an excellent shot. I feel this image best represents how I imagine Fulke saw her task when she first met Eivor and Sigurd. Represented by the cross on her back, her faith has led her to this moment, she will now lead Eivor and Sigurd into the next (or past) chapters of their lives. Amazing shot, well done Zatoichi!''

 

Silhouette


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


VP Artist: @AkillesDHero



“Spartans! Prepare for glory!”


Sparta, a small town in Greece is one of the most famous locations in history. Sparta had a reputation of being a production line for the most fearsome warriors. None more so than Kassandra, despite her conflicted upbringing you can definitely see the Spartan in her. This beautiful shot of her standing almost statue-like in front of that warming background is so delightful. The colour tones are captivating, and the silhouette of Kassandra is stunning. I adore how she has the Spartan helmet on but also has the trident on her back, this shot represents Odyssey perfectly.

Shield


Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins


VP Artist: @Lucascosta797



“I cannot shed my past like a snake sheds its skin”


Despite the Medjay shield being extremely popular it is actually the Alexander shield that you see Bayek with on most promotional material. It is a rare shield in the game that obviously once belonged to Alexander the Great. The winged scarab design fits the Egyptian setting perfectly. This photo flawlessly captures the shield and its impeccable design. I am a fan of the composition here as it allows us to see the shield mounted on Bayek’s back with few arrows still in the quiver. The use of shadows helps the golden wings of the scarab to shine, and I find myself constantly drawn it.

Desolate Land


Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins


VP Artist: @ophierian_vp



“The only thing that awaits you is oblivion”


Assassin’s Creed Origins is full of remote deserts for us to explore. The sheer scale of them is so impressive. Venturing into these isolated places is a dangerous pastime. Many suffer from hallucinations due to the extreme heat, something Ubisoft brilliantly added to the game. This remarkable capture showcases the very secluded feel and the minimalism of the shot is quite something. I love how Senu is gliding above Bayek and the shadow of him on the horse is epic. A perfect composition that highlights this striking capture.   

 

Synchronisation


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @TuridTorkil



“Not one of your prophecies do I understand”


Eivor’s destiny is hers to weave and the constant torment of Odin is a chain she would love to break. Life is never easy for the Wolf-Kissed and her battle against the Order and herself take its toll. She will always be the hero of this saga though. This incredible capture of her crouched atop a longhouse feeds both the Viking and Assassin vibes. You could easily see her performing the leap of faith from this point. The black and white style perfectly suits the shot giving it a classic feel. I love the vines connecting to her as they symbolise the roots of the Yggdrasil and Eivor breaking free of them. She is now free to walk her own path, and forge her own destiny.

 

And that sums it up for this week’s Assassin’s Creed virtual photography recap list!


Thank you for checking out this week’s photo collection. This would not be possible without the virtual photographers out there so a huge thanks to them. Until next week keep those shots coming in!
