Dreams in Which I'm Dying Are the Best I've Had by lonefirewarrior Dreams in Which I'm Dying Are the Best I've Had by lonefirewarrior
How does one sleep after seeing so much death and knowing there's much more to come? Do they dream of finally being released from this world, or are the dreams in which they die the least terrifying of all their nightmares?

The following is by :iconkushlukvonshimazu:
In the precious moments of rest between the battlefields of war, the companions focus themselves for the coming storm. They have faced death and loss many times, but as always the waiting is the worst.


Lovely Bitter ready to kill someone's dick.

Far less action than the first three but I think it sends a clearer message about what I'm going for in this series.

I probably should have saved this one for when I finally add Marcus Fenix to the team. Oh well.

See the rest of the series here...

Garry's Mod and Photoshop

DISCLAIMER:
This series is supposed to have a particular sci fi theme with universes that wouldn't canonically(is that even a word?) conflict with each other too much(example: Warhammer 40k people would not play nice with anyone here and therefore can't be allowed). That means no Solid Snake, Ezio, Link, Mario, Kratos, Nathan Drake, Cole MacGrath, no Bioshock, Ryu(the Street Fighter dude), Duke Nukem, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Fallout, Portal and anything else not similar enough to the universes the featured characters are from.

The title is great, because they've all wished they were dead.

Looks Nice. I know this white armor from somewhere (that one with the "DARPA" on the right shoulder), but i can't quite tell from where. Could you tell me?

I have never seen such a photo that had so much of my childhood in one pic. The models are amazing. The setting you have with it really brings out the emotion that we don't normally think about in a game. This is a powerful picture you have made. I give my highest praise to you! Keep up the fantastically amazing work!

Then the maker removed him I guess. There is still a Kerrigan model which is new, but it is her in human form, not the queen of blades.

 Always loved that song.

 I like the way this one's mood is in contrast to the other pictures which had epic action. I like that this one is more 'the calm before the storm' it's still awesome just in a a different way. :)

Alright, so beyond being totally amazing, I have to wonder if you are intruding on my mind (or me on yours, since this was posted before I came up with my idea by a couple of months).

Also, may I ask what games these are from?

:iconlonefirewarrior:

You say you came up with a similar idea yet you don't know anyone the idea is about.

 

Well okay then.

:icondomriso:
Domriso Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Ha, okay, my wording was kinda dumb. Let me rephrase.

I came up with a similar idea after gauntleting the Mass Effect series last August, namely the mixing of several different universes which carry a similar theme of "space marines" (I know, not a great term considering it's copyrighted, but it's what I used in my head). My concept was to mix Mass Effect, Halo, Dead Space, the Alien series (including AVP), Metroid, and Doom. Then I came across this picture via reddit and became enamored, not just because it's a beautiful picture tied to an amazing song, but because it looks like a glance into my own head. 

However, there are several characters within the picture that I don't recognize, and I am always looking for new material to mash into my crossover. 

I hope that explains it a little better!

I'm guessing the people you don't know are the ones in the back plus the woman next to Isaac Clarke. She's Lightning from Final Fantasy 13, the white armored dude is Sam Gideon from Vanquish, black armored guy is Jim Raynor from StarCraft and the woman next to him is Trishka from Bulletstorm.

Aha. Yes, those were the ones I didn't know. I thought that might be Lightning, but I wasn't sure, but the other ones I had no idea on. Very interesting.

Samus looked around. Only a handful of their team were still awake, and even they were starting to nod off. She thought about going to sleep, but she knew that the nightmares would return even more virtulent and angry than before. So she kept herself awake any way she could, from playing with a rubber ball she had found in the Normandy's cargo hold to simply counting the number of ridges in Issac's armor. Then, finally, she could fight it no more, and she slumped into a deep slumber.
And once again, the nightmares haunted her mind and made her rest fitful and harsh.
The chirping of Shepard's communicator woke her up along with everyone else, and when Shepard opened up the channel, Joker's voice came through.
"Uhh, sorry to interrupt your snoozing but there's a huge ship that just docked with the station and its captain wants to speak with you guys," Joker said, "so if you could just go and talk to him, that would be great."
"All right. Patch him through, Joker," Shepard groggily responded.
"You got it, Commander," Joker said, "patching him through now."
"This is Captain Lasky of the UNSC Infinity," a new voice said, "we're here to take you to meet up with your new teammates."
"Captain Lasky?" the Master Chief asked. "Is that you?"
"Chief? Lasky responded. "Yeah, it's me."
"Okay," the Chief then responded, "We'll meet you on the bridge."
He then turned to everyone else.
"Let's get moving," he said, "Capt. Lasky doesn't like to be kept waiting."

High tech sc-fi... Han Solo wearing looted armor?
Well, the Tau could function somewhat...
A Cybran footsoldier of some kind?
A GDI commando or Zone Trooper.

Who is everyone?
