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


 

Shadow Walker


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @TuridTorkil



We start this week’s showcase with a menacing shot of Eivor in a tree. You have to admire the use of vignette here as it adds great mystic to the capture. I especially like how it frames Eivor along with the tree. The whole ambiance of this shot screams Sceadugengan as Eivor becomes a creature of the night. The hood and tattoo combo really intensify this feel, and the shadow across her eyes is just phenomenal.


 

Peaceful


Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla


VP Artist: @SelkaPlays



Photo number two is all about relaxation. This beautiful shot from Valhalla reminds me of the many hours I spent roaming England’s countryside. I love the balance of nature and the old Roman buildings, coupled with the sun breaking through the windswept tree. There is such a richness of colour in this shot. Hopefully we will get images such as this in the upcoming World of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla book.


 

Elysium


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


VP Artist: @guyinspacesuit



Up next this week we have Ikaros scouting the immediate area. It never gets old using our bird companions to see what wonders or dangers lurk ahead of us. For a VP artist it’s even more satisfying as you are able to produce spectacular shots such as this one. I adore the colours in this capture, from the blue of the waterfall right to the purples of the flowers below. Every inch of this photo is magical.


 

Modern Day Assassin


Game: Watch Dogs Legion


VP Artist: @Syntia_BH



Mixing it up a little for photo number four, as we enter the world of Watch Dogs. I love this shot of Darcy on a motorbike patrolling the streets of London. Epic blur effects in the background add so much to this capture. When I see photos like this it makes me long for a modern day Assassin’s Creed. Darcy was so well received by the fans and with Aiden’s connections to Assassin’s Creed, it would be a shame if the developers never get to expand on it.

Athenian


Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


VP Artist: @kingforever008



We end this week’s showcase with a beautiful shot of Kassandra exiting the water. She looks so good in this armour set, the owl on the hood is a real standout. The blurred background is used to great effect as it bolsters Kassandra’s presence. You cannot get away from that incredible water effect though, along with the light reflecting it is visually spectacular.



The Ones Who Came Before Photo of the Week: Judge: Colum Blackett // Col_96 (TOWCB Community Admin)


This shot really stood out to me as it perfectly resembles 'the calm before the storm'. The ripples of the water and still nature of the shot give it a peaceful aura, something rarely seen in Assassin's Creed. Kassandra looks like a completely different character to the one we know, and could easily be mistaken for the leader of a nature worshipping cult whilst wearing this armour set. I think @kingforever008 did a great job with this capture, as the picture feels alive.


 

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!
