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 capture across all Assassin’s Creed games. Tag your photos to the #TOWCBWeeklyCapture for a chance to be featured.
This week our showcase is focused on Women of Assassin’s Creed a collaboration with @CreedScholars and @WIGVP
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Theme: #WIGVPEivor
This week’s first capture comes from @Amaya_Nocturna a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community.
First up this week we have Eivor amongst the flowers. This beautiful capture struck me upon seeing it in the community. The Wrath of the Druids hair style is my favourite in the game and I am impressed with how it fits both male and female Eivor.
I love the face and back tattoos, combined with the outfit you get a real grounded feel. The stunning scenery with the blurred effect and the awesome stance of Eivor all come together to produce a perfect photo.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Theme: #WIGVPKassandra
Photo number two comes from @Snowy_exe over on Twitter.
Photo number two is definitely up there with one of my favourite Kassandra shots. This striking capture is just so eye catching you cannot help but marvel at the details.
The black background with a hint of red is just sublime and it complements Kassandra’s outfit and face paint perfectly. The lighting is the real winner as you get to see Kassandra’s hair in all its glory. Although not necessarily an Assassin look, I think this maybe my preferred appearance for Kassandra.
Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins Theme: #WIGVPAya
This week’s third shot comes from @flyingfeather_g over on Twitter.
It is so great to feature the mother of the creed this week, given the announcement from PureArts regarding a new statue of her dressed as Amunet.
Although not as Amunet in this photo she still looks incredible. I feel like this shot sums up Origins so well, despite the absence of Bayek.
The capture is all about positioning and how it brings everything into focus.
The captivating pyramid in the background is just delightful, and Senu covering half of Aya’s face is genius. If Aya had been the mainprotagonist then this would have made a great box art.
4) NPC - Kyra
Game: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Theme: #WIGVPNPC
VP number four comes from @missroseplays a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community.
Photo number four is an outstanding shot of Kyra looking concerned. Romance options were slightly underwhelming in Odyssey as you always built up bonds, only for the character to simply disappear from Kassandra/ Alexios’s life.
I actually thought Kyra’s arc was pretty good and it’s nice to see her feature here. I really like the black background in this shot, as mixed with her emotions it fits the tone.
Fantastic work from Rose to create this, as taking shots of NPC isn’t always the easiest.
5) Female - Randvi
Game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Theme: #WIGVPFemale
The final capture of the week comes from @PodToGo a member of our Assassin’s Creed VP Twitter Community.
The final shot of the week features Randvi an unsung hero of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
She is Eivor’s chief advisor back at Ravensthorpe and a constant throughout the game. I don’t believe I have featured Randvi before so it’s great to have this enchanting shot of her. Once again the brilliant use of black backgrounds brings out the immense details of this character. Her hair is very reminiscent of Kassandra’s in the shot above. I love how the colours are so vibrant on her outfit.
A real powerful photo of the women behind the pledges.
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!
